It may be a bit early to focus on Easter, but I figure it’s better to focus on coloring eggs and chocolate treats than my 40th birthday that happens just before Easter. While jellybeans are delicious, I look for healthier options too. I generally prefer our candy without a side of artificial colors and lab created ingredients. Here are a few of our favorite Easter basket worthy treats.
Glee gum assorted mini-boxes: rememeber Chiclets from when we were kids? You’ll love Glee Gum then! Glee Gum is all natural chewing gum made with sustainably harvested rainforest chicle.

Yummy Earth candies: I’m going to go out on a limb and say their lollipops are the best in the world! If you’re looking for hard candies for older kids or yourself, their drops are just as good. While the assorted drops also have my two favorite flavors: mango tango & pomegranate pucker, they also have blood-orange cocktail. Yum! Looking for old-school flavor?
