Sugarless Candy Treats

Once upon a time if you were hypoglycemic or diabetic or maybe on one of those low carbohydrate diets, you were prohibited certain foods that could trigger unhealthy reactions in you body: Namely, sweets. Yes, that wonderful delicacy, CANDY. The day sugar became public enemy number 1, is the day you lost the freedom to consume your favorite treat and had to expunge all sugar from your home, system, and memory.

Well, of course, in the 60's and 70's and maybe even further back, there were sugar free candies. There were those little lollipops the dentist always gave the kids. And, there were also chocolates. I even tried a couple of them. Hummm! Let me see, what can I say about them? Oh, yes, they were tasteless and waxy: So much for sugar free candy back then.

However, there is great news for those who have to remain candy less! New discoveries in the food industry have provided us with many choices of delectable goodies we can indulge in. Oh, there are still the cute little lollipops the dentists give out ( I actually resorted to stealing those from my kids once.) But, today there are so many choices in other sweet treats to choose from. Everything from no sugar added chocolate almond bark to sugarless toffee bits. The selections now are immense. Hooray! Not only do we have many chocolate goodies to choose from, but we can also indulge in a great selection of that American favorite ( made famous by President Ronald Reagan ) the Jelly Belly.

Now, in the recent past, some companies have come out with low carbohydrate chocolate bars, but many who tried them, while loving the taste, had a negative reaction in the tummy. Yes, they got upset stomachs and, therefore, couldn't eat the little yummies! Now, due to newer sweeteners on the market, the taste is not only great, there are few negative, laxative type effects from consumption. Yes, those of us who are glycemically challenged can now safely nibble away on our sorely missed candy morsels.

So, take heart! There are new discoveries every day that help those who are forced to live the candy less lifestyle, and now there are many, many choices with which to titillate our palates. So go ahead and enjoy, who says you can't have candy?
