Bought these Chapman's No Sugar Added Ice Cream Sandwiches for my carbup meals. They contain 13g sorbitol, 7g of maltitol and 5g of sugar. They amazingly taste really good.

Are these substitutes healthy ?

Haha oh yeah it is, read the fine print on the package dawg. Sugar alchohols are a laxative. But I'm guessing by now you've felt the effects.

I have been chewing the hell out of some gum (Carefree Coolers) that contain these sugar alcohols. Havent had any problems yet.

What exactly is a sugar alcohol anyway?

Carefree gum would probably only have like 2g of sugar alcohols and the ice cream mentioned above would have much more. Check out this link, it gives a brief explanation of sugar alcohols and the different types.

If you want a kickass brand of icecream to eat all of the time that's lowfat and only 20g of carbs, try the SkinnyCow ice cream sandwiches and sundae cups. Have like 1.5 g of fat and they rock, trust me. :D

Oh yeah! Those are very, very yummy. And I can get them in New York too, so they must be widely distributed :p

ben and jerry's has great lowfat ice creams with like 1.5 g fat, 20 g carb, 5 g protein. not a bad deal at all for ice cream. also remember ice cream's healthy cousin frozen yogurt.

I live in california, and the skinny cow products are available here as well. I can vouch for the fact that they are damn good.
