I was learning this week how there are several halachic opinions about what bracha to make on sugar. Haetz, Hadama or Shehakol. I believe in this halachah they were discussing sugarcane. Nowadays most sugar is made from sugarcane or sugar beets. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sugar
Is the proper brachah still Shehakol on sugar/candy?
Assuming we do make a Shehakol on candy, is this because of a safek? If its due to a safek how should we handle the issues that arise when other foods are brought to the table with similar brachos?
