My boys and I live a pretty healthy lifestyle, complete with plenty of daily physical activity and a wide variety of wholesome foods. But all three of us have one big weakness when it comes to healthy eating…candy! It’s only natural that Zackary and Benjamin, at four and eight years of age, would be big fans of candy but I have to admit I’m as bad as they are. I resist the cravings for the most part but every once in a while I just have to indulge!
When that happens, I often buy a bag of Dare REALFRUIT Gummies. With real fruit juice in a variety of flavours, they’re a more natural choice for a delicious sweet treat. And now, Dare Candy Co has released two brand new candies perfect for summer snacking! Dare REALFRUIT Berries are soft and chewy bite-sized berries made with real raspberry juice. The berries are peanut-free, gluten-free, gelatin-free, fat-free and have no artificial colours or flavours. And Dare REALFRUIT Chews are gluten-free, come in five delicious flavours, are made with real fruit juice and also contain no artificial colours or flavours!
My boys and I received samples of the new Dare REALFRUIT candies to test out and of course, all three of us were happy to take on the task. We tried the Dare REALFRUIT Berries first and Benjamin especially just loved them. He tends to favour softer, sweeter candies and the rich raspberry flavour of the berries was perfect for him. I liked how easy portion control was with the berries too; when my boys wanted a snack I could quickly count out five or ten berries for each of them for a reasonably-sized treat. [Read more…]
