    Sugar free starlite mints from Food Lion


    Does anybody know if the sugar free red/white swirly peppermint candies from Food Lion (Delhaize, Sweetbay, Hannaford, and that group) contain xylitol? I caught my 4-month old puppy with one today. She ate about half of it. I don't THINK they contain it - I think it's Splenda (sucralose) but I can't find the ingredients list anywhere and I don't have the bag any more.

    I haven't seen any adverse effects other than she seems kind of worn out this evening, but it has gotten hot out (mid 80s) this week and I want to rule out the candy.

    Thanks

    I just searched it, and it looks like they use Nutra Sweet, which is aspartame. Xylitol is very dangerous to pets, good that you're concerned.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
