For most, a sugar habit is hard to kick. Especially when things like sweet, glorious gummies exist. Unfortunately, most gummies, though absolutely delicious, aren’t exactly the best when it comes to healthy eating. But what if we told you there was a smarter way to snack on candies, and that each package of SmartSweets gummies contains only 3 grams of sugar (compared to the 24-25 grams in traditional gummy bears)? Not only that, but every serving also contains 28 grams of natural and GMO-free fibre from plant-based chicory root and tapioca.

Concerned about gelatin content? SmartSweets also has you covered. Their Sour Blast Buddies and Sweet Fish are completely plant based and certified vegan. Though the office was divided on the texture of the Blast Buddies, the Sweet Fish were a resounding favourite. A fair warning, the candy was not exactly the same consistency as Swedish Fish, but the flavour was delicious, addictive, and satisfied our need for something sweet.
