Has anyone tried the new Sugar Free Reeses Butter Cup? Is the sugar replaced by sugar alcohols? I just heard about them.

I received the sugar free reese cups today for Easter. The sugar is replaced by 20 g of sugar alcohol. I got the minature cups. Hope this answers your question. It says on the package it is only supposed to cause a small rise in the glucose readings.

'Tis better to work the real thing into your diet… When I was going with my Type 1 gentleman friend in the 80s, before glucometers were invented but diets concepts were being adjusted, we learned that 4 chocolate chip cookies covered 1 hour of tennis.

Thanks everyone for replying. As I was afraid, they seem to have subsituted sugar with sugar alcohol. Plus a lot of carbs. Guess I won't be trying them. Darn!!!

I haven't heard of them. I love Reese's though. Once I start eating them, I don't want to stop. LOL

I kind of make my own. I take a gram cracker and put peanut butter on it, then a 1/2 serving piece of my dark 85% cocoa (usually 4 squares). I pop it in the micro for just a few seconds to soften up my chocolate a bit and Voila! It tastes a lot like a Receses but with nothing artificial and fewer carbs than probably even your sugar free one...and less worry of reactions to the sugar alcohols. Those can be bad.

Have to try that. Great idea.

the dark cocoa is only 4 carbs. I am not sure about the grahm cracker, but it is mighty tasty. It is not as sweet, but I get enough sweet to make me happy with it. It is usually the chocolate I am craving anyway.

Graham crackers were used as a diabetic snack snack in several nursing home I worked. 1 2 1/2 inch square has 30 Kcalories and 5 grams carbs.

Gabby, I like this recipe, I will give it a try. I am not a chocolate eater but when I do eat it it is the dark chocolate. Thanks for sharing…Debe
