Dessert Gum: Craving Buster or Dumb Idea?

Can I Interest Anyone In Dessert?

Have you seen the new Extra Dessert Delights sugar free gum options? I was a sucker and bought the Mint Chocolate Chip and Apple Pie.  Believe it or not, they taste good and might just put away a craving for dessert.  At least until the gum loses its flavor.

Dessert Delights Gum

Seriously, I use sugar free gum as a snack replacement quite a bit.  Especially when I’m at work trying to focus on a project and food is running through my brain.  Gnawing on a stick or cube of gum can diminish that feeling that you just need . . . . . . . something . . . . . . .even though you’re not sure exactly what it is you need. I haven’t used gum as a dessert replacement, but I’m willing to try anything once.

Seven Dessert Flavors

The Mint Chocolate Chip and Apple Pie are the tip of the iceberg as far as dessert flavors go. There’s Key Lime Pie, Strawberry Shortcake, Orange Creme Pop, Root Beer Float and Rainbow Sherbet.

The good news is one serving (as in piece) is only 5 calories; no fat, no sugar, sodium or alcohol.  And, they’re tasty.  What do you have to lose?

I’m thinking that if would chew more on this . . . .
