REVIEW: One A Day VitaCraves Gummies

These new One A Day VitaCraves Gummies come in fruit shapes, but I prefer my gummy multivitamins to come in bear form, so that I can tear them apart limb by limb and say, “That’s what you get for stealing my pic-a-nic basket” or “That’s what you get for scaring me and making me cry with your audio-animatronic versions when I watched the Country Bear Jamboree at Disneyland in 1984.”

On a daily basis I eat gummy bear multivitamins to get the vitamins and minerals I can’t get from a bag of Lays Sour Cream and Onion potato chips, a glazed doughnut and a Diet Pepsi Super Big Gulp because, I’ll admit, I have a hard time swallowing pills, even with a Diet Pepsi Super Big Gulp to help wash it down. But the gummy multivitamins I consume are meant for children and come in six great flavors. The One A Day VitaCraves are meant for adults and it only has three flavors: orange, cherry and some kind of blueberry/raspberry hybrid.

You might wondering if there are any other differences between the children’s gummy multivitamins and the VitaCraves. The VitaCraves are definitely more potent than their gummy bear counterparts, providing almost always twice the amount of vitamins and minerals, but the gummy bear multivitamins taste like normal gummy bears, while the VitaCraves have a slight bitterness to them, like regular vitamins.

Also, while the gummy bear multivitamins are really soft like a Trolli Gummi Bear, the VitaCraves are quite tough like Haribo Gummi Bears or the skin of someone who stays out in the sun for too long on a regular basis. But if you’re someone who has a hard time swallowing pills it’s still a decent choice.

While two One A Day VitaCraves Gummies provide me with 100% or more of my daily recommended intake of many vitamins and minerals, I think I’ll stick with my children’s gummy bear multivitamins because they taste better, are soft to chew and I can decapitate them with my teeth to get even with Teddy Ruxpin for ruining my cassette tape copy of “Sports” by Huey Lewis and the News.

  1. please everyone do not take these. i had an allergic reaction. my tongue is swollen and numb. it took me several times before i realized it was these vitamins. do not risk it. and the taste is awful.

    1. Just because you had an allergic reaction does not mean everyone will. I take these and do fine. They may work for some, but not others.

    2. Did you ever find out what it was in the vitamins that caused your allergic reaction? My bf is having adverse effects from these- scratchy throat and his eyes hurt when he takes them. Wondering if it’s an allergy as well…

  2. I picked up a bottle of these from my local grocery store a couple or so months ago and love them. I have trouble getting all the vitamins and nutrients I should in a day because I get full before I can consume all the calories I need and I think these have helped quite a bit. I have difficulties taking pills and since I already have to take a few pills daily, I’m glad there is now the option of these gummy vitamins. Now I can not only eliminate taking more pills, but since I enjoy the flavor and texture of these I haven’t missed a day since I got them. The only thing I’d say to keep your eye open for is the price! I paid a few dollars more for these at the grocery store than I probably would have had I gotten them from Wal-Mart. Next time I know where to get them. Overall I definitely recommend trying these vitamins if you don’t like taking pills or if you are forgetful about taking your medication/vitamins. Because I like them it’s easier to remember to take them.
