Green juice has long been a staple of the wellness community, but not everyone can say they actually enjoy the drink. For those finicky palates, eating a green drink may be the solution and Sugarfina is here to help with their new "Green Juice" Gummy Bears. Yes, green juice gummies now exist.
It all started last year as an April Fool's joke, but the prank turned into an "out of the box" idea when gullible consumers started calling Sugarfina to inquire about the fictional candy. Seeing the response, the luxe candy store used Pressed Juicery's popular veggie- and fruit-packed green juice as inspiration to create a delicious (and maybe healthy-ish) treat.
The gummies are fat-free, non-GMO, gluten-free, contain no artificial colors or flavors, and each serving provides you with 20 percent of your daily Vitamins A and C. Made in Germany, the green juice-inspired treats are made of "a proprietary blend of natural spinach, apple, lemon, and ginger concentrate," according to Sugarfina.
How do they get their translucent green coloring if there are no artificial colors, you ask? From spirulina, a natural algae, and turmeric, a powerful herb.
"We loved the idea of gummy bears inspired by the juice trend, but we had no idea it would be so in demand," said Sugarfina co-founders Rosie O'Neill and Josh Resnick in a joint statement. "We called up our L.A. neighbor Pressed Juicery and had a ton of fun collaborating with them on the recipe."
The words "gummy bear" and "cleanse" might not intuitively go hand in hand, but this collaboration with Sugarfina and Pressed Juicery will definitely change that perspective. After all, who can resist a gummy bear cleanse?
You can get your hands on a bottle, fittingly packaged in a Pressed Juicery-style juice bottle, at select Sugarfina and Pressed Juicery stores across the nation and online. One large bottle costs $14, a half bottle costs $6.50, and a "shot" bottle costs $3. There's also a seven-day gummy "cleanse," but it is currently out of stock.
