Admittedly, I have not been able to try all the products that they sent (there are a lot!) but I had so much fun trying what I have so far. I probably never would have sought out these products on my own. I could give or take most candy (chocolate is another story…) but now I know just where to turn for something sweet or sour!
This is the entire package I got in the mail. The individual packs are bigger and have multiple servings. The boxes contain smaller packs and are a single serving (I prefer this because it’s easier to control portion size.) When I was
eating the sour gummy worms out of the bigger bag, I definitely ate two servings worth. Woops! ;]
Anyway, Surf Sweets is an awesome company. All products are gluten and casein free. Also, from their FAQ page: “Surf Sweets products are made with natural colors and flavors, organic fruit juice and sweeteners, and provide you with your daily allowance of Vitamin C. We are also one of the only candies made without corn syrup.” These are definitely candies you don’t have to feel guilty about eating or giving to your children (especially because of the Vitamin C!)
I loved all of the sour products! The sour worms and gummy bears made me so happy and were definitely my favorite. Just enough sweet with a punch of sour too.
As far as the other products, I was overall very impressed. The gummy worms, gummy bears and jelly beans were just as flavorful and sweet as their junk food counterparts. Like I said, I probably wouldn’t have ever picked these things out for myself but I’ve definitely enjoyed having them around to throw in my backpack for a snack in class or grab on my way out the door when I want something to chew on. Surf Sweets also included coupons for my next purchase. Assuming that I can find them in my area I will definitely be picking up more to snack on (sour worms especially!)
