Sugar Free Jolly Rancher Hard Candy is one of the best sugar free snacks we’ve reviewed here at glucoholic.com. Hershey’s sugar free version of the extremely popular Jolly Rancher brand is an excellent addition to their sugar free lineup, with a burst of fruit flavor that rivals it’s sweet cousin’s.
Our friends over at candyaddict.com have a rundown of the original Jolly Rancher flavors. We were pleased to see that the four flavors of the sugar free version were not a great departure from the five of the original Jolly Ranchers. The sugar free version loses a cherry flavor and replaces blue raspberry with plain raspberry. Each of the four tasted wonderful and sweet. Sugar Free Jolly Ranchers are definitely going on The Glucoholic’s preferred sugar free snacks list, and we highly recommend it.
Serving size is four pieces, which is convenient since that’s exactly how many tasty flavors there are to enjoy. Each serving contains 35 calories coming from 15 grams of sugar alcohol, which should mean about 8 grams of digestible carbohydrate. There’s a touch of acesulfame potassium, but with a serving only containing 16 grams of mass and the acesulfame potassium being the next to last ingredient in the list, there can’t be much. As with all products containing sugar alcohols we should watch excess consumption. The product also has a milk allergy warning for those who need to be concerned about that.
