Enjoy the fun of Twizzlers Strawberry twists that are sugar free with 20% fewer calories. However, they contain about the same level of fat as their “regular” counterparts. Hershey’s Sugar Free Twizzlers contain sugar alcohols such as maltitol syrup to replace the sugar.
These sugar alcohols are digested more slowly and generally cause a relatively small rise in blood sugar levels.
For people with diabetes, this is preferable to the sharper increase in blood sugar associated with products containing sugar.
