There’s no denying I have a sweet tooth. I mean, if there’s one thing I can’t live without, it’s a piece of the good stuff.
Sure, I think I deserve at least THIS little luxury on a regular basis. I’m a wife, mom, small business owner, and blogger. What do you think? haha!
Only problem is, traditional candies can be loaded with all kinds of unwanted ingredients— calories, fat, nuts, high fructose corn syrup, dairy and dyes. Things that can do a real number on your body, especially if you have certain allergies.
That’s why when YumEarth contacted me recently and asked me to try their organic lollipops, gummy bears, sour beans and other treats I jumped at the chance. ME turn down candy? No way. hahaa!
I know we’ve all heard these sayings over and over again— “the bigger the better” or “more is better”. Well, when it comes to food, to be honest, less is better. Seriously!
With YumEarth lollipops, gummy bears, sour beans and sour gummy worms, what you see is what you get… candy that’s made using real fruit extracts, and 100% natural flavors. Plus, a whole lot of yummy taste.
Being able to enjoy a sweet snack without feeling guilty afterwards is a huge plus and that’s how you feel after savoring an organic treat from YumEarth. They’re fat-free, gluten-free, and contain no dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors or dyes.
So, which were my favorites? Without a doubt the Organic Vitamin C Pops. They have a slightly tangy fruit flavor and they’re not too sweet. Plus, they provide 100% of your daily vitamin C intake (per pop). The specific bag I received contained strawberry smash, tooberry blueberry, and razzmatazz berry flavors– tooberry being my pick.

The Sour Beans were a close second. If you love “pucker-up” type sour candy, you’ll love these. They’re not extremely potent but come with a little kick. My bag contained 10 individually wrapped packages with a variety of tart flavors. This candy also offers 100% Vitamin C per serving.

Gummy Bears – ahh, who can resists these chewy snacks? I have to say, one year my oldest sister bought me a 5 pound bag of traditional gummy bears for Christmas and although it took me quite a while to empty the bag, I really enjoyed each and every bite. Had I known what were in them, I probably wouldn’t have eaten them all myself.
The YumEarth brand is just as tasty but they’re all natural and much, much healthier for you. Plus, they’re packaged in individual servings so you’re not tempted to eat a large quantity. Not that I couldn’t. hahaa!

YumEarth also offers organic candy drops, gourmet gummy bears, and (starting March 7th)— Fruit Snacks in banana, cherry, peach and strawberry flavors. Yum!
If you’re looking for a better alternative to those chemical laden snacks, I highly recommend YumEarth organic candy. Considering they’re made with real fruit juice, and other planet-friendly natural ingredients, you truly can’t go wrong. Plus, at less than 70 calories, you can feel good about serving them to your family!
