Great-Tasting Xylitol Candies from Ice Chips can be Enjoyed by Anyone
Fun and filled with attention-getting flavor, Ice Chips candies use xylitol instead of sugar for sweetness, and are 100% safe for diabetics. The company makes its candies not only to appeal to people with diabetes, but also anyone who wants savory, enjoyable candies that are sugar-free. One of the benefits they’re aiming for is a much lower calorie count, since xylitol is low-calorie. The other is that xylitol actually may help teeth stay in better condition by altering mouth pH to a level suited to remineralizing.
Ice Chips Candies come in Lots of Vegan Flavors
Ice Chips candies provide satisfying taste from natural flavors, and help to freshen up the breath. All of the recipes are made to be vegan, and are wheat-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, sugar-free, and corn-free. Every flavor except a handful are certified kosher by the Orthodox Union, too. Flavors range from berries and fruits to more unusual tastes such as coffee, eggnog, or wintergreen. There’s a taste for just about anyone who wants a sugar-free hard candy.
How Two Grannies made a Hit Healthy Candy Company
The Ice Chips company was founded by “two grannies in a garage,” and like many good ideas, took off like a rocket once it got better-known. Charlotte Clary, a mom of four, started a whole bunch of small businesses, including bagged salad from her home garden, and a toenail fungus remedy. Bev Vines-Haines, who has seven kids and 23 grandkids, was a ghostwriter for celebrities and a newspaper freelancer. However, once the two got together, they got the winning idea for diabetic-friendly xylitol candy – and Ice Chips was born.
