I have a weakness for gummy bears, but on the Atkins diet we are trying to avoid sugar-filled candies and treats. Luckily CVS has come out with a sugar free gummy bear using Hydrogenated starch hydrolysate!
You can read more about Hydrogenated starch hydrolysate - in essence it is a bulk sweetener that adds a nice consistency to candies and chocolates. It is a healthy alternative to sugar and starchy ingredients.
The CVS gummy bears come in red, orange, green, yellow and white. They have a nice bite-their-head-off consistency and tasty, mild flavors. While other candies in our house come and go, we always have a few bags of these gummy bears around. We've served them to countless friends and family members, both low carbers and sugar eaters, and they've been loved by everybody.
If you want a special gummy bear treat to nibble on, and maintain your Atkins or low carb diet, these are perfect!
