My 7 year old daughter has Fructose Malabsorption Disorder and can't tolerate very much sucrose, or more than a negligible amount of fructose, sucralose, or sugar alcohols (sorbitol, mannitol, xylitol, or stevia.) The only sweeteners she can tolerate ad lib are aspartame and saccharin. I'm having a lot of trouble finding things that are sweetened ONLY with aspartame or saccharin -- anyone know of a comprehensive source for such items? [more inside]
I am not having luck buying good sugar free marmalade. I've looked in grocery stores, where I can sometimes find Smuckers, but it's not great. My online shopping skills seem to have deserted me for this task, and i don't know what specialty stores I should be looking at.... I live in the Boston area, so have access to a wide range of specialty type stores, and definitely willing to order online as well. Anyone have sources for sugar-free preserves or marmalades?
I'd like the recipes for your best wheat-free baked treats! Bonus points if they are cookies. Double bonus points if they are free of refined sugar (other natural sweeteners are fine). [more inside]
I *love* buying chocolates or candy for friends and family on special occasions. It's kind of my thing, and the fancier the better. The problem is I have a diabetic in the family, and I want to send them something to celebrate an anniversary. Is there such a thing as fancy sugar-free chocolate or candy? I need something nicer than a bag of sugar-free Lifesavers.
Be gone, processed sugars! But I need some help, please. [more inside]

Late last year on a visit to Montreal, I purchased some chocolate milk that did not have any added sugar or sweeteners. It was awesome. Since coming back to the US (bay area) I have not found a chocolate milk that is free of the added sweeteners. I have tried whole foods, Berkeley bowl, trader joes and safeway. Any idea what brand I got in Montreal and where I can find something similar here?

I have an addiction to sugar free, nearly-zero calorie Lakerol pastilles, ideally in cassis or lemon, and to Ricola's similar lemon-mint breath mints. Because they're primarily made of gum arabic, they're very chewable and give my mouth something to do... and yes, very tasty. The problem being that they're about $1.40 for a .8 oz. box, and I can go through 2-3 boxes a day, no problem. At $28 a pound, that's more expensive than some cigarrette habits! Any ideas on similarly chewable nearly no calorie candies, ideally in a larger container, in bulk, by the pound, etc?
