Candy is often associated with holidays. Who doesn’t like candy? (This is rhetorical, BTW) If you have dietary restrictions, it can be hard to find candy that you can consume safely. There are plenty of candies without gluten or dairy, but they often have soy. A few months ago, I came across the Natural Candy Store. They have a variety of candy options, including allergen-free, vegan, and GMO-free. I’d been meaning to order candy from them for a while and after receiving an email about a discount on Easter candy, I decided to go ahead and place an order.
I placed an order on Sunday evening and I got it on Wednesday. Shoutout to the mail carrier that placed my package on the mailbox door. It was very windy and the box was light and Nikki discovered the box at the end of the driveway. Way to go, USPS. *eye roll emoji* Luckily, nothing was damaged.
I know you’re curious about the allergen-free Easter candy review. Wait no longer.
Allergy-Friendly Chocolate Easter Egg Lollipop
This lollipop is quite large and I wasn’t expecting it to be. The label says it’s 1.5 oz/43g. The lollipop comes from Amanda’s Own Confections. It was hard to find milk chocolate candy that’s both dairy- and soy-free, so I was happy to find this. Nikki isn’t much of a chocolate fan, but as a chocolate lover, I couldn’t deny y’all a review. It’s really good! You can’t taste a difference at all. I need more of these, tbh. 10/10 would buy again.
Easter Bunny & Butterfly Lollipop
We were surprised by the size of the lollipop as well. This orange lollipop comes from Strawberry Hill Candy. Nikki usually isn’t a fan of orange flavored candy, but she did liked this one because the orange flavor “isn’t too strong.” I am a fan of orange flavored candy and liked it as well. The butterfly lollipop comes from the same company and is a watermelon flavor. Nikki liked this one much better.
Mini Moo Free Chocolate Bar-Bunnycomb
This dairy-free chocolate bar comes from England. Not only is it gluten-, dairy-, and soy-free, it’s also vegan. The website describes the bar is “topped with candy crunch”. This yummy candy contains honeycomb. It also may contain hazelnuts, so please be aware if you have tree nut allergies. We both really liked this bar. Nikki says “it wasn’t too ‘chocolate-y'” for her.
Surf Sweets Organic Fruity Bears
These gummy bears are gelatin-free and free of corn syrup. Even without gelatin, the bears are chewy. They are vegan and non-GMO Project Verified. Warning: These fruity bears are extremely addictive and you may inhale the bag quickly (we do have *some* willpower).
Surf Sweets Organic Peach Rings
We both love peach rings, so we were eager to try these. Our only complaint is that there aren’t nearly enough rings in the bag. These peach rings are vegan and non-GMO Project Verified. 10/10 would buy multiple bags at once.
CleanCandy Watermelon Wheel
When I was placing the order, I was able to choose a sample. I chose the watermelon wheel since I know Nikki loves watermelon. They sent a single wheel. This candy is made in the USA. It’s also organic, vegan, kosher, and fair trade. Nikki really liked the wheel and would order more.
We were really pleased with our order and definitely plan to order again and try new candy.
