I’ve always loved gummy candies. In trying to eat healthy, cutting out little treats like spice drops and sour fruit candies is the hardest thing for me. But the last time I considered buying a few sour chewy candies from the bulk section of the grocery store, I was beyond appalled by the ingredients. In addition to High Fructose Corn Syrup, and Palm Oil, they contained Talc! Gross!
The last time I was at Target, there was a sale on Sharkies and I decided to give the Citrus Sour Power flavor a try, even though they’re branded as a kids snack.
Sharkies are certified organic, and a source of electrolytes, making them idea for as a sport snack. I plan to tuck a few packs in my bike bag when I start taking long bike rides again this spring. But they’re also a great substitute for gummy candies, so I can indulge every once in awhile without ingesting lots of icky ingredients.
They are gelatin free, wheat free, fat free, vegetarian, non-GMO and don’t contain gluten.
