Color him stupid, but when The Glucoholic really likes a product as much as he did the Brach’s Sugar Free Star Brites he tends to look for other products sold by the same producer. He didn’t have to look far before he found Brach’s Sugar Free Gummi Fruits. There seems to be no end to the “gummification” trend these days. We’ve got gummi bears, gummi worms, gummi narwhals – uh, I think that last one is only in development. It stands to reason that we should also have something sugar free to chew on in the gummi family.
Brach’s Sugar Free Gummi Fruits do the job nicely. They come in apple, cherry, grape, lemon, and orange flavors. Most of the flavors are a reasonable reminder of their natural counterparts, and they’re formed in the shape of their real life partners as well. They are not individually wrapped, but most other gummi treats aren’t. The candies are very chewy and sweet. They are a great sugar free snack and an entertaining novelty to boot!
Our only complaint is that the candies are somewhat addictive, and since they consist of quite a bit of sugar alcohol they can “produce significant pressure” to limit intake. It suffices to say that you should heed this warning. Everything else about these sugar free snacks is a pleasure to enjoy.
A serving is 10 candies, which will provide 60 calories. You’ll also get about 11 grams of digestible carbohydrate and 2 grams of protein. Brach’s Sugar Free Gummi Fruits are sweetened with Splenda.
