Real Fruit Juice Gummie Bears in Calgary?

Hi All,
For Easter my mom always got us real fruit juice gummie bears (light yellow, dark yellow, light red and deep purple/red in colour). She bought them at the bulk food section of the health food store (in Grande Prairie Alberta). You can still get them there. I can't find any in Calgary. Does anyone have leads? I have checked Community Natural Foods and the main grocery stores. Any leads appreciated. Thanks!

  1. I think I've seen them at Blush Lane in Aspen Stone.

    Good luck!

      1. re: foodkarma

        Went to the Bulk Barn in Edm this weekend and bought some real fruit juice gummy bears. All the colours you described plus green. My fav gummy bears are the Haribo kind because they're slightly chewier than others but these were a good treat.

      2. Planet Organic Market has something like that in bulk, not sure if they're bears exactly. I used to get the jolly (think jelly) beans in the bin next to them. The jolly beans at least are fruit flavoured with no artificial colours.

        1. I think Amaranth sells the same flavors but shaped like berries.

          1. Annie's offers "Fruit Snacks" (http://www.annies.com/fruit_snacks), which I take it are a similar beast, albeit bunnies rather than bears. I've seen these at both Planet Organic locations.

            1. There's a retro candy store at Crossroads you might try.

              1. Annies (boxed in single serve packs) are at Superstore in the Natural Foods aisle, otherwise I've also seen them at Bulk Barn and as Jetgirly's pic shows above, they're available at Amaranth too.

                  And at Community Natural Foods, they are sold in the dried fruit and candies aisle, next to organic jelly beans and the like. Not in bulk bins, however--only in the containers like the ones shown in Jetgirly's pic.
