Buy Pur Gum online in Canada – Xylitol gum (Sugar free and aspartame free gum and mints) – Keto friendly

I absolutely adore Pur gum and mints. Anyone who knows me knows that I always have a large bag of Pur gum in my purse. (True story: my little nephew, who was three at the time, saw bags of Pur gum hanging in a store. He excitedly pointed to the bags of gum, and screeched at his Mom: “Auntie Tina!” So…I might even have a slight addiction to the stuff. I’m not ashamed, I’m not ashamed.) And, anyone who ever needs a piece of gum always knows who to come to! I not only stock up on the stuff, but I’m pretty happy to share it with anyone else.

I became such a fan of this stuff a few years ago, when I realized that by chewing gum with aspartame all the time, I was actually consuming an awful lot of aspartame! I had mostly taken aspartame out of my diet via other things – like pop or foods – but I still was consuming it by chewing gum. So, I love that this gum tastes delicious, doesn’t have sugar OR aspartame, and is in fact good for your teeth! Xylitol is a natural sweetener that inhibits the type of bacteria that causes cavities. So, chewing Xylitol gum can help to strengthen your teeth, and prevent cavities! (But – an important warning here to pet owners. Xylitol is POISONOUS to cats and dogs! If you have a pet in the house, please keep any xylitol products stored up high and well out of their reach. We want to keep our little buddies healthy and safe.)

If you’re looking to break your addiction to aspartame gum, then search no further! Pur gum actually tastes good, and I find that it stays nice and chewy for longer than some other types of xylitol gums. The flavours are awesome, too!

Here are my favourite Pur brand gum and mint varieties:

Pur sugar free mints – Multi flavour pack

Wow, this is an awesome deal on right now for the multi-pack, where you get to try all the flavours of Pur mints! I really like the peppermint flavour for a good, traditionally strong minty flavour – you know, what you really need after a strong cup of coffee. But, I equally adore the Mojito mint and Tangerine flavours. The Mojito mint mixes mint flavouring with natural lime essence – delish! Prices are current at time of writing, but can change at any time.

Pur Gum – Sugar free and aspartame free chewing gum (Xylitol sweetened)

And again, a favourite deal on a multi-pack, this time on Pur gum. I’ve personally tried all of these flavours and really enjoyed all of them. Spearmint is my go-to gum flavour, as it’s a bit milder and I just like that particular taste. But all of these are flavours of chewing gum that you’ll like – especially the cinnamon! I find that chewing on a piece of Pur cinnamon gum gets rid of my sweets cravings – sometimes! hahaha I can’t guarantee that you won’t still want a chocolate bar (looking in the mirror), but it is a good option to try.

And, all of these Pur gum and mints are Keto friendly. And there is no funky aftertaste like you get with a lot of sweeteners. Great flavour, no sugar or aspartame, stays soft and chewy longer. Check, check, and check. Stock up on some of this delightful stuff, and even your teeth will thank you.

Well.ca sales and specials this week: SunBum lip balm for $0.25 (No joke!) and Only $1.50 for kids’ sunscreen

While I was trying (without much success!) this week to find some foaming soap refills for our soap dispensers, I came upon some great options at Well.ca! This was my first every order with Well.ca and I have to say I’ve been really happy so far. The price on the foaming soap refills were better than anywhere else (Amazon was WAY more expensive, which surprised me!) and the processing was very fast. I’ll post a link to the soap, if they still have any available.

But, while I was there on their site anyway, my bargain hunting tendencies got the best of me and I started to look for the best sales and deals they have going on right now. Here are all the best deals this week:

Watkins Foaming Soap Refills Canada

  • Like I said, this stuff was hard to find! Both the Lemon and Green Tea variety were still available the last time I checked. Each packet of 828 ml size allows you to fill their foaming soap pump about three times. I stocked up, because over this crazy COVID and flu season, I wanted to make sure to not run out of soap! The large packages of refill soap are $6.99 each – the best price I could find, period. If you guys find a better price, please let me know – whether it’s online or offline!

Boiron Products – 25% off at Well.ca until October 25, 2020

  • Boiron products are a wide range of homeopathic and natural treatments and therapies for cold and flu season. All of these products are on for 25% off until October 25. They have family bundles of cold and flu natural medicines – this one is on sale for $39.13 right now and includes Oscillococcinum and Boiron Stodal for Adults syrup. (That is their type of homeopathic cough and cold syrup; excellent if you want to try something more naturally derived than the cough syrup you generally can get at the drug store.)

CLEARANCE ITEMS at Well.ca this Week

Now for the ultimate money savers! These items are up to 60% off in Well.ca’s clearance section. We’ll start with the cheapest items first, because you know we like cheap around here. 😉

  • Only $0.25 for SunBum lip balm – I picked up four of the coconut lip balms, because hey – 4 for a buck is an eyepopping kind of deal! Oops, the coconut is sold out but there is still a banana variety that gets a very good rating and a pomegranate flavour too. Has an SPF of 30, which is handy to keep your lips protected in the sometimes harsh sun of winter. (Which has well and truly arrived here in Calgary. Ugh.)
  • Only $1.50 for Badger Natural Kids sunscreen – regularly $29.00 – Wowser! i need to post these bargains quickly so you guys actually get a chance to snag these before they’re all gone. SPF 40 by the way – and I’m pretty sure the sunscreen police won’t charge you IF you as an adult wear this kids’ sunscreen. (Wish I had seen this one before I placed my order! hahaha)
  • Only $4.00 for Little Ones toy cleaner – all natural toy cleaner to scrub clean those toys that kids get yucky. Which, of course, is all the toys they touch! The brand on this is Attitude Nature Plus.

I hope you guys can snag whatever items it is you need this week from Well.ca. I seriously want to post this in the hopes that you can get some of these incredible deals before they’re gone. And as a helpful reminder: Shipping is FREE on Well.ca when you spend $35 or more.

Happy shopping, everyone! And hope there’s less snow where you are.

Bargain Books – BookOutlet.ca Book Finds this Week

Hello fellow book lovers! I’ve just had a very fun time perusing BookOutlet.ca for some of the best new bargain books available.

The first time it took around 3 weeks to arrive, but my latest order only took less than 2 weeks to get here. And considering that the shipping is free, I thought that was very reasonable.
