Apple cider vinegar (ACV)  has received a lot of attention over the last few years, particularly when it comes to health and weight loss. The problem with ACV is that it tastes awful and, when consumed in large quantities, can be damaging to your insides.

That’s where ACV gummies come into play. Several manufacturers have harnessed the health benefits of ACV and put them inside a tasty little gummy that’s easy to digest and fit into your daily supplement routine.

In this article, I’m going to be comparing two of the best apple cider vinegar gummies on the market right now, Goli and Essential Elements ACV, giving you all the information you need to decide which of these gummy supplements are the right option for your supplement routine.

Analyzing Essential Elements and Goli ACV gummies: What are the key similarities and differences?

At first glance, these two products appear to be very similar, however, there are a couple of things that you should be aware of as you navigate the buying process. 

  1. Goli has less sugar at 1 gram per serving when compared to Essential Element’s 4 grams per serving.
  2. Essential Elements has more ACV per serving with 1000 mg per serving compared to 500 mg for Goli.
  3. Essential Elements contains Iodine, which has been shown to be important for thyroid health as well as cognitive function.
  4. Goli, up until recently, only had one product to offer. They just added their Ashwaganhda gummies to their lineup. Essential Elements has a full line of supplements to choose from, allowing you to potentially get everything you need in one place.

Other than that, these two products are very similar in look, taste, ingredients, and effectiveness/potential health benefits.

My Personal Experience with Both Brands

I have used both Goli and Essential Elements apple cider vinegar gummies. Here are my thoughts on the two products:

Ordering and shipping

For each product, I ordered directly from the brand’s website. When I ordered Goli, the process was simple and I had a coupon code to use, which is always nice. The shipping did take a bit longer than I would have liked, however, they showed great customer service by sending frequent email updates regarding my order. The process to order the Essential Elements ACV formula was very similar, but shipping was much quicker. I think I received my bottle within 3 or 4 days of ordering.


Again, the two products are very similar. Goli’s gummy is a round, red, squishy half circle and Essential Elements is an apple-shaped, red gummy. 


Here’s where you might have a preference. The Goli Gummy has a very sweet, fruity taste that doesn’t taste anything like apple or vinegar, in my opinion. ACV gummies from Essential Elements have a red apple taste, and, although I couldn’t detect any vinegar when I ate them, I did notice a slight vinegar scent when I opened the bottle.

Effectiveness and Results

When taking both supplements, I found that I had increased energy, decreased appetite, and less fatigue. Those were the main results I experienced with both and I didn’t necessarily notice any distinguishing differences in my health when switching from one brand to the next.

Conclusion: Which ACV gummy did I like best? Goli or Essential Elements?

After researching both brands, their formula, and the ingredients of their respective ACV gummies, as well as trying them both for myself, I came to the conclusion that both offer great value and a healthy, delicious way to take ACV each day.

However, when push comes to shove and I’m forced to choose just one, I would pick Essential Elements ACV. Here’s why:

It contains more ACV per serving than Goli, which means I need to consume less per day, making my monthly bottle last for the full month.

I like that it also contains Iodine in addition to the B vitamins as Iodine has been shown to promote thyroid health and cognitive function, and who doesn’t want to feel sharper the older we get?

Lastly, I enjoyed the texture of Essential Elements a little better. Goli’s gummy is very sticky, almost like it was melted or sat in the hot sun for a while. Essential Elements has more of a firm, gel-like texture. That said, I do like the taste of Goli better, but don’t like that it stuck to my teeth.

At the end of the day, the decision comes down to preference! The great news is that you, like me, can try both and find out which one you like best and then go for it.
