UNREAL Candy – Review

Sharing is caring!

UNREAL™ candy is a better choice for those who want the convenience of a prepackaged sweet treat without all the “junk” commonly used in most of the national brands. (Check out a comparison under black light of UNREAL™ versus standard candy bar on their website.)

When we enjoyed our samples, one of the first things I thought was that the UNREAL™ products tasted more like I remember candy tasting when I was a kid. The peanut butter tasted like peanuts, the chocolate tasted like chocolate. The last time I purchased some of the mainstream brands (even when I purchased another brand of “natural” peanut butter cups), they were sweet, bland and had a rather waxy texture to the chocolate. Not so with the UNREAL™ treats. If I'm going to splurge on eating something sweet, I prefer to splurge on something that tastes good and is “less bad”.

While the UNREAL™ products don't qualify as health food, they do contain less sugar and more fiber than a typical chocolate candy. For example, Peanut M&Ms™ contain 250 calories, 25 grams of sugar, and 2 grams of fiber, while Unreal candy coated chocolate with peanuts contain 200 calories, 16 grams of sugar, and 3 grams of fiber.

I'd like to share a few questions and answers from UNREAL™.

What does “unjunked™” mean?

UNREAL™ is starting with candy, because it’s the worst offender when it comes to “junk” – corn syrup, hydrogenated fats, GMOs, artificial colors, flavors and preservatives. To “unjunk” means to replace all these ingredients with real cane sugar, real milk, more peanuts, and twice the cacao.

What makes UNREAL™ products unique?

Our candies contain no artificial flavors, preservatives or hormones; no GMO’s (genetically modified organisms); no hydrogenated oils; and no corn syrup. Instead, we use real sugar, natural oils, and real milk. Also, you don’t need to travel to a fancy health food store or pay a premium to buy our candy, it’s only available where junk food is available.

Does UNREAL™ use any corn syrup?

Nope. In fact, our candies are 100% corn-free. No corn syrup, no corn oil, no corn in anything we make!

How much does UNREAL™ cost?

All pricing is at the sole discretion of the retailer. As a company, it’s our intention to ensure that UNREAL™ candy doesn’t cost any more than what you’re used to paying for candy.

Where are your products produced?

We make our candy in the US & Canada.

Where can I buy UNREAL™ products?

The product is available all over the U.S. currently in Walgreens, Michaels, and CVS and coming soon to Kroger, Staples, Target, Fred Meyer, Ralphs, Rite Aid, BJs, and Food4Less. At this time we do not sell online so retail only, yet we are working on the online option

What's UNREAL™ candy look like?

Like candy. Since the colors are vegetable based not synthetic, they are different from your typical technicolor candies, but still bright and appealing.

Here are the peanut candies:

Here are the candy coated chocolates:

The caramel and nougat bars have a good layer of each:

The peanut/caramel/nougat bars are loaded with peanuts:

PS – If you're wondering why I'm doing somewhat of a strange mix of giveaways lately, it's because I'm on some eco-mom blogging lists. Next week will have the e- books “Wounds” and “Burns” from the Survival Doctor, after that there's a Mavea water filtration pitcher.

  1. the bottom left is upsidedown and I would love to try them because I am a total chocaholic that has a junk free home.

  2. I would like to try them out because I’m trying to find different ways to allow my husband and kids the treats and sweets we’re used to but with out major cost difference and taste difference. Also it’s the bottom left package. 🙂

  3. Chocolate runs in my blood. When I was growing up, my grandmother kept a list of the four basic food groups in her kitchen:

    -Chocolate cake
    -Chocolate chip cookies
    -Chocolate ice cream
    -Chocolate candy

    My palate is primed for testing this new and better breed of chocolate candy!

  4. I would love to try this candy because I love candy! I always knew that was the one thing that would be tough to give up and even thought of trying to make it myself…yeah not enough time. This looks like a great replacement.

  5. I am a teacher getting ready to go back to school and trying to find healthier choices for eating that are easy to pack & take with me. I feel better if I’m giving my son a sweet treat now and then that is healthier. If these taste good & they are the same price, then I’m sold!! Can’t wait to find out.

  6. The last peanut butter cup is upside down. I have had a MI and several strokes trying to do healthy like sweets and get a lot of enjoyment from contests!

  7. I am so intrigued by this candy! Ever since I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, I have been extra aware of what I am putting into my body. It will be nice to be able to savor something that isn’t loaded down with so many chemicals 🙂 I can’t wait to try these!!

    Also… the upside down package is one of the peanut butter cup ones. 😉

  8. As much as we try to keep our kids away from “junk” food, its hard to resist giving in to a treat every now, so I would love to try these out! Thanks.

  9. That nougat one has my name on it. You are right, candy tastes different now, and not in a good way. I don’t count calories but I do try and limit sweets and junk type foods to a special treat a couple times a week. So I’m not going to eat crap if it IS a treat.

  10. I had given up all hope of eating candy because of all of the junk it contains … I would love to try something that is “unjunked” and still chocolatey and yummy!! The upside down package is on the bottom left of the two columns of candy packages.

  11. I would love to try some of this candy! I generally do not let my kids have conventional candy because it’s loaded with so much junk, so a less processed alternative would be a great way to let them have the occasional sugary treat 🙂

  12. I do have a sweet tooth and while I am partial to M&Ms I think what I would like most to try would be those peanut butter cups. 🙂

  13. With a six-year-old who LOVES candy, we’re trying hard to find alternatives (fruits and veggies from our own garden, raisins and other snackable fruits, etc.) but these might be a great way for us to “treat” him while being a bit more sensible than the usual candy in the stores. We’d love to see if these also past the taste-test of our more-discerning 13-year-old!

  14. The peanut butter cups are upside down, and I’d love to see how much better they’ll taste then their chemical counterparts. 😉

  15. I just saw this in a Walgreens (I think it was) the other day. I hardly ever go there but I remember thinking if I ever have a candy craving, I should go there and try these. Thanks for the chance to try some! And it looks like the package in the middle row on the bottom is upside down 🙂

  16. This looks to good to be true. Would love to have some right now!! Yes, the bottom left pakage of candy is upside-down.

  26. I’d like to try Unreal because every little bit that leads to a healthier lifestyle helps, plus – CHOCOLATE! 😉
    Also, the bottom left candy is upside down.

  30. I am excited to try some unreal candy! If I don’t win I’ll have to go buy some 😉 Middle column, 2nd from the bottom is upside down.

  31. I would love to win some of these for my son. He has major reactions to “bad colors”, and feels left out frequently when he can’t have the fun treats others can have. He would be so excited!

  32. I’d like to try the candy primarily because I am having a huge chocolate fix today. But I’d like my kids to try them because they have adverse reactions to all the crap in conventional candies but I’d still like to indulge them on occasion.

  33. Do you know how hard it is to find candy when you can’t eat corn syrup? I do! Can’t wait to try these.

  34. Awesome candy. I bought a BIG bag at B.J.’s and 2 days later it’s just about gone. I just keep saying to myself…It’s healthy LOL.

  35. I don’t let my kids eat candy because of all the artificial “junk” in it, but I would seriously let my 2 year old try this candy. Can’t wait to get my hands on some!

  36. Trying to clear the house of junk foods and would love to try something that isnt junk and still taste good.

  37. There was an article in Fast Company and now I want to try it. I’ve avoiding normal candy bars because of the sugar. Thanks for posting this!

  38. I have tried your candy. I found it while visiting in Texas. I like it because I am a diabetic and also allerigic to a lot of preservatives. the Peanut nougat bar reminds me of a Snickers which I miss. it is a nice treat.

    Enjoy

  39. The package on the bottom left is upside down, and the reason I’d like to try UNREAL is my grandchildren should be able to eat treats that taste like they did when I was a child. I cook everything from scratch, but that becomes harder each day as GMO fed animals, GMO treated fruits and vegetables, etc. invade our markets, and heirloom seeds become harder and harder to find.
