I recently had the opportunity to try, and review Unjunked candy. Perhaps you're wondering what this is. It's candy that is just as good in taste quality and quantity as your typical mainstream candy bars, but there are no dyes, preservatives, and it contains only real sugar.
Upon agreeing to do a product review, I typically do a lot of my own research on top of trying and using the products (which I, of course, did this as well). Before sharing some of the things that I learned, let me tell you my own personal reaction of this product!
All of the candy was delicious. It has officially received the approval of The Mom Show, Husband of The Mom Show, and Child of The Mom Show. I am sure that when I purchase this product again for Halloween in a few days (which you can do also, at stores like Staples, CVS, Krogers, Ralphs, Michaels and many more!) I am sure this product will gain the approval of my trick or treaters, and their parents both!
Part of what I was looking for when doing my research, was how they could have possibly made chocolate candies with the brightly colored candy coating (you all know what kind of candy I'm talking about here,) without using ANY dyes? I found out that they used beets for their red and purple colors, cabbage created their blue and green colors, turmeric root was used for yellow, and cabbage and turmeric root were combined to create their green color. (The colors aren't quite as bright and vibrant, but they tasted just as good as the mainstream candies that you can buy! In these there was very little difference in taste!).
I always hesitate on things like this. I'm definitely not as health conscious as I know I really should be when it comes to the foods that I'm feeding my family and myself. As a result, I'm used to what I like, and sometimes I find it difficult to like other things. I had a feeling that I wasn't going to like this candy for that reason, but I was SO wrong. It is really delicious. Other candies they offer are peanut butter cups, chocolate caramel peanut nougat, chocolate caramel nougat, candy coated chocolate, and candy coated chocolate with peanuts. My favorite was the Chocolate Caramel Nougat. My husband's favorite was the Peanut Butter Cups, and my daughter REALLY loved the candy coated chocolate!
I also want to point out, that, while I was reading up on the product, I spent a pretty good amount of time having fun on their website! I would definitely check that out!
