    I don't think sugar free jelly babies exist. You can order sugar free jelly, which is what you did, but not sugar free jelly babies. If you could, you've struck gold, but i'm doubtful.

    Boots used to have a section of 'Diabetic foods' which included sugar-free sweets. (My younger brother was diabetic). Seemed like a good idea except for a) they were really expensive, b) they tasted like shît, and c) they gave you explosive diarrhoea.

    I can't echo this enough.
     
    I bought a selection of sugar free sweets a year or so ago to help with my dieting, just to have as a treat like. I had half a bag of the Strawberry sherbet ones and approx 2 hours later I had the worst case of the trots ever. I was up all night every half an hour. Imodium did nothing to help either.
    I think it's the sweetener that's used....sucralose?...basically 'splenda' iirc

    Fruit alcohols cause this really bad- I was chomping on those sugar-free menthol sweets dieting last year and deeply regretted it, as no doubt the cleaners at work did too.

    Unaffiliated.

    No mate its the sugar alcohols in them. Sorbito, Xylitol etc. I get the most obscene guts aches from these. So i avoid them like mad. Same stuff is in a lot of the protein bars which are touted as low carb.

    Ahh, ok mate. I just recall at the time I did a search of the ingredients and Sucralose was one. I then read that a side effect from sucralose is bad guts for some, so put it down to that.

    www.aquarterof.com had sugar free sweets, they taste good but be warned do have a lax effect if you have too many... I learnt the hard way!

    WTF's 2012 SUC
