Apple cider vinegar has recently gained a famed reputation as a silver bullet to health. It seems to solve (or at least aid) a myriad of issues that many rather not talk about: Weight gain, slowing metabolism, reduced body functioning. 😔😔😔
But the main objection raised to the miracle solution that is apple cider vinegar?
Its taste. It’s been described as vile, awfully sour and simply unbearable. 🤢
But what if someone could find a way to take the best benefits that apple cider vinegar has to offer, and instead distill it down into a delicious snack, a treat even? 😍😍😍
And by a pure stroke of luck, Goli has done just that. Knowing that a spoonful of vinegar is well outside the comfort zone of many, they’ve created their very own line of apple cider vinegar gummies to make health simple; combining a delicious taste with powerful ingredients for real results.
The brand has also expanded beyond just apple cider vinegar gummies, and are now offering ashwagandha gummies, superfruits gummies and supergreens gummies, all of which offer different compositions and health benefits. (And think about the combination of them all together!) 💯
If you’re feeling a little skeptical about yet another gummy-form health supplement, we’ve got you. And so have the likes of a ton of reviewers, including magazines like PopSugar, Refinery29, Women’s Health and Byrdie. The brand has also chalked up a whopping 500K followers on Instagram (yes, half a million people, that is), so there definitely is something to shout about here.
Gummies as good as gol(i)
But first, let’s get down to first principles: What exactly is so amazing about apple cider vinegar, and why should we be consuming it?
In case you’re wondering if apple cider vinegar is some kind of new-age, recent discovery that crowds have recently started flocking to, that isn’t the case at all. Instead, apple cider vinegar has been used for centuries as a traditional remedy for digestion, gut health and regulation of appetite.
To create apple cider vinegar, real apples are crushed and juiced to produce what is called a “cider”. The apple cider then undergoes a unique fermentation process to become apple cider vinegar.
The primary reason why apple cider vinegar is considered to be helpful is because of the acetic acid it contains. Apple cider vinegar also contains healthy doses of potassium, and in some products, amino acids and antioxidants too! Studies and scientific data show that these ingredients can support immunity, improve skin health and potentially suppress excessive appetites, thereby in turn leading to an improvement in weight management. 🔥
But since apple cider vinegar works so well on its own (in a liquid bottled form), why bother with Goli’s gummy version of this health food? Why not go straight to the source?
That’s because Goli’s found a way to not only make apple cider vinegar more delicious (in turn making it easier to form an actual habit of consuming apple cider vinegar), but to even improve on the nutrients being taken in through their gummies. 💪
In particular, Goli’s apple cider vinegar gummies contain a patented formula made with Vitamins B9 and B12 to help support a whole range of healthy body functions, including energy metabolism, healthy immune function, heart health, healthy nutrient metabolism, a healthy nervous system, a boost in antioxidant support and improvements in general health and wellbeing. 🧘🧘♂️🧘♀️
We get that it sounds a little too good to be true that a whole bunch of these health-boosting effects can be brought on by simply chewing on a gummy, but let’s look at the list of ingredients they contain, and you’ll get just why.
What’s in the Goli ACV gummy?
Goli prides itself in offering products that are natural, effective, and containing “ingredients you can pronounce”. We love how they’re taking on the mantle of ensuring transparency of ingredients and nutrients in their products, and this is put on full display on their website which discusses each ingredient presented in their apple cider vinegar gummies. 😎
But if you’re pressed for time, you’re in luck – we’re doing a quick fire round reviewing each of the ingredients in the apple cider vinegar gummies created by Goli below:
- Apple Cider Vinegar (duh): Goli’s gummies are made from apple cider vinegar powder, which was developed from raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar.
- Beetroots and Pomegranates: The vibrant color and distinctive flavor of beetroots and pomegranates enhance both the flavor profile and appearance of the Goli apple cider vinegar gummies.
- Pectin: Unlike most other gummies on the market that are formed with gelatin, Goli’s apple cider vinegar gummies are made from fruit peels (pectin), which make them vegan-friendly!
- Vitamin B12: This helps support cellular energy production in the body by breaking down food consumed into available energy.
- Vitamin B9: Also referred to as “folic acid”, this is an essential nutrient that supports the overall health and general wellbeing of its consumers.
Do note that the gummies also contain a bunch of other ingredients to make the gummy what it is: Think organic tapioca syrup, water, sodium citrate, citric acid, natural apple flavors, and more. These appeared relatively harmless to us, but the full ingredients list is made available on Goli’s website. 👌
Put together, each Goli apple cider vinegar gummy contains:
- Total Carbohydrates: 3.5g
- Total Sugars: 2g
- Apple Cider Vinegar: 500mg
- Organic Beetroot: 40mcg
- Organic Pomegranate: 40mcg
- Vitamin B9 (50% daily value): 200 mcg DFE
- Vitamin B12 (50% daily value): 1.2mcg
The recommended dosage is about 1-2 gummies, 3 times daily. That totals about 3-6 gummies per day, so you can imagine the multiple-fold nutritional boosts you’ll be getting from day to day. 🤩🤩🤩
Steering clear of the bad stuff
What’s almost as impressive as what the Goli apple cider vinegar gummies contain, is what it does not.
The brand has somehow found a way to distill a whole bunch of nutrition boosting ingredients into a bite-sized treat without introducing a whole bunch of dreaded allergens and preservatives, and for that they truly have our admiration. 😱 🤯 👏
We’re talking about the fact that Goli’s apple cider vinegar gummies are free from yeast, wheat, milk, eggs, gluten, soy, gelatin, peanuts, shellfish, dairy, artificial sweeteners, colors from artificial sources, artificial flavors, agave or salicylates. The products are also vegan and kosher. 🙌
With a constitution like that, it’s no wonder Goli’s apple cider vinegars have been gaining traction the way they have.
Any negative side effects?
When jumping into any new health regime, it’s normal to wonder if there would be any side effects. That’s a similar thought we had when considering making Goli’s apple cider vinegar gummies a part of our daily routine.
Turns out it’s not so much Goli’s apple cider vinegar gummies that we should be worrying about – but rather our own body’s tolerance and reception to apple cider vinegar. Generally known to be a rather strong ingredient, the way in which each digestive system responds to it tends to differ.
Some common negative side effects associated with consumption of apple cider vinegar include:
- Bloating and nausea due to delayed stomach emptying
- Lowered potassium levels
- Interference with other medications (which is why it’s important to consult your medical provider if you’re currently on a bunch of other medications!)
Even then, these side effects generally present themselves only in cases of large doses of apple cider vinegar consumed. This isn’t the case with Goli’s gummies.
As for Goli’s apple cider vinegar gummies specifically, we’d only caution that these gummies do contain sugar and pectin (which also contains sugar), so customers with diabetes ought to consider if this is an appropriate supplement for them.
As with all health supplements, it’s always prudent to run it past your medical provider before starting consumption – just to play it safe! 😉
FAQs on Goli’s ACV gummies
One of the best ways to learn about something is from questions being asked about it, so we’ve compiled some of the most informative FAQs (including some from the Goli website) right here.
Should Goli gummies be taken with food?
In general, Goli gummies may be taken with or without food, although for best absorption it’s recommended that the gummies are taken with food. Note: This applies not just to the ACV gummies, but to all gummies offered by Goli (which we’ll discuss in the following sections of this review!)
How many Goli gummies should I take per day?
The serving is 1-2 gummies, 3 times daily.
Do Goli ACV gummies help you lose weight?
In general, they can, but it depends! While apple cider vinegar isn’t an ingredient guaranteed to shed calories internally, customers have reported that they have experienced increased fullness and reduced appetite, which in turn may assist with weight loss. It’s worth noting that while Goli touts its apple cider vinegar gummies as helpful in promoting gut health, it doesn’t make any claims as to weight loss. 👌
Are Goli gummies FDA approved?
As Goli gummies are a dietary supplement, they do not require FDA approval. For this reason, any health claims made by Goli have not been evaluated by the FDA. That said, fear not – Goli gummies are made in an FDA-approved facility, and are safe for consumption. It’s just worth noting that the company’s medicinal claims are not explicitly supported by the FDA.
Do Goli gummies really work?
Goli has overwhelmingly positive reviews, with many people finding they act as an aid to weight loss, improve digestive health, and support overall wellness. There are those who report no difference, but these reviews are in the minority.
Goli’s other gummies
It bears mentioning that Goli has plenty to boast of, even aside from its apple cider vinegar gummies. In particular, the company has created 3 other types of gummies, each boasting a unique health benefit which sounds irresistibly tempting (especially since the supplements present themselves in yummy gummy form!) 🤩🤩🤩
We’ll quickly review each of them in turn below.
These gummies, affectionately named “Ashwa Gummies” for short, are aimed at helping you to relax, restore and unwind. Tell me that isn’t exactly what we need. 💁♀️💁💁♂️
The key ingredient in these gummies is clinically-studied KSM-66 Ashwagandha Root Extract, which is an ancient Indian herb which has been recognized for its medicinal properties for over 5000 years. Ashwagandha is also an adaptogen, a plant which helps the body maintain balance and adjust to stress.
Another key appearance in these gummies is Vitamin D, which plays an essential role in the healthy development of bones, teeth and muscle, and also supports a healthy immune system. 🏃🏃♂️🏃♀️
The result? A simple gummy that helps with a whole myriad of desired health benefits, including:
- Reduced stress and promoted relaxation
- Improved quality of life
- A strengthened immune system
- Promoted memory and concentration
- Better control over stress-related food cravings
- Supporting quality of sleep
- Supported physical performance and endurance
- Improved sexual health
They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but a daily dose of superfruits can do way better than just that. These clean, plant-based gummies are filled with antioxidants, vitamins and essential nutrients and are formulated to keep you radiant, rejuvenated and refreshed. ✨✨
Each daily serving of these Goli Superfruit Gummies contain:
- More Vitamin A than 29 apricots
- More Zinc than 407 blackberries
- More Vitamin E than 4.8 avocados
- More Vitamin A than 7 pink grapefruits

Believe me, I know. 🤯🤯🤯
The result, these yummy gummies help with promoting collagen formation and maintaining skin health, structuring and elasticity, allowing for skin radiance/glow to be healthily restored. It also helps provide antioxidant support to support the immune system, keeping you on your feet day in and out!
If you’ve struggled with getting greens in your system, then the Goli Supergreen gummies are the solution for you. These gummies are formulated with a unique supergreens & probiotic blend, which boast the following:
- More Vitamin A than 62 brussel sprouts
- More Thiamin than 52 cups of spinach
- More Iron than 8 cups of broccoli
- More Vitamin B6 than 2 cups of asparagus

broccoli, parsley, kale, Vitamin A, Vitamin B12, Vitamin B6, thiamin, spirulina, chlorella, barley grass, moringa leaf, probiotics and more. Goli wasn’t kidding when they touted this as a supergreen mash-up.
This gummy is tailored specifically to aid digestive health, immunity, liver function, nervous system, energy metabolism and overall health and wellbeing. In a nutshell – it’s for absolutely everyone. 💯💯💯
Bonus: Chocolatey bites
Introducing the all-new Goli Bites, a chocolate covered bite (made with real cocoa!) which contains the essential vitamins and nutrients which each specific Bite is formulated towards:
Goli Multi Bites are tailored to provide 10+ vitamins and essential nutrients to help support your immunity, nervous system and bone and muscular health.
Goli Calm Bites are made with KSM-66 Ashwagandha (the same as featured in the Ashwa Gummies), and help with reducing stress and stress-related food cravings, improving sexual health and promoting your quality of sleep.
Finally, Goli Energy Bites are made with Vitamins B6, B9 and B12 to help support cellular energy production, a healthy nervous system and immune system, as well as improve heart health.
For those who somehow aren’t on board with the gummies that Goli’s formulated (which we honestly can’t fathom why) – these chocolatey bites are quite literally the solution for you to have your cake and eat it too. They’re gluten-free, vegetarian, D kosher, free of artificial colors, flavors and preservatives, and best of all, are only 25 calories per bite. #score ⚡️⚡️⚡️
Getting into Goli
Now that we’ve pretty much boasted through Goli’s entire product offering, how exactly can you get your hands on Goli’s gummies, and how do you get the best bang for your buck?
Firstly, Goli gummies are available directly from Goli’s website, as well as select other retailers including Walmart, Walgreens and Target. While there appear to occasionally be Goli sales on Amazon, we wouldn’t recommend purchases from there as many of these sales appear to be knock-offs. 🙅♀️🙅🙅♂️
Secondly, each bottle of gummies or chocolatey bites are sold either in single bottles, or in multi-packs of 3 bottles or 5 bottles. There is no price difference in buying the products in single-bottles or in mutli-packs as the cost per bottle remains the same. (The only exception is for the Bites, which offers a $5 discount for purchases of the 5-bottle multipack).
However, you do get a significantly better deal with either the subscription model or with the “Complete Health Pack”. The subscription model applies for any product and offers a 15% discount on the total subscription price so there are definite savings if you’re looking to invest in Goli products in the long term.
If you’re looking to give their entire product offering a shot at a steal, then the “Complete Health Pack” may be your best bet. They have 3 specific bundles:
- The Complete Goli Nutrition 7-Pack contains the 4 gummy flavours and the 3 Bite flavors, so you’re literally sampling every single product offered by Goli!
- The Complete Goli Gummies 4-Pack offers the 4 gummy flavours and none of the Bites.
- The Relaxation Bundle offers the Ashwa Gummies and the Calm Bites – so this would be a perfect bundle if you already have your daily nutritional supplements covered and are looking to zone in on relaxation-related supplements.
Another huge feature of Goli products that we absolutely love is that they offer free shipping worldwide. Pretty groundbreaking, but we love how the company’s going the extra mile to make things easier (and more cost-effective) for their customers!
Lastly, to further bolster customer confidence, Goli offers a 30-day money-back guarantee period, with refunds provided for any dissatisfaction with both unopened and opened bottles. This allows first-time customers to dive head-first without much hesitation at all. 😀
What other customers are saying
Now let’s turn to the word on the street: What exactly are Goli’s customers saying?
We’re glad to report that it’s overwhelmingly good news and praises sung of Goli’s highly-inventive range of products. 🥇
The brand claims to have over a million customer reviews from “real people who love Goli”. The majority of consumers praise the delicious taste of the gummies, with one customer raving, “I can now honestly say I look forward to my apple cider vinegar in the morning.”
Other customers have claimed that consuming the ACV gummies have boosted wellness, reduced stomach bloating and helped with a plethora of other stomach issues. Some have even claimed that their appetites have been brought under control, leading to weight loss. One particular reviewer even raves that having eaten Goli, they “no longer have heartburn issues or belching”.
The other non-ACV gummy products have also attracted rave reviews. One customer who is “not a fan of greens” raved that it was “the first time in my life that I’ve ever actually enjoyed getting in my daily vitamins and essential nutrients”.
Now that the throngs of happy customers have voiced their satisfaction, all that remains is for you to jump in and give it a go yourself. 😎
Our final verdict on Goli
To sum it all up, we’re nothing short of amazed at how Goli has quite literally made health more delicious than ever, subverting the idea that if it tastes good, it mustn’t be good for you. 😂
They’ve also clearly put much thought into formulating the different gummies, each providing a unique health benefit that many may find appealing for themselves. In a nutshell, here’s a list of the pros and cons in our review of the Goli gummies:
- Free from artificial preservatives, flavors and ingredients
- Delicious tasting, so it’ll be easier to form a habit of consumption
- Multiple gummies and Bites targeting different health benefits so you can customize your collection depending on what you need
- No synthetic colors or chemicals
- Easily portable for on the go diet supplements
- Free worldwide shipping
- Generous returns policy
- Does contain sugar, and may be less suitable for diabetics
- Apple cider vinegar in particular may not be everyone’s cup of tea
- Can be expensive, especially in comparison to the raw ingredients (eg: vegetables, fruits, apple cider vinegar even)
In our view, the pros clearly outweigh the cons.
And swinging the pendulum further in its favor, we also wanted to end off this review highlighting the good causes that Goli has committed itself to: They have partnered with Vitamin Angels to provide a 1-1 Vitamin grant for a child in need with the purchase of every 6-month supply of vitamins. This is aimed specifically at stamping out malnutrition, which is the #1 cause of preventable child deaths. It makes perfect sense that Goli has partnered with Vitamin Angels to reduce malnutrition in children by giving them access to life-saving vitamins and minerals, and we would love nothing more than to contribute to its noble cause. 😇😇😇
If all of this resonates with you – join Goli today in bettering not just your own health, but also the lives of many malnourished children in need! Better health has never looked, tasted or felt so good.
