UNREAL - Unjunk Your Sweet Tooth

         Candy is my nemesis. From the time I was a little girl, my dad would pick me up for his weekend.  We would stop at the local convenience store on the corner.  He would ask the cashier for a bag.  I would then fill that bag to the brim with every kind of candy under the sun.  We would then go to my dad's and proceed to chow down on as much candy as I wanted. Granted this resulted in my belly being stuffed to the brim and an outrageous sugar high. That was the beginning of my love for candy.

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! It's centered around giving and receiving candy! Once I started looking for healthy options... I knew I was in trouble.  These past few years, I have resigned to the fact when I want candy to satisfy my sweet tooth.  I'm basically out of luck!  Sure you can grab organic chocolate or an organic chocolate bar but what do you do when you want a little bit more? Imagine my surprise to recently discover UNREAL candy!

What makes this candy UNREAL?
  • contains no corn syrup
  • contains no hydrogenated oil
  • contains no artificial flavors
  • contains no GMO's
  • contains no synthetic colors

UNREAL 54 & UNREAL 41 are candy coated chocolates. UNREAL contains peanuts. I enjoyed the crunchy coating and the smooth chocolate center.  When you eat UNREAL candy you will notice a deeper dark coloring. This is because all coloring comes from natural sources like beets and red cabbage instead of artificial dyes. Removing artificial dyes from my families diet is very important to me. These artificial dyes have been linked to a slew of health and behavioral problems.

UNREAL 5 & UNREAL 8 are caramel nougat bars. If you prefer peanuts in yours then you will love UNREAL 8! UNREAL 77 is decadent peanut butter cups.  The chocolate is smooth while the peanut butter is thick in texture. Rich sweet goodness.... It's UNREAL  My family loves these new options for healthy snacking.  I also love all of the dairy products used to make UNREAL candy comes from cows raised without antibiotics or added hormones.  UNREAL candy is proof to me you can still have a great tasting product made with only whole healthy foods instead of junk!

Available at CVS, Walgreens, and other local retailers. You can choose from single size candy bars and  family size bags. I plan to purchase a few family sized bags to pass out to our visitors for Halloween.

What is your absolute favorite candy? Which variety UNREAL candy do you think you would like most?

I received a sample to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.
