Hi all, Hope everyone had a great weekend! It was such a weird weekend here…sleet and snow on Saturday and sunshine and almost 60 degrees today! I saw people bundled up in winter coats, hats and gloves yesterday and then in shorts and t-shirts today…hey, that’s New England for ya & I wouldn’t have it any other way!
Anywho…this past week I had to say goodbye to some amazing co-workers at a hygiene job I had since May. The office that I am at for the majority of the week offered me an additional day, so I decided to stop at my other office in which I had been working one day a week. The hard part was that I enjoyed the job, the hours were a little tough and it was a further drive for me, but everyone had been so super nice and supportive!
Since this was a good ‘parting of ways’ I decided to get some little goodies for my last day! To Pinterest I went! I found a cute idea with lollipops and a sign that read “Goodbyes really suck…” PERFECT! Well, seeing as it is a dentist office I could NOT get sugar lollipops so I went to Amazon and searched for sugar-free! In the search I saw some that were teeth shaped…done!
Here they are with the sign that I made:
Since I had purchased these pops based on the simple reason that they were sugar free and tooth shaped (which was just too adorable), I hadn’t realized just how good they are for you too! Not only are they sugar free, but they are also kosher, gluten free, dairy free, nut free, non-GMO, soy free, have no trans fat, and have no artificial sweeteners, flavors or colors. My next thought… they’re going to suck! (pun intended). To my surprise they were really good!
And to make it even better they are made by a husband and wife who are a dentist and dental hygienist!
Not only do they make these tooth shaped lollipops, but they also make oval and tooth shaped lollipops in many flavors, hard candies in many flavors, gourmet chocolates, caramels and taffy, gums and mints! (YUM YUM YUM).
All of their products are sugar free! They use xylitol as the sweetener, which is a naturally occurring sugar alcohol. Xylitol is noncariogenic (does not cause cavities) and studies have shown that it can actually decrease bacterial levels in plaque and saliva as well as reduce cavities. As a dentist and dental hygienist this is an important factor!!
This was absolutely a great find that I stumbled upon and I will definitely be tasting some of their other products soon!
Check out Dr. John’s website to taste these delicious treats for yourself or find them on Amazon! Your taste buds and teeth will thank you!
Have a great week!
