Giveaway & Product Review - Surf Sweets Gluten Free, Natural, & Organic Candy



Looking for gluten free gummy candy that is also organic and natural? Look no further... Surf Sweets has created a yummy collection of gluten free, natural organic gummy candy that is sure to please both kids and their parents alike.


My kids are at the age when it is important to them to have the same trendy treats as other children at school and in the neighborhood. However, I am at the age where it is important to me to offer my kids the healthiest version of treats I can find. Surf Sweets offers the perfect balance of sweet, gummy candy goodness with a health conscious approach.


Here's what Surf Sweets want you to know:


"At Surf Sweets, we love candy! We’re passionate about making the world’s most flavorful candy using all natural pure ingredients. We’re also a company that cares about the health and well-being of our customers and our planet. These values have inspired us to launch a complete line of all-natural, organic gummy candy and jelly beans.


We want to help you foster a healthy lifestyle for you and your family. In addition to using natural, organic ingredients, Surf Sweets candy provides 100% of your Vitamin C per serving. We also understand that what’s not in your food can be just as important as what is. That’s why all of our products are free of trans fats, GMOs, corn syrup, gluten, artificial colors and flavors. We also produce our products in a peanut-free facility that is free of other common allergens (wheat, dairy, soy, eggs, tree nuts, shell fish, and fish).



Staying active is also an important part of staying healthy. Engaging in fun sports such as swimming, running, hiking, active play -- and of course SURFING -- is fun and healthy. We like to ride the waves whenever we can, and hope that you’ll do the same!


When we say that our candy is made from all-natural ingredients, we mean that we don’t use synthetic flavors and artificial colors. If it doesn’t exist in nature, you won’t find it in Surf Sweets. Our products reflect the healthier environment that inspired the “Surf Sweets” brand and you can taste the difference.



When a product is certified USDA Organic, its ingredients have been grown free of artificial fertilizers and harsh chemical pesticides. Organic agricultural practices enhance the biological structure and nutrients of the soil, resulting in a pure, high-quality harvest and the long-term sustainability of the farm. All of our products use certified USDA Organic and natural ingredients grown the way nature intended. "


I think that Surf Sweets has hit the nail on the head with there unique brand of gluten free, natural, organic candy. I enjoyed eating these delicious treats as much as my children. I haven't eaten gummy candy since becoming a vegetarian, but because all of the samples Surf Sweets sent me to review were also gelatin free, I could indulge. I felt like I was a kid again, enjoying the simple pleasures of gummy candies. My favorite was The Sour Berry Bears. :) My kids thought the Sour Worms and the Gummy Swirls were awesome (what kid doesn't love the gross out factor of worm shaped candy?). My husband went for the Jelly Beans (he's a traditionalist ;-)).

What will your families favorite fruity, juicy, Surf Sweets gummy candy flavor be?
