A Less Guilty Sweet Tooth

I’ve always had a sweet tooth. Probably always will. And while I don’t plan on giving it up, the HFCS, chemicals and other junk that are in today’s candy do take away from the fun. So it was refreshing to hear about Unreal Candy , who aims to replace our beloved M&M’s, Milky Ways, Snickers’, and even Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups with more healthful, natural, and sustainably produced alternatives. They have removed the nasty corn syrup, partially hydrogenated oils, GMOs, and artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives of their brand-name counterparts while reducing the sugar content by an average of over 40%.

Love that they’re using beets and cabbage to dye the candy, and reviews say that the treats are actually tasty! Look for it at a store near you soon. Somehow, they’ve managed to keep the prices at the same level as their big corporate brethren.
