Make the Swtich to UNREAL Candy This Halloween -- My In-House Party Experience/Review

What were you doing this past weekend?  For my family, we kicked off our weekend by celebrating National Coffee Day on Saturday (stay tuned for my post about this fun in-house party I hosted), and on Sunday we had an UNREAL Candy party.

What is Unreal candy you ask?  It is the best candy my family and friends have tasted and can't  stop raving about.  Also, famous celebs are talking about UNREAL Candy, too.  Just watch this video which features Giselle and Tom Brady, Matt Damon and Jon Legend to name to few.  

So, what is UNREAL candy and how is it different than other candy on the market.

UNREAL™ exists because a thirteen year old boy asked one Halloween why candy needs to be so unhealthy. After an argument with his father, he did a bit of research only to find that candy is filled with bad things like hydrogenated oils and artificial colors and flavors. And what’s worse, he found out that those ingredients don’t make candy taste better, they simply make it cheaper to produce.

Nicky believed that candy without the junk could be made and that it would taste better. And he and his father and brother decided to prove it.
And they did.

UNREAL™ provides many of the great flavor combinations we love in our treats, but without the corn syrup, without the partially hydrogenated oils, without the GMOs, without the artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives, and with 40% less sugar per serving on average. The key ingredients are responsibly sourced, and the candy is available in the stores we all shop, at a price point we can all afford.

With Halloween only a few weeks away, now is the perfect time to pick up UNREAL candy and have on hand for the trick or treaters.  Make sure you pick up extra, as it will be hard for you and your family to resist this oh so delicious candy that is actually good for you!  I know, as we ended up having to buy more candy before the party, as we kept walking by the kitchen and snacking. :-)

As a party host, I was sent a sampling of UNREAL candy to share with my friends and family. To make the party more fun, we had guests bring old Halloween costumes to swap.  When guests arrived, they were greeted by my daughters dressed up in their Halloween costumes, and were then escorted into our family room, which looked like something out of Willy Wonka's factory.  I had a station set up with candy we are used to consuming, in which I displayed their nutritional facts for all to see.  Then, another table contained all the UNREAL candy I was sent to share, with their corresponding nutritional facts.  Guests couldn't get over how much unhealthy extras were added to popular store shelve candy.  What really shocked them was when they sampled Unreal candy for the first time.  Each and every person couldn't believe how great it tasted.  Some commented on less heavy tasting it was, that there was less oil on their fingers and in their mouths after consuming the peanut butter cups and bars, and that Unreal candy was downright chocolaty good!

Just look how good this candy looks close up?

Hungry yet?  You should be!  And, now for the nutritional facts and comparisons, which I shared with guest -- you will be amazed:

We usually don't give candy to our oldest daughter, Savannah, but she couldn't help but get in on the fun taste testing.  Here are some shots I took of her before the party began.  I asked her to watch the candy while I ran to get the bags for samples.  Before I returned, she was counting the candy she had opened in a bowl.  Her chocolate smile was priceless!

Our in-house party was a huge hit.  Not only did guests get to sample this new UNJUNKED and UNREAL candy, but they also left with a Halloween costume to wear thanks to our costume swap.  We all made a pact to offer only Unreal candy on Halloween night.  Now that we know how healthy this candy is and how great it tastes, we hope other parents will learn more about it when they see it in their children's trick or treat bags and read the label.  They will be shocked and pleased that other parents are looking out for their children's health, but offering a much more healthy alternative to junk candy. Don't believe me?  Try an in-home taste test comparing popular candies and the newly invented UNREAL candies?  You will be amazed at how good the UNREAL candy really is -- I guarantee you :-)!

Please join me, along with countless others supporters of Unreal candy, and offer this candy on Halloween night.  You will feel good in knowing that the candy you are handing out is good for you.  Learn more about how you and your family can join the UNREAL™ Nation at and by visiting the UNREAL Fan Page on Facebook --
