UNJUNK™ your Halloween with UNREAL™ Candy


My children are so excited for Halloween.  My son is ready to be a Zombie and my daughter has finally moved on from the Princess stage to be a cute Witch.  There are so many Halloween parties over the next week that they will surely accumulate a nice pile of candy before the big neighborhood raid on October 31st.

I allow my kids to eat a tiny bit of their stash in moderation but the majority is taken away simply because that is a lot of sugar and junk for their system.  Last year we donated a big stash of their candy loot to the army which was a win win for our household and to all the troops who long for a sugar fix while out in the battle field.  This year we will consider UNREAL™ candy.


UNREAL™ candy was borne from a Father who confiscated his 13 year old son's candy the morning after Halloween.  His son was upset that his Father took his candy away and so he did some research online (to prove to his dad that candy isn’t so bad).  He discovered that his dad was right (for once).  His son learned that the worst parts of candy (such as hydrogenated oils, corn syrup, artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives) aren’t there to make it taste good.  They are there to make it cheaper to produce. I can believe this - simply because the bottom line for many companies these days are profit rather than the health of their customers or employees.
 Unreal Candy's mission is to challenge what we have come to accept in our food and its our effect on our health - to unjunk the world.  Read more about Unreal Candy on their website.  The stats below just says it all.


We were excited to host a party for our friends courtesy of UNREAL™ Candy to spread the word and do a taste test!  We hosted a fun Halloween party at our house with Halloween arts and craft, snacks and a movie for the kids.




The Halloween party was a success.  The kids were intrigued by the bright UNREAL™ Candy packaging and immediately ripped open the packaging to reveal familiar looking candy.  Unbeknownst to them, it was the good stuff that could be eaten without worry.  They sure were a happy bunch watching their movie while munching on UNREAL™ Candy and ice cream - a hit for the parents and kids alike.  Especially, for the parents since there was plenty of peace and quiet for us to enjoy our night in.

Tiny Prints 2012 Holiday card collection + Special Offer


Its early but I'm already thinking about Christmas Cards.  I love searching online for wintery themed pajamas for the kids because every Thanksgiving I set up my wintery Christmas tree scene in my hallway and have the kids smile.


When they were babies it was so difficult to get them to sit up, let alone smile.  Each year got a little easier.  I don't have to pay a fortune for sitting fees and photos at the studios I make my own fun Christmas cards through Tiny Prints by downloading a photo onto their website.  The children know the routine by now and so I get the best smiles from them in exchange for a candy cane (yes bribery goes far in my household).

I also download a tongue-in-cheek photo to the inside of my card.  I'm sure my recipients laugh out loud as this is a true depiction of my kiddies characters : )

The hard part is picking a Christmas design from Tiny Prints.  When in the Tiny Prints website simply look for the filters down the left side to help make it easy to narrow down the selection.  There is a lot to choose from in the 2012 collection!

This is my first choice!
The best part is I save these cards every year and I'll accumulate my own makeshift album through the years!
