Favourite sweet treats for diabetics?

Sugar-free sweets!

I only have a tiny taste, seems to work for me, but then I don’t really have a sweet tooth.

Very difficult question 🙁

Jungle Oats Light snack bar or Canderel sweets… Sweet enough and good.
Keith

Any sweet fruit that is in season! For now grapes and mangoes work for me.

Sharon

Yes I know, Sharon, hence I only eat them as a treat when I feel like something sweet!

Two blocks of Lindt 70% dark chocolate.
Shirley
