Best Sugar Free Gummies in 2021


A box filled with different types of food

These sweet little bears are super-laxatives in disguise. But the strange part is, people continue to buy these things fully understanding the potential for some unanticipated… toilet time. And many leave 5-star Amazon reviews despite this well-known side effect.

1. Jelly Belly

A close up of food

70 Calories | 0 g Fat | 1 g Net Carbs

Jelly Belly isn’t just into beans, they’re into bears too. Jelly Belly does a good job here in trying to control portion size for you, as each individual bag contains just 2 servings.  At 70 calories per serving, each individual bag provides 140 calories, 9 grams of soluble fiber from polydextrose, and zero grams of sugar. Maltitol is the main ingredient in these little treasures, same as you’ll see in 4 out of 5 brands in this list. If you prefer some built-in self-control in your indulgences, these are a great option.

2. Brach’s

Brach’s, “America’s candy maker since 1904” comes is next with a solid 4-star rating out of over 250 reviews. Each 3-ounce bag contains 3 servings for a total of 180 calories per bag and zero grams of sugar. That’s about 33 gummy bears for the whole bag. Again, if portion control is something you struggle with, these smaller bags are a good option. According to the product description, these little numbers are “perfect for a movie night treat or midday snack.” If gummy bears sound like your idea of a midday snack, go ahead and stock up for 2 weeks of snacking success and grab a pack of 12 for just $26.99.

3. Albanese

60 Calories | 0 g Fat | 0 g Net Carbs

This is the top-selling sugar free gummy bear brand on Amazon. An average of 3.5 stars out of 1,643 reviews at the time I’m writing this, with a flavor rating of 4.3 stars — not too shabby. According to some reviews, these are the best-tasting bears out there. One 5-star reviewer said these gummy bears are “soft, and they have just the right amount of firmness to be satisfying to chew on… eating the lemon-flavored bear reminded me of the tangy taste of actual lemon zest.” Indeed, if you’re ready to dive in headfirst, you can grab a 5 lb bag and find out if the legends are true.

4. SweetGourmet

50 Calories | 0 g Fat | 0 g Net Carbs

“These gummy bears may be sugar free, but they’re bursting with delicious fruit flavor!” to quote the product description. Albanese takes the cake in terms of the number of reviews, but, this is the next best option if you’re going for a value buy, as you can buy a 10 lb bag for about $50. Plus, the product boasts a solid 4 stars out of 635 reviews.

5. SmartSweets Gummy Bears

90 Calories | 0 g Fat | 5 g Net Carbs

Healthwise, these are unquestionably the “cleanest” bears to shop for. No maltitol or maltitol syrups, carnauba wax, no sugar alcohols, or any artificial colors or ingredients. Technically, each serving contains 3 grams of sugar, but there are 0 grams of added sugar. The ingredients are prebiotic soluble fiber from tapioca, gelatin, chicory root fiber, citric acid, malic acid, fruit, and vegetable juice (for color), natural fruit flavor, coconut oil, stevia leaf extract, and carnauba wax. And following in Jelly Belly and Brach’s footsteps, these new sugar-free gummy bears come in individual 90 calorie bags. These are labeled “sour,” so if your personal preference is a more traditional gummy bear, go with one of the other options above.

These are the best sugar free gummies you can have in 2021.
