It's 2021. There's a Starbucks or Dunkin' Donuts on every corner. Convenience store shelves are lined with countless brands of energy drinks, each loaded with caffeine and various amounts of vitamins, minerals and other ingredients claiming a multitude of benefits.
Some of the aforementioned options are full of calories and sugar, while others are sugar- and calorie-free and relatively harmless to your waistline and nutritional journey, if consumed in moderation.
We also live in a time when food is fast and plentiful, and snacking is done in mindless excess, but many of the things we choose to eat are void of the nutrition we need to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
What if we told you there was a product that was the best of all these things and scenarios and will be featured in the September edition of The Lift Box, so subscribers can get a first-hand look, just in time for Halloween?
Enter CandyCan, a new addition to the candy aisle that is low in calories, sugar and net carbs, satisfies your sweet tooth, packs the same punch as your favorite Frappuccino and offers the focus and concentration you expect from your go-to nootropic.
This "FOCUS" version of CandyCan gummies incorporates caffeine, L theanine and alpha GPC for a symbiotic beneficial nootropic.
But wait, there's more.
CandyCan also offers a version of snackable gummies that makes the perfect late-night treat, "SLEEP," which features the same sweet, chewy satisfaction as the "FOCUS" formula mentioned earlier, but with melatonin and lemon balm, the perfect ingredients for a restful night's sleep.
The latest offering from nutrition-industry veterans Ryan Wiltse and Krik Angacian builds on the success and reputation they earned with their previous endeavor, Protes Protein Snacks, which also was featured in The Lift Box.
"Having spent the past seven years in the food industry, I'm passionate about bringing healthier, tastier and more nutritious foods to the market," Wiltse said. "We built this product line over the past year, while I was undergoing chemotherapy treatment for cancer. I'm proud to say I'm cancer-free, and CandyCan is launching for the world to enjoy!"
The short list of clean ingredients in the CandyCan gummies allows consumers to feel good about what they're putting in their bodies (they're non-GMO, plant-based, gluten-free, low-sugar and high-fiber).
Replacing gelatin with fruit-based pectin for a plant-based solution has created a healthier, yet comparable, alternative to your favorite gummy bears, but without any guilt.
Each single-serving bag of CandyCan bears contains approximately 20 gummies, and only 60 calories, so you never feel like you're deprived or irresponsible.
Also, whether you're about the sweet or the sour, there's a bag of CandyCan gummies with your name on it, as they come in both fruity and sour varieties.
To help celebrate the recent launch of CandyCan and the return of Wiltse and Angacian to The Lift Box, we've decided to do a special bonus giveaway, and one lucky Lift Box subscriber will get to enjoy a whole caddy of FOCUS gummies, a retail value of $50.
The Lift Box is getting into the giveaway game, too, and will be adding to the winner's haul.
Along with the tasty gummies, the winner also will get a complimentary Lift Box in September, a second free Lift Box for a friend and two Lift Box-branded shakers!
Keep an eye on our social media pages for more details about the giveaway, and remember to subscribe to The Lift Box if you haven't already.

"We're excited for the opportunity to work with Ryan and Krik again and proud to be a part of the launch of this awesome new snack," said Adam Lien, co-founder and CEO of The Lift Box. "The gummies are unique, tasty and guilt-free, while providing some terrific benefits. We know the subscribers will enjoy the early Halloween treat, too."
Beyond the delicious snacks, the monthly Lift Box also includes supplements, drinks, accessories and apparel, all for you to try before committing to the cost of full-size products.
Everything that appears in the box has been tested and vetted by the Lift Box staff for taste, quality, comfort and durability.
A monthly subscription to The Lift Box is $39.95. Each box includes a shirt and a variety of items to help make every workout a personal best.
