|"Yesterday, I purchased a small box (32g) of Mentos sugarfree candies sweetened with Splenda. I ate the box in about 30 minutes. They were very tasty and I was happy to find a sugarless candy that tasted good.
One hour later, I started to feel tired and abdominal cramps started to build up. About 30 minutes later, I was struggling to do anything and the worst pain was in my stomach and lower back. It felt like needles going through my body.
It's now 24 hours later, and I still have abdominal pain and bloating. I use a small package of Splenda in my coffee every day and I don't have any noticeable side effects from it. But that box of Mentos made me sick and I wonder how much Splenda is added to it.
I just wanted to share this story."
