Once in a young lifetime one should be allowed to have
as much sweetness as one can possibly want and hold.
I’m not much for sweets on most days, but I’m a firm believer that kids should be allowed to pig out on the sweet stuff a few special days of the year: Easter, Christmas, Halloween and their own birthday.
That being said, I still want what they’re eating to be as harmless as possible. My mother-in-law swears my husband reacts to artificial food coloring, and I’m inclined to agree. I haven’t noticed the same marked effects in my kids, but I presume they’re there.
YummyEarth candies are artificial color and dye free, as well as gluten, nut and dairy free, making them safe options for most kids. They use real fruit juice and fruit extracts for flavor, and each serving is under 70 calories and contains 100% of your daily vitamin C.
But more importantly, they are DELICIOUS.
I’ve bought these before (heads up, the lollipops often go on sale on Amazon), so when YummyEarth sent us some lollipops and sour jelly beans to try and review I hid them until I was ready to take pictures. Otherwise, they would have disappeared like magic 🙂
YummyEarth is the #1 organic candy company in the US, and with good reason. Their flavors include Pomegranate Pucker (Jake’s favorite), Strawberry Smash (my fave), Wet Faced Watermelon (Cassie’s and Mav’s favorite), Blood Orange Cocktail (which I am now obsessed with trying), Chili Mango Mambo and the newest, Perfectly Peach. Candies are available in organic gummy bear, sour worm, candy drops, and Christmas/Halloween/Easter themed varieties in addition to the lollies and beans. Between the variety and the quality, coupled with the certified organic ingredients and the TASTE, they are irresistible.
Jeff devoured the sour jelly beans like they were going out of style. I don’t even like jelly beans and I liked these— just the right amount of pucker before you hit the sweet, and not waxy like traditional jelly beans.
They get the Elton seal of approval from little kids and big kids alike! Perfecto for Easter baskets.
