Candy doesn't have to be complicated. Try organic, all-natural sweets instead.
By Lylah M. Alphonse
Sweets full of unpronounceable chemicals are no treat at all. Pure Fun Confections Inc. offers a delectable alternative. Their candies – certified organic, vegan, GMO-, pesticide-, synthetic color-, artificial flavor- and gluten-free – cost about $4 per 3½-ounce bag and come in such tempting flavors as Goji berry, pomegranate, and root beer with vanilla, as well as the more traditional lime, tangerine, and lemon (pictured). Made with brown-rice syrup, evaporated cane juice, and colored naturally with beets, turmeric, and the like, the candies taste bright and clean. With so many wholesome ingredients, they just might be good for you. [More]
