Unreal. No harmful dyes, all natural ingredients, no poisonous preservatives. That’s what the Unreal candy company is promising. If you’re going to splurge and have some candy, you can pay a little more and get a more “Real Food” product. The product is not necessarily more healthy – candy is candy. But the product does contain “Real Food” and not fake chemicals.
The Unreal candy products were the idea of a teenager after an argument about the unhealthy Halloween candy he’d collected. His dad took away all the candy that had harmful dyes and chemical additives. The kid was left with hardly any candy to treat himself to. He set out to prove to his dad that the ingredients weren’t harmful but ended up proving his dad right!
From that argument came the idea of producing a “healthier” version of the popular candies available. Using beets, turmeric, and cabbage for colors and all natural ingredients, the Unreal candy should still be considered a “treat” and not something to indulge in often. However, parents can feel a little better giving these treats to their kids instead of the chemical-laden versions more widely available.
What’s the big difference? Unreal candy does NOT contain corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, artificial flavors, GMO’s (genetically modified organisms), nor synthetic colors (which are made from petroleum). The “Unreal” brand does contain organic oil, milk from free-range cows that are not given antibiotics or hormones, all natural colors made in nature (beet color, red cabbage, turmeric), and about 30% less sugar and more fiber and protein per serving compared to the competition brands.
So, if you’re going to splurge anyways and want to make a BETTER CHOICE, then I would recommend you Buy Unreal Candy brand.
