Just recently I was introduced to Sparx, by Xlear Inc. It’s candy that’s GOOD FOR YOU! Yes, you read that right. (I know, because I was shocked too!) SparX are naturally flavored little bits of candy. (Think Nerds, but bigger in size.) The candy “dots” as they call them are rich in Calcium and Xylitol. So these candies not only taste good, but are actually good for you!
Twenty five years of clinical testing has proven that Xylitol is the best sweetener for your teeth. Unlike sugar that causes decay, Xylitol can actually REDUCE the risk of tooth decay. According to the Xlear, products sweetened with Xylitol, are not welcome to bacteria. Studies have proven that bacteria won’t stick to a place rich in Xylitol, so if you eat items sweetened with it, your mouth will be an unwelcome haven to bacteria. As a matter of fact, Xylitol is recommended by dentist, periodontists, pediatricians, and health professionals, worldwide as a preferred sweetener for candies.
SparX candies are made with all natural ingredients. They are sugar free, Gluten free, non GMO, and Kosher certified. SparX are 100% sweetened with Xylitol. They come in three flavor varieties. Fruit, Citrus, and Berry.
Do they taste good? Well, I have the best little man for this job. Captain Picky Pants as we call him, was eager to try out these new candies. I mean come on, Halloween is right around the corner, so candy is on his mind a lot right now! He went right for the citrus flavored ones. He loved them! Said they tasted a bit like his beloved Nerds, but not as sour. He said, “I like them more Mama!”
As he went on to sample the fruit and berry, hubby and I tried the berry. We both enjoyed the taste as well. We also noticed there was no funny after taste like you used to get with the old “dentist approved lollipops.” So in our book they were a win win too! Matter of fact, we are planning on buying more to hand out to our Trick or Treaters this year. Local parents, you’re welcome! ;)
