The only protein in these colorful treats come from all that gelatin — gummy bears are primarily made up of sugar.

Haribo’s Goldbears, for example, hold 6.9 grams of protein and 46 grams of sugar for every 100 grams of gummies you consume.

Even the sugar-free variety shouldn’t be eaten too often. Sugar-free gummy bears usually have sugar alcohols added to them instead — they have fewer calories than sugar and won’t affect your blood sugar levels as much — but some can have very unpleasant effects on your bowel movements.
