"The best effing gummy bears on the plant.""
"Just one bite of SmartSweets will make you forget about all the other sugar-packed candy out there that’s packed with preservatives, chemicals, and unknown ingredients."
"The reality of sugar really is shocking and is affecting society in a dramatic way. Its never been more accessible and hidden in so many of our every day foods."
"From the kitchen with a gummy bear mould from Amazon, to 2,000 doors in just one year, to launching nation-wide in the USA, backed by 3.6Mil in funding, SmartSweets is trail-blazing on their mission to kick sugar, revolutionizing candy consumption!"
