BUT. I am really good when it comes to portion control. Honestly, I can’t believe I even have that in me, but I do, and I thank myself every day.
As I have mentioned before on this blog, diabetes runs in the family. My dad was only 35 years old when he was diagnosed with borderline diabetes. 35! That’s so young. That’s as young as I am right now!
I will never forget the day that he received the news. He was stunned, devastated, lost… His entire life changed that very moment, as well as his diet, of course. My dad’s sweet tooth is as big as mine, if not better.
The news also changed our lives. Cakes, cookies, pies, and all those goodies that Mom used to make kind of disappeared from our kitchen. Devastating, indeed.
However, it really wasn’t too long before my dad discovered all the sugar-free goodness that was out there, including Werther’s Original Sugar Free Candy. To this day, it is his favorite way to quickly satisfy that sweet tooth.
I keep a bag of these delicious caramel candies in my car at all times. My favorite is their Caramel Apple! SO good! It’s like a caramel apple without all the extra carbs. There’s also the Classic Caramel, Caramel Coffee, Caramel Cinnamon… it’s caramel heaven, I tell ya. Made with real butter and fresh cream, each candy is only 8 calories!
