Sugar Free Candy



Recommended Posts

I mean this in the very sweetest way possible...throw that stuff out! Like seriously, donate it to someone, or throw it the eff away! If you truly can't control your portion. If you can control your portion and it doesn't send you praying the porcelain god, or make others dive for their gas masks, and you use them once in a blue moon as a treat, I have to believe they are a better alternative than the real stuff.

As someone else explained, and I truly believe this, IMHO the dose makes the poison. 1 piece which is usually 1/4 to 1/3 of a serving is pretty low-ish on the crap-o-meter--but 1/3 or 1/2 of a bag, not so much. Right?

I've never really understood sugar free candy for people that aren't diabetic. It pretty much has the same empty calories (or just slightly less) as sugared candy plus it has those cough*** unfortunate ***cough side effects.

Yep. That will do it. Gum is a great option

Careful with gum! It can cause extra painful gas (increased air from chewing) in our small pouches!

Please follow the serving size on sugar free hard candies. One ingredient causes explosive diarrhea if you choose to eat more than the recommended serving.

This!! When I was pre-op I splurged and had sugar free reese's cups! It was awful. I ate way too many and ended up so sick.
