Almost February

As Valentine’s Day is coming up, the candy and decorations are displayed around now.  I recently bought a small bag of an old name brand peppermint which said No Sugar in large letters on the front.  No artificial sweetener in it as I had already learned about and shared in my blog of 4/1/20 and repeat of 1/7/21.  I liked the taste.  But I went home and investigated it to discover it contains maltitol, a kind of sugar alcohol.  It spikes up the blood sugar.  It’s definitely something to stay away from if you have diabetes.

It’s an example of the marketing corporations here are getting away with.🥴
