Smart Sweets candy from Costco is low in sugar, gluten-free, plant based and high in fibre!
I’m excited to be reviewing these Smart Sweets Peach Rings! I’ve previously reviewed the Smart Sweets Sweet Fish from Costco and really enjoyed them so I definitely wanted to pick these peach rings up. I love fuzzy peach candy or anything peach flavored.
These can be found in the snack/candy aisle and the item number is 2223465.
Other items I’ve reviewed from the Costco candy aisle are the Lamontagne Caffe Latte Almonds, Kirkland Signature Praline Pecans, Nature’s Intent Dark Chocolate Strawberries, Kirkland Signature Milk Chocolate Covered Almonds, love good fats Keto Snack Bars and Costco Kirkland Signature Chocolate Covered Raisins!
Amazing! These are SO good. They taste just like really fresh, sweet, juicy and slightly sour fuzzy peaches. You would never be able to tell these are low in sugar. They taste just like candy you’d buy from the bins in the store.
There’s two shades of peach rings, a darker orange and a light orange/yellow color. Both Sean and I couldn’t taste a difference between the two shades. The peach rings are slightly sour on the outside from the powdery/sugary substance but after you get through the initial slight sour flavor all that’s left is the taste of sweet peach. I usually don’t like anything sour but really enjoyed these and they weren’t too sour for me.
If you’re a candy fan and are looking for a slightly healthier version of your favorite peach rings from the convenience store I bet you’ll love the taste of the Smart Sweets Peach Rings.
I paid $11.89 Canadian for the 250 gram box of peach rings. It comes with five smaller 50 gram bags in the box. Way more expensive than any other peach rings I’ve bought but I paid for the fact they have no sugar alcohols, are rich in fibre and naturally flavored.
Each individual 50 gram pack has about 10 peach rings in it. The individual packs are easy to open and do not reseal, which is fine because you’ll eat them all right away anyways.
These are great for dessert or whenever you have a craving for something sweet! I like to snack on them while watching a movie. The best before date on the box is about 11 months from when I purchased the peach rings.
One bag (50 g) is 130 calories, zero grams of fat, 40 grams of carbohydrates, 17 grams of fibre, three grams of sugar, zero grams of protein and 95 mg of sodium.
These are gluten-free, plant-based but also have a ton of ingredients listed that I’m not too sure what they are! Oh well, they taste delicious.
Nutrition: 5/10 (not really all that nutritious but for candy they’re great)

New version is horrible, it has a very tough texture now.
I did a drop test from 1 feet of heigh, and it shattered instead of bounce.
They’re extremely hard candies with barely any flavors. It took 15 minutes to dissipate in my mouth, and I wish it ended after 5 seconds in my mouth. I bought a whole box, tokkk half a bag and threw the rest in the trash.
I’d rather buy an actual peach; cheaper, healthier and tastier.
They changed the ingredients in order to lower their costs, increase their profits and screw their loyal customers.
Once again, do NOT buy. You will 100% regret it.
Oh no! This is sad to hear!
FYI – These Smart Sweets are VERY different than they were 2 years ago. The BC company became successful on the backs of the keto community because all Smart Sweets USED to have only 7-8g net carbs per bag. Then just over a year ago manufacturing changed and they scaled up their US sales. They replaced many ingredients with cheaper versions (e.g. corn starch instead of tapioca flour), took out all the sugar alcohols and DIDN”T EVEN TELL ANYONE. As a diabetic I was completely baffled why my sugars were spiking after a bag of these. Then I saw that there are now 33g of net carbs per bag! A flippin recipe change warning on the box would have been polite. And those isomalto oligosaccharides are not healthy if you do the research (not pseudo online research, RESEARCH). So they’ve dissed the whole community that made them successful in the first place. Very greedy and not cool. I had to return three boxes to Costco.
I bought these recently to try and loved them! I have a total sweet tooth and eat too much at once so am cutting back. This is the perfect portion size when get a craving.
Definitely a good portion size!
