Americans  spent over $2 billion on Easter candy last year, with the average family spending just under $30 (source: Barna Group, National Retail Federation, National Confectioner’s Association). That is a lot of  chocolate, candy and sugar coated-eggs, that are commonly filled with artificial colors, flavors and sweeteners and ‘bad’ for our children.   As parents are looking for more natural candy options for their  themselves and their kids to enjoy, leading brand of naturally good gummy candies and jelly beans, Surf Sweets, has perfect swaps for a healthier Easter Basket without sacrificing all the flavor we all expect  in candy.


While I am getting Easter baskets ready for my kids today, I am thrilled to be able to include the ultimate healthy candy choice for kids.  They are not only all natural, vegan and organic, they also are free of the top ten allergens.  Surf Sweets’ Fruity Hearts, Watermelon Rings and Jelly Beans are sure to be new favorites of my boys.  Produced in a facility free of the top ten allergens, the candy is also a perfect solution for school parties and kids’ candy favor bags.  They are also ideal for cookie or cupcake decorating. 

Fill your Easter basket with Surf Sweets’ NEW! Organic  Watermelon Rings and Peach Rings, Organic Fruity Bears ( Cherry,  Grapefruit, Grape, Lemon, Strawberry, Orange) and Organic Spring Mix  Jelly Bean (Tropical Punch, Lemon Aid, Mixed Berry, Pineapple, Tangerine, Watermelon). 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.
