*Review* Xlear Sparx, Candy?

 Good Morning! Hope ya'll have been having a great week. Do you have your baking list done? I don't have it down yet. I love to bake a few goodies to display on a platter for both my grandparents for Christmas morning/bunch. But over the years most of my family members have become diabetic and I'm sure I'm not far behind. So, it's hard to find baked goods that everyone can enjoy without breaking my budget. I also have some family members who are picky about the "Artificial Sweeteners" because they leave an after taste.

But I now I know what kind of goodies I will for sure ad to some stocking stuffers this year.... SparX!

I was given the opportunity by Moms Meet to review these awesome products as well as some toothpast, also made with the same sweetener as the candy. You can find more information about Moms Meet at www.greenmomsmeet.com.

What is SparX?
  • It's Candy! A growing line of healthy, xylitol based candy.
  •  It's sweetened naturally with Xylitol, plant-based, dentist-recommended sweetener
  • The sweetener, Xylitol, doesn't interfere with the body's blood sugar levels
  • It's available in three different flavors (Berry, Citrus, and Fruit
  • It's free of artificial colors and flavors
Okay, so what's Xylitol? It's a naturally occurring sweetener! It's found in most fruits and vegetables as well as nuts and berries! It's just as sweet as sugar with 33% less calories and as I mentioned before, safe for diabetics! It is also recommended by doctors because it actually helps reduce cavities and lowers ear infections! Speaking of "Good for you" they are manufactured by Xlear, Inc which has other health-enhancing products like Xlear Nasal Spray and also a line of oral care products and XyloSweet which can be used in cooking and baking. You aren't out an arm and a leg either; Xlear SparX Candy retails for $1.49/tube.
Before reviewing their products I had not hear about Xylitol, but now I have told my grandparents and have been looking up recipes I could use with it and it's endless! I'm so excited! I totally feel GREAT giving my girls SparX as an after school reward and they have no idea it's healthy for them. Before SparX my girls would always beg for a lollipop or some other chewy candies (from our candy stash) but I would often say no because I don't want them to eat it daily or even weekly, if I can help it. I would definitley look into replacing our stash with other candies made from Xylitol.

My girls love them! After homework and chores are done I have been letting them "Eat and Play!" I put out a towel on their table and they actually play with the little SparX balls; separating by color or making shapes with them too. But don't get me wrong, they will eat them!

I would recommend SparX to anyone and everyone who has or may become diabetic and with anyone with children.

In my area they are available at our local health/natural food stores. If you're interested in cooking/baking you can order a cookbook from their website HERE.
