If you and your kids are lollipop fans but prefer to keep your sugar intake low, here's a great option. Dr. John's® Candies produces Inspired Sweetsthat are free of sugar, yet taste as good as their sugary counterparts. They offer a nice variety of lollipops, too:

  • Cherry, Chocolate
  • Ultimate Lollipop Collection (variety mix of Lollipop flavors)
  • Sunkissed Fruit (Raspberry, Grape, Tropical Fruit & Pomegranate)
  • Fresh Fruits (Watermelon, Peach, Green Apple, Pear & Strawberry )
  • Classic Fruits (Red Raspberry, Cherry, Orange, Lemon, Lime, Blue Raspberry & Grape)

  • New Sweet and Spicy
    But Dr. John and his wife Deb are not content to stop with these traditional flavors. As a dentist and former dental hygienist respectively, both know the struggles that many people have with dry mouth.* In an effort to expand their candy collection to better serve this population, they recently introduced these Sweet and Spicy flavors. Consider these unique lollipop additions:
    • Cherry Cayenne (natural cherry flavor and cayenne pepper oil)
    • Cocoa Caliente (natural chocolate flavor and cayenne pepper oil)
    • Ginger Spice (natural ginger flavor)
    • Mango Habanero Madness (natural mango flavor and habanero oil)
    Willing to be brave? Give these sweet and spicy lollipops a try. If you prefer your candy without the stick, you will find many of these flavors in hard candy discs as well.

    *Most of us take for granted the saliva in our mouths. Saliva plays a critical role in keeping our mouths clean and moist and helps to start digestion of the foods we eat. Unfortunately, some people's bodies fail to produce saliva, and they struggle with "dry mouth." Capsaicin, the fiery compound in hot pepper, stimulates saliva and appears on a number of home remedy lists for temporary comfort from dry mouth.
