Okay, maybe I am behind the times here. Have you tried Surf Sweets yet? I haven't seen them in any stores near me, but those Surf Sweets people have got my number on Twitter. All day long, I get little Surf Sweets messages that whisper sweet nothings to me about gummy bears and worms and...I am going to have try them now. (Do not doubt the power of Twitter!) I visited the Surf Sweets website and they sound good, fun and food allergy friendly. What more could I ask for?
If you haven't heard of them, listen to this:
- "Made with organic fruit juice and sweeteners
- natural colors and flavors...
- free of corn syrup and GMOs
- made in a nut free facility
- gluten free"
According to the FAQs, they are free of "wheat, dairy, soy, eggs, tree nuts, nuts, fish, and shellfish." I emailed to inquire about a few additional allergens. Their reply: "Although we don't have sunflower seeds, poppy seeds or sesame in our facility, our products and other products in the facility are made with organic sunflower oil." In terms of their food allergy friendliness, it sounds like Surf Sweets picks up where Gimbals left off. They have gummy worms, gummy bears, sour worms, jelly beans, fruit bears and gummy swirls.
For those of you who are more on top of candy than I am, what do you think? Do you like Surf Sweets? Do your kids like them? How are they priced?
