Smart Sweets is a candy manufacturer currently offering five really amazing gummy candy products; Sweet Fish, Sour Blast Buddies, Peach Rings, Gummy Bears, and Sour Gummy Bears. These candies are the closest to what you would expect from similar sugar candies that I’ve found yet, and have a satisfying, stick-to-your-teeth, squishy gummy texture.

The chocolate frosting had a slightly gritty, made-from-sugar-granules feel as well, which overall made these to be very satisfying donuts.
