February 08, 2021Reviewer: Kathryn in Tennessee* Chick-o-stick candy was always one of my favorites growing up in the 70s. The taste and texture are somewhat like a Butterfinger without the chocolate. They are hard to find these days. So imagine my surprise to find these on netrition.com in a sugar-free bite-size version!
I want to love these, but this whole bag is stale. Chick-o-sticks, when fresh, are delightfully crunchy. These would be bad for your teeth if you were to chew them. If you are looking for hard candy and have no memory of chick-o-sticks in the past, you may love them. As for me, I will order again to see if I can get a fresher batch, and if not, I will probably pass.
November 14, 2020Reviewer: jayne in Utah* They are not bad for a sugar free candy , have a different interesting coating and a little high in carbs.
February 21, 2019Reviewer: Roni in Ohio* Really tasty but limit how much you eat because it can cause digestive problems.
2 of 2 people found the following review helpfulDecember 30, 2015Reviewer: Mara in Arizona* First, these candies are absolutely delicious. The issue is while advertised sweetened with Splenda, the first ingredient is Polyglycitol Syrup which is a sugar alcohol and can cause gastric issues. The other issue with that same sugar alcohol is it does affect the blood sugar of some type 1 diabetics, like myself. I tend to be sensitive to maltitol and other similar sugar alcohols so have to avoid those "sugar-free" products (which I do not consider to be sugar-free at all). There are a couple sugar-free alcohols I can tolerate such as Erythritol or Xylitol and do cook with both Splenda and Erythritol. These candies though, I treat these like they are straight sugar so will only eat 1 every once in a while. The affect is a tiny bit better than non sugar free but not so much.
