I have a “sweet tooth.” Thankfully it’s not an every day thing, but there are times that I am totally craving something sweet. I think we all experience days like that.
I like to keep small candies (bit size and individually wrapped) on hand at all times. I keep most of them at home but I do have some stashed in my car just in case I am craving something when I am driving or at work.
I am always on the look out for a new favorite. I think I may have found that in a brand called GoOrganic Candy.
GoOrganic Candy, as you can probably guess, it 100% organic. In addition the candy is non-GMO, gluten-free, allergen-friendly* and kosher. The candy is also does not contain trans fats, preservatives, corn syrup, FD&C colors or hydrogenated oils.
The candy gets it’s sweetness from organic evaporated cane juice and organic brown rice syrup. The organic brown rice syrup they use in their candies is minimally processed and not highly refined like the sugars found in most candies.
I should also not that ALL GoOrganic hard candies are produced in a nut-free facility. GoOrganic chewy candies are manufactured, in a facility that handles nuts, but the product itself is nut-free. All products are soy-free, casein-free, nut-free, and vegan (except Honey & Honey Lemon).
The brand’s mission is to provide a healthier alternative to other premium candies.
As a parent I have always been concerned about my children having too many sweets. They are great from time to time, but not all the time. As with anything else, it’s OK within moderation.
I enjoy hard and chewy candies, but most on the market have the same old flavors (cherry, grape, lemon…). What I like about GoOrganic hard and chewy candies is that they come in interesting and exciting flavors like Chocolate Ginger, Blood Orange, Apple and Ice Mint Mango. Needless to say, GoOrganic candy is not your average, ordinary candy.
GoOrganic sent me all of their varieites (chews and hard candies) to try out. I wasn’t sure which to try first. They all sounded so good.
I am a big fan of ginger. I like the spiciness to it.
Originally I bought hard ginger candies to keep on hand for when I travel (I get motion sickness). I found that they were so good that I ate them all the time (they were candy – not medication). Because of that I was really looking forward to the Chocolate Ginger and Ginger Xtreme.
Sadly, chocolate and ginger don’t pair together very well – in MY opinion. I wanted to like them, I truly did. But I didn’t like the flavor combination. That is not to say others won’t love it. My mom always said “one man’s meat is another man’s poison.”
The Ginger Xtreme is really good. If you like hot and spicy things, this is for you. They remind me of Fire Balls or Red Hot – but with a Ginger taste. The regular Ginger candy was my favorite out of all of them.
The Honey Lemon is also very good. It’s a nice combination between the two flavors. It’s not too lemony -not too much honey.
Normally I am not a fan of mango, but GoOrganics Ice Mint Mango is an interesting combination.
I LOVE the GoOrganic Fruit Chews. Each one is individually wrapped (as with all the GoOrgnaic candies). The fruit chews come in Strawberry, Lemon, Raspberry and Sour Apple flavors. YUMMY!!!
The only product that is not individually wrapped is the GoOrganic Fruit Snacks Fruit Medley. These are made with real fruit and provide you with 100% of Vitamin C per serving.
My only “complaint” (and I use that term loosely) is that you cannot re-seal the bag once you open it. That is fine for the hard candies and chews, but with the Fruit Snacks you want the bag to be able to close unless you plan on eating the whole bag (3 servings). Aside from that I have nothing but great thing to say about the candies I received to review.
