Now I'll confess that I've never been a huge peeps fan, and I understand that most people either love them or hate them. I suspect that true Peeps lovers are incensed about these sugar-free versions (they also have sugar-free Easter peeps), and perhaps they have good reason to be. But hey, it's about time that those of us with diabetes can at least join in the conversation.
These orange-colored marshmallow pumpkins come in a package of three, and a serving size is 3 pumpkins. They're sweetened with Splenda, malitol, isomalt, and sorbitol and one serving is 60 calories, has 0 grams of fat, and 23 grams of carbohydrate. Note, however, that all of the carbohydrate comes from sugar alcohols, so you would not absorb that much carbohydrate. If you've ever eaten many products sweetened with sugar alcohols, you know that they can cause mild stomach problems.
I think these are a fun addition to the Halloween candy lineup, but I actually would prefer a bite of chocolate or some peanuts. I'd love to hear if anyone else has some low-sugar Halloween recipe ideas.
