GoOrganic candy was provided to facilitate this review; all opinions are my own.
Made by the Hillside Candy Co, GoOrganic Candies are made in the USA, Organic; Non-GMO certified, Gluten-free, Kosher, and Allergen friendly. I’ve been enjoying their candies for years having first discovering them in bulk at The Natural Candy Store. While their chewy candy has been my favorite in the past, I’m now adding their hard candy to my list of favorites as well
Their candies are available in a standard 3.5 oz bag, a family size, and in bulk so you can find a bag that’s right for you. I suggest the GoOrganic Assorted Gluten Free Hard Candies for your first try. It’s a mixed bag that includes my favorites – Honey Lemon, Pomegranate, Cherry, and Apple. The flavors are smooth and clean and so fantastic and don’t worry; they are available separately as well.
I had avoided honey lemon in the past because I was afraid of a cough syrup like taste. I was so wrong! They’re the perfect flavor combination, and it’s the first one I look for when a new bag arrives (I have these on Amazon’s Subscribe and Save program – they sent me a bag automatically every month, and I save 15%!)
My least favorite flavor is honey, but that’s a personal preference. If you love the taste of honey, this is a candy you’ll enjoy. And if you like a candy that can pack a punch, you’ll love the Ginger Xtreme. It’s made with natural ginger oil and gets its kick from organic cayenne powder. To be sure, it’s a candy that grabs your attention from the moment you pop it into your mouth.
GoOrganic also makes fantastic Fruit Chews. So wonderful in fact that I ate them all before I could photograph them. I have them on order now because their texture and taste are pure perfection. Plus they’re Vegan and made from Organic brown rice syrup, organic evaporated cane syrup, organic palm shortening, natural flavors, organic rice extract, organic corn starch, organic beet juice powder, organic lemon flavor, organic strawberry flavor, organic curcumin, citric acid, ascorbic acid.
They taste better than their non-organic leading candy competitor, and I don’t feel guilty enjoying them because they don’t have anything artificial in them. I prefer the Fruit Chews (Apple, Lemon & Strawberry), but their GoOrganic Chocolate Ginger Chews are a nice change, though a bit on the heavy side when it comes to the ginger taste for me. The Ginger Chews, on the other hand, are fantastic and refreshing.
In addition to the Fruit Chews, GoOrganic has created you’ll be glad to share with your kids! But I won’t tell if you don’t, they’re good enough keep to yourself. Plus they’re made from the same quality ingredients as all of GoOrganic’s candies, and they have a fabulous texture and flavor.
All GoOrganic products are created without added colors, use all natural flavors and are made with sugars that are less refined and more natural including organic evaporated cane juice and organic brown rice syrup. But far from tasting like some healthy candy that’s too far removed from the junk candy we grew up on, these candies are delicious and every bit as good as any other sweet confection out there, only they’re made with much better ingredients.
