Surf Sweets Organic Candy just in time for Halloween ~ Review and Giveaway

Halloween is fast approaching so candy is definitely on the minds of most kids young and old. My children are fanatical about candy perhaps it was because they had so little of it when they were younger. If my eldest daughter had her dream, candy would be the gift of choice for all occasions and every night should be Halloween! This candy obsession often makes me worry. Not only do I fear the abundance of sugar but all those artificial colours and flavours created using chemicals for which I am afraid to know the side effects! But let's face it, consuming candy is part of the fun of being a kid! How many times have we perused the candy store shelves and told our children, "I remember eating that one when I was a kid"? We actually attach meaning to the candy we enjoyed as children and our children may form similar long-lasting relationships with the candy they remember. Why not create those nostalgic moments with candy that not only tastes fantastic but is healthy?

Surf Sweets are organic and natural inspired by a day at the beach and riding the waves...the waves of natural flavour! My children are definite believers after devouring our test products. Surf Sweets are gummy snacks and jelly beans that appeal to the kid in all of us and the healthy ingredients appeal to every parents' adult side. Surf Sweets are a fabulous source of vitamin C and uses organic fruit juices and sweeteners. Vegan and vegetarian friendly, gluten, casein, corn syrup, GMO, and nut-free you won't find a candy which is better for your children--and you need not feel guilty pilfering one, or two for yourself!

Surf Sweets may be healthy but it certainly is not at the expense of flavour! My children were thrilled by the burst of flavour experienced in each gummy and Surf Sweet creators know the appeal fun shapes like bears and worms have for kids! My family enjoyed the large packs of Sour Worms and Gummy Swirls together at home but I reserved the smaller .9oz snack packs for my children's school lunch kits. The .9oz Sour Berry Bears and Gummy Bears were the perfect size for lunches and because they are organic and nut-free there were no worries! Looking for nut-free products for lunches is sometimes a challenge and as more and more schools promote healthy snacks Surf Sweets allows you to adhere to these guidelines without disappointing their children's spirited taste buds!

My children's favourites? The Sour Berry Bears! And mine? The Gummy Swirls which burst with natural orange flavour! Wondering what your family's favourites will be? One lucky Northern Mama reader will have the opportunity to learn their favourites when he/she wins a fabulous selection of Surf Treats and ride the wave of fresh fruit flavours with his/her family!

  14. Wow, I can find surf sweets at Toys R Us -
    14603 Telegraph Road
    Dale City, VA 22194
    We would try the jelly beans. As we are vegetarian and do not eat products with gelatin. These have no gelatin. Yipeee. Also we have banned high fructose corn syrup from our household. And again Surf Sweets have no high frutose corn syrup in their jelly bean.s
