Katybar - In the spice section of your grocery, should be a salt substitute called "Nu-Salt" in a small blue container. It is Potassium Chloride used as a sub for sodium.

Maybe that could help?

I'll do that. Yes, there is a Cracker Barrel where I'll be shopping. If I can't find the candy bar in any of the stores I visit, I'll check there. Thanks. I'm looking forward to it.

I have used that or I think it was Lite Salt by Mortons. It's made w/potassium chloride and I used to think it tasted just like salt. But I guess my taste buds have changed, cause now it tastes all "chemically", lol. But since I take the rx my levels are good (Katy knocks on wood!!). But it might be good for ms m to try!!

BTW, how ya doin hun? I took a long lazy weekend, so I feel like I haven't "seen" ya in ages!!

Of course you are right, and I was only thinking of you ;-)

Ms M is also in my heart, but I can only juggle one sweetie at a time.
