Hi,

hello,

i found your query while looking for an ingredient list for myself. though i'm not celiac, i do avoid artificial sweeteners whenever possible, so i wanted this info, too. here's what i did and what i have found:

i googled

bob's "sweet stripes" brand

and found

Bob's Sweet Stripes Soft Mint Candy Product Information

which is

http://www.shopping.com/xPF-Farley_Bob_s_S...Soft_Mint_Candy

this website says:

so, i googled

on this page, i navigated to
