Have you tried Smart Sweets yet? They're the (sneakily healthy) Canadian candy we cannot stop eating. Seriously though, they're unbelievably addictive gummy bears, and we aren't exaggerating — it's impossible to put the bag down once you've opened it. And now they're even better — they're softer and chewier than ever!
These healthy gummies are made with natural ingredients, only have two grams of sugar per bag, and serve up an entire day's worth of fiber. They even have protein! Good-for-you snacks don't always have the great taste to match the fantastic health benefits, but Smart Sweets truly deliver with great flavors that taste like the regular convenience store candy we've grown up loving. However, the first batch of Smart Sweets we tried was much firmer — not quite the "gummy" texture we were used to with the classic Haribo bears.
That's changed completely now — the formula has apparently been updated, because these bears have softened significantly. Great news for gummy-lovers everywhere, terrible news for our self-control. Even our co-workers who weren't feeling the first batch's texture in February are now completely addicted to the newer, softer gummies. There may or may not be a locked drawer in our office.
Though not yet available in retail stores in the US, you can order them from Canada to the US for $17.75 for a half box (6 bags) and $35.50 for a full box (12 bags).
