Healthier Chocolates with Unreal Chocolate Candies #vegan #glutenfree #organic #fairtrade

In an effort to find healthier alternatives to the candies we find in the grocery store aisles, we decided to try this Unreal Chocolate Candy we've been hearing so much about. Now, let's preface this by saying that we realize it's still candy, but if someone can find a way to make it a little healthier, we're all ears! Today we tried the Unreal Milk Chocolate Gems, Dark Chocolate Peanut Gems, Dark Chocolate Crispy Quinoa Gems and the Crispy Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, and shared our thoughts below. 

About Unreal Chocolate
All of the Unreal Chocolate candies are certified gluten free, vegan, organic and ensure that no artificial ingredients are used. They have opted for natural ingredients such as cabbage, beets, carrots and turmeric to color their candy shells naturally. No artificial dyes here! We like that they use organic palm oil as well. In addition to striving for healthier candy, they also participate in the Fair Trade agreement to ensure that farmers are paid fairly. In fact, 93% of their ingredients are Fair Trade Certified. Unreal Chocolate is also non-gmo certified and made from sustainable ingredients. It's always a bonus to find products that are environmentally conscious! 

The Candy
  • Dark Chocolate Peanut Gems-Think Peanut M&Ms, but with different colors and a smoother chocolate. One thing I noticed is that a normal packet of M&Ms seems to go really quickly. These Unreal Dark Chocolate Peanut Gems are more filling. I'm not sure if it's due to the fact that this candy has more fiber and protein in it, but I was full after just a handful.
  • Milk Chocolate Gems- The chocolate is sweet, but a different taste than average American candy. It has more of a European chocolate smoothness to it and similar colors to the Peanut version.
  • Dark Chocolate Crispy Quinoa Gems- I like a little something in my chocolate, so the texture of the quinoa is perfect. Plus, dark chocolate is always a win in our house.
  • Crispy Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups-I can't stop eating these! I should probably start by saying that these did not remind me of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. With that said, I really love the crispy texture mixed in with smoothness of the peanut butter and chocolate. For a healthier treat, I would easily swap my Reese's Cups for these and feel totally satisfied.

These candies would make a great substitution for traditional chocolates, whether you're buying them for your kids, creating gift baskets, or using them for party favors.
