Midget Gems - Sugar Free (Degusta) By @SpectreUK

Midget Gems - Sugar Free

These Midget Gems were produced by Free From Fellows and they sound a little too healthy to be sweets. They are gelatine and gluten free, with no artificial colours or flavours, or sugar! Yes, you read that right… No sugar. They are made with sweetener and syrup. I'd say they are free from fruit juice too, however the only juice concentrate mentioned in the ingredients is black carrot, which doesn't sound very appetising. Black Carrot sounds like a Death Metal Health Rock Band for people who like a bit of wicked and yet in a healthy feeling wellness kind of way.

These Midget Gems gummies are produced in both a red berry and a blackberry mould. There was a very juicy fruity berry smell on opening the packet. I thought I'd try a red berry gummy first. The red berry tasted a little too waxy to taste of anything in particular, which was pretty disappointing. I'm not keen on eating snacks for the sake of finishing the packet anymore, if they taste bad, I'm not wasting the calories on it. I realise that may sound wrong to some people, but I'm still trying to keep my weight down and rehabilitate my knee. So I figured I'd just stick with the black berry ones if they tasted okay. The black berry gummies taste like black carrot… okay, I'm kidding… but there was that heavy coating of carnauba wax again that just totally put me off that flavour too. Shame really, I do love gummy sweets and was hoping for a low calorie alternative. I'll just keep looking, I guess…
