Like "I assume you mean replace it with SF candy? SF candy is awful. Bleh, I grew up eating that, and I can't stand the thought of kids getting unnecessarily tortured with it today. The carb counts in that stuff is comparable to regular candy, plus there's the not-so-lovely laxative side-effects. Every 'betic is different, but I'd say most of the T1's I've talked to say that those sugar alcohols still raise BG so there's really no good reason to use them, and they really do taste terrible. T1 kids can have regular candy, they just have to consume it in small portions."
