They're taking a cue from the adult multivites. While the weight loss pill stuff isn't great, the adult gummy actually is. Some people have a hard time with pills or just prefer the reward of candy for remembering to take their vitamins. (They're really low cal, so it's not crashing your diet). My sister can't take pills. She never has been able to. After knee surgery, she had to crush her pain pills and mix them with applesauce (which was the nastiest stuff ever, but but she literally can't swallow a pill bigger than a piece of rice). She has tried for years. Sometimes she still trys, gives up after like 5 minutes, and has to crush it. Gummies are a great option for some people. I take gummy multis and chocolate calcium supliments. They help me to not snub my vitamins, which I've struggled with since I was old enough that my mom stopped supervizing me.

Also, kids young enough to mistake the gummies for candy can't open the childsafe caps, although parents should still be responsible to keep any type of meds or supliments far out of their reach.


This ^ (I have a daughter who refuses to swallow pills.) Different options for different reasons, isn't that what it's all about!

Except for that raspberry on the label. Hopefully they have other flavor options, raspberries are SO 2012.


They need grape dimatap (spelling) flavor...then everyone would buy them


I AGREE. Fake grape is my favorite. I just found wal-mart great value brand Mio in that fake grape deliciousness. WINNING!

personally I think that gummy anything other than a candy is a bad idea. I don't think we should have medicine in a candy form. too easy for kids to not understand that they are NOT candy!


Then with that rationale we shouldn't flavor medicine either... because my 2 year old sure does love bubble gum flavored amoxicillin... she will come a runnin' with her mouth gaping open like a baby bird... she thinks her flintstone vitamins are candies too... and she hasn't even had the gummies yet.


btw, I LOVE my multi-vitamin gummies... they taste awesome and I'm not trying to gag down a horse pill with a gallon of water that will eventually get stuck in my esophagus thanks to all the glue they put on it.

As far as Hydroxy cut... whatever.. I don't buy that crap anyway... haven't since I was in college and was stupid.

There's a growing percentage of the population out there that doesn't have (or want) kids....personally I just don't think that everyone should be expected to conform to a child-proof world because people want to protect their kids from everything that goes by.

I understand the potential for confusion with pills that look like candy, but that's what makes America great...you can choose to buy (or not buy) whatever you want drinker

wow they really don't have caffine in them any more.

now its really just magic herbs.

I didn't think they had much more caffine in them then a few cups of coffee, if that was really causing liver issues them i'm in trouble lol

Wish people would learn to lose weight the normal way: by changing diet and exercise. Weird weight loss products should only be used, if it all, by people looking to shed the last 10 lbs.

If I were to take anymore weight loss supplements. That's probably the only way I'd take them. I hate pills, therefore gummies work just fine for me.

why is it my first thought was to make a shot out of it and drink up? drinker

I wish my normal vitamin came in gummies. I have to take it like a dog - throw in back of throat, cover mouth with hand until I swallow.

And I know how dirty that sounds.

I wish people would only use diet pills for the penultimate 10lbs . . . or maybe the third-to-last 10lbs.

In related news, I love how people define right and wrong based on how they cheat in their own lives.

Yum, I think I will try them! I take 4-5 different supplements a day at different times, (none are meds) and not having to take another pill is heaven. No I will not OD on these gummies, I used to take gummy vitamins and never took more than the recommended amount, remembering to even take supplements are challenging enough! My kids are all in college too so no safety caps or precautions needed. There is definitely a market for this form of Hydroxycut. I never used them before, I prefer to go all natural but now in my older age I need the boost and will try these new gummies.

The sad part is they wouldn't make if there wasn't a market for it. I don't get the whole 'adult gummy' vitamin craze. I think by the time we are over the age of 10-12, we should be able to take a vitamin with a glass of water if we want them.


You can - plenty of adult vitamins in regular pill form. But, for people who have problems swallowing pills, gummy vitamins are great. One of my friends can't swallow pills. If she tries to swallow something without chewing, her gag reflex tosses it right back up. Gummies are great for her since the chewables taste disgusting and get packed into your molars like sweet-tarts.

I thought it was kind of silly, until I discovered that I can't tolerate the smell of B vitamins. I can manage to force myself to swallow vitamins for a couple of days, and then the smell starts to trigger MY gag reflex, and I just can't get them down. I've never had trouble with any other pills, not even the giant, stinky, horse-pill antibiotics I used to have to take for weeks every time I went to the dentist. So, it's gummies for me, too.

Honestly, vitamins being in gummy format is pretty much the only way I remember to take them.

I like to occasionally pop a Spirodex right before a long cardio workout. I think it raises my body temp or something but it seems to give me some energy to plow through that workout. *shrug* I understand it's an aid, not a solution. Diet and exercise is like 99% of my weight loss so far.
