One A Day Men's VitaCraves Gummies

It’s pretty hard, growing up and being obligated to cast away a lot of the things you enjoyed as a kid.

Not that I don’t cling to my inner child like a life preserver, but there are still a few facets of youth that are rather difficult to carry on into adulthood. Things like tall glasses of milk, bubblegum flavored toothpaste, SpongeBob Band-Aids, and Flintstones vitamins.

Graduating to the bitter pill from basically a chewable candy was one of the hardest transitions I had to make into manhood. But is it still necessary?

You may already know the score from the One A Day VitaCraves Gummies review in 2009. One A Day has been gradually expanding their line gummy vitamins for adults, recently coming out with two new blends tailored to specialize in men’s and woman’s health, much like their already existent Men’s and Women’s Formula pills.

I picked up a rather expensive bottle of 50 gummies and a box of Men’s Health Formula, and was saddened to see how many vitamins were omitted in the making of the gummy blend.

The gummies are, in fact, completely trumped nutritionally by their pill counterparts. Straying away from their definitive brand name, it is also still required to consume Two A Day instead of One, which halves that 50-count to a mere 25 doses.

They still come in three fantastic fruit flavors – apple, cherry, and blue raspberry, which were all true to their pleasing but generic artificial taste.

One A Day Men's VitaCraves Gummies Closeup

They’re similar to real gummies enough to tempt me into having more than the suggested amount, but with a very light bitterness that sort of reminds me of cough syrup. They’re also slightly chewy, a non-issue for people like myself that grew up on Haribo Gummi Bears.

After I polish off this bottle in under a month, I probably won’t be coming back to One A Day Men’s VitaCraves Gummies. They’re tasty, to be sure, but at almost $9 a bottle, I’d sooner stick with my Kirkland Signature Daily Multi.

    Will you two stop saying ‘gummi’ so much?!

  4. Ibagoalie says:

    Making vitamins as tasty as candy can be dangerous, especially for kids. You can get ill from taking too much of the fat soluble vitamins. Adults should be able to control themselves, but kids? Flint stones was chewable, but not tasty enough to eat the whole bottle.
    Anyway, it would be nice if people tried to get their vitamins through food, but wishful thinking on my part.

  5. 1calledwolf says:

    I love these vitamins. I’m just confused because the front of the bottle says 1 a day and the directions on the back say 2 a day. Shouldn’t it say 2 a day on the front as well? Anyway, they are still tasty and I take them everyday.

    I will not respond to any reply.
