Valentine Sweets for the Diabetic Love of Your Life

What comes to mind when you think about Valentines Day? Sweets.

Unfortunately sweets and diabetes is a dangerous combination. So does this mean that a diabetic needs to miss out on that heart shaped box of chocolates? No way.

Sugar free candy has come a long way. I can remember my grandmother, who was also a diabetic, having these horrible tasting sugar free chocolates. For a kid to turn down candy you know it has to be some nasty crap. Now there are thousands of sites on the internet dedicated to supplying diabetics with delicious, sugar free candies and chocolates.

One of the better sites is www.diabeticcandy.com They have a great assortment of Valentine themed items including the traditional heart shaped box of chocolates that every girl needs to receive at least once in her lifetime. This site has really creative valentine gift baskets made for diabetics which include everything from jellybeans to saltwater taffy.

So does sugar free candy taste just as good as candy with sugar? In my opinion… no. But the fact that a diabetic is not harming themselves by eating it and they get to indulge in sweets on Valentines Day makes the sugar free candy a much better choice.

What better way to show your Diabetic loved one how much you care for and support them having a healthy lifestyle than by taking the time to get them a healthy alternative this Valentines Day.

I know I’ll be munching away on the stuff. Yum yum in the tum tum. Happy Valentines Day
