I've been on a diet the past 2 months. My doctor insisted; she was quite adamant, in fact. For the most part I've been behaving myself and as a result I've gone down from 228 to 194.
However I still love sweets and now that my weight is approaching normal (I actually need to hit 183 before my BMI is officially normal) I want to add some candy back into my diet. I still want to avoid fructose as much as I can, ie high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) which complicates things a mite since HFCS is in so much candy.
So when I noticed that Amazon is running a 20% off coupon code special on YummyEarth lollipops ("YUMET924") I had to pick up a 5 lb bag.
YummyEarth is a small company that makes organic candy that is free of corn syrup as well as being gluten-free, GMO-free, egg-free, soy-free, nut-free, casein-free, and dairy-free. *whew* But despite that word "free" occurring so often they're not free-free. On the YummyEarth website a 5 lb bag of assorted flavor lollipops runs $32 whereas on Amazon they go for $19.81.
That's a substantial savings but it gets even better. If you use that coupon code I mentioned above and also subscribe to get the lollipops on a recurring basis (for a further 15% discount) the total price drops to $12.88 and shipping is free. That's $2.56 per pound. Still not cheap but a great price for organic candy of this quality.
I'm not too sure about the flavors though. They consist of a mix of Sour Apple Tart, Pomegranate Pucker, Mango Tango, Too Berry Blueberry, Googly Grape, Strawberry Smash, Very Very Cherry, and Wet-Face Watermelon. A little kid-oriented, I think. But worth a try!
