I recently reconnected with the folks from Surf Sweets and they sent me Sour Worms, Fruity Bears, Jelly Beans and more to sample.
In addition to their sweet satisfying chew, Surf Sweets also satisfy this picky mom because they are:
- made with organic fruit juice (some products are certified organic)
- made with natural colors and flavors
- gluten and casein free
- vegan and vegetarian
- produced in a nut-free facility
As someone who favors red gummies, I especially like the Fruity Hearts pictured above. The watermelon and cherry hit a sweet spot with me. And they're a perfect low-fat alternative to Valentine's Day chocolates.
Surf Sweets are available at Whole Foods and other fine retailers, as well as from several online retailers. I took a recent visit to the Chicago Children's Museum and would have liked to see Surf Sweets on display there instead of the artificially-colored "neon gummies" they were selling.
