***Ended*** Yummy Earth Giveaway! Yum!

THIS CONTEST HAS ENDED!!!

I'm so excited about this giveaway because Yummy Earth is one of my all time favorite companies!

I have been a huge fan of their products for years! Seriously, I almost cried when I tasted my first mango tango and thought "I can't believe my son will be able to eat this awesome candy!" They are organic; allergen-free; gluten-free; GMO-free; egg-free; soy-free; nut-free; casein-free; dairy-free, and made all-natural with fruit extracts; red cabbage and purple carrots for color; and no artificial dyes or flavors. Not only are they safe for almost all children with dietary issues, they are the best tasting candy I've ever had - I'm addicted to the Mango Tango myself. I've never met a person who didn't like them, all the kid's friends beg for them when they come over. (The parents do too!)

 I keep them in my purse to trade my kids when they receive candy from banks and medical staff. I think the best day of my life was when I had ordered a container of suckers from Amazon and they somehow sent me two instead (But only charged us for one.). I called them to ask if we should send the other one back and they said "Nah, just keep it." Our whole family jumped up and down with joy!! My son gave the second container to his doctor and said "This is for all the kids like me, who can't eat your yucky ones." lol

  Yesterday, we went to buy fireworks and they had a bucket of dum-dums and the lady asked if my kids could have one and I said "No way! Here, how about WE give YOU one of OUR suckers and see which tastes better?" :-)

 When we traveled to the UK and only took 2 bags each...guess what my bag was filled with? Yep, Yummy Earth Suckers! The grape ones were a huge hit there because the locals had never heard of anything being grape flavored! That's right....no grape anything. Instead they had black current flavored candy. Which was...odd tasting to say the least.

Oh and we also found that these suckers work great at preventing car sickness!  Alex and I get car sick, well we did in AR, the roads are so straight here that we are "cured" for the time being, but in AR it was horrible but as long as we were sucking on one of the sour lollipops....we were fine!

Yummy Earth was started by 2 dads and has always been all about pleasing the customers. They really listen to their feedback and give parents exactly what they need for their children.

I'll never forget the day that we bought a bag of mixed flavors, and the kids were so excited and dividing  up all the flavors and...oh no!....the bag said there was supposed to be wet-faced-watermelon but there wasn't a single one! They were crying and upset and my oldest said "Can you email them and asked them what happened to the wet-faced-watermelon?!" I didn't really expect a reply but went ahead to appease the children and....was so surprised when Rob himself (Co-Owner) emailed me back and said to tell the kids they could stop crying because he was sending them some watermelon suckers! I knew right then, I'd never buy another brand.

I even used them last year to make Jarod a candy bouquet for his classroom birthday party. The whole class LOVED it!


The flavors are just out of this world with names like Pomegranate Pucker, Too Berry Blueberry, Mango Tango, Strawberry Smash, Googly Grape. Very Very Cherry, Sour Apple Tart, and Wet Face Watermelon...how can you NOT love them? They can be found online at Amazon (I buy them in bulk!) or at most any health food store. (The health food store in Grand Rapids even has them!)


When I decided to dedicate this month to reviews of foods that are safe for children with allergies, of course I knew I'd be including Yummy Earth. I also decided to email the company and see if they'd like to offer a giveaway....and Rob emailed back and said they sure would!

The GRAND PRIZE winner will receive, straight from Yummy Earth, a 5oz bag of gummy bears and a 3oz bag of Fruit Lollipops!

And then I will pick 3 winners and I will send each one an envelope containing 5 lollipops from my stash! (You know I love you if I'm willing to give up my precious suckers!) I can address them to your children if you'd life, kids love to get mail!

  2. Mary,

    THEY HAVE GUMMY BEARS AND WORMS? Tobit hasn't ever gotten to have them because we can never find nut/gluten free versions.

    Wow, you've rocked our world.
    (oh, and I liked your blog on facebook as well.)

  4. We are a big fan of YummyEarth suckers. (Interesting side note, we are in MN too!) My youngest child's favorite topic is talking about suckers. We like the gummy bears too, haven't tried the gummy worms yet though. I think they need to make the root beer candy flavor in a sucker. Thanks for such a fun contest!

  5. I want to try the chilli pepper ones... or the mint drops.

    We LOVE the lolly pops, they are the only kind of candy my son can eat (he is allergic to EVERYTHING), but they are hard to find here! I would love to have some to give him when all of the other kids in his dance class get dum dums and he gets nothing!
