The pros: Trader Joe's Scandinavian Tidings are very well done gummies that will make you wish they were available all year round. There is no gelatin in the ingredients, which for some people is a very good things.
The cons: This is a seasonal item. In my personal opinion, I do not believe that there are actually 14 servings. I think half that is even a stretch.
The verdict: I've heard good things about the Scandinavian Swimmers, but haven't had a chance to review them yet. I have however reviewed to Gummy Tummies, the seasonal Bunny Gummy Tummies, and thought those were both pretty outstanding. These probably will not disappoint either.
Now, I'm not normally a gummy type of person, but I could totally see myself sitting down and polishing off this bag (by the way the bag in a separate room while I write this). I brought these to work and it got high marks from another coworker. The only source of debate between the two of us was describing the flavor.
Each color does seem to have a different flavor but we were not sure if they were meant to be that way or if it was just the coloring that lent a flavor to each of these. The green tree had a green apple vibe to it, the red ornament seemed like a berry, the star had almost a not at all tart lemony type of flavor going on. It seemed like the same flavor that the Gummy Tummies have. Regardless, we both agreed the flavors were what we deemed "gummy" flavors where there isn't really a "wow" that tastes just like..type of experience. Don't get me wrong, these are "wow" gummies. They are very well done and addicting.
They are really good, they are a really good size. Speaking of size, I whole heartedly disagree with the serving size. It says there supposedly 14 servings. I think if you can get 5 out of this, consider yourself having good self control. All I know is, by the end of the day I was down to half a bag.
For $2.99 these are really awesome and well done gummies. They're worth a look, they are worth picking up, and would make a nice stocking stuffer for the person who has a sweet tooth in your life.
