Who are we? Well, I am Anne Shirley, and in 2009 I found out I was diabetic, which as you can imagine, was a big shock. An even bigger shock to the system was the fact that from now on I wouldn’t be able to indulge freely in my favourite sweet treats. No more biscuits, cakes or chocolate (chocolate?!!).
Well, as it happened, we were living in Spain at the time and fortunately I was able to purchase sugar-free biscuits, cakes, chocolate etc. quite freely in fact. Imagine to my horror when we came back to the UK, there were very few (if hardly any) options to buy sugar-free products in supermarkets, independent shops, online or anywhere for that matter.
I decided there and then that I had to do something about it, albeit on a small scale (at the moment!!!). So I came up with the idea of ’Sugarless Treats’, an online store for anyone trying to lower their sugar intake, for whatever reason that might be.
One of the products I found in Spain was ‘Gullon Biscuits’, very tasty, comforting biscuits that either had no sugar or no-added sugar. But they tasted just like biscuits with sugar. So I got straight onto them in Spain and immediately found them to be so helpful and genuinely interested in what I was trying to do.
Anyway, as you will see, we sell Gullon biscuits, the full sugar-free range, we also sell sweets, chocolate and snacks.
We do NOT however, encourage people to eat these products freely and in great quantity. They still contain carbs (although not from sugar), fat etc. If you look at the nutritional facts for each product, you will see that a lot of them are lower in cholesterol, trans fats and salt. Just look at them as a treat, have in moderation just like you would in any healthy diet. You look forward to them if you only have them occasionally and they taste better too!
Please take time to look at our products, we have tried to be as competitive as possible, although there is not a lot to compare with!
Best regards and thanks for reading.
