Swedish Fish is some of the very best candy I've ever had--and you can take that from me, an increasingly aged old man who's eaten a lot of candy in his day! LOL Seriously, though, these little red fish shaped candies are indeed every bit as soft, chewy and delicious as they say they are! Their sweet cherry flavor is something you can easily get hooked on--stock up on these before any storm hits! SMILE

Although they are a fat free food they contain sugar; and sugar can turn to fat in your system if you're not especially active. Eat these with this caveat in mind. Sugar is not exactly the greatest thing for your teeth, either, so if you need a sugar free treat for any health reasons, you need to pick another type of candy.

The Swedish Fish come in easy to handle five ounce bags; each bag is easy to open and you don't have to close it up tightly again for the candy to remain fresh. As long as you're going to eat the five ounce bag within a few days you don't have to worry about freshness.

Overall, this candy is great to munch on when you're at the movies or anytime you get a craving for some really yummy, chewy candy. Enjoy!

Swedish fish candy is the all time candy. They are great in taste and the fish itself is a nice size. They taste like cherry! You just can't snack on one you need a couple to be completely satisfied. They are very affordable. You can find them in your local grocery store or dollar store. The only negative I have to say is they do tend to stick in your teeth which I don't particularly care for.

These will always be a guilty pleasure for me. While these candies don’t have any “good” ingredients in them, they make me feel good! 🤣 I love their sweet and slightly tangy flavor. They are such a classic! Not to mention they are cute little fishies. The texture of these are soft but chewy, totally delightful. I don’t go out of my way to buy these but they are devoured within minutes!

Excellent gummy candy that does not involve the use of gelatin. Gelatin is made from boiled pig and cow cartilage and if you watch a video on how it’s made, you’ll never eat most gummy candies again. However, on the forefront of the issue, there’s many companies creating fantastic alternatives. Swedish fish has always been on the better side of things and had no need to reformulate

I cannot believe that I have only known about Swedish Fish for a handful of years! It is my go to pick for gummy candy! I always ask for it in my stocking or if anyone is heading for a trip out or into the store I ask them to grab me a bag. I am so happy my mom introduced me to them. The flavor is amazing and the perfect amount of sweetness and chewiness!

Swedish Fish have been one of my favorite candies for many years, since I was a kid. I will buy a bag of them at least twice a month to have around to snack on while watching TV or reading a book. My youngest daughter snagged a few from my bag last summer and decided she likes them, too, so now I buy us each our own bag when I see them at the store. Yummy!
Recently when I was buying something in the cafeteria at school, I saw a pack of sweets in the sweets and candy section called “Swedish Fish”. It had a pretty blue and yellow packaging with pictures of red candy fish on the front of it, so it was mostly the packaging which influenced my decision to buy it. I had no idea what the candy would look or taste like inside. It kind of reminds me of gummy worms. These tasty red fish are perfect for a savory treat after lunch or a little snack at the game.

These are full of my childhood memories as we used to get them every Christmas. Now, they tend to give me headaches after eating too many, or they just taste bland. What concerns me most is the unnatural shade of red that these candies are, and I wish that the company would start using healthier, natural dyes. They are still overall a great candy.

Swedish Fish® Red Candy are a favorite of my family and have been for quite some time. Growing up me and my brother loved them, it was always a treat when our mother would bring these home for us! They're affordable and yummy, especially for us sweet tooth people. My only complaint is how sticky they are, but that comes with the territory of eating anything gummy

Ripping open a bag of Swedish Fish reminds me of being a little girl at the baseball park, and going to the concession stand for my favorite gummy candy treat. The taste and texture of Swedish Fish are perfect, and they make the most delicious snack that puts a smile on my face and reminds me of happy childhood memories!
