Can I eat a roll up?

This is the best website for people with an Ostomy. So much understanding.

This is a bit tongue in cheek, but can I eat a roll up fruit snack with an Ileostomy? Will it get stuck? 🤷‍♀️


Not really sure, but they’re good. 😋 chew it up well and drink fluids with it.

Pectin fruit treats help with diarrhea. They're actually a part of my care kit.


Hi Emmie chew them real well, i eat the gummies called swedish fish, they are strawberry flavor and as addicting as potato chips, cant eat just one.


I too have an ileostomy and was told not to eat dehydrated foods.  I am not sure if roll up’s are dehydrated but like others have said..eat small pieces and drink a lot.  Let us know how it goes..good luck!  Enjoy 😉 


Alex T nailed it....I tried string licorice and it didn't get stuck but I felt it even though I thought I chewed it up....if you try just do little bites 


Right after I had my ileostomy I had a lot of sugar cravings and gummy sour candy was my jam. All was fine just stay well hydrated like everyone says otherwise it's gonna be really gummy/sticky result. Makes me want some sour trolli's now!


No problem with roll ups, gummies or licorice. Just like sugar it just dissolves naturally in your system. Mike
