Why Xylitol?

Why EVERYONE wants to eat ICE CHIPS Candy made with Birchwood Xylitol EVERY DAY!
  • Strengthens teeth
  • Reduces new tooth decay
  • Reduces cavity-causing bacteria
  • Inhibits growth of dental plaque
  • Stimulates saliva flow
  • Does NOT impact insulin levels
  • Contains zero net effective carbs
  • Delicious and satisfying
  • The FDA has approved xylitol as a Natural Sweetener
  • Xylitol is a natural sweetener found in the fibers of many fruits and vegetables
  • Xylitol is found in small amounts in the human body
  • One teaspoon of xylitol contains 40% less calories than sugar
  • Savoring ICE CHIPS Candy 3 to 5 times a day delivers maximum benefits
  • Use ICE CHIPS Candy immediately after meals or snacks
  • Recent studies have found a link between consuming Xylitol during pregnancy and stronger teeth in infants

We get several questions asked over and over again:

  1. What is Xylitol?
  2. What are the advantages?
  3. Why is it so expensive?
  4. Why do you use it?

The easy answers are:

  1. Xylitol is a polyol, a sugar alcohol. It is all natural, safe for diabetics and has many health benefits.
  2. It is all natural, safe for diabetics and has many health benefits.
  3. Mostly, it is made from birch bark or corn. Ice Chips Candy uses only the birch bark Xylitol in order to avoid any chance of using Genetically Modified Corn (GMO). Additionally, the process and availability render this product much more expensive than sugar.
  4. Ice Chips Candy uses Birchwood Xylitol (made in the USA), in order to access the health benefits, particularly the dental and diabetic advantages.

We researched and understood the benefits of Xylitol early on at our parent company Healing Leaf LLC. We even sold a compressed pill-like candy for a while but wanted something with a higher concentration of Xylitol and a lower price point. While we could easily acquire bulk Xylitol, we were told it was impossible to make a hard candy.

If you want to get an impossible task accomplished, you might try going to someone with little knowledge of the subject but a passion for getting things done. Because we were health product experts but not Xylitol experts we ignored all the warnings. Lo and behold, within two days of trying, we created a tasty hard Xylitol candy in three different yummy flavors. Within a week we had seven of our current 18 flavors and we were selling Ice Chips to our friends.

We never underestimate the public's willingness to do the right thing for their bodies. We understand it is possible to get a package of breath mints for a couple dollars. But those mints will not benefit teeth, fight germs and bacteria, prevent ear infections while being safe (and recommended) for diabetics.

So, in a nutshell, THAT is why we use Xylitol!

My family actually did view the Shark Tank episode and just had to try the product due to the exuberant personalities of the Two Grannies in a Garage. Okay, the price did throw us a bit, but really? Altoids and Ice Breakers are pretty close in price. Free shipping and knowing that this was an American company helped seal the deal and so we ordered the Shark Tank Special. And now? I just finished placing several Christmas orders for my in-laws, parents, friends - everyone I love. If I were Oprah, Ice Chips would definitely be one of my favorite things and I would give them out every year! Thank you, Bev and Charlotte! :)

Great product, this is my second order! My first variety pack order was order ID: 9664

I started telling everyone I work with at Mazda Corporate Headquarters (yes the Zoom Zoom company) in Irvine, CA. about the candy and letting them try it out (big mistake cause now I am ordering again - lol.

Anyway I have yet to find any of the candies in the variety pack to be unpleasant, they all taste great! Do you have any plans for Coconut, or any starbucks flavors like Carmel Machiato, if not now and you add these let me know immediately!

I found the ridiculously delicious iceChips at my favorite Hallmark store a couple weeks ago and now I'm obsessed with them! I bought 15 tins to take back to my nieces and nephews in Oklahoma on Thanksgiving. I always try to bring family something made in Washington when I visit and I can't wait to see how much they love the candy. I love the fact they're sugar free and that cool zing that accompanies every flavor.

smile I found All Flavors of Ice Chips and bought every flavor at the Windmill Nursery in sumner Wa. I LOVE the wonderful great tasting candies and best of all, I know and understand the benefits of Xylitol and am able to give these treats to my daughters without quilt. They love them Ice Chips as well. Thank you.
P.s. Can you work on a toffee flavor? would love to have a wonder English toffee of some kind. For now I buy every flavor I can get my hands on haven't found one I don't like they are all DELIOUS!!!

we found these at Bartells. We bought them because they were sugar free and "better" for you than regular mints - had not heard about Shark Tank until we bought them. Fell in love with them and have been trying to find other flavors. Finally decided to buy direct...had to buy all to test them. I have no doubt it will be worth it!

Found these at an ACE Hardware counter before going on vacation and then spent the rest of time everytime we stopped but no one had them. They are fantastic and especially wonderful for myself who needs to restrict sugar intake. The flavors are accurate and I am ordering directly instead of looking at all the stores and not finding what I want.
