Anything bad in eating hard boiled sweets?


I'm wondering whether the urge to eat a sweet at the end of a meal can be satisfied by a small hardboiled sweet. I don't believe the calorific value would be too much. Considering its only a single one that one eats and you can chew it for longer, it seems a good option.

Any opinions?

Not the OP, but I think she's talking about a butterscotch drop, or some other hard candy, individually wrapped.

I googled "hard boiled sweets" and actually found info on how they're made... it appears sugar water is boiled down, hence hard-boiled. But, depending on your diet, pure sugar could be a bad thing...It's hard to find info on "how bad" though.

It's a good option if you can stop at just one. It's not the 20 or so empty calories that will hurt your diet, but the 200 you eat on top of that because they taste too good to stop at just one.

My problem is that they make my teeth hurt (thinking specifically of Jolly Ranchers, but sour balls do that too). Cremesaver are unstoppable for me, but maybe those Werther's hard caramel things would do the trick...

omg if I start eating Werther's I can't stop. Can't keep them in the house.
How about butterscotch candies, or no-sugar lifesavers?
