Wal-Mart. They were cherry, blueberry and apple. This was an impulse
purchase. I was tempted by the low price and the "no sugar added"
on the label. I ate them all. I was hungry.
I should have know better. I read the ingredients a little too late.
They all have Maltitol. I have run into Maltitol before. Usually it
gives me gas really bad. Although it is frequently used as a sugar
substitute in a many different products, maybe it should be illegal.
"Sugar alcohols" in general tend to cause intestinal problems...

If I were to eat a small piece (14g) of dark chocolate every day, I think that I would eat it in the morning because that is when my blood sugar would the lowest. I tried this once, and it didn’t work because I couldn’t resist eating more than 14g per day. (Studies showed that 14g prevented high blood pressure and stroke, but more than 14g per day caused weight gain due to the excess sugar.)
