I tried the Ozia kava candies for a week and shared with my friends and family. I liked the taste very much, it was rooty and flowery [the ginger, chamomile, lemon balm, kava combo w/ the artificial sugars]. The kava was strong enough to have medicinal value, and one of my family members thanked me for a candy that stopped their heart from racing during a panic/anxiety incident. It has been mentioned before and is worth mentioning again here that they are using artificial colors and flavors [yellow #5, sorbitol, ect.] in the kava candy, but it does not entirely ruin the product if you can handle a little of that. Great product! I enjoyed on snowy hikes.
