Sugar-free Jelly Bellies!! they are awesome.
and I usually don't like the sugar subsitute products, absolutely nothing nutrasweet (which is toxic crap anyway, and likely only got approved b.c of Rumsfeld's connection), and only a couple of splenda things (beverages are gross, except instant Nestle hot cocoa, and the splenad packets taste fine in my own tea)

But these Jelly Bellies are awesome, I swear! and only 80 cals for 35 pieces, 60 cals less than sugarfull Jelly Bellies! whee, there is some small saving grace in this bizarre world after all!

2. What is the sweetner used in Jelly Bellies if not the ones you mentioned?
I need a little sugarless sweet treat every now and then.

5. yep, gotta watch out for that "laxative effect"
don't worry, it only takes a few to satisfy my sweet tooth! but I have friends who suck on sugar-free hard candies all day and eat practically nothing else, and get terrible cramps..course eating too much of regular sugarfied foods has adverse effects, too, even too much fruit, which I can have a tendency to overindulge in.

now they sell these preblended packages of Splenda/sugar blend for baking! maybe I'll actually make some holiday treats again this year, see if anyone can taste the difference..
