    Not-so-bad Cheat Candy?


    I just noticed that a 150g bag of gummi bears (Haribo brand) contains 10.5g protein, 119g carbs (77g sugar), and no fat. That seems like a lot of protein for junk food. Am I missing something here?

    The diabetic aisles of Wal-Mart and the pharmacies of most drug stores and supermarkets have sugar-free hard candy that is pretty tasty.

    From what I've read, the best (meaning healthiest as far as candy is concerned) candybar you could eat is a Payday because it's mostly just peanuts. But yeah, gummi bears are made of gelatin which is just hydrolysed collagen.

    I was mostly joking. I just thought it was funny to see 10g of protein listed on a little bag of gummi bears.
