Hershey's Sugar Free Candies have fewer calories compared to their "regular" counterparts. Hershey's Sugar Free Jolly Rancher Hard Candy contain sugar alcohols such as Isomalt to replace the sugar. These sugar alcohols are digested more slowly and generally cause a relatively small rise in blood sugar levels. For people with diabetes, this is preferable to the sharper increase in blood sugar associated with products containing sugar.
Except for the shape and the easy-off wrapper, these are the same as the original Jolly Ranchers. I keep a few in my coat pocket for my morning commute, which allows me to walk right past the donut shop near the subway stop for work. I keep a green apple or grape for the mid-afternoon when I used to hit the vending machine for some high-calorie, high-fructose-corn-syrup nightmare. Now I get through the day without the carbs and don't feel like I'm sacrificing at all.
Love the taste of theseóvery much like regular Jolly Ranchers. Unlike regular Jolly Ranchers, they donít break your teeth when you accidentally bite down. Thatís a plus for me, since I seem incapable of not biting down! Like many sugar-free candies, they do have sugar alcohols, so if youíre sensitive to them or arenít used to them, take caution. But if youíre OK with the sugar alcohols, these are great. One of my favorite candies.
Gave me digestion problems; ate maybe 5 or 6 pieces at once (also ate other sugar substitute foods around the same time, so just too much all at once). Will not buy these again though taste (especially green apple) is really good. To bad my digestion doesn't like them.
