That’s right. I threw a candy party, with desserts, at 11am on a Sunday. I suppose it was technically “Brunch” but since it was my first “meal” of the day, I’m calling it breakfast. And it was amazing, or some might say UNREAL!
I love candy, but I am not a fan of artificial sweeteners, artificial colors, artificial flavors, artificial….anything! So when I heard about UNREAL Candy from my friends Jen, Melissa and Beth I couldn’t have been more excited!
And then I got even more excited. UNREAL asked me to host a party with my nearest and dearest friends and family to tell them all about UNREAL Candy! UNREAL sent me all of their amazing candies and I invited my friends over to sample them.
There are 5 different types of UNREAL Candy currently available:
UNREAL 5 (Chocolate Caramel Nougat Bar)
UNREAL 8 (Chocolate Peanut Caramel Nougat Bar)
UNREAL 41 (Candy Coated Chocolates)
UNREAL 54 (Candy Coated Chocolates with Peanuts)
UNREAL 77 (Peanut Butter Cups)
The UNREAL Mission
We believe that all junk food can be made differently, with better ingredients, without junk, with great taste, and at the same price.
UNREAL is “UNJUNKING” our candy!
UNREAL Candy is Made with real cane sugar, and absolutely NO corn syrup. The milk is also free of hormones and antibiotics and comes from happy, grass fed cows. There are no artificial colors or flavors, the dyes used on the candy coated chocolates are all natural and come from things like beets, tumeric and cabbage! They don’t contain preservatives or hydrogenated oils AND they contain more cacao, more protein and more fiber! MORE of the good stuff, and NONE of the bad stuff! Of course, candy is still candy, and it should be a special treat, and not eaten all the time, but if you’re going to eat candy, isn’t it nice to have a “better for you” option?
I wanted to do something more than just hand out candy to my guests so I decided to make the party a dessert party, and I used the UNREAL candies in a few different dishes! We had Brownies with UNREAL 77 (Peanut Butter Cups) crumbled on top, cookies with UNREAL 41 (Candy Coated Chocolates), and little UNREAL 8 (Chocolate Peanut Caramel Nougat Bar) bites in phyllo shells!
I heard nothing but rave reviews from my guests. The UNREAL 77 (Peanut Butter Cups) were a huge hit, and most thought the peanut butter inside was better than the competitor’s. The UNREAL 54 (Candy Coated Chocolates with Peanuts) were also very popular! My favorite was the UNREAL 8 (Chocolate Peanut Caramel Nougat Bar). The peanuts and the caramel are really delicious. I found that the peanuts in the UNREAL products seemed to be of a higher quality than some of the competitor’s.
My guests and I had a great time, sampling candy, eating dessert for breakfast and just spending the day together! And, thanks to UNREAL, all the party guests left with a goody bag filled with UNREAL Candy! I wonder how long that candy lasted (I’m guess some didn’t even make it home!)
I also have to mention, I was SO grateful for UNREAL on my drive back to Rhode Island from Albany, NY. You see, the party was held on the Sunday before Sandy hit the Northeast. I was driving home, and starving, so I stopped off at a rest area. Unfortunately for my growling stomach, due to the storm, their power was out. UNREAL to the rescue!! I had a delicious UNREAL 8 and it gave me just what I needed to make it the rest of the trip home! So, Thanks for everything, UNREAL!
Disclosure: UNREAL Candy provided me with candy for my guests to sample and take home and I was compensated for my time and party expenses. All opinions of their delicious candy are my own.
