Giveaway: Yummy Earth Organic Lollipops

THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED.

Back in October, I blogged about buying Yummy Earth Organic Lollipops during an Amazon sale--and the crazy debate that raged on Amazon about the candies. Soon after posting that, the lollipops arrived...

...and they are the best lollipops I've ever had.

From a press release sent out on March 15, 2010, here's some history and information on Yummy Earth:
"Founded by two dads who couldn’t find great tasting treats for their kids that weren’t filled with corn syrup and artificial stuff, YummyEarth organic candy is 100% all natural, made with real fruit extracts and planet friendly ingredients. 'Kids will love the taste and parents will feel responsible sharing our candy which is gluten-free, fat-free, dairy-free, soy-free, GMO-free, peanut-free, tree-nut free and has no artificial dyes, no MSG and no corn syrup,' said co-founder Rob Wunder."

I'll be honest with you--my kids eat one Yummy Earth lollipop almost every day. They are only about 25 calories each, and while even organic candy is still sugary, I feel good knowing that all the flavors and colors are natural. It's a nice little treat...and The Engineer and I occasionally indulge too!

The flavors are tart and amazing! I think Pomegranate Pucker may be my favorite. But I like them all, from Sour Apple Tart to Tooberry Blueberry!

Yummy Earth also makes a few other products, such as gummy bears (which I plan to try soon) and hard candy drops. You can check out their products and order them at the Yummy Earth website or Amazon, or go to the store and buy them. Click here for a list of stores that carry them.

For Easter, look in your local stores for specially-packaged Yummy Earth lollipops and gummy bears.
