One thought on “SPOTTED ON SHELVES – 5/6/2016

  1. Hi, thanks for the great site! I just wanted to comment, especially because I love the name of your site..The Impulsive Buy. The “Finding Dory” gelatins were definitely an impulsive buy for me. I am not a big fan of gelatin, but these seemed perfect for our three grandchildren who all love the movie. I just saw it on Netflix recently and fell in love with it myself. The big reason I wanted to comment here was to let anyone else reading this know that the gelatins are sugar free and the main ingredient is Maltodextrin. I’m not sure why these aren’t regular sugar based gelatin, but when none of the three grandchildren ate it, I tasted it and was so upset to find what a horrible chemical taste it has. I only made the Ocean berry blue flavor and it was really inedible…the chemical and berry flavor together was disgusting. So I won’t be making the other and have written to the company due to the fact that there is absolutely no labeling on these boxes that they are sugar free. I wouldn’t have bought them if they were labeled as such on the front….we don’t believe in giving our children artificial sweeteners and I am ticked to have been misled with the movie tie in on these large size gelatins. Thanks for the opportunity to share some info with others who may feel the same way as we do.
