Unjunk Halloween Candy-UNREAL Candy

With Halloween and Trick-or-Treat right around the corner, I am sure that many of our houses are already full of bite sized goodies that we wouldn’t normally buy.  While we would love to give out healthy foods to our costumed guests, we don’t want to be known as, “that house.”  BUT, I have found healthier and just-as tasty versions of our favorite chocolate candies!  The people of UNREAL bring us “Candy Unjunked,” a company that makes candy from organic and natural ingredients, and is all about reinventing the typical candy.

UNREAL does NOT contain:

-Corn Syrup

-Hydrogenated Oil

-Artificial flavors

-GMO’s (Genetically modified organism)

-Synthetic Colors

UNREAL does contain responsibly sourced ingredients, including:

-Traceable cacao beans from Ghana and Ecuador

-100% sustainable and organic Palm Kernel Oil sourced from a sustainable and organic plantation in Brazil

-Dairy from free-range cows pasture raised without antibiotics or added hormones

-All natural origin colors, coming from plants like beets, red cabbage, etc.

-30% less sugar, 60% more protein and 250% more fiber per serving on average compared to the leading competing brands

UNREAL products include UNREAL 41:  Candy Coated Chocolates, UNREAL 54:  Candy Coated Chocolates with Peanuts, UNREAL 5:  Chocolate Caramel Nougat Bar, UNREAL 8:  Chocolate Caramel Peanut Nougat Bar, and UNREAL 77:  Peanut Butter Cups.

As you can see from ALL of the comparison charts, UNREAL is lower in calories, sugars, carbs, and higher in fiber and protein.  Trust me, you will not be able to tell a difference between the UNREAL brand and the brands compared above.  But, probably the best part of UNREAL is that won’t feel bad after enjoying a few bites of chocolate!  I typically prefer M&Ms or Reese’s PB Cups, but with UNREAL’s choices, I can’t decide which is my favorite.  Guess I will just have to do another taste test!

Even celebrities such as Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen, Jason Bourne–or Matt Damon in real life, Dr. Mark Hyman, Jack Dorsey (creator of Twitter), and John Legend are behind the “Candy Unjunked” movement.  Watch THIS video to see these celebrities thoughts about UNREAL as well as a behind the scenes look at UNREAL’s candy making process.
