Go Green for Halloween
Just in time for trick-or-treating season, Ridgewood, N.J.-based YummyEarth has created what it says is the world’s first USDA- and EU-certified organic gummy bears with the quintessential bouncy texture of a traditional gummy bear. Made with real fruit extracts and planet-friendly ingredients in flavors such as Pomegranate Pucker and Strawberry Smash, YummyEarth Organic Gummy Bears and YummyEarth Organic Gummy Worms are free of gluten, fat, dairy products, soy, GMOs, peanuts, tree nuts and have no artificial dyes, no MSG and no corn syrup. Organic purple carrots and black currants are used to give them their vibrant colors, and each serving provides plenty of vitamin C. A 5-ounce bag of Gummy Bears or Gummy Worms retails for a suggested $2.59, while a 10-pack Gummy Bears Family Snack Pack or a Gummy Bears Halloween Pack with 30 mini treat packs goes for a suggested $5.99.
