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.
- 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.”
- Maggie: “I thought these were great. The flavor is perfect, they’re fresh, and I feel good about eating them.”
Gummy Bears review:
- 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.”
- 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.

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)!
