Vita cubes has been around for quite some time now. I’ve read so much about it via blogs and it surprisingly has a lot of positive feedback.
As any other moms, I’m skeptical when it comes to sweets and anything labeled as candy. Healthy and candies do not usually marry in the same sentence. Most of you will probably agree with me that candy equals sugar and is thus unhealthy. Having heard so much about it though got me curious and made me want to do a taste test and see what the hype is about.
