The kids are tucked in bed, and there are still piles of Halloween candy spread out on the table, sorted and saved. What do parents do? Nibble some? Toss it? Donate it to soldiers serving in far-off wars? Or let their kids eat it?
The problem is that most of the candy is full of unhealthy ingredients – or is it?
You and your neighbors could buy UNREAL candy, with it’s mantra, “Unjunk.” It is a whole lot better for your kids than ordinary cheap American candy bars.
The idea behind UNREAL candy, developed by a team led by a kid entrepreneur Nicky Bronner, is that all their bars and sweets are made with wholesome ingredients with more fiber and more protein:
The dairy comes from free-range, pasture-raised cows without antibiotics or added hormones. The palm kernel oil hails from a sustainable, organic farm in Brazil. The cacao beans are actually traceable, sourced from farms in Ghana and Ecuador that do not employ child slave labor.
They’re not more expensive then regular candy – just better for you – and the environment.
Super Chef turned to our in-house candy tester to evaluate the new unjunk bars.
UNREAL 41 are candy coated chocolates, similar to M&Ms, but colored in muted green, deep blue, mauve, orange, yellow, and brown. They have a similar, yet less-sweet taste.
UNREAL 5 Chocolate Caramel Nougat Bar is fine, but it’s missing some crunch and the chocolate flavor is not intense.
UNREAL 8 Chocolate Caramel Peanuts Nougat Bar is perhaps the best bar. The nougat tastes fresh and rich, the caramel is not too sweet, the nuts add good crunch, and the whole bar is a pleasure to eat.
UNREAL 77 Peanut Butter Cups are similar to Reese’s but less sweet. They have a rich peanut-y taste.
