Gummy bears aren’t very new, and they’ve become a favorite for many. Have you ever had the mid-bite thought of “what am I eating?” - if so, you’ve come to the right place! While traditional gummy bears differ heavily from our gummy bears, we will compare what differs between the California Gummy Bear and the traditional gummy bears you likely grew up with.
Corn Syrup vs Tapioca Syrup
High-fructose corn syrup is something that is found across a variety of candies and other food. The problem is that high fructose corn syrup has been linked to several health problems such as increasing risk of obesity, inflammation, and even diabetes. We’re thinking it too - that doesn’t sound good! That’s why with California Gummy Bears we decided to use Tapioca syrup after rigorous research and testing. Tapioca syrup is a natural sweetener - just how we like it!
GMO vs Non-GMO
GMO’s have been used a lot to help preserve goods, and grow thing more efficiently. While a lot of research exists on both sides as to whether or not it’s okay to have long term, we decided that it’s best to not have to have that worry in the first place. That is why all of our gummy bears are non-gmo! If you’d like to read more about the benefits of choosing to go non-gmo click here.
Artificial vs Natural flavoring & coloring
Short and simply put, a lot of gummy bear companies will use artificial flavoring and coloring as it’s cost effective for them. However, we believe that all natural ingredients and colors are the way to go! All of our gummies are made with natural fruit grown locally here in California! For coloring, we use natural fruit and vegetable extracts (for example, spirulina extract in our blueberry gummy’s) to increase how vibrant they are. Never worry about what you’re eating with CA Gummy Bears! For more information on the ingredients we use click here.
Shape & Design
Ah, yes - we’ve finally arrived to the iconic gummy bear shape! Sorry, but that’s no more so move out of the way - California Gummy Bears are here! That’s right, we’ve reshaped the gummy bear as you know it in order to bring a fresh new design to the candy you know and love. Inspired by the bear on the flag of the state of California, it’s just out way of sending some extra ‘California love’ from us to you!
