The Gates of Horn and Ivory

Two Gates the silent House of Sleep adorn; Of polish'd Iv'ry this, that of transparent Horn:
True Visions thro' transparent Horn arise; Thro' polish'd Iv'ry pass deluding Lies.

    Are there candies that you enjoy but only buy during a certain holiday? I used to like candy corn at Halloween. Is there a candy for St. Patrick's Day? I know most Valentine's candies are heart shaped chocolates. After Valentine's candy leaves the stores it will be replaced with Easter candy.

    My husband and I buy the seasonal Reeses peanut butter cups because he says they taste better lol. Honestly I'll have to trust him on that one, but they're good for an occasional treat hehe. And before Christmas some stores here sell sugar free (and regular) applets and cotlets and those are probably my favorite, 1 because they make a sugar free (I'm diabetic have been since I was 7) but I prefer fruit sweet to things like chocolate (though I like making cluster of dark chocolate and dried cranberries! Yum!)

    I don't think I've ever had sugar free candy. Do they use artificial sweetners like diet sodas?

    I like chocolate on dried fruits too. I recently stopped eating sugar to control my blood sugar. All my sweets now are fruit too.

    Yeah they use artificial sweeteners. Avoid gummy candies, or eat very little in one sitting (like less than a serving.) I've also made cookies using splenda instead of sugar and super dark chocolate for the chips, and they turned out really well. Splenda makes a half and half artificial white/a little bit of brown, I got the recipe from the back of the bag. Splenda also has a recipe book. Anyways the name brand chocolates, like hershey's and Reeses both have really good sugar free versions of their candy. So does werthers if you like their original candy. Oh, jelly belly makes sugar free jelly beans that are good too, my favorite flavors are the lemon and the orange hehe. And Murray's makes good sugar free cookies, my stepdad and I used to bond over their chocolate sandwich cookies hehe. I hope that helps some. It hard not knowing if it exists, or which ones are good. When I was a kid there was exactly one brand that tasted good, but there is a wide variety to pick from now, which makes it so much easier. :)

    Watch out for sugar free candies and confections because so many contain sorbitol or mannitol which can mess with your GI system.

    *waves hello* hey! sorry, I will write a thread...having issues.

    I used to like the Christmas candy which was like ribbons, also any kind of Easter candy but especially those cadwell eggs.
