A neighbour in Nova Scotia asked me to pick up some no-sugar (diabetic 'safe') chocolates while I am down in the States. I did browse local stores and didn't come up with anything and now have left it too late to buy online I think (especially with the heat lately).
I will be passing by a TJs on my way back north in the next few days - do they still stock a decent no-sugar chocolate bar (preferably stevia sweetened)? (Perhaps I should ask this in the TJ's thread? Sorry if it is in the wrong place.)
If not, then does anyone else have any suggestions for a store along/not far off my route (most likely I-81 to Scranton PA then across to I-95 well east of Hartford CT).
Reading online I think I would prefer to buy her stevia sweetened than a malitol sweetened bar (since I forgot to ask her if she has a problem with sugar alcohols, this may be a safer choice). I would also bet, though I neglected to enquire, that she prefers a milk-chocolate (otherwise, wouldn't a regular bitter or semi-sweet chocolate be a choice some diabetics might make?)
Note: If I were diabetic, I think I would avoid all 'diabetic' products myself and just be more cautious about what I eat, etc. but this was a specific request and it is not my place to suggest that, particularly since I am not the one having to deal with the condition.
