Johnette, why aren't you eating?

And yes, hard candy is a poor choice in lieu of food.

I fight badgers with spoons.

I have a jar of sugar-free hard candies.  I've got sugar-free Life-Savers, sugar free Werther's, and some sugar-free cinnamon disks.  I found all of them at Walgreens.  I only eat them when I need something to "wet my whistle" or to moisten my mouth, usually at work.  Just be careful though because some people can't handle the sugar alcohols after RNY.
