Lollipop Diet

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!

I'd like a mango tango and a very very cherry but the pucker ones... well, you can have those. With all that "free" what are they made out of... in other words.. what's left? Oh, and are they on sticks?
