I was recently in a corner store - then a gas station, then a convenience store - while on my way to go visit a friend who is allergic to sweeteners.
I like to carry and share gum, mints, candy, cough drops but in 3 stores, I could NOT find any gum or mints of any kind that didn't contain aspartame.
Call me lazy if you want but I'm asking that if any hubbers are also allergic to aspartame but have found brand names of mints, candy and gum that are sweetened with plain old sugar WITHOUT aspartame in them - please post in this thread.
I was floored to find out that products had sugar AS WELL AS aspartame in them - seriously - every product in the 3 stores had aspartame in them. The clerks/tellers (all 3 of them) did not know why I would be reading labels like I was doing at the time and were not able to help me find anything without said artificial sweetener.
Right off the top of my head you might try Teaberry gum - I think it came out before aspartame, and is still made the way it used to be...but don't quote me. I'll look it up.
Blammo! Here you go: http://www.victoryseeds.com/candystore/ … berry.html
I love this gum personally - I haven't found another gum, ever, with its particular flavor.
Have you checked the ingredients list on Altoids?
No...are they bad? I guess so, or you wouldn't have mentioned it.
All the flavours and packages of Trident and Extra I looked at (rows and rows on the shelves) had aspartame in it over here.
Forgot to mention - I am in Canada...
I will write down the other products for next time I am at a store. Will probably buy jumbo and family packs of stuff once I find items that don't contain aspartame.
I gave up gum and mints years ago because of Aspartame. If any one finds something in Canada, please let me know, too.
What about Spry? I personally bought it online so not sure where/if it's available in stores but it contains the following ingredients:
Xylitol, gum base, lemon & orange oils (natural flavors), banana & pineapple (artificial flavors), vegetable glycerin (humectant), gum Arabic (texturizer), non-GMO soy lecithin (emulsifier) & beeswax (glazing agent).
I originally bought it because Xylitol is good for teeth and gums.

Does any body know how hubpages and/or adsense feels about brand names in articles? In ones that are light on the reviews, but long on the sales (ie. 10 things to buy her for Valentine's day), if you are linking on...
