Pros:satisfies a sweet tooth for people on a low or no-sugar diet

Cons:can cause gas, can have a laxative effect if too many are eaten, high calories

The Bottom Line: Another great sugar-free candy from Russell Stover


Way back in 1923, Russell and Clara Stover started a candy company in their Denver, Colorado home.  Today that little candy company has blossomed into the largest retailer of fine boxed chocolates in the United States.  And here I thought See's Candies was the champ.  According to the Stover website, Russell Stover "now sells in over 45 company-owned retail shops throughout the United States and Canada, and at over 70,000 drug stores, card and gift shops, grocery stores, department stores and retail stores throughout all 50 states and over 20 countries around the world."  I never knew this but Russell Stover's, Whitman's, Pangburn's and Weight Watcher's Chocolates are all the same company now. Talk about expansion.

When it comes to sugar-free chocolate snacks, the major players are Hershey's, Murray and Russell Stover.  Murray really only makes cookies not candy.  Russell Stover's list of sugar-free snacks is quite a bit longer than Hershey's and the taste of the chocolate is quite comparable.  If I had to pick one of them to ever so slightly beat the other in overall taste satisfaction, I'd have to be honest and go with the Hershey's products.  But I'm here to tell you that Russell Stover's chocolate is a really close second.  I have never compared the regular (with sugar) version of any Russell Stover chocolate, because I only recently found out about them.  It's nice to know that more and more companies are making snack time fun again for those on low or no-sugar diets and Diabetics.

If any of you have eaten a chocolate turtle, these Pecan Delights come really close in both taste and texture.  Each individually wrapped pecan delight is about two bites worth of deliciousness.  They claim that the Pecan Delights are "bite size" but I know differently - and I have a big mouth.

I find the caramel is just the right consistency - not too gooey and not too thin.  The pecans are fairly soft and the surrounding chocolate just makes for a great combination.  I have tried putting these Pecan Delights in the refrigerator, but I find them too hard to enjoy.

Stover makes some of the best sugar-free snacks I have had, including these pecan delights, almond delights, caramel drops, chocolate-covered peanuts, toffee squares, mint patties, raspberry miniatures and much more. A visit to the Russell Stover website will show you all the wondrous candies and snacks they make - both sugar and sugar-free. Their sugar-free list has recently grown to include Christmas Balls, Butter Creme Caramels, Strawberry Creme and Double Chocolate Truffle miniatures.  There is one Russell Stover sugar-free snack that is just awful - the peanut butter cups.  For some reason they are, far and away, just plain putrid.  Thank goodness Hershey's/Reese makes a delicious sugar-free peanut butter cup.
