Treat Yourself

Koochikoo Peppermint Drops

Free at last? Sugar-free that is. You can’t run away from your sweet tooth, but you can choose to satisfy your cravings with a healthier candy. Koochikoo Peppermint Drops are here to provide you with naturally flavored sweets minus all the unwanted additives and sugar. What’s their secret you ask? 

Koochikoo uses a special prebiotic tapioca base with a “soft honey” texture and sweetness. It is derived from the cassava plant root and has a mild sweetness. It has the added benefits of being low calorie compared to sugar, and a prebiotic which aids in digestion. Tapioca also only takes about 25% as much water to cultivate as cane sugar.

This is key to help avoid added sweeteners like sugar, stevia, sorbitol, and maltitol for a cleaner flavor and mouthfeel. 

Each drop contains 3 grams of tapioca (an excellent source) and is USDA Organic, gluten-free, Kosher, and vegan. They are also keto-friendly (1 net carb per drop) and a 0-point snack on the Weight Watchers program. These delicious and nutritious candy drops are certain to Tickle Your Tastebuds! 

Koochikoo’s mission is more than just to reform the sugar-polluted candy category. Koochikoo means “to smile,” and these candies are here to bring smiles to children and adults around the world. A portion of their proceeds are donated to SmileTrain – a charity dedicated to correcting cleft palates for children in developing countries.
