Addicted to SWEETIES!!!

    My major downfall, I think, is sweets. I am addicted to fruity/chewy sweets like Haribo and Fruit Pastilles.

    It's ALWAYS been a problem with me, and it's basically just pure sugar with very little in it to benefit me. I realised about a year ago that my addiction to these sweets is probably actually an addiction, similar to cigarettes/alcohol, etc. When researching it online it turned out that sugar addiction was harder to kick than cocaine addiction. :(

    I used to be able to work my way through a huge share bag of Skittles, Fruit Pastilles or Haribos in an evening with no problem at all.

    Now I'm finding that about 5 little Haribo sweets is 2.5 Syns and it's a big adjustment to make. :( I had 4 funsize bags yesterday for 10 Syns and then I can't have much else, Syn-wise! And I got next to nothing out of it as there were so few sweets, and I'm used to being a greedy pig and eating a huge bag of them. So I barely noticed them.

    I'm finding that fruit doesn't satisfy my "sweets" craving - though grapes are okay. Does anyone have any suggestions for alternative sweets? It's mainly the texture (chewy) and flavour (fruity) that I crave. Gum doesn't do anything for me, unfortunately. :(

    Any ideas?

    I'm also a sugar fiend (and cheese, and alcohol, and.. :grumble:), I love Jelly Tots, 3 syns for a 19g bag and super sweet.

    On a similar note, Hartley's no added sugar jelly pots are only half a syn each and might help out, and you can pop them in the freezer to make them all chewy and delish.
