I can't believe it's already October, can you? This year has just been flying by! My kids are very excited about the falling leaves, cooler weather, and all of the spooky displays we're seeing in stores around town. Of course they know that Halloween is coming soon, and this just happens to be one of their favorite holidays. I mean, can you really blame them? Who doesn't look forward to dressing up in creepy (or cute) costumes and getting bags and bags of candy?
Of course being the "Junk Food Nazi", I try and make Halloween as wholesome as possible. I try and avoid snacks and treats that are full of processed, mystery ingredients whenever possible. Just because a child may want to be a Mad Scientist for Halloween doesn't mean they should be experimented on themselves, with all the chemicals and GMO's found in many of the Halloween treats found in stores.
Thankfully, there's a better option available for Halloween. YumEarth offers a wide variety of natural and organic candies that are perfect for your little ghouls and boys this Halloween! All of YumEarth's products are free of high fructose corn syrup and artificial dyes.
YumEarth tastes better because they choose real fruit extracts and planet friendly ingredients grown on sustainable family farms to sweeten their lives and yours...and because they love spectacular flavor and hand craft all of YumEarth's flavors to make them all tart and bright and delicious!
We received a nice assortment of products to check out for ourselves. Included were their delicious Organic Pops, their Sour Beans, also known as "The Jelly Bean with Attitude", Gummy Worms, and Fruit Snacks!
My kids absolutely loved all of these treats, but there were a couple of definite favorites. The Fruit Snacks were a huge hit in our home. Sophie and Xander loved them! These fruit snacks are bright, colorful, and fun, and they are bursting with natural fruit flavors. These would make great additions to any Trick-Or-Treat bag, or can even be enjoyed as part of a healthy lunch or snack!
Now I have to admit, my kids seem to LOVE things that are sour. I think this may be some odd, childhood phenomena. It seems that most kids I meet go nuts for sour candies! When I was a child, I too, loved anything that made my face pucker up and my mouth water. Now as an adult...Well...Not so much. I guess our taste buds change as we get older.
Anyway, my children absolutely adored the YumEarth Sour Beans. These jelly beans look pretty unassuming, but they pack a sour, fruity punch! These have Pomegranate centers surrounded by sour fruit flavors. And BOY, they ARE sour! A bit too tart for my own tastes, but my kids were absolutely delighted by these treats!
And of course, we all loved the YumEarth Organic Pops. These lollipops come in some great fruit flavors, and are made entirely of organic ingredients. These will actually be going with us to a riverfront Halloween party, and I will be passing them out to families to introduce them to this delicious, organic alternative to traditional sweets!
Overall, we're definitely pleased with our YumEarth experience. All of the products we sampled were a huge hit with the kids. And as a choosy mom, I can finally allow my little ones to enjoy sweet treats without having to worry about what other creepy ingredients might be hiding within.
