I recently went grocery shopping and decided to buy some sugar free chocolate candy. The sugar free Hershey's candy has 25 carbs per serving/20g sugar alcohol. The Russel Stover sugar free mint patties has 26 carbs per serving/23g sugar alcohol. I don't have the regular chocolate candy nutrition facts but I am not sure that sugar free candy is better than regular candy. I do know that a small Reese cup has 9 carbs. The sugar free candy is about $2 per bag and there are only a couple of servings per bag. About twice a week I indulge in a few snack size pieces of regular candy. I have become quite the label reader. It takes me 2 hours to go grocery shopping!
