Are you looking for Organic alternative to one of your favorite holiday treats for your kids this holiday season? Then you may want to try new TruSweets™ Organic Candy Canes. They are organic and contain all natural ingredients and are free of corn syrup and artificial colors and flavors. My son LOVES candy canes! In fact I think could eat them year round! I was excited to offer him an organic version of his favorite treat! Best of all they are gluten free.
TruSweets, LLC just announced that it will launch one of the only brands of organic candy canes available on the market just in time for the holidays, TruSweets™ Candy Canes. They sent us a box to review and I was very interested to see how they would compare. They have a very pale pink stripe versus the traditional "bright" stripe. That is because they are made with no artificial colors. TruSweets™ Candy Canes are made with just four simple ingredients: organic evaporated cane juice, organic brown rice syrup, organic fruit juice, and natural peppermint flavor. They contain no corn syrup, artificial colors or flavors, and they are gluten free, vegan and kosher.
My son thought they were great! He did mention that they were not the same "color" as his regular candy canes but after he tried them he didn't seem to mind. In fact as you can see from the picture he enjoyed them. My hubby and I also tried one. They were a very light peppermint taste. They have have only 60 calories per candy cane. However like with any candy we always suggest eating in moderation.
TruSweets™ Candy Canes will be available nationwide beginning in November at Whole Foods, independent natural foods stores, online, and at specialty retailers throughout the country. Each five-ounce package contains 10 organic candy canes and will be sold for a suggested retail price is $3.99 per package.
