Unjunk Halloween with UNREAL Candy

My family, like most that I know, loves Halloween.  One of the reasons it is so popular is because the kids get LOTS of candy when they Trick or Treat.  In recent years, I have given out crayons and other non-edible items to reduce the sugar intake by the local kids...even at a small amount.  My daughter and my husband are both chocoholics and getting them to give up their candy can be a hard task. However, when we were sent some samples of UNREAL Candy, they both had a change of heart.

Our thoughts:    THUMBS UP!

We first sampled the UNREAL 54, Candy coated chocolate with peanuts.  Great taste and I preferred them to the more well known brand.  The UNREAL 8, Chocolate Caramel Peanuts Nougat Bar was next.  I'll admit, I ate most of this myself.  I loved it!  Perfect amount of everything to me, and not overly sweet.  My daughter took the entire UNREAL 5, Chocolate Caramel Nougat Bar to school with her.  She shared with her BFF and they both really liked it.  (We actually had to go to CVS to buy more)  The last item we had to review was the UNREAL 77, Peanut Butter Cups.  My hubby had eaten our review sample before my daughter and I got home, and he loved it!  His only request was more peanut butter, LOL.  My daughter and I purchased one so we could try it, and it was another winner!

With all that being said, the question remains...Would we buy UNREAL Candy?  The answer is, Yes!  We bought some to give away on Halloween and some for my daughter and her BFF to share at school.  I feel better knowing my family, although still eating candy, is eating candy that is better for them.
