Well, my friends, it was only a matter of time. The juice cleanse craze has taken over our beloved candy.

Luxury candy company Sugarfina has partnered with Pressed Juicery to create gummy bears made from the magical elixir known as "green juice."

The gummies are made from a blend of spinach, apple, lemon, and ginger concentrate. They get their coloring from spirulina and tumeric, are fat and gluten free, and are packed with Vitamins A and C.

According to Delish, The idea stemmed from Sugarfina's April Fool's Day prank last year. The company jokingly announced that it would start selling green juice customers. They were surprised to find that customers were actually super bummed that it was just a prank.

Juicy news: we have a new product launching tomorrow 😉🍬 #SneakPeek

"We loved the idea of gummy bears inspired by the juice trend, but we had no idea it would be so in demand," Sugarfina co-founders Rosie O'Neill and Josh Resnick told Delish. "We called up our L.A. neighbor Pressed Juicery and had a ton of fun collaborating with them on the recipe."

Pressed Juicery CEO Hayden Slater told Delish they were on board with the idea because, "We're serious about what we do, but we don't take ourselves too seriously." (They're not a regular juice shop. They're a cool juice shop.)

For those who really want to get the full juicing experience with their candy, Sugarfina is offering a 7-day gummy bear cleanse for $23.
