Surf Sweets let you do Valentine's Day naturally!

Disclaimer:  I received samples of Surf Sweets for review purposes.  As always, my opinions are my own.
Valentine’s Day is almost here!  Are you ready yet?   Have you been waiting because it just really bothers you to buy those candies filled with artificial flavors and colors to give to your loved ones?  Valentine's sure wouldn’t be the same without sharing a something sweet and pretty, but that doesn’t mean they have to be treats full of artificial ingredients. This is can forget those Red-dyed and artificial flavor filled candies that have been the mainstays of Valentine’s Day treats for eons. Now, Surf Sweets has naturally good gummy candies made with organic and natural ingredients to give you healthier and delicious candy swaps to spread sweet love.

I was impressed when I saw the ingredients and labeling for the Surf Sweets and I have been hooked ever since I found them a few years ago at my local grocery store. I am so excited to include them in my Valentine's Days gifts to my little one. I feel so much better about her eating these candies. Did you know that Surf Sweets FruityHearts are certified organic watermelon and cherry heart-shaped gummies, and one of the only, all natural, vegan, and organic Valentine’s Day candy options available?  That is great news for everyone!

Bert Cohen, President and Founder of Surf Sweets says regarding the Surf Sweets Fruits Hearts,  “They not only taste great, but they’re made with real organic fruit juice, fortified with antioxidant Vitamin C, as well as vegan, allergy friendly and gluten free.”  One of the things I personally love about Surf Sweets is that the candy is a perfect solution for the big issue of school parties and kids’ candy favor bags. No worries and no grumbling from the principal.  One of the ideas I was considering for Valentine's Day was making some cupcakes and using the Surf Sweets Fruity Hearts as a decoration.  I think that would be so adorable.

I love the Surf Sweets Jelly Beans and Watermelon Rings too. Lot of yummy flavors and no artificial flavors or colors to feel guilty about either.    I was excited to see that Surf Sweets are available on Amazon too!  Excellent prices too... I like that Surf Sweets has candy in larger packages but also single serve packages so you don't overdo it when you just want a little bit of a treat.  One of the things I really liked about all the varieties of Surf Sweets is that they are better kind of treat for you versus conventional candies since they have totally natural flavors and colors.

Surf Sweets  products are free of trans fats, GMOs, corn syrup, gluten, artificial colors and flavors. A better kind of candy, right?  Most of their products are vegetarian and some are even vegan. One of my babysitters has a severe nut allergy and is always looking for new things that she can safely eat. That is nice that it is good for someone looking for a nut-free candy for their child.  Surf Sweets are produced in a nut-free facility that is free of other common allergens (wheat, dairy, soy, eggs, tree nuts, shell fish, and fish).  These candies are perfect for lunch bags, after school, and really for anytime enjoyment!  

One of the most lovely things about Surf Sweets is that they give back. They contribute to 1% for the Planet.  What this means is that they donate a minimum of 1% of the sales from each of their products to a bunch of worthy organizations.  A few they mentioned on their website were Climate Cycle, Healthy Child Healthy World and EcoMom Alliance.  That is a nice added benefit of supporting this great company.

Each 8 oz. bag of Surf Sweets Fruity Hearts contains 130 calories per serving. They are being sold for a suggested retail price of $4.49, and are available nationally at Whole Foods and other natural and specialty retailers.  I also see them at Stop + Shop.
Surf Sweets currently offers a variety of yummy candies: Fruity Bears, Gummy Swirls, Sour Berry Bears, Sour Worms, Fruity Hearts, Gummy Bears, Watermelon and Peach Rings, and Jelly Beans, that are available across North America.
