For parties, okay and at home too, I like to use organic and all natural candy–free of artificial colors, flavors and preservatives. I like to make sure that the candy I use doesn’t contain any high fructose corn syrup or hydrogenated oils either. I know what you’re thinking, “Lighten up, it’s just a party. Why go to all of this trouble for healthy candy?” Honestly, I’m not always this extreme. But I make the effort because I think it’s healthier for the kiddos and I love to support like minded businesses. I think the companies who make these candies have great ideas, old fashioned wisdom, and a concern for the future. And all of our kids are the future.
* A few people wanted to know where I buy candy from. I buy gum from Glee Gum. I also often look on Natural Candy Store and at Hammond’s selection of all natural candy. And Amazon often has a good selection of organic candy. Just do a search to see what they currently have.
