I want candy! … Said Aaron Carter… and Nicole Cogan. We all know I have a HUGE sweet tooth, but I direct my sweet tooth towards (dairy-free) chocolate and delicious gluten-free pastries. Well interestingly enough, growing up I hated chocolate and pastries! I was all about candy. That was until I went gluten-free and anything artificial-free 9 years ago; all candy was quickly removed from my diet.
Six months ago I discovered YumEarth. How did it take me so long to find you?! YumEarth is an organic candy line that uses simple flavors, colors and ingredients in their products, and steers clear from artificial ingredients! Almost all of YumEarth products are free from the top-8 allergens (egg, fish, milk, peanuts, shellfish, soy, tree-nuts, wheat). Furthermore, most of the candies are Certified Organic, Non-GMO, Vegan, Kosher Pareve, Nut Free, and of-course, Gluten-Free!!
Wait… isn’t this supposed to be candy?! BELIEVE IT, PEOPLE. YumEarth deletes the connotation that candy is filled with artificial ingredients and straight up bad for you. Rather, they make candy clean, fun, and guilt-free.
YumEarth was founded in 2007 with the introduction of Organic Lollipops. Soon after, gummy bears were born and quickly followed by gummy worms, sour jelly beans, fruit snacks and more. Today, YumEarth boasts a line of ORGANIC lollipops, gummy bears, licorice, fruit snacks, sours, hard candies, and Vitamin C drops.
I loved fruit snacks growing up… I bought them from my school’s vending machine almost every day! And Sour Patch Kids were always my number two. Maybe that’s why I’m addicted to YumEarth’s Organic Sour Twists and Organic Fruit Snacks!
To top it off, YumEarth packaging is just so cute! You can indulge in a larger, re-sealable bag or go for a mini snack pack, which is convenient keep in your purse! And given the brand’s focus on what is in the products we consume, most of their packaging is made in a factory where the equipment is powered by 100% wind-generated electrical energy.
Eating clean is important to me but I also like to treat myself to something sweet, and knowing this candy is a better sweet puts my mind at ease. Check out YumEarth and order your candy, here!
