    Re: hard candy

    The only hard candy I find I can eat is Werther's Original hard candies. Most gum has artificial flavorings and artificial sweeter which are not good for IC bladders.

    This same question was asked a few years ago and a member responded that they get Glee Gum from Whole Foods Market.
    The Glee Gum website at states:

    Glee Gum is natural chewing gum made with sustainably harvested rainforest chicle. It comes in 9 great flavors: cinnamon, peppermint, tangerine, bubblegum, spearmint, triple berry, sugar-free lemon-lime, sugar-free refresh-mint, and sugar-free wild watermelon. Glee Gum is the #1 healthy alternative to synthetic chewing gum and bubble gum! No artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, or sweeteners (no aspartame).

      I looked at Werther's today and it has artificial flavoring in it.

          I like sucking on naturalcandystore candies - especially when I have a cold or sore throat.
