FAQ

There are two main reasons why:

1. Our ingredient costs are on average 6x-10x the price of full sugar gummies. Here’s a quick breakdown of the ingredients we use VS what would traditionally be used in regular gummies.

Ingredients we Use

As you can see, our better-for-you ingredients are way more expensive than sugar and corn syrup. However, as more companies start using these better-for-you ingredients, the market will adjust and prices will come down!

    As you can see, it is very expensive to operate a gummie startup. The good news is that as we become a bigger company, our costs will go down and we will pass those savings on to you. In the meantime, the price for our gummies is what we need to charge to make sure we stay in business. We really appreciate your understanding and your continued support for our small business!

     

    Here’s the net carb calculation for our gummies! 

    SOUR NOVAS = 42g carb - 8g fiber - 4g sugar alcohol - 11g allulose = 19g net carb

    WATERMELON SLICES = 41g carb - 8g fiber - 4g sugar alcohol - 11g allulose = 18g net carb

    PEACH BITES: 40g carb - 8g fiber - 4g sugar alcohol - 11g allulose = 17g net carb. 


    We understand that our gummies might not be considered keto-friendly and we’re working on a recipe that is! We tried very hard to make it so but at the same time wanted to balance the perfect texture so we needed to use some ingredients that unfortunately have some carbs. Stay tuned!


    Yes!


    Our products are made with all kosher ingredients however we do not have a certification yet!


    Yes they are 100% dairy-free!


    Yes they are 100% gluten-free!


    Our gummies are not keto friendly given they have 16-17g of net carbs but we're working on a keto version!

     

    Our gummies are processed in a facility that also processes peanuts, tree nuts, wheat and milk. While there are specific practices in place to avoid any cross contamination, it is recommended to avoid eating our product if you have allergies to these ingredients. 


    We use Allulose, a non-artificial sweetener found in wheat, raisins and figs. Because it isn't metabolized by the body, it doesn't raise blood sugar or insulin levels and provides minimal calories. However, we always recommend that you speak with your doctor if you have health or diet-related concerns before consuming these gummies.


    Allulose is a natural sweetener found in foods like raisins and figs. It tastes like sugar, but doesn't act like sugar in your body. Since allulose isn't absorbed by the body, you subtract it, along with fiber to find the net carbs per bag. Allulose is only in our U.S recipe (for now!)


    Each package of Snack Owl gummies only has 2-5g of sugar, which is considerably less compared to other brands; however, we recommend consulting your doctor or physician prior to consumption if you have health or diet-related concerns!


    Our products are manufactured in compliance with FDA standards.


    In the USA!


    This would depend on what specific dietary restrictions or food allergies you have. Always consult a doctor or physician if you are unsure.
