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.
