Sacrificing your sweet tooth completely while you're trying to lose weight could lead to a quick burnout. Gummy bears offer a way to satisfy those cravings without derailing your diet, provided you watch the portion size.

Flavors

Gummy bears come in many different colors, each with its own flavor. Fruit flavors are common, although at least one company produces chocolate-covered cinnamon gummy bears.

Calories

A fat-free food, gummy bears contain no fat calories, making them a light snack for those on a strict diet. A serving size of 10 gummy bears contains 87 calories. The snack has no nutritional value, as there are no vitamins or minerals in it.

Considerations

Although a handful of gummy bears can quench a craving for sweets without adding dietary fat, they do have a high sugar content. With 13g of sugar per serving, the calories from sugar can add up quickly.
