Gummies for grown-ups

    My complimentary "press sampler" from VitaFusion arrived yesterday. The new, albeit retro, concept? Gummy bear-style vitamins for adults.
    To be honest, I was never a gummy bear fan as a kid. (I was more of a SweeTarts kind of girl.) But, I wondered if chewable vitamins and supplements might be faster absorbed and, thus, easier on the old stomach than the horse pills I've been swallowing lately.
    Well, the experiment has begun and I can report that, indeed, there has been very little burpage or heartburn episodes with the gummies. The problem is, most of the products carry a whopping 5 carbs and 25 calories per serving, except for the sugar-free "Weight Management" Fiber Gummies.  That probably explains why the the gummies are so yummy, but I'm afraid that's a deal-breaker for me. I will continue to take the fiber, because they're ever so much better than Metamucil. And, besides, they are kinda fun to chew!

I saw your blog and was wondering if you'd be interested in receiving more information from P&G oral care brands, such as Crest and Oral-B on behalf of MSLGroup. If so, please contact me at
