My favorite is the chocolate mint! It's an altoid mint covered in a light coating of dark chocolate. Satisfies my sweet craving and leaves my breath fresh. Thank goodness for the little pleasures of diabetic life!

When I want a mint I use the Tic Tacs. Never had a problem with them. Probably because they are so small. LOL. Gum I buy the sugar free ones. Which ever one is on the sale that week. I buy the big packs of gum. I find if I suck on mints or chew gum it cuts down on my cravings to eat. So I always have them around the house. Almost in every room.

You will be happy to know that Altoids are available in "Sugar Free." I know they have them at Walgreens Drugstore and that they cost about $1.99 per container.

They come in both smalls and regular size mints.

Altoids also makes a sugar free chewing gum.

I think that they are not advertised as low calorie but just sugar free. That means be sure and check the carbs before you over indulge.
