It’s no secret that I have quite the sweet tooth, and while I have been doing great eating healthier lately, I do allow myself some sweet indulgences now and then. But even when I’m indulging, I try my best to pick healthier versions of my favorite treats in order to stay on track. I’m happy to have had the chance to try a new line of all-natural, gluten and GMO-free candies from The Lovely Candy Company, and I’m happy to say that they sold a sweet tooth like me on their treats!
I received four bags of candies from Lovely Candy Company for review. These four flavors represent the first offerings from this new company. They included:
* Original Chewy Caramels
* Chocolate Swirl Caramels
* Fruit Chews (Apple, Cherry, Blackberry)
* Super Fruit Chews (Cranberry, Raspberry, Blueberry)
Being a big caramel fan, I tried the Original Chewy Caramels first. What I like about these chews is that they aren’t sticky like most caramel candies are. They are chewy and delicious. A fantastic caramel treat. The Chocolate Swirl Caramels have the same texture as the original with a pop of chocolate flavor that really stands out. If you like chocolate and you like caramel, this chew is for you. The Fruit Chews and the Super Fruit Chews have a thicker texture that really holds their flavors together. I really like how you can identify the fruit flavors in each chew, and they have a fresh and natural taste. But what I think is really great about these chews is what’s missing from them – they are made without high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. I love that this company is committed to using only the finest ingredients in their line of treats. Combine that with the incredible taste and they’ve got a customer for life in me! Each bag of treats sells for $5.99 on Amazon. In the fall they will be available at better quality grocers and specialty retailers like Hallmark.
The Lovely Candy Company was started by Chicago entrepreneur Mike Nakamura who was on a quest to find the highest-quality candies for his wife Jackie. When he couldn’t find any that fit his high standards, he decided to create his own. In addition to being gluten and GMO free, The Lovely Company candies are also soy free, making the candies a great fit for people with food sensitivities, celiac disease, and those of us just looking for a health-conscious way to indulge.
