Recently, I went to the grocery store and picked up a box of Ghost Dots while standing in the check out line. I love Dots, they are one of my favorite fruit flavored candy. Made by Tootsie Pop candies, these are a candy that I know won’t every go away and that they will come up with something fun every holiday season. These Ghost Dots are no exception. They all come in a iridescent greenish color, but they comes in five flavors. The fun is the mystery of not knowing whether you will be getting a cherry, lime, strawberry, lemon or orange.
I was first attracted to the candies because of the cute ghost character on the box. The eerie purple package and the glowing green lettering and design was very eye catching. The fact that they were being marketed as Halloween was even more fun. The $1.19 price for a 7 oz box didn’t seem bad at all. I love that these are chewy bite sized candies as many fruit flavored candies are hard candies.
The nutrition facts on the box state that there are 5 servings in each box.. In each serving, there are 130 calories, 0 grams of fat, 15 milligrams of sodium, 33 grams of carbs, and 21 grams of sugar. Because all the candies in the box are the same color, there are less artificial coloring, making them a little better for you than other treats.
If you have kids, or you just love chewy fruit candies, these Ghost Dots are a fun treat that not only will be a mystery in every bite, but will surely please any candy lover. As was my concern, these treats do not glow in the dark so you do not have to worry about any radioactivity in the candy- they don’t really glow in the dark.
