GF Kid Friendly Lollipops

Wouldn't it be grand, if going gluten-free were easy for kids?  And the parents that have to go along for the ride?  Yes, It would be grand, nice and ideally easy.  But the truth is, is that going gluten-free and dealing with Celiac Disease is NOT easy.  It's hard.  And it's even harder to find a good candy or sweet that your child will love rather then spit out, because it doesn't taste the "same" as "before".  I put these two words in "air quotes", because what used to be and what was before, is certainly not now.  Not with this lifestyle.  

To re-adjust your child's palate is a life long journey.  But on the flip side more and more wonderful brands are coming to the surface like Yummy Earth.

Yummy Earth's Candies are Organic.  Only using the finest natural ingredients.  It is hard to find good products that are concerned with the natural well being of their customers, and their customer's children.  But this brand is free of many additives and thickeners and more.  This brand is certified Organic, there are no artificial dyes, using 100% natural flavors, Real fruit extracts, No corn syrup, Casein-Free, Gluten-Free, 100 Vegan, GMO-Free, Nut-Free, Soy-Free, Wheat-Free and Dairy-Free.

Now, of course there would really be no reason for me to indulge on these lolli's, but my boss brought them in.  My boss has a young daughter.  So she brought them with her to work and gave me and my co-worker one.  Great Lolli's by the way!  I was so excited, I wanted to blog these.  They are kid friendly.  They speak to kids.  Now they don't taste like a sugary blow pop or Charms lolli, but they are good.  At first, the after taste shocked me, as I was not expecting it.  I definitely tasted the organic juices and natural fruits they used.  After I put it down, I decided to give it another lick, and then finished the entire pop, which is only 22 calories, if you are counting.

This brand has tons of other candy options like gummy bears, gummy worms, assorted flavor lollipops, vitamin C pops, Cough Drops and more.  It's the Organic way.

Their website is very user friendly, even showing links to all their certificates, like Gluten-Free, Egg-Free, Dairy-Free, Peanut-Free, No High Fructose Corn Syrup, Soy Free, and Kof-K Kosher Parve.  Click Here for this list.  This brand is proud, and their website shows this.  And that is the number one thing you want when looking into a product for your children's well being.

So by now, I am sure you are wondering where you can pick up a batch of these delightful candies...You are? Well then click HERE!  Lollipops are changing dramatically.  We are in a new age, where children and adults are entering a world of major allergic reactions, auto-immune disorders and other similar situations.  So Organic is one way to go.
