Sugar-Free Mother’s Day Gifts 2007

Sugarless Gifts For Mom (Or Anyone Else)


Not every mom welcomes a box of great chocolate: many are getting into shape or diligently keeping themselves there; some simply don’t eat sweets. Every year we pick selections of our favorite sugar-free food gifts. This year, we’ve divided the list into this list of sugar-free gifts, below, and have a separate list of recommendations for calorie-free gourmet foods.

*Includes kosher-certified products

Candy & Chocolate


Chocolate Covered Company:
Sugar-Free Chocolate Strawberries

Large strawberries dipped in delicious sugar-free chocolate: dark, milk or white. A variety of designs is available (most choices on the website can be created in sugar-free).

  • 1 Dozen Berries, $49.99
  • 2 Dozen Berries, $89.99

Sugar Free Chocolate-Covered Strawberries



The Baklava Goddess:
Sugar-Free Baklava

The Baklava Goddess makes a sugar-free version baklava with xylitol, which is a natural corn derivative available at health food stores. It caramelizes like sugar, and tasters couldn’t tell the difference between the sugar-free and the regular baklava made by the company (which uses a sugar syrup rather than honey on the regular product).

Oil & Vinegar


Austria’s Finest:
Styrian Pumpkin Seed Oil:

Styrian pumpkin seed oil, pressed from lightly roasted pumpkin seeds, is prized far beyond the borders of Austria. With a delicate, nutty aroma, this delicious culinary oil is a real find for salads or as an anointing oil. Dark green in color, it is pretty when drizzled over potatoes or as a bread dipper.

  • 250 ml Bottle (5.2 Ounces)

Sugar-Free, Natural Soda


Diet Cola, Black Cherry

Our favorite diet soda is Boylan’s Diet Cane Cola, bar none. But we can’t even classify it as a “diet soda”: It’s a fine, gourmet beverage. Made with all natural flavors, people who are used to the artificial ingredients in supermarket cola are in for a shock. Many people may actually prefer the fake stuff. But folks, this is what real cola tastes like. You can even taste the cinnamon—try to find that in a can of Diet Coke! Sweetened with sucralose and ace-K.

Jeff’s Diet Egg Creams:
Almost An Ice Cream Soda


You’d never know it was a “diet” drink. This is one of our favorite diet products ever. In truth, it has 20 calories a bottle (10 calories a serving). Perhaps the greatest gift you can give Mom, because she’ll be a fan for life. With a dab of No Sugar Added ice cream, you’ve got an amazing ice cream soda.
