Where did I find these?
A few weeks ago I went on the hunt for sugar free/fat free candy. If I could tell you anything about me, it’s that I LOVE all kinds of candy. I like chocolate, fruity, sour, chewy, sticky, etc. Pretty much ALL of it. I was searching Google and Pinterest for a candy I could eat, and enjoy that wouldn’t taste like cardboard or some other weird natural flavor.
I was browsing Amazon a few days ago and came across Smart Sweets.
There were some things I did find frustrating about this brand and how I had to buy them. Overall though, I will tell you why I REALLY like them, and why it was a little frustrating! This will be a fairly short post!
The first option below is the one that I got! You got two bags of each one! There are a few other options available on how to buy them! Here is what I found that is a con of buying! (Don’t let it discourage you! I’ll explain why!)
The con to purchasing:
I only have two. You have to buy in bulk. You can’t buy one single bag. Really I wanted to try them because they looked to good to be true. You know with some fat free/ nearly sugar free or completely sugar free candy they can have this really weird taste to them or an after taste. Either why you are eating them or after you finish chewing and you swallow them. This is why I wanted to buy one bag.
But knowing me, I was desperate for something sweet that I could eat and fill that void of not being able to eat candy! So it wasn’t to bad of a con for me. I bought the one that has four flavors, and comes with two bags each. It’s above if you’d like to check it out, the first option! You can get them in smaller bulk order, but I thought what the hell, just do it. It’s Amazon, I can just leave a review and keep trying.
Secondly, they can be just a little pricey, but I guess that is the upside to buying candy that has absolutely nothing in it, and to buying in bulk. I don’t think they expect you to go through it very fast. Which they are kind of right. After I ate on one bag all day, I haven’t opened another yet because I am not ready. I bought these solely for when I wanted something sweet, not something I could binge eat over a few days!
The pros to purchasing:
- – They turned out absolutely delicious.
- – They did NOT leave a weird after taste.
- – There were a good quantity in the bag.
- – They had a very natural taste to them.
- – They had just the right amount of sour.
- – They are FAT- FREE!
- – They only have 3 grams of sugar PER, YES PER, bag.
- – No additional sugars.
These things in my opinion were a great buy. They tasted really good, and I can see how it would be easy to eat a bag in one sitting, especially with us being on quarantine right now! I will most likely continue to buy these because after eating them I realize that I do have healthy alternatives to the sugary, sour, candy that I would normally pick up off of a gas station shelf.
I got four different flavors; Sweet Fish (pictured to the left), gummy bears, sour gummy bears, and sour blast buddies. They do have peach rings also. So that will be my next buy. A bulk that carries the peach rings, because come one, have you lived correctly if you have never had a peach ring? One of my favorites.
Lastly, but not least, I’d buy these again because the hospital I am delivering at, has a clear food rule for mamas in labor. The gummy bears are considered clear. So I need to make sure I throw one of those into my hospital snack bag!
If you end up trying these, please let me know! I’d love some more feedback and opinions!
