You know what’s unreal? Kendall Jenner’s legs. You know what else is unreal? Candy that isn’t loaded with sugar and artificial ingredients. UNREAL was started by a 15-year-old because his parents confiscated his Halloween candy. You know what I was doing when I was 15? Smoking and spraying graffiti in the girls’ bathroom.
This kid’s determination spawned a line of candy with 5 chocolate candies that boast 30% less sugar, 60% more protein and 250% more fiber than leading brands. There’s no corn syrup, hydrogenated oil, artificial flavors or colors, or GMO’s. What you will find is sustainable, organic ingredients like coloring from beets and red cabbage, cacao beans from Ghana and Ecuador, 100% sustainable, organic palm kernel oil, and dairy from happy, free-range cows. Look for Candy Coated Chocolates, Candy Coated Chocolates with Peanuts, Chocolate Caramel Nougat Bar, Chocolate Caramel Peanut Nougat Bar and Peanut Butter Cups ($.89-$4.99). Get UNREAL from major stores like CVS,Staples, BJ’s Wholesale Clubs and Candy Direct.
