It started as an April Fool’s joke, but now it’s a real thing: Green juice gummy bears actually exist. Luxury candy boutique Sugarfina teamed up with Pressed Juicery to create a healthy take on the popular candy after last year’s joke about the “Gummy Bear Cleanse” made some customers desperate for the “candy cleanse.” So they decided to really make them.
The Green Juice Bears have 20% of your vitamin A and C per serving, which is about 14 gummies. They also contain lemon, apple, ginger and “greens” and Sugarfina says they’re fat-free, GMO-free, and don’t have any artificial colors or flavors.
"We loved the idea of gummy bears inspired by the juice trend, but we had no idea it would be so in demand," Rosie O'Neill and Josh Resnick, cofounders of Sugarfina, explain. "We called up our L.A. neighbor Pressed Juicery and had a ton of fun collaborating with them on the recipe."
You can snag a half bottle for $6.50, a large one for $14, and if you’re not ready to go all-in yet, they offer a tiny size “shot” bottle for just $3. Or you could just go drink a green juice or even eat a piece of actual fruit. But that’s not nearly as fun as green juice gummies!
