It’s so hard to find sugar-free, healthy treats that also taste great. There was a time when I would try to make healthier desserts myself, but they almost always wound up tasting terrible and costing too much. So when I try a healthy treat that’s addictively delicious, it’s only fair that I share it with all of you. Ice Chips are a game changer. If the name sounds familiar, maybe you remember them from Shark Tank. The founders are two sweet grandmas.
So what exactly are Ice Chips, you ask? They’re candy that are not only sugar-free, but actually good for your teeth.
Ice Chips are made with Xylitol from Birchwood in the USA, NOT from GMO corn as is the case with most Xylitol products. Xylitol is a naturally occurring sweetener that’s found in the fibers of many fruits and vegetables. Here are just some of the benefits of Xylitol:
- Tastes great – there’s no aftertaste!
- Reduces new tooth decay
- Reduces cavity causing bacteria
- Inhibits growth of dental plaque
- Does not impact insulin levels
The Ice Chips Grannies sent me six of their most popular flavors – which they sell as the Shark Tank Special. As far as my favorite flavors, it’s a tie between Root Beer Float and Licorice. The Licorice flavor tastes exactly like black licorice, but in a much more convenient form. They’re great to stick in your purse in lieu of gum of mints. There’s a ton of other flavors available as well. I’m dying to try the Pina Colada, Sour Apple, or Coffee Cream.
