On another note - my coach today gave me a tin of Ice Chips to try. They are sweetened with xylitol and she said they are fine for about 4 times a day (apparently you have to watch out for xylitol since it gives some people the runs).

They taste good and should work for when my mouth is yucky and I'm meeting clients (although I try to brush my teeth first, not always possible).

I'll be interested to hear how they are and where you can purchase them. Currently I use Listerine Strips. I do miss gum and mints. But I was told for bad breath the only thing we could use is Binaca (which I bought the Listerine one because I couldn't find Binaca) or Listerine Strips.

They aren't bad at all Carol and I'm going to look at the grocery store to see if I can find them (since I'm sure they will be cheaper there!).

Ruth Ann,

They have a website that has a store locator. I found a couple of stores in my area that sell them. I want to give them a try.

Here is the link to the website: http://www.icechipscandy.com/

I just ordered Ice Chips from Netrition this week! Got some as a sample last year. I recalled that I liked them but forgot about them until I saw them on the Netrition website.

From their website, there was no indication of any nearby grocery stores that I could find. I just got brave and ordered a selection from their website - free shipping. Hope I like all the flavors.
