Unreal Candy, Just in time for Halloween

Can a candy bar really be considered healthy? Probably not. But everyone needs a treat now and then. And if you’re going to go down the candy aisle, bear in mind that there is a whole range of candy options from not-so-bad to pure chemical junk. You might as well go for something with minimal junk. Yet when it comes to getting a sugar fix, we don’t always have time to go to the health food store to pick up a favorite like chocolate-covered organic almonds. One company is trying to change all that: Unreal.

Enter Unreal candy, a new company that mimics our favorite treats, such as peanut M&Ms, Milky Way bars, Snickers, or Reese’s peanut butter cups. But these versions are “unjunked,” made without corn syrup, partially hydrogenated oils, artificial ingredients, GMOs, or preservatives. And on top of all that they have a low glycemic index. Your kids won’t even be able to taste the difference. But what is really revolutionary is Unreal candy will be available in stores nationwide. It’s currently in stores  like CVS, Kroger, Michaels, Ralphs and Staples and will soon be available at Target. That’s 30,000 stores coming soon. Here’s to a slightly healthier Halloween!
