Atkins and their fairy tale candy


Not an April Fools joke

This is sad. The Atkins company is now just another candy company, trying to fool you into believing that their candy isn’t candy.

“Without the carbs or sugar”? That’s so far from the truth it’s just silly. These candies contain mostly maltitol, a sugar alcohol that partly turns into sugar in your body (and upsets your stomach). So yes, the Atkins candy is full of sugar.

Avoid this kind of junk like the plague if you’re interested in health or losing weight.

Eat real food instead.
