The Unreal Candy!
What happens when a teenager sets out to recreate his favorite candies, just with less sugar, so he’s allowed to eat them? The Unreal Candy line! The Unreal mission is to make junk food differently “with better ingredients, without the junk, with great taste, and at the same price.”
Despite many naysayers, Nicky (the aforementioned teenager) and his family finally found a team of top European scientists and chefs, willing to help them unjunk “junk food.” Together, they took our favorite M&M’s, Peanut Butter Cups, Snickers, and Milky Way, and reduced their sugar content by 40% per serving. Plus, they eliminated artificial coloring and flavors, hydrogenated oils, artificial preservatives, corn syrup, and GMO’s. And, in their place, they used real cane sugar, up to twice as much cacao, real milk (without artificial hormones), and more protein and fiber.
Unreal Chocolate Candy Shell Peanuts
At first, I was a little wary about how the candy would taste – after all, I’m sure most of you have tried those “healthy” candy bars that are similar to chewing on a handful of vitamins! But, surprisingly, the Unreal Candy is amazingly similar to their famous counterparts!
Last weekend, Unreal Candy sent me their entire line of chocolate candy to sample and share with fellow moms. Despite the blustery weather that Hurricane Sandy sent our way, we had over 15+ ladies give their opinions on Unreal! Here are a few of the comments we heard:
“This chocolate tastes really delicious!”
“I love the fall colors of these candies.”
“I like that it’s made from real ingredients and is safe for my kids to eat.”
“I dislike that the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups have such crumbly peanut butter, and Unreal did an amazing job of developing a peanut butter cup that is smooth and decadent.”
“Unreal made sophisticated peanut butter cups. Very good!”
“The Unreal Chocolate Shell Peanuts taste as good as my favorite peanut M&Ms. And, other than the fact that they are not brightly colored, you really can’t tell a difference.”
“I love their color palette. Sophisticated. Smart move to be very visually different.”
“I like the fact that the Unreal Chocolate Caramel Nougat is not so sweet. I love Snickers but think it’s too sweet. I think I would actually prefer this one to the original.”
The Unreal candies were a huge hit; and, all the moms thought they were a great substitute for the sugary candies that overwhelm us, especially during the holiday season. And, now, they are in stores across the nation – you can visit their website to find a distributor near you. Some of the stores in the DC area that carry them are Target, BJ’s, Michaels, CVS, and Staples!
