Who needs Ex-Lax?
I thought I was going to die. Cramping, bloating, severe diarrhea, rectal bleeding and total exhaustion. It took me a few days to realize I didn’t have the plague but the new Brachs star brite candies I bought from Amazon were killing me. It says it is made with Splenda on the front of the package so I figured it would be a good sugar free candy. Guess again, the main ingredient on the label is Isomalt. Some kind of synthetic sugar substitute. It even says on the rear cover that excessive consumption can cause a laxative effect. A serving size is 3 candies. I should have just ate poison. This is not food.

Hard to find and addictive.
My wife was addicted to the sugary version of these and she has always hated the taste/aftertaste of any artificial sweeteners. Now that she has tried this sugar free version she is just as addicted but taking in less calories. I can’t explain the reviewer who developed illness and thinks the candies are the cause. My wife has the most sensitive stomach and digestive tract and these do not bother her at all. In fact the reason she has always eaten the Star Brite or Starlight mints is that they help settle her stomach. She suffers from diverticulitis and is prone to attacks of diarrhea so she doesn’t go anywhere without these mints. The sugar free version is very difficult to find locally so I’m thrilled to buy them buy the case on Amazon.
Best sugar-free peppermint to be found
As a former sugar addict, I’ve spent a lot of time and money looking for sugar free substitutes for when I need a little something sweet. There are several SF mints out there but the Brach’s Star Brites are the best, in my opinion. Because they can be hard to find in stores, I order them in large quantities online so that I always have them on hand. I keep a bowl of them at work on my desk and my colleagues appreciate them.
