National Candy Month – as if you needed another reason to eat candy. But as long as you’ve got to celebrate, we thought we’d try and make it a bit healthier for you.
We have tried a number of sugar-free candy options for you to see which ones meet our rigorous sweet tooth standards. It was a rough job, but somebody had to do it!
Here are some really good “Sugar-Free” or “Low Sugar” alternatives we feel you should definitely try.
Stevita https://amzn.to/3yPkf7X For those that are into hard candy, these stevia sweetened treats are a wonderful substitute for lemon drops and similar lozenges.
Smart Sweets https://amzn.to/3jTsqvC Think almost sugar-free Swedish Fish, gummy worms, red licorice and the like. Sweetened with Monk Fruit and Allulose. Only 3 grams of sugar in an entire bag that contains 9 to 10 pieces, as opposed to 4 to 6 grams in every piece of regular Swedish Fish.
Lilys Chocolates https://amzn.to/3yMK5tr A full line of delicious stevia and erythritol sweetened dark and milk chocolate bars and candies. Also, chocolate chips for baking.
Russell Stover Sugar-Free Candies https://amzn.to/3tmXhny A large variety of sugar-free (Stevia and Maltitol sweetened) chocolate caramels, mints, peanut butter cups, pecan delights as well as hard candy and more.
Scrummy Gummy Bears https://amzn.to/3omcQhn Taste and texture of classic gummies with no sugar, no artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners. Only 1 gram of net carbs per bag. They also have a line of caramels.
There are a lot of other sugar-free candies out there. Check https://amzn.to/3q79I9o to see if there is something that might tickle your tastebuds.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Just because it’s healthier doesn’t mean GO CRAZY!
Enjoy, but enjoy sanely.
