If you’ve been around here much, you may know that I am a fan of gummy vitamins. Why? Well, they taste like candy but are good for you. That’s a win-win for a candy lover like me. When the folks at vitafive offered me the opportunity to try their daily vitamin packs for a month, I said “of course!” Vitafive provides a variety of “health…
