I was in the grocery store the other day, and decided to get some cookies. Normally I don’t keep them in my house because if they’re there, I’ll eat them all in a single sitting. But lately, I’ve been having a craving for them, and instead of eating a few cookies, I’ll eat everything I can lay my hands on. So I got some cookies.
My conversion to diet soda continues to go well, so when I saw a sugar free version of Oreos, I thought I’d try them. What’s really interesting about these Oreos is that the replacement for sugar in them is maltitol, which means they are not a reduced calorie food. Two cookies equals 100 calories. These cookies may not be good for dieters, but they’d be great for diabetics. Zero grams of sugar!
They taste exactly like regular Oreos. Exactly.
One warning, though. Sugar alcohols like maltitol can only be taken in small quantities. The box actually says: “Excess consumption may have a laxative effect” I guess that will keep me from eating the whole box in one sitting. Ha!
