It might seem like mission impossible, but you can totally satisfy your sweet tooth while sticking to a vegan and organic diet. Just ask YumEarth, the candy company that makes tasty treats using all natural ingredients.
The seeds of YumEarth were first planted in 2005 when friends and founders Rob Wunder and Sergio Bicas – both of whom follow a strict organic lifestyle – were trying to figure out how they were going to let their children have lollipops while avoiding the chemicals found in most supermarket confections. After much trial and error, they developed a recipe that uses all-natural ingredients and fruit extracts which are sourced from eco-friendly farms. The pops were a hit with kids (and grown-ups!) and YumEarth soon added other products to their menu, like gummy bears and fruit snacks.
Sergio is right when he says “Organic candy doesn’t have to taste like cardboard”. In fact, YumEarth’s delights are even better than their chemical-laden counterparts. The suckers have kid-approved names like Wet-Face Watermelon and Strawberry Smash and there are also a few surprisingly sophisticated flavors like Mango Tango and Pomegranate Pucker. They taste very authentic, like hard-candy versions of real fruit, and are certified organic, 100% vegan, and free of dairy, peanuts, soy, and gluten. YumEarth also avoids lab-made dyes – the red, purple, and yellow pop shades are all derived from real fruit extracts, so they look as good as they taste.
