This is a question I hear multiple times a day from my three-year old, Riley. I think the child associates certain daily activities with getting gummies for a treat. And, I can’t really blame her, because I use them as bribes, a lot.
Riley goes potty – she gets gummies.
Riley listens at school – she gets gummies.
Riley walks to the car and doesn’t play in traffic – yep that calls for gummies too.
…. You get the idea.
Lately, I’ve started feeling some serious mom guilt for feeding her so much junk. I’ve tried buying organic gummies from Costco before, but they were disgusting, and I honestly didn’t blame Riley for saying “gross” and throwing them on the floor. I actually joined in on the protest.
So, when I found Black Forest Organic, it was like a little bit of sparkle in my child’s currently rotting teeth. Their products are one, tasty, and two, certified organic. They are also gluten free, non-GMO (winning!), allergen free, and peanut free. Not to mention, they have been voted America’s Best Tasting Gummy Bears, and I’d have to say, I agree.
I am always on the quest for organic treats, but the problem with organic treats is that they sometimes fall short on the deliciousness scale. That is not the case here. These candies are all incredibly good and soft, not tough to chew like some gummy bears. They are also in the process of a full line extension, which includes sour gummies, and hard candy. I loved the Sour Heads and Gummy Worms. My husband was a fan of the Gummy Bears, and Riley, well, she ate and enjoyed all of them.
Made with all natural ingredients, I feel good about giving them to my family, without having to wonder exactly what Red Dye #40 is…I know one thing, Red Dye #40 is not food. I’d much rather my treats be colored with fruit and vegetable juices, which is exactly what Black Forest Organics uses in their products.
Full disclosure, Black Forest Organic shipped me a whole box of goodies, a case of each of their current organic candy options. As you can see, I am stocked for quite a while. We will definitely enjoy them and give them away to friends. And, when the sad day comes that the last bag is empty, we will find them at the nearest store and replenish our supply! Delish!
