I’ve never been a big candy person.  Even as a kid, I never got my sugar fix from packs of Skittles, Starburst, lollipops, Nerds, or really any other type of hard candy.  As I got older, my taste in candy never really changed.  Even during Halloween when the kids go trick or treating and we have a huge bowl of candy at the front door the whole week, I can easily walk by each day and not touch any of it.  However, I was known to enjoy a good old Gummy Bear every now and then.  Something about that cute, soft, and squishy texture just pulled me in every time and I couldn’t resist popping a few here and there when they are around.

A few months ago, I had seen a post on Pinterest for BCAA gummies and was absolutely intrigued especially since I drink my PEScience Amino IV EVERY single day.  Literally, not a day goes by without them and I go through one entire container in under two weeks (THANK GOD for my 30% off coupon).  Usually by 12pm each day, I’ve already drank over a gallon of water.  How?  My Amino IV’s!  I fill my gallon container with water, add two scoops of amino’s and sip, slurp, and chug chug chug.  Totally addicted.  I LOVE how I can get the majority of my daily water in by mid day with no problem and I owe that completely to my PEScience branch chain’s.  SO SO delicious and I know my muscles are being taken care of properly, thats always a plus!

So, getting my amino acid fix AND a gummy fix, together?  Yup, I jumped on that immediately!  Obviously, I’m not one to go for something quite so plain so I fancied my gummies up just a bit…

Kiwi Watermelon anyone?  Don’t mind if I do!

Oh my God, how cute right???

I really wanted to find a gummy bear mold but Michael’s and JoAnne’s didn’t have them so I went with another shape I could live with.  Can’t ever go wrong with hearts!  I chose a larger silicon mold over the little plastic trays you can find just because I think it’s more versatile and I can use it for future baking!  What I have been doing is making a big batch of these gummies when I do meal/food prep, then I put them in little baggy, store it in the fridge, and grab a few throughout the day (when I want a candy fix) OR bring the baggy to the gym with me and snack on them intra workout.  Love love love…

And for those who are unfamiliar with branch chain amino acids, here are some of the benefits to keeping these a part of your daily intake:

  • reduce protein & muscle break down
  • promotes muscle growth
  • support muscle maintenance, endurance, and recovery
  • prevent fatigue
  • improve exercise performance
  • reduce muscle soreness
  • as previously mentioned… they are a GREAT & easy way to get your H2O in

All in all, BCAA’s are an amazing addition to your supplement stack!  I can’t go a day without mine and now that I get to enjoy them in my water AND as a “candy”?  I’m a very happy girl!

    Do you have a particular type of gelatin you use & do you think it would work to omit the kiwi or add berries in place of it? Excited to make these but not a kiwi lover 😉

      Hi Meagan! I just use KNOX gelatin! Easy peasy!!! And you can definitely play with the recipe and add whatever fruit you like! I just used kiwi because I thought it went well with the watermelon!!!

    How many jellies does the recipe yield? Also, do these end up being chewy even after being placed in the fridge?

      It depends on how large your mold is! I got 24 and these were fairly large!!! They are chewy just like a gummy candy!

    Hi, great idea!
    Could I ask what size/grams each packet of Gelatin is as I’m in Ireland and don’t have that brand.
    Many thanks

    Great recipe! So, do you have to eat these cold (like jello)? Or do they stay solid so that one can keep them in a pantry? Thanks so much!
