I satisfy my sweet tooth with dark chocolate, maple syrup, raw honey and molasses, but these stand-alones don't work for everyone.
For those with a hankering for candy, getting one's fix and not poisoning oneself are, for the most part, not possible. However, a friend just sent me a link to a YouTube video for UNREAL candy, which doesn't contain corn syrups, partially hydrogenated oils, artificial colorants, genetically-engineered ingredients and preservatives. These, as anyone who has read the ingredient list of a candy bar knows, are the staples of junk food.
UNREAL makes five candies, cleaner versions of M&M's (plain and peanut), Snickers, Milky Way and Reese's peanut butter cups. I had tried UNREAL candy about a year ago but had forgotten about it until my friend's email. Since I am not a candy guy, I am not the best judge of flavor, but I did want to let everyone know of its existence. Only a couple of the ingredients used are organic, but, again, these bars are infinitely better than the other stuff for sale.
