UNREAL Candy Review

Wednesday, October 3, 2012

DISCLOSURE:  I received a coupon for a free UNREAL candy product from BzzAgent.com to try and review.  All opinions are my own.

With Halloween just around the corner, candy is everywhere!  Why not give the kids something you can feel good about them eating?  Introducing UNREAL Candy.  It contains no artificial ingredients, no corn syrup, no hydrogenated oils and has less sugar than other candies out on the market.

It comes in five great varieties:

UNREAL 54 - Candy coated chocolate with peanuts - Compare to Peanut M&M's

UNREAL 41 - Candy coated chocolate - Compare to M&M's

UNREAL 5 - Chocolate Caramel Nougat Bar - Compare to Milky Way

UNREAL 8 - Chocolate Caramel Peanut Nougat Bar - Compare to Snickers

UNREAL 77 - Peanut Butter Cups - Compare to Reese's

How did UNREAL Candy come about?  It started with an argument between founder Michael Bronner and his son Nicky over Halloween candy.  After a night of trick or treating, Nicky came back with a bag full of candy.  The next morning, he found his Dad had confiscated most of it.  Nicky set out to prove the candy wasn't bad for him.  Turns out he was wrong.  Nicky, his older brother and his Dad set out to make a better candy.

Being allergic to peanuts, tree nuts and soy, I didn't really get a chance to try the UNREAL candy.  BUT, my husband did.  He tried both the UNREAL 8 and the UNREAL 5 bars.  He thought they tasted good.  We did have a hard time finding the candy.  We found it at CVS, though we don't always shop there.  We had to kind of go out of our way to get the UNREAL candy.  Luckily, the availability of the candy is getting better, with it expected to be in Target stores this month!

Would you recommend it?
Yes!  Even though I didn't get a chance to eat it, my husband really liked it.  And he's the guy who only buys his chocolate at the natural food store.  So it's good!  And it's better for you than other chocolates.

How much does it cost?
The company's intention is to make sure their candy doesn't cost any more than what you're used to paying for candy.  The average price I found was about $1 for a bar or bag of candy.

Where can I buy it?
http://getunreal.com/find-unreal-candy/ - You can find the candy at stores like CVS, Rite Aid, Michael's, Walgreens, Staples, Wegmans, Fred Meyer, BJ's, Food4Less, Kroger and Ralph's.  They are working on expanding their availability.
