I talk a lot about how unhealthy candy is for our children. I tell anyone who will listen about the ills of GMOs, high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors and flavors and the list goes on. That’s why I was so intrigued by UNREAL Candy. They completely get it.
Their goal is to “unjunk” candy. In fact, that’s their mantra: “Unjunk!”
UNREAL candies contain no artificial flavors, preservatives or hormones; no GMO’s (genetically modified organisms); no hydrogenated oils; and no corn syrup. Instead, they use real sugar, natural oils, and real milk.
They also reduced sugar by over 40% per serving on average. They decided key ingredients needed to be responsibly sourced, supporting farming communities and preventing destruction of the rain forests. Dairy needed to come from grass fed (versus grain fed) cows with no antibiotics or added hormones (LOVE this!).
They had to figure out how to keep the candy fresh on shelves without artificial preservatives. And, to get the taste just right, they tested hundreds of recipes. They also made it a priority to figure out how to make the candy at a cost that was competitive with the regular junk food because their plan is to give you an option at your local convenience store, not to make you hunt for their products at, as they put it, a “fancy health food store.”
I was lucky enough to have some samples sent to me so I could see and taste for myself. It was love at first bite. And, not only was I swept off my feet, my two biggest food critics were sold as well. Not only did we completely enjoy the samples, we headed off to our local CVS to make sure we could satisfy our UNREAL cravings and get some to share with our friends and family. While at the store we convinced at least three other people to try the product… the girls enthusiasm was infectious!
Obviously, I don’t think any candy is “healthy” for you but if you’re going to indulge in a delicious treat, UNREAL Candy is a better choice. They’re an awesome company with a great story and they’re providing a better option then the candy normally found in the candy aisle.
