Testing the Product: Packaging and Taste Test

Packaged in purple and a subtle shade of peach, KOS sleep gummies are presented in a thick, biodegradable circular tube with a removal slide up lid. The gummies are individually packed, making it so easy to grab and go! Additionally, individual packaging means you will be feel the stickiness of the gum on your fingers as much and do not melt into a giant gum blob! What we like about the packing is that it does not feel bulky, though circular in shape, it is easy to carry around and the colours and cartoon drawings on it makes it eye catching!
At first bite, the thick gummy melts in your mouth, releasing some flavour. As it was a blind taste test, our initial guess was that it was grape flavoured (plus with the purple packaging, who would have thought it was green apple). However after a few chews, the green apple flavour came out and amazingly, we were also able to taste the chamomile and lavender. We thought that it would be a subtle taste, hence was pleasantly surprised that we could taste the flower flavours. The green apple flavour gradually disappears. With 3 chews, you have already swallowed the entire piece and what is left is really just the flavours of the flowers.
The taste of the gum fortunately does not linger after swallowing. And with other gums, they may stick to your teeth, but with KOS’, there is no residue left.
The product does not contain wheat, gluten, dairy eggs, soy, tree nuts, shellfish, sesame, fish or gelatin.

‘great quality product. It really works as intended…I love the smell and looks of it!’ – Customer on Iherb
Summary: Should you get yourself KOS Sleep Gummies?
Close to their Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies, we give KOS Nighty Nite! Sleep Gummies an overall rating for 11/10 as the flavour of flowers is just lovely, especially when you are struggling with restless nights. Other than its taste, we are also a fan of the colours and fun reflected on the packaging. With all things soothing packed in an easy reach box, what more can you ask for!
