Friday Finds - Lovely Candy

With Easter just around the corner I wanted to do a quick post on these wonderful candies. Lovely Candy Company makes the candies pictured and a few other tempting flavors. What is pictured is what I have been able to find locally at Target but they are in many more stores according to their website. I love being able to pick up a bag so conveniently. 

I don't post a lot of products because my family feels better when we keep processed and packaged food to a minimum and eat a whole food based diet. Treats like these are an exception to the rule. Lovely Candy is gluten and GMO free and uses rbst free dairy in their caramels. The fruit chews are vegan. I feel good about the quality and I love each flavor we have tried.

Since they are individually wrapped they would be perfect for putting in plastic eggs for an egg hunt or Easter basket. The individual wrapping also slows me down a wee bit keeping me from inhaling the bag instantly!

As I said, we've all loved every flavor. My sons used to love a certain fruit chew years ago - one we gave up when we went dye free - I had hoped these would be a good replacement. Not really. They are so much better than what we remember those other candies tasting like that it seems wrong to compare them. Both caramels are chewy and creamy and delicious. 

Try them and let me know how you like them. I'd love to hear your all natural and gluten free Easter ideas, too!

It is so nice to have acceptable candy that is easy to find and reasonably priced. My favorite is the plain caramel. Yum!! I'm afraid the wrappers do not slow me down enough. ;)

For another Easter treat we are dipping into our stash of Indie candy. An order of lollipops for special occasions has lasted us this entire school year. The animal shapes are so fun and there are so many stage 1 flavors!

Have a wonderful Easter!

Isn't it great Leah? The chocolate caramel swirls are my current favorite. :-)
