In my family, stocking are usually stuffed with things like small toys and games, holiday-themed chocolates, and, of course, candy. I obviously don’t want my kids to gorge themselves on chocolate and candy, but the holidays just doesn’t seem like the time to set eating boundaries. If only I could find stocking stuffers that are yummy candy but also reasonably healthy. Well, guess what! They DO exist!
YumEarth is the #1 organic candy company in the US, and their holiday treats are made with real fruit extracts and planet friendly ingredients grown on sustainable family farms. I’ve been curious to try YumEarth products for some time now, so I was really pleased when YumEarth sent over a Family Size bag of their Gummy Bears for the kids (and me) to try out. And they’re a complete hit! (In fact, I’m going to have to buy more for stocking stuffers because I’m going to eat the rest of the bag they sent long before Christmas gets here!)
These gummy bears are certified organic, gluten free, fat-free, dairy-free, peanut-free, tree nut-free, and soy-free with no artificial colors or high-fructose corn syrup. What they do have is real fruit extracts and 100% natural flavors. The Family Size bag (7 oz.) contains 10 packs of gummy bears inside – each pack is less than 70 calories and provides 100% of daily vitamin C!
I didn’t bother mentioning to my kids that these are “organic” gummy bears, just “Here, have some gummy bears.” And the gummy bears were promptly devoured. They look, feel, and taste just like the gummy bears you’ve eaten in the past, but these ones are so much better for you (and for the planet!) And actually, that’s not quite true – I’d argue that these ones taste better than a lot of other brands. These aren’t your typical flavors of gummy bears, like lemon and orange. YumEarth Organics Gummy Bears contain four unique flavors per pack: Pomegranate Pucker, Strawberry Smash, Mango Tango and new Perfectly Peach.. My personal favorite is the Pomegranate Pucker – oh my gosh, so good! And I don’t even like super sour candy, but these are the perfect balance between sweet and sour. And the other three flavors are amazingly delectable as well – these aren’t bland or rubbery tasting at all (as I’ve found some brand of gummy bears to be). They’re really juicy tasting, and smell amazing too.
A Family Size bag of YumEarth Organics Gummy Bears sells on the YumEarth website for $7.99 (that’s 10 packs for a total of 7 ounces of gummy goodness). And they have a lot of other amazing products and flavors as well – products like Organic Pops, Vitamin C Pops, Fruit Snacks, Sour Beans, Freshest Fruit Drops, Gummy Worms, Refresh Mints, Lemon Drops, and even Hot Chili Pops! Sizes go from personal size bags all the way up to bulk purchases, and YumEarth offers free shipping on orders of $39+. You can also find YumEarth on Amazon. You can also find YumEarth on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and YouTube.
