Sugar Free Snacks

Russell Stover Sugar Free Toffee SquaresRussell Stover really is providing variety in the world of sugar free snacks. We’ve reviewed several of their products, and have always enjoyed the taste. Russell Stover Sugar Free Toffee Squares are no different. These wonderful candies remind you of Butterfinger bars, and their chewy texture leave you satisfied. If taste alone were the criteria for our reviews this candy would be a winner hands down, but unfortunately we have to consider the nutritional value and that’s where Russell Stover Sugar Free Toffee Squares come up short.

Each serving contains 210 calories, 16 grams of fat (of which 9 grams are saturated fat), 25mg of cholesterol, 140mg of sodium, and about 12 grams of digestible carbohydrate. For those who are very sensitive to sugar alcohol, there are 23 grams in each serving. For all this you only get 2 grams of protein. Not a good trade in our opinion. As a result, we can only recommend these for your most decadent treats. Russell Stover Sugar Free Toffee Squares are probably the best example we’ve seen that being sugar free does not guarantee being healthy.

    This amount of sugar alcohol would make anybody spend the rest of the day sitting on the toilet. If it’s got sugar alcohol you shouldn’t eat it. I see from the picture that it has Splenda, which is bad for you.

    There isn’t a single shred of scientific research that shows that Splenda has any negative health effects. Same for sugar alcohol. The packages usually say something about laxative effect, so buyer beware.

    There’s some thinking now that consuming too much artificial sweeteners can make you crave food and defeat the purpose.

    I’ll take my chances – never really had problems. Love the sugar free chocolates…especially York mints (bigger fan of Whitman’s, even if they are owned by RS). Thanks for the review!

    If you took the time to read the package you would see that it was designed with diabetics in mind. As to Lynda I guess if you shove a whole bag down your throat you will end up on a toilet all day. Just because you can’t handle sugar alcohol doesn’t mean you should tell everbody else not to eat it. There’s nothing wrong with the product if you use it in moderation, just like anything else.
