The first time I heard of Unreal Candy, I was immediately intrigued.
The story of the company went viral after Tom Brady posted about the candy (and its message). For those who haven’t heard it before, Unreal Candy was impressively started by a 15-year old who was fed up with the way conventional candy was being made. Sick and tired of all the garbage ingredients (including corn syrup) in his sweets, he decided to make his own candy with only organic, non-GMO ingredients.
The results are fantastic and the hype is well-deserved. Unreal Candy tapped into something that is now true across the nation. People don’t want crap anymore – they want products with ingredients that they can get behind! Tom Brady certainly did – and now I am on board too.
As a candy addict, I admit that most of the stuff that I’m putting in my body is bad for me. While it makes me feel good in the short term, I know that long-term the effects can be hazardous. I’m trying to cut it out – but it’s certainly not easy.
Enough! How are the Unreal Peanut Butter Cups?
Getting off my podium for a bit, I find Unreal Candy to be delicious regardless of what’s actually in it. I tried the Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups because the Coconut Peanut Butter Cups were not in stock. They have other flavors too that I will eventually get around to:
- Candy Coated Milk Chocolate Peanuts
- Candy Coated Milk Chocolates
- Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
- Milk Chocolate Crispy Quinoa Peanut Butter Cups
- Dark Chocolate Crispy Quinoa Peanut Butter Cups
- Dark Chocolate Coconut Peanut Butter Cups
- Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Cups
For the peanut butter cups in particular, I was expecting something like a Reese’s ripoff; I was pleasantly surprised to find out that was not the case. Each bag of Unreal Candy contains 8 pieces of half-dollar sized peanut butter cups. Each of them are individually packaged too!
The chocolate and peanut butter both are of great quality. You can eat them guilt-free as the ingredients are fair trade. For dark chocolate fans, I highly recommend you go out and find these. They are at Whole Foods, but you can order a pack online direct from Unreal Candy or you can find them at about just any health food store!
So you’re saying Unreal Candy is unreal…
Overall, if you have a sweet tooth, but are looking for a more sustainable substitute, give these a try. These are by no means “healthy” and they still have a lot of sugar, but they are better than just about anything produced by Big Candy (taste included)!
