If you're a fan of sweets, there's no reason to eat sugar. If ou have a sweet tooth craving, there are *always* options that do not involve sugar. CarboLite has sugar free gummy bears that literally have 0g of net carbs - only sugar alcohols.
I have mostly weaned myself off of candy - but there are times that I'm hanging out and get a craving for something sweet. With these gummy bears, I have a very tasty, nicely textured snack that is perfectly flavored and sweet. There's no off flavors, no strange graininess. Sweetened with maltitol, there's also no carbs at all. I can eat a full serving of the bears and not have any impact at all on my body weight.
Now of course, some people are sensitive to maltitol and sugar alcohols. If you're one of these people, start with just one bear. See how your body reacts. Most people won't have any issue at all. A few people are sensitive. Unless you're one of those sensitive people, I highly recommend you check out your local CVS, store or website to get yourself a few gummy bears to keep on hand.
