Ugh. I hate SF candy. First, it’s gross. Second, there are the lovely side-effects (read the package if you don’t know what I mean). Third, the carbs aren’t significantly different from regular candy. And the big fourth that makes me the most irritated is that it’s such a marketing scam. People don’t read the labels or don’t understand what they’re reading if they look at the label, and marketers take advantage of that. they charge twice as much, give you half, and for what? Crappy candy that makes you crap and isn’t worth crap for controlling BG’s.
You’re right, Misty… WTF?
Admittedly, I’m in the all-things-in-moderation camp, so I can deal with having a little bit of the real thing without overindulging and destroying my BG (plus the insulin helps), but if you’re going to treat yourself to 15 carbs worth of candy, do yourself a favor and eat the real stuff.
