At a former job I kept a bag of sugar-free peppermint patties on my desk.  There were about 20 in the bag.  It was a new bag and I ate two.  The reason I never ate more than three at a time was the warning on the bag that read:

"This product contains sorbitol.  Excessive consumption of this product may result in a laxative effect".

The next morning there were five candies left in the bag.  All of my coworkers left my candy alone since I was the only diabetic in the building.  I suspect one of the cleaning crew indulged and then spent the next few hours in the bathroom.

You reminded me of this:

The reviews are a thing of beauty and a joy forever, if a trifle gross.
If wisdom’s ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

My local grocery store use to have sugar-free gummi candy and I am not surprised by those reviews (you can guess how I know they are telling the truth :P >:D). I have no problem with sugar-free hard candy, mints, gum, or chocolate. But there's just something in gummi candy that's just evil.

I have some sugar-free honey at home that I use on the rare occassions that I want to have pancakes.  Pancakes are carby enough - adding regular syrup would be disastrous to my blood sugar.  So I use the sugar-free stuff and just plan on not leaving the house for a few hours.   Yeah, it's a rare treat.  lol

Sugar free honey? How does that exist?

It's not honey, it is a sweetened liquid flavored to taste like it.

So no one here is surprised that I now keep sugar free gummies at home for my last ditch effort when I need a laxative? Anyone else think that this is a good idea.

I know it works. Trust me on that.

Yep, I have some at home. It's flavored malitol syrup. It taste pretty good, but use very sparingly.

Got it at Walmart.

Oh, THAT stuff! 

Mom is a diabetic, I'm familiar with malitol syrup.  Remember Sweet 10, too?

Maltitol is also used in SF chocolate and ice cream.  The other problem with it is that SF chocolate melts faster than normal stuff.
