#holidayGiftGuide -- SmartyPants Gummies flavor test and review!

Recently I received a sample from a  Facebook page from a brand I had never heard of. I requested them, because, well- it was free! 
That's the beautiful thing about samples. They cost companies money- but they do work!!  ...
Because once I got them, I was instantly addicted. They are chew-able Omega 3 "gummy vitamins" called SmartyPants Vitamins.
The company's founder wrote to everyone who received the samples (what a nice personal touch!) to ask how they liked them?
I responded with that I loved them VERY much! And I pitched an idea to feature them here!

Unlike most companies .. *ahem* he hasn't bothered me about the TWO HUGE bottles he sent since he sent then. He has just been waiting patiently for Casey Time.


He sent me a huge bottle of gummies for my kids, and a huge bottle of gummies for Noah  (*the Hubby) and I to share.

How sweet!~

Well I gotta say; I was miffed only by how many you are supposed to take. We didn't take the recommended dosage since we were all sharing them and they would've gone far too quickly. You (adult) are supposed to 6 at a time.  The childrens dose is 4. My husband & I looked at the amounts of vitamins in each, and they appear to be exactly the same. Meaning that my daughter could take the adults bottle, just less of them, with her recommended dose, and I could take hers as well, just take more of them ... These gummies are really sweet, and I have to admit I feared a little for my diet if I ate that many (6). But they taste so good it was hard not to eat the whole dosage!!!

What do they taste like?

There are several different colors but they all tasted the same to me. They remind me of those old sugared jelly "gumdrops" from back in the day, the old fashioned candy they used to make before candy bars really took over. You know, The kind you buy from a glass jar with a scoop in bulk?  Only difference is, those are kinda hard & gross and these are soft and juicy. So soft, I was surprised.
Everyone in the whole house loved them, my kids would beg me for vitamins daily. I am sad that we are all out!

I read recently that as for most vitamins, they cant prove taking them does anything. But vitamin D is extremely important in anyone's diet.   SmartyPants contains vitamin D. Vitamin D is one of the most important vitamins next to calcium, and I know pregnant, and nursing mothers are strongly encouraged to take (all 3) especially Omega 3, since some of it contains DHA, or DHEA. If it helps a developing baby, you know you could benefit from taking it as well.

The good news is: Smartypants vitamins are available at many popular retailers!!!

 Where to buy
Where can I buy SmartyPants? You can buy SmartyPants through their website and at other major online retailers like,,, and Abe’s Market. Also sold at retailers like Whole Foods!u.

I know most people wouldn't think that vitamins would make a good Christmas gift, or at least not a "usual" gift, but I know myself or my kids would be tickled to get these. They're organic, TASTY, and good for you. Much better than a toy that your kids have 5 million of. This is something they can actually use! 
I love that the vitamins are available for kids and adults. Your never too big for a gummy vitamin, so get your own bottle, and get out of the kids bottle!!!

In conclusion, I give these  gummies *****  <-- 5 stars!!  (Out of FIVE!)
definitely recommend the purchase of these gummies.
