Fruit Vines Bites - Influenster Product Review

**all items received free from Influenster for review/testing purposes

Guess what?! Another review brought to you by Influenster! This time it is the unknown-to-me brand of Fruit Vines Bites.
I really hesitated on trying this bag of Fruit Vines Bites for 2 reasons.  One is that I'm not the biggest fan of cherry flavored anything.  The second is that I'm not a big fan of "chewy" textured candies.  So I'll keep this review short since I do have biases against the candy.  I'm also really trying to cut way back on the amount of sugar in my diet.

For being chewy, it wasn't overwhelmingly so sticky that I felt like my teeth were going to be stuck together.  I could tolerate the chewiness.  The size of each candy was the perfect size for me and my little mouth.  I even got carried away eating too many in one sitting.  As for the taste of cherry, it wasn't as artificial as I was fearing.  It actually tasted closer to a real cherry than I thought it would, especially as compared to "cherry-flavored" medicines (yuck!!!).

One bag claims to have 3.5 servings at 150 calories per serving, if you can control yourself.  I know that if I get munching on candy I can get carried away and eat way more than one serving.  Somehow this manages to have 1 gram of protein per serving as well, but no Vitamin A or C, calcium or iron.

So while I'll finish this bag, will I buy it - either in the cherry or the strawberry flavors (I read about the strawberry somewhere)?  I might try the strawberry flavor if I easily stumble across it, but I don't think I'll go out of my way hunting this brand of candies down.

What kind of candy do you like?  Have you heard of Fruit Vines?
