As Americans, we love candy. Whether it’s the “guess my filling” concoctions on Valentine’s Day or a basic box of Milk Duds at the movies, we eat this stuff up. Unfortunately, these goodies are filled with a ton of not-so-good ingredients (Red 40 doesn’t grow on trees folks). Thankfully, a new line of sweet treats is about to take care of that problem.
Unreal, a new line of all-natural candy, will soon make its way to the shelves of CVS, Target, and other stores. This creation comes from Nicky Bronner, a 15-year-old who realized a need for healthier candy after his parent took away his Halloween stash. With the help of his father Michael Bronner and natural food chef Adam Melonas, Nicky created five “better for you” versions of today’s top sellers, such as M&Ms, Skittles, Reese Cups, Milky Ways, and Snickers.
Unlike brand name bars, Unreal does not use hydrogenated oil, corn syrup, or artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. On average, Unreal products contain 45 percent less sugar, 13 percent less fat, and 23 percent fewer calories, than industry leading brands, on average per unit.
Good for you? No. Better for you? Absolutely.
I know I’ll give these treats a try. Will you?
