I saw someone post about an actual keto friendly taffy on a keto FB page. They said it was actually made with Xylitol and Erythritol. Wow....really? Finally! I went on Amazon and located them and I could have swore I did not see any Malitol! The front package states "Made with Xylitol Erythritol." Yippee! Paydirt!
I received my Zaffi Taffy in the mail yesterday. Flipped over to read the ingredients and the 1st ingredient was MALTITOL SYRUP! You might as well just eat plan white table sugar!
Oh my gosh~ considering how much I Love The Zollipops, THESE Taste Like Chemicals! I have no issues with the sweetener, and like I said, The Zollipops that I've had in the past are delish (although I just received a bag of those as well so I can see IF they've made any changes to the flavor because the bag DOES say "NEW Fruit Flavors! Lasts Longer!" SO...). These Taffys will go to the staff at my pain doctor's office~ I trust THESE don't cause them as much pain as They have ME. *Joking, but I do have a slightly yucky taste in my mouth and I do feel a little queasy, but That Could Be From Paying MY Bills Right Now.
This "sugar free" candy contains maltitol syrup, which does affect blood sugar levels. It has a GI value of 52 compared to 60 for table sugar. Maltitol syrup is also known to cause gastro issues - that's not something I want to subject my children to! It was my mistake to not read the label first. They are going in the trash.
Are reviews for the product or the offer? I honestly don’t know and am in a conundrum because I love this product but the offer is a joke as the value for the money is just not there.
I have purchased these at brick and mortar stores in larger bags on 2 for deals at the same price I paid for this tiny dollhouse sized bag. So if you just can’t live without Zaffy Taffy and you got money to burn, then go for it! But if you use these for dry mouth or just because you like em, or for actual kids dental care, then I humbly suggest you buy elsewhere or find a better offer/deal. Yes, I definitely could have read the description more thoroughly and examined the photo with a microscope, but in my defense, I needed these STAT, saw picture of what looked like the large hanger bags I usually get at store, and I hit buy it now. Live and learn. I got what was offered and what I ordered but it is not a good value for the money.
All that being said, Zaffy Taffy is awesome amazing terrific stuff! I use it for dry mouth actually and it works plus it’s just great candy. The actual candy is 5 stars + all day, every day and FYI doesn’t stick to teeth, mouth, or dental work. Tastes wonderful fruity and not too sweet as well as has no weird artificial or chemical taste.
These taste great and my kids’ approve. I like that they don’t upset their tummies or spike their blood sugar (one my my kids wears a continuous glucose monitor for an auto-immune disease so we see what foods affect her blood sugar within minutes of consumption).
I must admit, this taffy made me so happy that I really probably should have been embarrassed. I'm a middle-aged woman who had a real bad Laffy Taffy addiction several years ago. While I've successfully, albeit aggrievedly, tamed my taffey obsession, the loss left a hole in my heart almost as big as the cavity the taffy left in my tooth. I first heard of & fell head over heels in love with Xylitol about a year ago. For me, it's the ideal sugar substitute in coffee, baking, and just about dang near everything so when I saw this taffy, albeit not my beloved Laffy Taffy which will ALWAYS be my #1, but taffy nevertheless made with xylitol that also tasted really good, I was/still am elated!! I ♡ this tasty treat!!
I could die!!! These are so freaking delicious, I cannot even explain. Like I could literally cry tears of joy right now because I'm on the autoimmune protocol and I cannot have gluten, dairy, sugar or nuts. Which has robbed me of my food joy, and this little bag has restored my hope. I would not have ever known these were "healthy" if I didnt read it for myself. I've already shot out a text to all of my closest friends and will be buying enough to not need an add on order button. I literally hauled a$$ away from the kids when I tasted this for fear of them seeing my look of total pleasure and wanting to try them for themselves. I'm not normally this selfish, however I haven't had candy in a month, and they can wait till the new order comes in 😅 it is to be noted that after 5 min there is a slight stevia aftertaste, but that is just so that you know, and to me it in no way hinders the 5 star-edness of this Amazing product. God Bless you people for this product!
Since I loved the ZolliPops I thought i'd try their taffy. What a disappointment. The listing has several misleading descriptions: the package is a 3rd of the size than what's shown, the description advertises "Xylitol and Erythritol" but the main ingredient is Maltitol, the package on the listing shows "Xylitol and Erythritol" on the package....it wasn't on my package. The quality is another issue. The taffy is extremely soft and sticks to the rapper which is a mess to pull off...leaving 1/3 of the taffy stuck to the paper. And then there's the cost. You get 12 taffy candies for $11.89...about $1 per taffy. Very Expensive compared to their bag of 25 ZolliPops for $5.29. This is just not a good product from the Zolli brand.
