* These are terrible! They taste very synthetic. No fruit flavor whatsoever, kind of cardboard-y. Yuck.
* These things are amazing. Just like the original ones I remember from growing up. I have to make sure I limit myself to one a day though as my special treat. If you like the original fruit slices you will not be disappointed. If you are looking for a chewy candy like gummy bears these are not the same.
* I really like these and honestly, I think people who are still relatively new at low sugar should give this a try. Sugar alcohol can taste strange and also leave an equally strange aftertaste but I think these sweets were made really well.
* Disappointed overall with these. First and foremost, the maltitol caused major problems with my stomach. Second, while the pieces have a generally good flavor and remind me of the regular sugary version of these, several pieces in the bag (about 1/3 of the contents) were hard, either compromised by a bad cellophane wrapper or simply stale. Don't think I'll bother buying these again, and can't recommend them.
* The fruit slices taste GREAT! Just like I remember from years ago. Doesn't rate a 5 though, because of the packaging. About 1/4 to 1/3 of the package had the cellophane wrap compromised in some way or other (i.e., a hole) and the contents had the consistency of a hockey puck. If you attempt to eat one of these, keep your dentist on retainer.
* These do not taste like the jelly candies WITH sugar, not at all. I bought two packages because I was craving gummy bear type candy so I bought everything even close to this category to conduct my own taste-test. These are not the worst, but I would not buy them again. Too many carbs for candy that is not nearly good enough.
