This weekend I had the pleasure of hosting an UNREAL Candy party during our families annual Halloween Camping Trip! UNREAL™ exists because a thirteen year old boy asked one Halloween why candy needs to be so unhealthy. After an argument with his father, he did a bit of research only to find that candy is filled with bad things like hydrogenated oils and artificial colors and flavors. And what’s worse, he found out that those ingredients don’t make candy taste better, they simply make it cheaper to produce.
Nicky believed that candy without the junk could be made and that it would taste better. And he and his father and brother decided to prove it. AND THEY DID!
UNREAL™ provides many of the great flavor combinations we love in our treats, but without the corn syrup, without the partially hydrogenated oils, without the GMOs, without the artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives, and with 40% less sugar per serving on average. The key ingredients are responsibly sourced, and the candy is available in the stores we all shop, at a price point we can all afford.
Currently there are 5 different varieties of candy available - Chocolate Candy Shell, Chocolate Peanut Candy Shell, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Chocolate Carmel Nougat, and Chocolate Carmel Peanut Nougat.
There were 27 people at our event from age 2 to age 68 and they all agreed that UNREAL tasted great! Parents felt great about it being an alternative to mainstream candies and older folks commented that it tasted how candy USED to taste when they were a kid! The chocolate tastes like real cocoa chocolate...not processed and oil based! Here's an inside look at their peanut butter cups!
With no artificial dyes and coloring, the colors look a little different, but my husband says they were just as tasty!
Here's everyone picking out what different treats to sample! Over all UNREAL Candy was a hit! Several people mentioned they would actually buy this over other name brand candy and wanted to know where to find it (CVS, Walgreens, grocery stores with the regular candy)!
