Welch’s fruit snacks are certainly marketed as a healthier alternative to other gummi snacks like gummi bears or gummi worms. In reality they are actually no healthier than those other gummi candies. A fruit snack is a processed food and this fact is the first red flag. What’s worse is that their main ingredient is sugar. This comes primarily from concentrated white grape juice and apple juice.

Primarily fruit snacks are nothing more than sugars and dyes. If you’re craving a gummi candy but opting for fruit snacks instead because you think they are a healthier alternative you might as well go for whatever gummi’s you like the best instead.
