Unjunking your candy with UNREAL chocolates!

I have a love/hate relationship with candy, one I've had all my life.  I'm allergic to something frequently used to make chocolate but haven't been able to ever figure out what that is.  Every time I eat chocolate I am playing Russian Roulette and don't know if it will be one that makes me break out in hives.  One pattern I have noticed is the higher the quality - the less I seem to react.

When I first heard about UNREAL candy, I suspected this might be a match made in heaven for me.  I'd seen them everywhere - CVS, Ralphs, Rite Aid, Michaels, Staples and a bunch of other stores but the skeptic in me prevented me from buying one.  I started to hear murmurs from friends about how very different the chocolates tasted. 

The candy doesn't contain GMO's, artificial flavors, corn syrup, hydrogenated oils and synthetic colors like most candy bars.  They are made with real milk, cane sugar, double cacao, more peanuts and organic palm oil.  The bars contain about 30% less sugar than their counter parts, have 60% more fiber and actually contain protein!  For me I LOVE the fact they contain protein (the chocolate caramel nougat bar has 5 grams of protein!).  I've been working hard at building up my protein in my diet and knowing that there is REAL food in the bars helps remove the guilt with snacking on a candy bar! (All this for right about the same price as a traditional candy bar!)

When I had the chance to throw a party to introduce the UNREAL bars to a bunch of friends I was excited but nervous since I hadn't tried them myself.  After my first bite I was hooked!  The candy tastes so different than regular candy, but different in an wholesome, delicious way!  And the best part in my opinion?  I don't have an allergic reaction to them!

The kids all had a great time running around getting to sample lots of their favorite candy, but unjunked!  I heard several of the kids commenting that the natural food colors sure make the candy taste better!

I took a poll among everyone there and the peanut butter cups were a definite winner, but the candy coated chocolates were also loved.   This is one more tool for parents to use in removing the junk from our children's diets!

I might be the house passing them out at Halloween along with a flyer for parents to read... 

Have you taken the taste test yet?  Do you prefer the taste of junk in your candy? Or do you prefer your candy unjunked?

Note:  This is part of a compensated campaign, but all of the opinions expressed are 100% my own and I absolutely LOVE the UNREAL candy after trying it!  I honestly am thinking pretty seriously about buying a bunch and handing it out to trick or treaters!
