Sorbee Review

My sweet tooth has stayed with me all these years through thick and thin (quite literally speaking!) and I will never turn down a treat! It’s always hard to stop at just one. Once I get the taste in my mouth, my body demands more, more, more! I hadn’t heard of the US company, Sorbee before, but I had heard of their products, Crystal Light and Country Time Lemonade. They also have a chocolate bar called DreamCandy Bar, which isn’t in stores just yet. I checked their website and learned that they are a company dedicated to making the best tasting, interesting and highest quality of candy available and affordable prices. They have been in business for over 30 years- close to my whole lifetime!

I was sent a bunch of goodies to try out from Sorbees. The first one I tried was the Crystal Light Chewy Candy, sugar free chewy candy in strawberry, lemon, orange and raspberry flavours.  They contain 1/3 fewer calories than regular chewy candy and are sweetened with Splenda and are gluten free. I remember from my days on the Suzanne Somers diet that Splenda was allowed and I recall how badly I wanted sweets back then. This would have been perfect!  They are sweet and fruity tasting and just all round delightful (and very addicting).

I also tried Crystal Light Hard Candy, sugar free hard candy lemonade and pink lemonade flavours. They have 50% less calories than regular hard candy and are sweetened with Isomalt and Splenda. They have a wonderful taste and just like having a glass of lemonade, but in a candy! I like to suck on mine to savour the flavour. However, they do taste so good that I end up chomping them up right away. Its a bad habit of mine.

In addition, I tried Country Time Hard Candy in Lemonade flavour. I love lemonade especially in the summer and this candy tastes just like Country Time’s Lemonade! Its deliciously sour and tangy with an awesome lemony taste. Yum! These are great to have on hand when I get a dry mouth (a side effect of the medication I take).  They also come in other flavours like Peach Lemonade, Pink Lemonade and Raspberry Lemonade).

Last but not least is the DreamCandy Bar, a light and chewy caramel and crispy nougat surrounded by milk chocolate. Are you salivating  yet? This tastes even better than it sounds! So decandant and tastes like pure heaven. These will be available for purchase in September so make sure you try one when you see it in stores. They are only 90 calories with 3 g of fat!!

Pick up some Sorbee’s candies on your next trip to Walmart and see for yourself how great they are!
