Surf Sweets: Review and Giveaway

My children, like most children, are candy monsters.  They love candy in any shape or form they can get it.  In fact, Em’s first sentence, at the age of 15 months was, “More more chocolate Momma!”  Nicolas hoards his Halloween candy for months and won’t share it with a soul.  So, I am not kidding when I say they love it.  Like any good mother, I try to limit it.  I mean, candy isn’t good for them, is it?  Well, if it’s Surf Sweets, it is!  Surf Sweets gummy candies are made with organic fruit juice and sweeteners, have no artificial colors or flavors, and are one of the only candies made without corn syrup!  They are also chock full of Vitamin C!  From the website:  “Since we love candy and eat it regularly, we thought it made sense to offer candy that not only tastes fantastic, but that is a better choice for you, your family and for the environment.”


School started this week and so that means once we hit the door the kids are clamoring for a snack.  Normally, I would never allow them candy for an after school snack, and of course this makes me the meanest mother on the planet.  So, the kids were overjoyed (and shocked) to try the Gummy Bears and Sour Worms that Surf Sweets was kind enough to send us.

CANDY FOR A SNACK?  Our mother has lost her mind!  Thumbs up!!!

CANDY FOR A SNACK? Our mother has lost her mind! Thumbs up!!!

Both kids loved their gummies and devoured the entire bag.  I sampled some of the regular gummy bears and it tasted every bit as good as a super sugary gummy bear!  What an easy swap to make when your kids want that junky snack but you don’t want to give in.  They’ll never know they are getting the good stuff!  Surf Sweets offers several options from beary to wormy, sour to sweet,  and snack size or supersize to  share with a gummy-loving  friend.    For friends with allergies, they are gluten-free, casien-free and made in a facility that is free of the ten most common allergens.  WOW!  Check out your local Toys R Us, Whole Foods, or other natural and specialty retailers to get your hands on some of these treats!  Now, can someone please make Mom’s chocolate healthy?


Surf Sweets has generously offered one lucky Not-So-Blog reader a delicious gummy assortment AND a Surf Sweets T-shirt!  Trust me, you won’t believe how good and good for you candy can be!
