GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) - I have a confession to make. I love candy! I know I am not the only one.... and most of us like to let our children have candy as a treat now and again right?! However, just like the holiday based around trick or treating, most candy we find on the shelf is all TRICK and definitely NOT a treat for your body or your health. Most candy you find on your supermarket shelves is full of artificial ingredients, chemicals, preservatives, bad fats and oils.
Well all of that is changing thanks to UNREAL candy creators . This company went on a mission to create candy that is not harmful to you and actually has nutritional substance behind it. I would think of it as candy as nature intended.
What's better yet about this candy and its company is that they went beyond the individual human benefits and also took a hard look at the environmental impact of current candy production and made it better. Everything in this candy has been ethically harvested; they know where all of the ingredients came from and stand behind them.
Unreal candy can be found in the store right alongside the old unhealthy versions. The prices are the same but the product is smaller. Why? Well first cutting down on portion sizes is a plus but also because they created this "real" candy to be chewy. The more we chew the more satisfied our brain and stomach are for that "fullness feeling".
My family has all taste tested these products and my daughter brought some to school to share with friends. General consensus was "this is healthy candy?!" It tastes great!
So next time you are having a candy craving - check out UNREAL. Enjoy the candy with no guilt! Here is a cool comparison chart to help you decide.
