Food Allergy Friendly, Organic AND Delicious? Surf Sweets Gummy Candies!

I've talked about Surf Sweets nut-free gummy candies on my blog in the past, but now I'd like to welcome this dynamic allergy-friendly candy company as a new ad sponsor for this site! Very exciting because this company was a total "find" for me when we first began searching around for nut-free candy. For some reason, "nut-free" gummy candies are some of the most difficult to locate. And everyone knows how much kids love gummy bears, gummy worms, etc.

Surf Sweets also warm a health-minded mom's heart because they are all-natural and organic. So you don't even have to feel guilty about these, in addition to being nut-free. Talk about serendipity.

Back-to-school time is here and many parents are looking for allergy-safe snacks, so these are a nice little candy to share with friends, teachers and family looking for safe foods. Plus, with Halloween already in the air (can you BELIEVE this already) these little candies are definitely going to come in handy. I remember one school party where my daughter could not have the "spooky Halloween drink" because it was filled with gummy worm candies that had a nut allergy warning. Surf Sweets gummy worms would be perfect for this--so be sure to send some to school. (But don't let the parents eat them all. I've heard from many adults who love them, too.)

Right now, if you pick up some packs of Surf Sweets Sour Berry Bears and Gummy Bears, a portion of the proceeds benefits Climate Cycle – a great local organization that partners with schools to provide education and funding for green projects (bike clubs, solar panel installations, agriculture, etc.).

You can find Surf Sweets at Whole Foods Stores (check the candy aisle) as well as in specialty food shops. Check the company web site and click the "Where to Buy" button. They are also available to order from and Peanut-Free Planet, among other online retailers. Sweet!

Love your blog! We have been a "tree nut allergy" house for just under a year now and your blog has been so helpful and encouraging. Thank you so much for sharing!!

P.S. I will definitely be trying these Surf Sweets gummies - my kiddos will be so excited to have them again! :)

I'm so glad to see Surf Sweets featured here! Not only are they nut-free, they are TOP 8 FREE!!!
They were a huge find for our family and are now a staple treat in our house.

I just clicked over to the peanut-free! I still can't source dried beans and lentils that I'm comfortable with, but having a source for baking chocolate, dried fruit, and assorted whole grains is fantastic. And free shipping over 100 dollars? Excellent. The vegetarian section was good-not all candy and trail mix (not that there's anything wrong with candy and trail mix, but you know, sometimes you want a bowl of curry ;)

Again, thank you for all the great work you're doing, and the help with the day-to-day things that can seem so mind boggling when trying to sort through them. Living in the middle of nowhere, being able to place a large order on-line is a gigantic improvement in our quality of life.
