Gummy Treats for Everyone:

Love gummy bears but want to avoid glucose syrup or high fructose corn syrup? Though it would be best to make your own, if you’re feeling lazy (we all do, sometimes!) or untalented in the kitchen, these are for you. They taste, look, and smell just like the traditional gummy bears. However, the ingredients are much kinder. Tapioca syrup and cane sugar replace the corn syrup and glucose syrup. It’s an excellent treat to satisfy childhood cravings.


SurfSweets are the particular brand I buy. I’m sure there are others out there. Still, these are easy to find and they don’t break the bank. They sell a huge variety to meet your gummy needs. Traditional bears and worms, peach rings, and sour worms! 

Where can I get them?

You can find SurfSweets at Whole Foods Market. The bulk section sells them for less. I have also found them at Giant Eagle, for those who have them around your area.

Online shopping takes the prize as the cheapest place to buy, and has a larger variety.
