Review: Surf Sweets

I had a wonderful thing happen to me the other day- a package of candy showed up on my doorstep! I don't remember anything else about that day- I'm sure I cooked and did laundry and broke up endless toddler/preschooler fights. But I did not care, because someone sent me candy. Life was all good that day.

The nice people who sent candy my way were from Surf Sweets, and I was thrilled to learn about their candy, since it's different from most other brands that we have eaten in the past. Surf Sweets are made with organic fruit juice and sweeteners, natural colors and flavors, are made without corn syrup are gluten-free, dairy-free, casein-free and made in a facility that is free of the ten most common allergens. 

Oh, and the candy is really yummy. I did not share any with my husband or kids, that's how much I liked it.  All for me! You can get a variety of types of candy from Surf Sweets, including gummy worms, gummy swirls, gummy bears, fruity bears, jelly beans, sour worms, and sour berry bears. My personal favorite were the jelly beans, but I thoroughly enjoyed everything that I tried.  If you'd like to try out these delicious candies for yourself (or if you're a better person than I am and want to buy some to share with your family), they can be found at natural and specialty food retailers, including at Whole Foods.

Disclosure: I was sent candy to review for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.
