Anyone know of a good sugar free gum
 
I'm looking for a good sugar free gum that doesn't have aspartame and/or sucralose in it. I'd love one that's sweetened with only sugar alcohols (xylitol, manitol, sorbitol etc). I'm not a fan of the fakey sweeteners, but I'd rather chew on sugar free gum. I found one at Starbuck's but there's not a Starbuck's in my town.

I have a huge sweet tooth and have found that chewing a piece of gum in liu of eating several pieces of chocolate is far better for my waistline (who'da thunk it!?!).

Xylichew is a pretty decent gum sweetened with xylitol. It doesn't last a very long time, but the flavor and texture are pleasant. I've found it at Whole Foods. So far every other natural gum I've tried was pretty nasty.

OOOOOO thanks Dianyla! I'll have to keep that in mind for when I'm around a Whole Foods - I think there's one in Portland I'm sure. I don't care if it lasts long, I just want something to chew on for a bit to get rid of my sweets craving.

I bought some Orbit since it has sugar alcohols (can't remember which ones right now) in it and aspartame was way down the list of ingredients. I can still taste the aspartame <ick>.

hahaha I know what you mean about the cases - what's the deal with putting gum in cases lately? Sure they're cute, but what a waste! I bought some more at Starbucks and had my empty case in my purse. I asked the girl if they had a recycling program or something for them, she then seemed a bit appaled that they don't.
