Almost three months ago, I decided to cut down on my consumption of cigarettes. At the time, I was smoking 10 – 12 cigarettes a day. With the aid of bubble gum and Sweetarts tangy candy, I have been smoking between five and seven cigarettes per day for almost 12 weeks now. For many years, I have been regularly chewing bubble gum, but only began eating Sweetarts tangy candy shortly after deciding to cut down on smoking.
When I was a child, I used to eat Sweetarts frequently. While purchasing some bubble gum at Walgreens recently, I noticed a display of Sweetarts tangy candy and decided to purchase a roll. If I feel the urge to smoke a cigarette, I usually try to chew a piece of sugar free bubble gum. But now, I also often carry a roll of Sweetarts in my pocket, as another smoking – moderation tool.
Presented here, as a service to the consumer at large, is one food writer’s product review of Sweetarts tangy candy.
The standard – sized package of Sweetarts is a 1.8 ounce roll. According to the package label, the roll contains three 8 – piece servings of candy. Personally, I think that the serving size is over – estimated. Whenever I eat Sweetarts, two of the tangy candies are enough to satisfy my sweet cravings.
A 15 ounce Giant Chewy Sweetarts pack and a 6 ounce box of Sweetarts are also available at retailers across America.
The regular retail price charged for one 1.8 ounce roll of Sweetarts Tangy Candy at Hartford, Connecticut area pharmacies, convenience stores, supermarkets and other food retailers is approximately $0.89c. Considering how many pieces of candy are contained in the package, I think that this price is reasonable.
Sweetarts tangy candy feature a texture that is firm when they are first eaten. After they have been in one’s mouth for a few seconds however, they begin to get softer, then ultimately, they more or less dissolve, or melt in the mouth.
Sweetarts tangy candies contain 50 calories, per eight piece (15 grams) serving. These tasty candies also contain 0 grams total fat, 0 mg of sodium, 13 grams total carbohydrates, 13 grams of sugars and 0 grams of protein, per eight piece serving.
Taste / Flavor
Until I recently purchased a 1.8 ounce package of Sweetarts tangy candy at CVS Pharmacy, I hadn’t eaten the product in many years. When I was a child, I used to eat Sweetarts regularly, but now, as an adult, I try to moderate my consumption of sugar.
Since I have been utilizing Sweetarts and gum as part of an effort to smoke fewer cigarettes, I normally eat only one or two Sweetarts at a time. The combination of sweet and tangy flavors offered by these candies is just enough to quell my nicotine urges, without providing an over – powering amount of sweetness.
While Sweetarts do taste much like they did decades ago, I think that they are perhaps a little bit tangier than they used to be. These candies still maintain a flavor that reminds me of Pixy – Stix and other powdered, sweet candies, only in round, tablet – like form. I don’t remember exactly which flavors of Sweetarts were offered when I used to eat them as a youngster, but the flavors that are offered now are interesting and fairly satisfying.
The standard – sized package of Sweetarts tangy candies, is a 1.8 ounce roll. The roll features a combination foil and paper – like wrapper that is easy to open and it also re – closes effectively. The wrapper also lists all relevant ingredient and nutritional information.
All things considered, Sweetarts tangy candies are, as their name suggests, sweet and tart candies that possess a unique flavor that American consumers have been enjoying for decades. These candies still taste much the way they did decades ago and they are still fun to eat. These reasonably – priced candies are stocked and sold at retailers everywhere and are recommended by this food writer.
