Review: YummyEarth! & Discount

YummyEarth was kind enough to send me samples of their organic gummy bears and their organic vitamin C lollipops just in time for Halloween. (They’re also hosting a giveaway over at HealthyYum!) All of their candies are Gluten Free, Egg-free, Dairy-free, Peanut-free, Tree Nut free, high fructose corn syrup-free, Wheat-free, Soy-free, NO MSG, 100% Natural Colors, No chemical dyes, Real Fruit Extracts, 100% Natural Flavors, Certified Organic, and Kosher Parve.

The gummy bears are fat-free and they are made with real fruit juice. They have 100% of your vitamin C. The flavors are pomegranate pucker, strawberry smash, and sour apple tart. The vitamin C pops come in strawberry smash, tooberry blueberry, and razzmatazz berry. Bobby and I tried both products, and here is what we thought. Bobby’s reviews are amusing.

Pops review:

  1. Bobby: “These are amazing lollipops even if you don’t care about organic stuff. They remind me of the doctor’s office, which sounds bad, but the doctor’s office had great lollipops. They’re the perfect size; they’re not huge, and they don’t have gunk in the center.”
  2. Maggie: “I thought these were great. The flavor is perfect, they’re fresh, and I feel good about eating them.”

Gummy Bears review:

  1. Bobby: “These gummy bears are a little bit softer than the ones I’m used to (Haribo). But they’re still good! I liked the flavors a lot. They weren’t too sweet, which I liked.”
  2. Maggie: “I normally dislike gummy bears because they are way too chewy… these had a nice amount of chew. I love that they didn’t get stuck in my teeth and I enjoyed the (not too sweet) flavor.”

If you don’t believe us, YummyEarth wants you to try their goodies for yourself.

YummyEarth is offering a 20% discount off for orders of $25 or more thru November 15th for Say Yes to Salad readers – just enter the code “healthyyum” at the checkout!

I will be ordering these guys for Halloween treats. YummyEarth also sent us 2 of their mini bags of gummy bears (good for treats, or if you lack self control like I do) but we ate them before I got a picture.

What’s your favorite candy? When I was younger I loved those frozen Snickers bars… someone should come up with a healthier version of that.

Happy news – my dad is visiting next Thursday (the 22nd)!

    My favorite candy was always Peanut Butter M&M’s and/or Reese’s Pieces 🙂

    I love the organic lollipops ! I bought a huge bag this summer. They taste so fresh and authentic–not chemically or artificial like other hard candy. The fruit flavors are so “real” tasting 😀

    Crazy, but I did not like chocolate growing up. However, I loved gummy bears and Twizzlers, and so I know I would LOVE the YummyEarth stuff. Then one day, I discovered Snickers, and the love affair with chocolate began.

    Two things:
    1. I now love putting my oat bran in the freezer before eating it.
    2. At this very moment, I am cooking a kabocha squash whole in the oven at a very low temp. One of my readers told me to try it. I’m supposed to cook it until my whole house smells amazing. I’ll let you know how it goes.

    I’m not a candy person at all (chocolate excluded, of course) but I think it’s great there’s a healthy alternative to sugar-laden candy options! When I was little and Halloween rolled around, for some reason I always loved Nerds, Baby Ruths and those little boxes of Milk Duds.

    Who am I kidding…I still love the mini anything chocolates, especially the Milk Duds 🙂

    Those looks so good! I’m not really a candy person, but I love gummy bears! I’m actually the opposite of Bobby; I won’t eat Haribo because they are too hard for me (TWSS). I like my gummies squishy!

    I hated chocolate growing up, and I still am not too big of a fan of it – I like dark chocolate, but not the sickeningly sweet milk chocolate.

    I loveee sprees, though they’re hard to find, gummy bears, and other fruity non-chocolate flavors!

    Pretty much the only candy I liked as a kid were gummy bears… (I hate, yes hated, chocolate – but then I discovered dark chocolate with almond butter… Sooo good!). The gummy bears sound great as an occasional treat.

    Love candy! I was a total Reese’s addict as a kid and now I munch on dark chocolate.

    Yummy Earth Lollipops are indeed delicious. Snikers and M&M’s are still my weaknesses.

    Organic gummy bears ? That’s TWO good reasons to pass up 🙂
