With Lynn over at the Actor’s Diet always showing pictures of these, I got curious and picked up a bag for myself. Ginger People Original Chew is a soft chewy candy with powdered sugar dusting. Intense ginger flavor a little bit of heat from the ginger. I will have to describe the texture of the chew as a firmer, chewier version of Turkish Delight. Very addicting. Ginger has a lot of health benefits and especially aids the digestive system. After I eat one, I get a warm and cozy feeling in the stomach. No wonder so many people like to travel with these yummy chews on hand. These are suppose to help settle the stomach and ease motion sickness. Great tasting AND with benefits, awesome! I’m pretty sure you can get the same benefits if you gnaw on a hunk of ginger, which is the natural way to go, but few can stomach a feat like that. Cooking and making tea out of ginger is another easy way to get the benefits of ginger, but for traveling, these Ginger Chews are the way to go. I keep my bag in the fridge so it is firm in the beginning, but as the temperature in my mouth warms it up, it becomes chewy again. I always try to not chew on it to make it last longer, but I’m a “chewer” so it is usually gone in 30 seconds. Love the ginger flavor in it. No wonder Ginger People’s Ginger Chew is the #1 best selling ginger candy. Made in Indonesia. One serving (2 chews) is 40 calories, 1 WW, zero fat, zero cholesterol, zero sodium, 10 grams of carbohydrates, 10 grams of sugar, no protein. The cute ginger mascot is enough to get me to buy these adorable darlings. Yeah, I am a sucker for cute packaging. Want some Ginger People Chews?
