PSA: Tic Tacs are NOT sugar-free



Recommended Posts

Oh, tic tacs, those delicious little 2 calorie mints can cause some serious issues if you're thinking about having them. Serving size: 1 tic tac, Calories per tic tac: 2. Sugar, according to the box: 0 g.

But my title isn't a lie. That 0g of sugar is a sneaky little brat. It's actually 0.5g of sugar. So, the more tic tacs you have, the more sugar you're taking in. Also, the calories do add up, but with how little calories you're taking in per day as a bariatric patient, that matters far less than the sugar. Guess who had a blood sugar crash due to an insulin spike due to too much sugar...

Well, I had these mini-containers and they had about 8 in each... and I had a total of four containers... so, 64 calories, 32 g of sugar.

In less than an hour. Back when I was doing low carb in high school (Got down to 190-ish), tic tacs were my go-to "low-carb" candy. I thought they might be okay here. I was wrong.

Good to know! I can eat an entire plastic little container of the orange tic tacs. Before surgery of course. They are delicious!
