Halloween with YumEarth

Growing up, I LIVED for Halloween. In fact, I often think about how sad I would have been every Halloween if I knew about all of my current food intolerances; I would have had to give away the majority of my candy!!

Thankfully, companies like YumEarth have recognized that candy is the first to go for those with food allergies and intolerances, and have created a product that solves this problem. As a little refresher, 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, Nut Free, and of-course, Gluten-Free!! I don’t think people realize how IMPORTANT it is that companies like YumEarth exist!

I’m pretty much obsessed with the YumEarth sour twists, and it’s been my intention since discovering the brand to serve all of their candies at Halloween, so you can imagine my excitement when I saw that for a limited time, Gummy jack-o-lanterns and bats and Organic Candy Corn are back on sale at YumEarth for the holiday! Candy Corn at Halloween is like Candy Canes at Christmas and Chocolate on Valentine’s Day… A.K.A. a total must have. To see an allergy-friendly version has literally made my year. Oh and the taste? DELICIOUS! Seriously even better than I remember.

I bought the Halloween Variety Pack for this year’s Halloween (assortment of pops, gummy bats, and gummy jackolantern snack packs), and while I was at it, I picked up a few bags for my friends and a couple of extra to keep in my cabinets for after the holiday. The only thing that makes me happier than this limited edition Halloween line existing is the fact that at my local Whole Foods, the YumEarth Halloween display is smack in the middle of the store (right by the registers) and right in the midst of all of the commotion! No wonder why the Halloween line is selling out everywhere so quickly!! Halloween is meant to be enjoyed by everyone, even the food-intolerant. Thank you YumEarth for keeping the Halloween spirit alive… and delicious! Go out and get your goodies quick!!

YumEarth Organic Candy

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!
