Vegan And Vegetarian Easter Snacks! The Healthier Choice!

Logan and Sam love Jelly Beans! We couldn't possibly give them an Easter Basket without them. When I found out about Surf Sweets, I had to try their products. They are made with Organic Fruit Juice and natural sweeteners! When you open the packs of Jelly Beans, Gummy Bears, and Gummy Swirls, the intense fruity smell hits you. It smells just like fresh fruit! So, the question is, how do they taste? How do they compare with other brands? The flavor is not as distinct as Jelly Bellys. I can't pop a jelly bean into my mouth and be 100% certain of the flavor. But that's the magic of artificial ingredients used by many other companies. You could make cardboard taste like a strawberry if you wanted to. Surf Sweets has none if that! They are very flavorful and juicy! They're delicious and they are much better for you, according to their site. I certainly didn't feel guilty giving them to Logan and Sam! They are sweetened with organic cane juice and real organic fruit juice instead of corn syrup, and they’re free of artificial colors, flavors and GMOs. Surf Sweets candies are gluten free, dairy and casein free, and allergy friendly, meaning that they contain none of the most common food allergens (wheat, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, soy, fish, shellfish). All Surf Sweets candies are produced and packaged in a dedicated nut-free facility!
Surf Sweets has delicious options for vegans and vegetarians as four of its candies are vegan (Fruity Bears, Gummy Swirls, Sour Berry Bears, Sour Worms) and five are vegetarian (Fruity Bears, Gummy Swirls, Sour Berry Bears, Sour Worms and Jelly Beans)! Their Gummy Bears and Gummy Worms contain gelatin, so they are not vegetarian. Unlike other candy brands, Surf Sweets proudly makes its products in the USA . Most Surf Sweets candies are currently available in  grocery and natural foods stores, online and at specialty retailers throughout the U.S. and Canada! Be sure to check them out! Their new snack sizes are perfect for lunchboxes and Easter Baskets!!!
To Disclose: We were sent a regular size pouch of Gummy Swirls and plenty of Gummy Bears and Jelly Beans to try in order to complete this review. No monetary compensation received and honest opinions were given.
