A Little Time and a Keyboard: Enjoying Real Flavors from UNREAL

Enjoying Real Flavors from UNREAL

Thursday, January 17, 2013

Colored with "beetroot juice, turmeric root extract, purple cabbage juice." Immediately, when you read the ingredients listed for UNREAL Candy, you know that you have stumbled onto something different--excitingly different! Now, we all need to have little indulgences here and there. (Ok, and here, here, and here.) However, we can make choices that are a little better for us than other. UNREAL Candy can make this a little easier for us.

UNREAL Candy was created by a family on a mission to take the junk out of candy and show that candy still tastes great--even better--without the junk. UNREAL Candy has no artificial ingredients, no corn syrup, no partially hydrogenated oils, no preservatives, and no GMOs. (Yes, these are all of the buzz words that health experts are telling you to avoid.) We were given the opportunity try UNREAL Candy and to introduce them to you. Here are our findings:

UNREAL 5 (Chocolate Caramel Nougat)

This bar was unbelievable fresh. It did not taste packaged. The nougat was very fluffy.

Unreal 54 (Chocolate Candy Shell Peanuts)

Once again, fresh flavors. The peanuts tasted fresh and crunchy, not like they had been sitting around. The colors were refreshingly natural--no red dye number whatever here.

UNREAL 41 (Chocolate with a Candy Shell)

The chocolate really comes through on this one. It is not as overwhelmed by sugar as in other candies.

UNREAL 77 (Chocolate Peanut Butter)

Just like the other candy that we sampled, UNREAL 77 is exceptionally fresh. You can actually taste the peanuts in the peanut butter and it is light rather than oily.

UNREAL 8 (Chocolate, Caramel, Peanut, Nougat Bar)

Once again, this bar is very fresh. The nougat is fluffy. The caramel is creamy and lightly buttery.

We loved UNREAL candy and it tasted as great as the pictures look! Also, UNREAL really is better nutritionally than other candy options. If you look at UNREAL's website, you will be able to see nutritional information for each candy. While the candy will have fat and sugar, you will notice that the levels in each is noticeably lower than other candies on the market. I have noticed UNREAL candy popping up everywhere--Target, CVS, Walgreen's, Michael's, Bed Bath & Beyond, and more! If you are curious, definitely get it a try!
