Did anyone else notice that this year there was a big push to fill Easter baskets with non-candy items? Not a bad idea for families who are trying to live a life with a bit less sugar in it. And if you are a toy company, it was a GENIUS idea.
But I just couldn’t commit to doing a candy-free Easter basket. The thought of it got me downright sad. So here’s what I did, instead:
Yes, that basket is LOADED DOWN with delicious treats, but they were all from YumEarth, a company that offers natural candy products without all the junk included. Here’s a list of some of the key things you may be watching out for and whether or not they are included in YumEarth products.
The organic gummy bears were a huge hit with Darah, as gummy bears are one of her favorite special treats. And everyone in the house really loved the sour jelly beans which really packed some serious flavor! I really like that both of these options come in 10 pack bags that are perfect for lunches. Darah will be attending a day long program 2 times each week over the summer, and will need to pack a lunch. These will make for the perfect end to her meals!
But perhaps the greatest find of all is the organic lollipops. On Amazon right now, you can get a bag which has over 40 lollipops in it for just $6.00. They taste fantastic, too!
So while we didn’t take the candy-free route this Easter, we did find some products that were much better for us than the stuff we might otherwise have purchased. And we’ll be buying them again once we run out!
Have you ever tried YumEarth candy products? What did you think about them?
