Sweet Performance

Nutritious candy? It sounds like an oxymoron, but these supercandies are the real deal. Snap Infusion candies contain natural ingredients such as tapioca syrup, evaporated cane juice and palm kernel oil. They’re loaded with electrolytes (potassium, calcium and phosphorus) to keep you hydrated, B vitamins to boost your energy, and vitamins C and E to bolster your immune system. What you won’t find are trans fats, hydrogenated oils or high-fructose corn syrup. Athletic industry veterans Eric and Andrea Stoll are the husband-and-wife team behind Snap Infusion. Their goal was to create candies that are healthier than most calorie-laden treats. (Rumor has it they make a sweet hangover cure, too.) Just pick your pleasure: citrus Gum, chewy Mel caramels or flavorful fruit Tarts. You can indulge your sweet tooth without feeling like you’ve betrayed your healthy, active lifestyle. Sweet!

    Happy Friday! What a perfect day to indulge in some SUPERCANDY! Thanks to Daily Grommet for sharing the dream of never having to choose between candy and healthy!

    My husband and I founded SNAP Infusion so you can enjoy candy made from stuff that you can feel good about devouring (and happily share with the ones you love). SNAP- the perfect anytime snack for surfing the web - like now ;) - or fulfilling your more active ambitions. It's made of healthy, natural ingredients and fortified with B vitamins, antioxidants and electrolytes.

    It's a mouthful, literally. So, ask us some questions and join the wonderful world of SUPERCANDY!

    Granted they don't contain high fructose corn syrup, but they do contain cane juice. You do realize that is sugar, don't you. So, they are really not that healthy. Get your vitamins and calcium from real food

    @Rita: Yes, you're right. We are SUPERCANDY and we do have cane juice, which is a natural sugar. Sugars are carbs, which are necessary as part of a healthy, active lifestyle. In addition, the B vitamins help naturally turn carbs into energy.

    @David Wells: Actually, about half the palm kernel oil traded in the world comes from Malaysia. That's the independent nation on the other side of the Strait of Malacca from Sumatra. Sumatra is part of Indonesia. If you're going to criticize, at least state facts. Whether we like to admit it or not, virtually everything we humans do has a negative impact on our environment. We can only try to do as little damage as possible while we're here. There are a lot of forests in America which are clear-cut for production of consumer goods. Does that bother you? The inventors of Snap have good intentions, and I hope they're not discouraged by all the negative comments posted here.

    I had the pleasure to be one of the testers for the Snap candies. The Caramel Chocolate Chews were my favorite. They are perfect for the occasional craving for something sweet after a meal. The Fruitful tarts were also really delish. I was surprised by how many pieces you get in a serving for both of these candies – perfect for munching on at the movies. The Citrus Gum was different from the gum I normally chew, so it took some getting use to–the flavor changes and adapts within the first few seconds of chewing. Roald Dahl's Willie Wonka would be proud! This great invention is long overdue.

    Regarding the oil - could coconut oil be used? Much information now supports the formerly maligned oil as now proven to be healthy. Also, regarding the sugar content, I often hear that stevia is difficult to use to get the right flavoring, but it is a better alternative than sugar for multiple reasons. Also, lo han could be used as a sweetener. Will these products be sold in health food stores at some point?

While it isn't calorie or carb free , it doew enter the bloodstream much slower than regular sugar and tastes just like any other sugar. It also prevents tooth decay. I find Stevia has an unpleasant aftertaste. Keep up the good work.

    I do have a silly question, what is "sugar Alcohol?" I'm not good at reading labels so I wasn't sure I read if it contained Sugar alcohol...but if so, or if anyone could help me with this info, what if any, are the impacts of Sugar alcohol. The reason I ask is I'd love to purchase these for my sons--but wonder if the school will not permit it--due to the ingrediants..or if kids eat a certain amt, could there be any symptoms/affects? Sorry, I've never heard of it before. I prefer to ask the creators, and not google.. hence my question.

    Thanks again.

    @EB: Sugar alcohols are a type of carbohydrate that sweeten foods with half the calories of sugar and proven dental benefits (i.e. xylitol is in lots of gums and toothpastes). The term “sugar alcohol” is misleading as they are neither sugars nor alcohols - the name comes from their unique chemical structure, which resembles both sugar and alcohol.
