Last night after dinner, I realized I ran out of my multivitamins for this morning, so I stopped by CVS to get another bottle. I don’t really have a certain brand that I always go for, but I usually prefer chewable ones with “tasty and fruity” flavors over just regular ones in pill-form.
As I was searching for other brands hoping to find some new chewable ones, these “Gummy Multivitamins for adults” caught my eye. There were several different brands, but they all had the same idea. They all came in delicious-looking fruit flavors (like lemon, berry, orange, and so on) and they looked just like gummy bears, except the shapes were different and they were much healthier.
I picked out “Multi Vites” from Vitafusion, which came in lemon, orange, and berry flavors. As soon as I got home, I opened the bottle and took 2 gummy vitamins. Oh wow. They were just too good to be called multi vitamins! Moreover, they were only 15 calories per serving with just 4 grams of sugar. I was actually really tempted to take 2 more of them, but had to stop myself from overdosing.
As I was enjoying my new multi vitamins, I started to wonder if these were as effective and healthy as other regular vitamins (like the ones that REALLY look like vitamins), or if these are more geared towards taste…
Have you ever tried “gummy multi vitamins for adults” before? Do you think they are as effective as regular ones, or do you prefer to stick to the regular ones?
