SparX Halloween Candy
**Disclosure: I received a sample of SparX in order to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own and may differ from yours.
Ok, so I’m a little late with review, thanks to being sick (going on 4 weeks now). But candy isn’t only for Halloween. Besides, SparX candy is available throughout the year. We weren’t home for
Halloween this year, so we didn’t hand out candy. But if we had, SparX would have been on the list.
Have you ever tried SparX? They are really good and I love the little packets they come in. I had first heard of SparX last year before Halloween and I’m always on the lookout for candy that is better for you.
SparX Candy: What it is
SparX Candy made by Xlear (www.xlear.com). These candies are made with all natural xylitol instead of sugar which offers many health benefits, including helping to prevent cavities! I have reviewed Xlear products before, Kids Xlear Nasal Spray and Xylitol Xlear Sinus Care Spray, so I am somewhat familiar with Xylitol.
SparX tiny bite-size fruit-flavored candies are a new sugar-free candy line sweetened exclusively with all-natural xylitol. Xylitol is an all-natural sweetener derived from corn cobs, birch trees and other natural sources, and is similar to sugar in taste and texture, but with unique health benefits not found in other sweeteners. Xylitol contains 40 percent fewer calories than sugar, has a net carb level of only 0.4 per gram, and has minimal impact on blood-sugar levels, making it an appropriate sugar substitute for diabetics. Xylitol is absorbed slowly by the body, resulting in a low glycemic index of seven compared to sugars index of 83.
SparX Candy: Overall
In my opinion, I really like the taste of SparX. It has a fruity sort of flavor. It’s nice when you can just let them dissolve in your mouth. However, I like to crunch my candy and my husband is always yelling at me. The kids really like them too and they don’t need to know that they are good for them. And it makes me feel better knowing that it’s good for them too.
SparX Candy: Where to Buy
**A word of caution: The only thing I worry about it that you have to make sure that pets don’t get a hold of any of them. Xylitol can kill them. I always make sure that the animals aren’t around the kids when they are eating them.
