UNREAL Candy is something new in the stores. I am sure you have seen it and wondered what it really was. It is interesting looking that is for sure. With the colorful packaging and all it really stands out among all the other every day candy you see on the shelves.

Have you ever wondered what was really in the candy that we eat? And not just what we eat, but what we give our children to eat? We all know that it has sugar in it but what about the hydrogenated oils, corn syrup, artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives that aren’t there to make it taste good.  They’re there to make it cheaper to produce.

One kid, Nicky set out to recreate America’s biggest selling candies, without the junk.

THE QUESTION BECAME A MISSION.  UNREALWAS BORN

We’ve just unjunked America’s favorite candy and true to Nicky’s dream, we think it tastes better without the corn syrup, the artificial ingredients, and the partially hydrogenated oils.  Not to mention less sugar.  We even added more cacao, real caramel (not corn syrup dyed to look like caramel), more peanuts, protein, and fiber. All this is the product of the UNREAL™ culture.  We’re building an eclectic mix of people from different walks and experiences.  A Kashi guy.  One from Google.  An interior decorator.  A P&G’er.  A guitarist from Glaceau.  A guy from Mars.  An actual Oompa Loompa.  A dog named Lola.  You’d never find these people together in any other company in the world.  But it works.  Why?  Because we’re drawn together by a common mission.  To challenge what we’ve come to accept in our food and its effect on our health.  To change the way junk food is made here in America and around the world.  To unjunk the world™.

So, we decided to give UNREAL Candy a test against it’s counterparts. Yes, they are very similar to other candy that look the same. There was a noticeable difference of being a little sweeter. But the UNREAL Candy came out as a winner. For the nutritional difference our pick would be UNREAL Candy!

We were able to find the UNREAL Candy at CVS on sale for $0.69! Wow 🙂 You can’t beat that price.

  1. This is what I do by cooking from scratch as much as I can. I would love to try these for my family. Thanks for the giveaway? Are they available all over the country?

  2. My husband is on a new health kick so these would be perfect for us! I have never heard of them before but I'll have to keep my eyes open next time I'm at the store.
