A few years ago when I quit smoking, I became addicted to mints. I would pop one when I was stressed, needing an oral fixation or hungry. All mints that I know have either sugar or fake sugar. Anyone have any ideas for a replacement, now it seems that my mouth just tastes blahhh.brianc by:
Have you tried adding a sprig of mint to your water? I don't know of any mints (or gum, which I'm missing a little), but I do like to add mint or lemon to tea or water to freshen my breath.
Xylitol is an artificial sweetener, technically, but it's a pretty inoffensive one. It has a relatively low glycemic index, and a TON of benefits (including better dental health, reduced inflammation, etc). The best Xylitol mints are just pressed Xylitol with some mint oil for flavoring - no other ingredients. That's the route I'd go with, especially since it's CRAZY good for your teeth.
