We recently had the opportunity to sample Werther’s Original Sugar Free Hard Candies. Slightly smaller than the orginal Original, we were glad to see that size was the only thing sacrificed when producing this wonderful hard candy. They come individually wrapped and are just small enough that only adult consumption is recommended. The taste is wonderfully creamy and has a strong element of vanilla, which we loved. Like the originals, they give the sensation of smoothly covering your mouth with caramel flavor and make a great candy for after meals. We highly recommend adding this product to your inventory of sugar free snacks.
Serving size is five candies, but we doubt you will need that many to really enjoy these candies. Five candies provides one gram of fat, less than 5mg of cholesterol, 55mg of sodium, and about 7 grams of digestible carbohydrates. The carbs come in the form of isomalt, so the packaging contains the usual warning about laxative effect. Stick to the recommended serving size or less and you should be fine. The packaging also points out that the product contains milk and soybeans for those with allergies. The package also contains the cautionary statement about choking that many hard candies should.
