Trader Joe’s Scandinavian Swimmers are soft, chewy candies, in the shape of sea creatures, bursting with fruity flavors, and colored with spirulina and fruit & vegetable extracts (pumpkin, carrot, black carrot, black currant, and apple).
The creatures within the aquatically-themed pouch are some you might encounter in the ocean, or perhaps an aquarium. There’s a blue dolphin (huckleberry flavored), a red lobster (berry flavored), a sea horse (mango peach flavored), and a rock fish (rock flavored—just kidding, it tastes like orange).
They’re soft, not-quite gummy in texture, and much more flavorful than other, similarly soft candies we’ve tasted. We haven’t seen any other candies in this category whose ingredients are as wholesome as ours—we’re not calling these “health food,” mind you. We know they’re candy. They’re just candy without so much junk in their recipe.
They’re also candy you can afford to keep in your secret stash. We’re selling each 14 ounce pouch for $2.99, a splashy value, every day. Only at your neighborhood Trader Joe’s.
