TIL There’s A Healthy Alternative to Skittles

Not too long ago, Project 7 unveiled a line of gummies that were each inspired by a classic alcoholic cocktails. What set the snack brand apart was their dedication to keeping products all-natural. Well, those of you with a sweet tooth for candies such as Skittles now have a healthier option to choose from.

Project 7‘s new Gourmet Chewies are an all-natural answer to Skittles, for those looking to cut back on sugar and preservatives.

Like Skittles, they boast a crunchy exterior and a chewy interior. However, the candy chews are organic, non-GMO, gluten free, free of artificial colors, free of preservatives, and free of artificial flavors. Each 2-oz package contains about 34 grams of sugar, compared to Skittles’ 46 grams of sugar per 2.17 oz bag.

Flavors include Front Porch Lemonade, Fairytale Fruit, Coconut Lime, Birthday Cake, and Rainbow Ice.

As someone who subconsciously pampers his sweet tooth, especially on candies, these Gourmet Chewies are definitely something I’d want in front of me.

You can find Project 7 Gourmet Chewies at their online store, in 2-oz and 4-oz packages. Each bag contains about 60 candies.
