Tasty Brand

                                          Organic Snacks for kids 2-102
                                                    www.tastybrand.com
Tasty Bite has quickly risen to the top to become the clear winner all gummies in our house.  Even my older brother (who doesn't usually like candy...at..all...)really liked these!  After approx. 2 weeks (I think), all the boxes are gone!  I'd say that is pretty strong evidence that something has proved quite tasty.

Made with all natural fruit juice (along with a few other ingredients), Tasty Brand manages to create a delicious gummy without any GMOs, artifical colors and flavors, or the big one...High Fructose Corn Syrup. 

Please note that they do contain organic cane sugar (so be careful if you or your child is diabetic). But besides the sugar, these snacks are a great treat to have on hand for busy school days, long car rides, or for an everyday snack. 

One the great things about these gummies is the fact that they are gluten-free.  During this no-gluten for a month challenge, S especially was concerned about leaving behind all his favorite foods, but thanks to the help of Tasty Brand Gummies, he has adjusted very well and seems to (perhaps?) even be enjoying this break from gluten.

BelI have below a bit from their website on why many choose to avoid the food additives that are not in Tasty Brand's Gummies.  I love how they keep this helpful information kid friendly and simple.  Check out their website for the images that go alond with the information.  Also, you can find even more information about the Good Guys, other products and flavors, and more through their site: www.tastybrand.com.
 
"Bad Guys
When GMOs & Pesticides pollute our crops, bee hives collapse and nothing can
thrive ... And when spooky scientists in lab coats add Artificial Colors, High Fructose Corn Syrup & Trans Fats, our food becomes dangerous and we feel tired, obese and sick
...
GMO
#1 on our Most Wanted list is GMO, AKA “Dr. FrankenFood.” In a
lab experiment gone terribly wrong, this evil doctor found devious
ways to genetically modify organisms by changing plants & animals
through gene-splicing. Merging DNA from different species has led
to unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacterial & viral genes
that cannot occur in nature ... and now it’s just a matter of time until
this bad guy takes over our food chain forever.
High-Fructose Corn Syrup
Using the moniker HFCS, this gooey guy is out to fatten us up & slow us down.
Lurking in almost every highly-processed food & beverage, including breads,
cereals, breakfast bars, lunch meats, yogurts, soups, condiments, sodas, candy
& more, HFCS is classified as safe by the FDA, but studies have linked him to obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes & liver disease.
Artificial Colors
Bad boy Artie Ficial just likes to have fun. His motto is, “why ruin a good party?”
and he doesn’t care who gets hurt by his wild coloring ways. While vibrant
foods may look cool, the chemicals Artie uses have been linked to everything
from ADD and ADHD to cancer. Killing motor neurons and causing tumors,
hives, migraines, rashes, asthma, allergic reactions is not our idea of a party."-tastybrand.com
