  • Unreal Candy

    This should separate the moderates from the zealots on this forum:

    UNREAL | Candy Unjunked

    I love their honesty. Not only do they compare their products to regular candy bars, but they also compare them to pieces of fruit! (Of course, some of you won't even touch a piece of fruit. If that's you...don't bother clicking on the link.)

      Maybe I should change my name to candy-man after seeing that!! Glad to see companies or people trying to get into the food market using as much real ingredients as they can. Who doesn't love candy especially if it is not made with lab ingredients-. Thanks

        It almost seems like a throw-back to the way candy used to be made decades ago, but that's only a guess. Does anyone know what candy was made with back in the '50s? (I suppose someone might be able to find an old candy wrapper in the couch, but they didn't have nutritional labels back then.)

          It's nice to see someone making the effort. I don't have room in my plan right now for such sugar fixes because I'm still losing major weight and have had an unhealthy relationship with carbs. It's the kind of thing I'd pick for a splurge, but eating stuff like this leads reliably to eating more of it, and it takes a week to get back on track. So, I dunno, does appreciating the merits of their approach without rushing to partake make me a 'zealot'?

          Checked the couch. No vintage candy wrappers at all--only some lint, a crumpled Rutherford B. Hayes campaign poster, and this weird penny from 1877 with an Indian chief caricature on it. What a bummer!

              not much of a candy fan, but it kicks ass that someone is making candy without crap being the main ingredient. i wonder if doritos would be willing to get on board with this.

                Using non-GMO corn of a breed not grown in the US? Doritos would never care that much.

                  I am a bit baffled by all of your enthusiasm about this product. It's highly processed, contains processed cane sugar and something called "natural caramel", which in itself is an oxymoron as caramel can't be found in nature. It sounds like they are trying to play on words to make you think it is somehow good for you. Bottom line, highly processed. Isn't that against fundamental principal of the paleo/primal lifestyle?

                    projecting an air of concerned bafflement does certainly appear to be your primary focus here.

                      No, you're not a zealot because you appreciate the effort. I'm referring to the folks who will diss them because it isn't 100% Primal and don't understand that an occasional candy bar will not send you to Hell. Wait a sec...DING! DING! DING! We have a winner with post #9!

                          Consider the source.

                            The source? The source of all things? The undifferentiated ground of being? The Tao?

                              Yep. That source.
