Part of working in an office is hitting that hunger wall at 4pm. You’ve already eaten lunch, but it’s too close to dinner to eat another full meal. What you need is a snack that satisfies your urge to nosh on something without making you feel guilty or ruining your appetite for later.

Here at SheFinds, we’ve “tested” tons of snack to satisfy those end-of-day cravings. Rice chips, pretzels, pea crisps… the list goes on. The one afternoon snack every single person on the SheFinds team agrees on? SmartSweets. They’re pretty much the yummiest, healthiest gummy bears out there.

Reason #1 this snack is a crowd-pleaser? They’re available in both sweet and sour varieties. I’m team sweet all the way, but I have coworkers who love all things sour and the green pack of SmartSweets doesn’t disappoint.

Reason #2 we devour these gummy bears? Because they’re not, like, normal gummy bears. They’re healthier… really! Not only are SmartSweets high in fiber and free of artificial ingredients and GMOs, but each pack only has 3 grams of sugar. And yes, they’re still just as delicious as regular gummies. Case in point: I gave my very picky 9-year-old a pack and she loved them.

Reason #3 we’re big fans of SmartSweets? Tara, the founder, is a woman in her twenties who was on a mission to “kick sugar.” She started recipe testing in her kitchen with molds from Amazon and that’s how SmartSweets was born. In addition to being stocked in the SheFinds office on the reg, Tara’s genius products are also now in Whole Foods! The next time you’re in the checkout line, be sure to grab a pack… or two. You’ll be hooked like us in no time.
