Who doesn't love candy?!?

Every kid loves candy.  And come on, so do most adults.  Most Mommies worry about our precious kiddos and the amount of sugar that's entering their small, little bodies.  I know I do and I probably cave in a little more than I should when it comes to candy.  But who can resist those baby blues?!?  I also worry about my kiddos teeth, even if they're going to just fall out in a few short years.

My kids love it when packages show up at our doorstep with fun things to try.  We received a box full of Xlear Sparx candies. I was really excited to test out these candies.  They're made with xylitol, a naturally occurring, plant based sweetner.  While I'm not 100% living the clean/organic life, if given the choice, I'd choose a natural product over a processed product. Xylitol has also proven to improve dental health and strengthen tooth enamel.  Score one for Momma!  A candy that helps my kids teeth, not hurts it! Xylitol also doesn't interfere with insulin levels or production so those people with diabetes and other illnesses don't have to worry about the candies interfering with their blood sugar levels.  This is perfect for my grandmas!

We opened our box up and instantly dove in.  There was a tube of Fruit SparX, Citrus SparX, and two tubes of Spry Tooth Gel (we haven't tried the tooth gel).  I was a little disappointed with how small the candies are, only because of the choking factor for my little ones. But since they're so small, there's a ton of candies in each tube.  I was initially surprised by the cooling effect the candies had.  For some reason, my mouth just felt cool.  Noah even mentioned it (without me saying it first) so it must have a cooling sensation.  The fruit flavor was definitely our favorite (our tube is almost empty). Don't get me wrong, the citrus was good.  The fruit was just better.  The candies are very sweet so a little goes a long way.  I've been known to grab a few if I need a little mouth freshen up and my toothbrush isn't around.  I'm a fan and I totally recommend these to anyone, not just Moms concerned for their kiddos pearly whites!
