Did You Know – The UNREAL truths about what is in some of your favorite candy!


I’ve been a supporter of UNREAL Candy, not only does it taste great, but when I want to give my kids a little treat I don’t feel ‘as bad’ as I normally would. Apparently I’m not the only supporter of this either, some oother supporters are: Dr. Mark Hyman (NY Times best-selling author), Robyn O’Brien (mom & advocate), Matt Damon, Gisele Bundchen and John Legend. These well-known individuals, plus UNREAL Candy Founders Adam Melonas & Nicky Bronner, offer some surprising truths about the food industry.

Created by SoulPancake Co-Founder Joshua Homnick, the following video reveals that ingredients in our candy don’t need to be there — like artificial colors, corn syrup, chemical preservatives, hydrogenated oils and genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

Did you know…
◦ Artificial food dyes like Yellow 5, Red 40 and some other artificial additives in America’s leading candies are banned in countries like the UK and France?
◦ America’s favorite peanut butter cups contain TBHQ, (which is also used as a corrosion inhibitor in biodiesel)?
◦ Candy can be made with lots less sugar and taste better?
◦ That a 13-year-old is helping start a movement for change?

13-year-old Nicky Bronner asked the simple question: “Why do the foods we love the most have to be so bad for us?” Nicky, along with Master Chef Adam Melonas, reinvented America’s favorite candies, replacing all of the junk with real ingredients. The best part – UNREAL is available at retailers like Target, Stop & Shop and other local retailers, for a comparable price as your old favorites. This movement for change can sometimes be as simple as the candy bar you choose (and retailers and manufacturers are watching).

    I have tried this candy and its surprisingly good!

  4. Robin Wilson Says:

    I am flabbergasted. I had no idea those things were in the candy that I ate and up til now really enjoyed. I sure with I had heard of UnReal Candy a long time ago. I just don’t understand why food companies do this to us. But my guess it all boils down to the bottom line. Thank you for this review.

  5. Em Ma Says:

    I haven’t hear of UNREAL candy before reading this post. Very interesting information. I don’t give my kids a lot of candy, but I will definitely be looking into UNREAL candy options those special occasions when they do consume candy.

  6. Richard Hicks Says:

    It is sad that so much candy is not really good for you. I question why the FDA allows it
