I'm a strict vegetarian so I don't eat gelatin and one of the things I definitely miss are gummy candies. These have a slightly softer texture than something like a traditional gummy bear would, but they're still really good. The fruit flavor tastes really fresh and natural, not artificial like some fruit snacks. The packs are small and there are only 5 per box so I feel like it's a little pricey but most vegetarian specialty items are. They'd be good for putting in school lunches for kids.
