I can even begin to say home many times I have been out at friend's homes or at work when someone shows up with a special treat to share with everyone. Birthday cake, pie, or even the dreaded donut box at work! Everyone dives in and you have to sit there wide eyed watching everyone enjoy themselves like adorable Oliver eyeing some extra gruel. Any the friends they love to push right, after all, eating has a huge social element to it. This is the reason I like to carry a little ammo like a stick of gum with me to take the burden of these moments away.
Recently, Wrigley's unveiled it's new Extra Dessert Delights line of sugar-free gum. At zero carbs, it may not fill your belly, but it will help fight those moments of temptation pretty well. And its actually pretty good. So far I have tried two of the three flavors. The Strawberry Shortcake taste kind of just like strawberry gum, but the Mint Chocolate Chip is actually pretty tasty. So give it a try, they can be a huge lifesaver in these difficult carb temptation times.
