Warning: Sugar-Free Candy... Laxative?
Tuesday, June 29, 2010
I got some sugar-free candy from Dollar Tree and ate it today. I have been running to the bathroom for hours now - and my stomach feels (and sounds) like there is an alien in there. After wondering what could have done this, I remembered that after I had eaten the candy and I had read the back of the package, it said "Warning: May have a laxative effect"
I don't know if this is true of ALL sugar-free candy, or just the Landmark Confections Peppermint Patties that I ate today - but I've never had something like this happen to me. I ate a serving size. It's not as if I ate the whole bag of them. But my stomach has been going crazy for hours now.
I had originally bought 2 bags of candy, but after this, the rest is going in the trash!
Has anyone else ever had this happen to them?
