Hey all! I have a great review for you today here on StephSnacks. Being that Halloween is practically right around the corner (PS–are you planning to dress up?) I was happy to review a ‘healthier’ version of candy. Halloween kind of kicks off the Holiday season in terms of candy/sweets/junk being just about everywhere — the office, at home, at school, parties, you name it. And while we should all take some time to enjoy it — we also need to be conscious of just how much and exactly what we are eating.
Enter — UNREAL Candy. I was sent a few of their products to try and I was pretty impressed with not only the caloric/sugar stats but the taste as well.
The chocolate candy shell peanuts were so delicious. With 200 calories in a bag, 6g of protein, and 16 g of sugar, I don’t think that’s bad at all for an entire personal bag of candy. They tasted a lot like Peanut M&M’s except Peanut M&M’s have 220 calories, 22 g of sugar, and only 4g of protein.
I also really enjoyed the Chocolate Caramel Nougat. It literally tasted just like a Milky Way Bar and again the statistic were impressive. Only 170 calories per bar, seven grams of fat, and four gram of protein. There are 240 calories in a Milky Way Bar along with nine grams of fat and only two little grams of protein. That’s a pretty nice calorie slash when you’re craving a candy bar!
My favorite product, though, was the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups since I am a mayyjaaa peanut butter lover. For two cups (of which are a pretty decent size) there are 190 calories, 11 grams of sugar, and five grams of protein. The regular Reese’s candies have 210 calories, 21 grams of sugar (whoaaa buddy) and five grams of protein.
All in all, I thought UNREAL candy was awesome. Such a good alternative vs. eating candy that is stuffed to the brim with fat and high fructose corn syrup. I crushed most of the candy up and put some on top of some froyo. Awesome idea, if I do say so myself 😉
Question of the Night: What’s your favorite candy?? I’d have to say mine is Reese’s peanut butter cups. Are you dressing up for Halloween?
