Midget Gems
« on: December 05, 2018, 09:32:18 pm »
@Max414 had a thing for midget gems when he was quitting. I had some sugar free, gelatine free, gluten free midget gems - only 217 calories in a whole 100g bag. They were quite nice. Suitable for vegans too.

They were half price in Holland and Barretts.

Diabetic Mr T also quite liked them.

Well worth a try. Definitely keep your mouth busy.

I've not had a Midget Gem since Hector was a pup. I must rectify the situation.  :)

For me, it was sugar-free gum. I became a world expert on it. I still find the odd packet in pockets of garments I've not worn for ages.

These sugar free ones are made with stevia, so there aren't as many calories. However, they do carry the usual sugar free product warning of don't go overboard or you'll be sitting in the porcelain throne. Although if you're constipated, go for it - natural laxative effect.

I liked the red ones best. I'm going to get some more for Christmastime.
