User Review: Spicy Apple Gin Gins

The Ginger People is a family owned and operated business with a passion for ginger. They strongly believe in the healing properties of ginger, one of nature’s most powerful herbal remedies.

Ginger is great to assist with nausea, headaches and arthritis as well as helping to restore energy and stimulate circulation. It also has a versatile flavour that can be used in a multitude of ways in everyday life.

I love ginger in my cooking, when used moderately. I love the subtle flavour in a chicken dish or a marinade, and I love ginger snap biscuits. which were a lifesaver in my early pregnancies. I am a little more cautious when it comes to strong ginger flavours but the more I think about these Gin Gin candies the more intrigued I become. The Gin Gins candies come in a range of flavours which would appeal to many different people I think and now I may just need to keep an eye out for them.

  1. I have been lucky enough to trial these delicious little treats, and I must say that I often suffer with tummy upsets. I am so thrilled that there is something so tasty and pleasant to chew and suck on that actually helps my tummy upsets. I have only recently jumped on the ginger band wagon, and although I don’t dislike the taste, it can be a little strong and overwhelming.
    The Ginger People have done a fantastic job of creating something that tastes wonderful, helps with upset tummys and indigestion, and leaves you feeling like you have done something good for your body.
    Spicy Apple Gin Gins are a chewy, apple flavoured ginger candy that are not too strong or overpowering.

  2. I absolutely loved my Spicy Apple Gin Gins.
    I had bought a product some time ago that resembled these in the way that they look and have been looking for a replacement for my elderly Mum who absolutely loves ginger in any way shape or form.
    So this was sort of a 2 person trial .
    Needles to say the Spicy Apple Gin Gins passed with flying colours.
    They come in an good sized bag and are all individually wrapped which I personally really like as you can just have one or two and not feel like the rest are going to go sticky or to waste.
    I found the Spicy Apple flavour to be subtle but lovely and the ginger itself was for us certainly not overwhelming. Nice and chewy and they last a good time .
    I will definitely be rebuying this product for my Mum especially as she really enjoyed this type of ginger .
    I would highly recommend Spicy Apple Gin Gins by The Ginger People and thank both them and Beauty and Lace for giving us the chance to try and review this great product.

  3. I love the taste of ginger and just like many others I do find that it is calming on the stomach. I tend to suffer badly with an upset stomach when I take long haul travel or im over tired so the thought of a candy that contained ginger and could help to calm my stomach was very enticing.
    My pack of Gin-Gins arrived and I had to try one straight away. This pack was the Spicy Apple Gin-Gins and they pack a powerful punch of ginger which I loved and the spicy apple was lovely but the overwhelming taste is the ginger. Each Gin-Gin is wrapped in its own plastic wrap and I must admit I found them very hard to break into and many times I gave up and used scissors which would be a bit of an issue if I was on a plane….might have to chop open a few ends before boarding. The Gin-Gins are as they claim “chewy”. So much so that I had to spend some time afterwards removing bits from my teeth so I would be a little wary if you are someone that has false teeth as I dont think they would work to well for you. The taste is amazing and im really madly in love with these ginger treats and will certainly have to purchase some for the next time I travel. There is no way i could keep some in the house as they are so wonderful that I know I would consume them.
    If you love ginger then you simply must give Gin-Gins a try. Im sold

  4. I was lucky enough to be sent one of these packs to trial – I have to admit that I thought they would be a healthy treat instead of eating lollies (due to all natural ingredients) however they contain way too much sugar (5gm per two pieces) for my liking. I have recently been trying to cut back on my sugar intake and feel that this is way too much. As I am normally not a fan of ginger in sweets I was surprised to find these rather pleasant – taste-wise. However I think they were a little too spicy for my liking. I do like my spice but not this much in a sweet. I gave some to my boss who loved them and asked for more during the day. She is a big fan of ginger and found them ‘warming’ after a few minutes as the packet claims. I found them abit too chewy and as another reviewer stated, I also had to pick it out of my teeth after chewing…. I was also under the impression that they would be Australian made and was surprised to find they are made in Indonesia. I would prefer to support Australian-made products. All in all I dont think I will buy them unless I suddenly come down with a nausea-related illness and may trial them again. Thank you so much to beauty and lace for choosing me. I absolutely love you guys!!!!

  5. Really surprised at just how much I loved these sweets!! I to tend to get travel sickness so these are going to be really handy! Love that they are chewy and last a long time. The flavour is intense but not overpowering at all. Love the complex mix of spicy apple and ginger!Its perfect that they are individually wrapped so they can be stored easily in my purse and in the car as well. However the packaging is really hard to open and I had to struggle a fair bit to open them.. Apart from that a great tasting ginger lolly and will be looking out for it in my shopping trip this weekend not just for myself but for my friends as well.

  6. I’m a huge fan of ginger but unfortunately the over-whelming taste of cinnamon left me under-whelmed with these sweets. Yes, its a personal taste but for me the only ginger “flavour” was that lovely burning sensation after chewing on the Gin-Gins for a few minutes.
    As a personal preference I would much prefer a more ginger flavour and less of the cinnamon.
    I also found them difficult to remove from their wrappers and I’m wondering how well they’d cope with warmer temperatures… do they get stickier and harder to remove in summer?
    I’m sure they would be great for settling upset tummies and even for an aide in travel sickness but for me, as is, they are not a ginger sweet I would chose to purchase.
    Thanks for the opportunity to review.

  7. I really enjoyed the flavour of these candies. I am a great fan of anything with ginger so my expectations were that if it tastes like ginger then I will love it.
    These had an extra spicy apple taste to it combined with Ginger. The flavour of these candies reminded me of Christmas fruit pies.
    These candies are really chewy and sometimes they stuck to my tooth. But I really enjoyed chewing them, they are not really hard to chew though. The chewiness factor is right in the middle not too tough and not too soft perfect as my liking.
    I am glad that these are not too sweet because I dislike overly sweet candies. Also really love the fact that these contain Cane sugar and not the overly processed white sugar. I guess cane sugar is the healthier version.
    If you are watching your weight then these are the perfect treats which will not add too much calories to your daily consumption. Each lollies only contain 20 calories which is great.
    I gave some to my kids to try but unfortunately they did not like them . So I guess this is an acquired taste.
    If you love the taste of ginger and love the taste of spicy apples then you will love these candies. They are delicious.

  8. These ginger chews were absolutely delicious! I love ginger flavoured foods and lollies and these certainly impressed me.

    I really enjoyed the spicy apple and cinamon flavour. They made the chews so much more enjoyable. I didn’t find them overly spicy at all. It was just right.

    They had the perfect amount of chew but I did find them getting stuck it my teeth.

    I do suffer from car sickness so these ginger chews would be great to test out on long trips.

    I have found a stockist online that sell this flavour in particular so I will definitely be repurchasing.

    Thank you The Ginger People and Beauty & Lace!

  9. My name is Kerryn and I am addicted to everything Ginger!

    Enter then exhibit A – Spicy Apple Gin Gins

    These are a guilty pleasure and what I think should come with a warning – dangerous amounts of consumption ahead! Once you start you cannot stop.

    Think of the best tasting apple pie that you have ever had – now ramp it up 1000% and that’s pretty much what you have with these delectable morsels. You get the peppery pop of ginger, cinnamon and allspice with the refreshing sweetness of delicious apples. Delightfully spicy, chewy and full flavoured – all around just yum!

    I read this somewhere and tried it and to my absolute surprise, it was amazing – drop a couple in a cup of boiling water, let them melt and enjoy a deliciously spiced cup of Spicy Apple Ginger Cider. Yum!

    The added kicker in these for those that are wondering is that they are All Natural. Gluten Free. Vegan. Non-GMO.

  10. Thanks to Beauty and Lace for including me in this interesting product trial!

    Overall I really enjoyed these ginger chews as an alternative to overly sweet lollies. I’m currently pregnant, and although my first trimester nausea has mostly worn off, I do sometimes still get nauseous, particularly with travel on public transport (which I use frequently). These chews were fantastic to keep me alert on the road (the flavor is very zingy!) and for relieving nausea.

    I love ginger, and these lollies do contain a lot of heat, so be prepared for that. But the combination of sweet juicy apple helps to mellow out the heat of the ginger. The wrapper is a little tricky to remove because the lollies are so sticky (especially trying to unwrap one-handed while driving!), and they are VERY chewy and give the teeth a bit of a work out.

    I would purchase these again as an alternative to the pregnancy-safe ginger travel calm tablets, which I did not find particularly effect at keeping travel-related nausea at bay. These chews have the benefit of giving an instant ginger hit at a high concentration.

    Thanks B&L!
