Guess what?! Another review brought to you by Influenster! This time it is the unknown-to-me brand of Fruit Vines Bites.
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?
