Lollipop, lollipop, allergy-free lollipop!

yummyearthorganiclollipops.JPGWe just got back from a family vacation where we took the kids to dinner with us every night. The baby was easy – she slept in her stroller, and my almost-3 year old daughter was great for the most part, but when the dinner lingered on, she became restless as little kids normally do.

That’s when I pulled out the never before seen or tasted lollipops. My daughter had never really had lollipops before, partly because she was too young to handle them, partly because I didn’t want her to know that candy existed (lost that battle!), and mainly because I hadn’t found a lollipop with ingredients that I felt comfortable giving her. Until now!

I am so excited to have found Yummy Earth Organic Lollipops for the following reasons (in no particular order):

  1. They are delicious.
  2. They are: Certified Organic, 100% Natural Colors, 100% Natural Flavors, Real Fruit Extracts, Allergen-free, Gluten-free, Casein-free, 100% Vegan, GMO free, Egg-free, Soy-free, Nut-free, Wheat-free, Dairy-free.
  3. They are a great size for kids.
  4. They were created by 2 dads.
  5. They have tapioca syrup instead of high fructose corn syrup.
  6. They are colored with things like cabbage and Japanese purple carrots instead of red dye #whatever.
  7. I like candy.

There are also candy drops available if you think that sucking on a lollipop doesn’t look very grown up!

I bought mine at Whole Foods, but they are also available on my Amazon store.

  1. Don’t you just love The First Candy?! I, too, battled with the candy issues for the exact same reasons you did. We keep a stash of St.Claire’s Organics candy in our home/car/diaper bag, but they only make tart candies (I think they may have expanded their line since we found them in February), and tarts are sort of an acquired taste. Lollipops we have not yet tried, however, and I am so glad to know about this! Thank you! Haircuts are about to get a whole lot easier…

  2. Three words: Oh Glorious Day. I found them today at our Clark’s Nutrition store, and they are everything you said they would be. Thank you for telling us about these!
