These Could Be A Bit Better: Vitafusion MultiVites Gummy Vitamins

Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:Good flavors; 200% of vitamin D recommendation; soft; natural colors; big bottle
Cons:Not as complete as other vitamins
The Bottom Line: These are pretty good vitamins at a great price. But if you are looking for things like CoQ10, iron, etc. in a vitamin, look elsewhere.
I tried the One A Day Gummy Vitamins for the first time a few years ago just to see what they were like and find that I no longer want to buy a vitamin that isn't gummy. I use them as a tiny dessert after dinner and really look forward to them!

Vitafusion MultiVites is a gummy multivitamin for adults (both men and women) that comes in a big bottle of 150. Each serving is two gummies, so these will last one person for 75 days. The bottle is made of hard, clear plastic and has a bright lime green cap.
From Vitafusion's website: Vitafusion MultiVites provide an essential daily formula in a delicious gummy vitamin. They are specially formulated for adults and contain only natural colors and award winning flavors. They are the nutritious and delicious alternative.
These vitamins are gluten-free, peanut-free, dairy-free and soy-free. There is 7.5 calories in each vitamin, so there are 15 calories in one two-vitamin serving.
Ingredients (other than vitamins):
Glucose syrup, sucrose, gelatin, natural flavors, citric acid, lactic acid, colors (carrot and blueberry juices, annatto extract), fractionated coconut oil and beeswax.
I picked up Vitafusion MultiVites instead of my beloved One A Day Gummy Vitamins because of the price. One A Day Gummy Vitamins were $9.49 for 50 vitamins, while Vitafusion MultiVites were $14.99 for 150 vitamins. I decided to give the Vitafusion MultiVites a try because I got more for my money, plus I wanted to see what another brand of gummy vitamins was like, as I had been taking the One A Day Gummy Vitamins for about three years.
Another thing that caught my eye about these vitamins is that "200% Vitamin D" is printed on the label. I've been hearing a lot about how many people are deficient in vitamin D, so I was interested in these vitamins for the vitamin D aspect as well. As for the other vitamins in a serving (two gummies), they are:
Vitamin A: 50%
Vitamin C: 50%
Vitamin E: 50%
Vitamin B-6: 200%
Folic Acid: 100%
Pantothenic Acid: 100%
Other vitamins and minerals include choline, inositol, lutein and boron but no daily value is given because a daily value has not been established.
So how does the vitamin content stack up to the One A Day Gummy Vitamins? They're about the same, but they do vary on a few things. However, they don't really stack up to another brand I have bought in the past, Nature's Code. Nature's Code includes vitamins and minerals that are specific to men and women in specific age groups. But Nature's Code is an ultra premium brand and is much more expensive. So I do think that for what I am paying for the Vitafusion MultiVites, these are pretty good but again, I'd like more vitamins included in this multi-vitamin and more of the daily recommended amount.
These vitamins contain natural flavors and colors. The flavors are berry, peach and orange. These flavors are good ones and are very mild. They don't scream "berry!" or "peach!" when you put them in your mouth but you will still know what flavor you are getting. These are shaped in sort of a round, vague raspberry shape, with a flat bottom and a top that reminds me of the texture of a raspberry. They are small in size, measuring about half an inch in size.
Vitafusion MultiVites are soft in texture. Again, comparing these to the One A Day Gummy Vitamins, these are quite soft to the firmer One A Day Gummy Vitamins, although both are "gummy" - but the Vitafusion MultiVites is closer to the softer texture of gummy candy. They're very easy to chew and swallow.
Since I've been taking vitamins for years now, I don't notice any difference in my energy level or my health since I've been taking these (a little over a month now). I feel just fine and I'm happy to be getting the 200% of vitamin D. I would like for these to contain 100% of the recommended daily amount of more of the vitamins and I would like it to contain more B vitamins. I guess they can't put iron and calcium in these because iron and calcium supplements are mainly for women, and these vitamins are for men AND women. (Note that Vitafusion does make a women's vitamin, but it contains just 10% of the recommended daily amount of calcium.) I'm not really disappointed in these vitamins per se, but I would like to see more vitamins included and would like to see more of certain vitamins in these. But they're about on par with other drugstore vitamins, so I can't complain too much. If I want a very complete multivitamin that is going to include a lot of other vitamins and minerals, I'll be paying a lot more, which I'm not always willing to do.
Price and Purchasing Information:
I bought my Vitafusion MultiVites Gummy Vitamins at my local K-Mart brick and mortar store for $14.99. They can also be purchased at Amazon.com and Drugstore.com for quite a bit less than the $14.99 I paid at K-Mart.
