Sugarfree hard candy
« on: June 14, 2010, 09:24:32 AM »
Hi all,

Just to let you know, I've found a package of sugarfree lemon drops at Walgreen's (Walgreen brand) for only 99 cents.  They're actually called Lemon Discs.  They're quite good. 

I've also found sugarfree Jolly Ranchers at Walmart in the candy section with the sugarfree candy.

Thanks Becky.

I really like the Tic Tac Big Chill mints.  I've had the paradise mint, but they also come in cherry.  They have xylitol, which my dentist recommended, so they are a good alternative to chewing gum because I have TMJ.

Be careful,....alot of those sugar free candies have sorbitol and mannitol as sweetners..and they can cause major stomach distress. I never had so much gas/bloating in my life.
Alot of gum also has it too...I always read the labels now.
