First off, let me tell you that gummy bears are my favorite candy. I love anything gummy really. So when I saw a table set up at the gym with these presented, I bee-lined to them before starting my workout. The table was set up with samples and information. Now I wish I took a picture because the table was set up really well.

I had a flyer but it was given to someone so I pulled information from their site that really caught my attention about this company.

The Gummies Co Brand was developed to help offer a healthy and convenient alternative to taking daily micro-nutrients. Our goal is to produce a complete line of nutritional products with all natural ingredients that are both effective and seriously delicious.

The Gummies Co. offers an incredibly unique category of all natural gummy vitamins, using only the highest standards in manufacturing and quality control. Made in a IQC, cGMP* & FDA regulated facility, our all natural gummies line is certified Non GMO, free of artificial colors & sweeteners, gluten free, gelatin free and citrus pectin based.

cGMP- Refers to the Current Good Manufacturing Practices: regulations enforced by the  US Food and Drug Administration-FDA. cGMP certification helps assure proper formulations, development, quality control and manufacturing control packaging and processing and its facilities.

Pectin is mainly extracted from citrus fruits, and is used in food as a gelling agent, particularly in jams and jellies and serves as a good source of dietary fiber. The Gummies Co uses plant-based, citrus pectin as an alternative to gelatin. Gelatin is currently the most widely used gelling agent in gummy candies and is made by prolonged boiling of skin, cartilage and bones from animal bi-products. Using citrus pectin ensures that our products are Halal, Kosher & Vegan approved.

Having this explained really got us interested. This product is complete VEGAN FRIENDLY. They use pectin instead of gelatin. The next day we bought the vitamins from the EXN store right next to the gym. They didn’t have her green coffee extract. We REALLY wanted that one to help with the weight loss. If they don’t have it in this week then we’ll buy it from somewhere else.

Flavor – 7

You can taste the iron, it has iron in it which most multivitamins don’t and I appreciate that, when you start but as the days go on, you get use to it. I like the taste.

Texture – 10

The pectin doesn’t give the gummies the same firmness as the gummies with gelatin. It’s easy to chew and melts in your mouth. I think this is good for people who don’t like gummies that get stuck in your teeth.

Price – 10

it’s around the same price as any other multivitamin, pill or gummy. $25

Packaging – 10

I love the colors of the bottles. They are bright and eye-catching. The bottles have a child proof cap so they can’t open it because they think it’s candy. Unlike other companies, who fills up half the bottle, they fill the ENTIRE bottle. So much so that, when open, you can see that the vitamins at the top are squished.

Distribution – 8

Unfortunately, these are only sold in EXN Supplement, Nutritional Power Center and other supplement stores that we don’t go to. Hopefully they will expand to GNC, Vitamin Shoppe and other stores in the future.

Overall, I give this product 9/10! We will be going back to get another bottle and to see if they have the green coffee extract. We will also try the other bottles they are selling. You can’t beat vegan friendly!  I’m so happy that this product was presented to us at the gym and we’ll use it for now on.

I was hoping to lose weight before Thanksgiving while fasting and exercising for 3 days but it doesn’t seem to be working. Well, I don’t fast the whole day, I eat something small for breakfast, nothing for lunch, drink plenty of water and eat dinner. I exercised Monday but not yesterday because Star was doing her sister’s hair. We went to get dinner on the way home and then came home after 9. I really hate eating dinner late. I don’t want the food to be sitting in my stomach but sometimes you can’t help it.

If we don’t go to the gym again today, I’m doing a video from Fitness Blender. I found them on YouTube a long time ago. They have fitness videos for free on the site. I recommend looking them up. They are second best to Dailyburn.

I might even do that on the weekend since the gym we go to is so far. Just try to keep my body moving because if I stop, so will it.

Have a Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving you guys!

Thanksgiving Approaching.

I need a game plan before Thanksgiving to make sure that I don’t overdo it. First it would be great to know what people are cooking. Every Thanksgiving, we go to Star’s mom’s house to visit and they are Jamaican so they have a mixture at Thanksgiving. I think I’ll go with the small plate tactic. Not only her family but a friend of ours wants to invite us as well. Maybe another small plate tactic. I don’t want to be stuffed. Oh! One thing I would love to get this Christmas or before Christmas, is a Polar Watch.

I know the iWatch is better but it’s really expensive for me at this time and I’ll get it later. Unless someone gifted to me and I’ll love them for life lol. I’ve seen my friends with these and I think it will be a great idea to get an accurate reading off of how many calories I’m burning that the machines at the gym. Just for when their judgement is off. I read a blog once, and I think I reblogged it here, that the machines are judging as close as possible to the calorie count.

It’s sad but I won’t be able to go to the gym Thursday and Friday. Thursday is Thanksgiving of course and Friday, the gym is too far and so we’ll might go to the park with our dog, Onyx. It’s also Black Friday, so there will be a lot of walking anyway. 😀 Star and I also decided to Fast on Saturdays and Sundays off of solid foods and  have protein shakes and juice.

Recently, I noticed that we would eat unhealthy because our jobs at the farmer’s market doesn’t have any healthy food vendors. Once we eat one thing unhealthy, unfortunately, we give up after that and start over again on Monday. I don’t want to keep starting over, I want to keep going. This way, we can buy the protein shakes on friday, Pure Protein, and drink them for the weekend.

Have a great day and Happy Thanksgiving if I don’t post tomorrow.
