Fruit snacks are often marketed as a healthier alternative to sugary gummi candies. However, the truth is that they are no more nutritious than any other gummi snack. Fruit snacks are mostly made up of sugar. Primarily this sugar comes from concentrated white grape and apple juice. The rest of the ingredients are mainly dyes and other manufactured ingredients.

If you want a gummi snack you are just as well off eating sugary gummi bears or gummi worms in the end. Fruit snacks will not provide you with a healthy alternative to these snacks. If you want fruit and are trying to be healthy go for the real thing or research recipes for all natural healthier fruit snacks that you can make yourself.
