CariFree Xyli-Tots Lollies - A New Way to Care for Your Teeth

About the Product
Trick-or-treaters rejoice: CariFree, the leader in caries prevention, is combating cavities this Halloween, with candy. The company's cavity-fighting lollipops, Xyli-Tots Lollies, are specially formulated to keep even the most ghoulish mouths healthy without sacrificing taste.

Practically indistinguishable from candy store lollipops, CariFree's Xyli-Tots Lollies are sugar-free and delicious.  The magic ingredient is a naturally occurring sugar substitute known as xylitol, which targets cavity-causing bacteria and decreases acidity within the mouth.  The resulting neutralization affords a significant decline in cariogenic bacteria and in turn reduces the risk for cavities.  Xyli-Tots Lollies come in five bewitching flavors: cherry chuckles, citrus smile, grape giggles, lime laughs, and raspberry riddles, making them the perfect alternative to sugary treats at Halloween. 

"Every Halloween there is always that one house on the block that hands out toothbrushes instead of candy.  Of course, despite the good intention, this house remains unpopular," says Carri Cady, Registered Dental Hygienist and Vice President of Sales and Marketing for CariFree. "Our Xyli-Tots Lollies look and taste exactly like candy, and they fight the cavity-causing caries infection. It's a win-win approach to oral health that both kids and parents can appreciate."

A shocking 50 percent of children in the United States will experience tooth decay by the age of eleven, according to the Center of Disease Control.  With so many children battling tooth decay, CariFree envisioned a solution to keep kids healthy.  By ensuring a healthy pH level is maintained within the mouth, CariFree's Xyli-Tots Lollies help keep cavities at bay, even if kids indulge in other sweets this Halloween.

Drilling and filling cavities is just a response to the damage caused by dental caries and provides no solution for the actual infection that causes cavities to occur in the first place.  CariFree's line of products addresses the problem at its source by effectively treating the caries infection and keeping children cavity-free for a lifetime. 

"CariFree is passionate about oral health, especially when it comes to children," adds Cady.  "It can seem like a never-ending struggle to convince kids to brush and floss, and even then, they are not fully protected against the dental disease.  The Xyli-Tots Lollies are simple, safe and effective.  On holidays like Halloween, Xyli-Tots Lollies are the perfect solution to keep everyone smiling."

Families and dentists can fill their jack-o'-lanterns with Xyli-Tots Lollies this Halloween by visiting the CariFree Web site at and receive a special discount of 10 percent on orders of 50 dollars or more. This Halloween, CariFree's Xyli-Tots Lollies are the anti-cavity treat that have cavities running scared.

My Take on the LolliesMy girls like a treat with the best of kids, and though we limit the sugar that they have, when they are good, they can have something small after dinner. As a parent, if there is a healthy snack or at least something sugar free, I would love to encourage my children to use this instead. 

In receiving a few of these lollies, my girls were quite excited about them (they wanted to try them right away as any kid would). Now granted, I did not tell the kids that these lollies were actually as good as they claimed. If these suckers do reduce the sugar intake of our children, the I am on for it! 

In trying it myself, the taste was good, and the flavor lasted. Even my kids said that they poved which was a great thing to hear!

Overall, I would definitely look out for these this holiday season, your kids teeth will thank you for it!
