Today’s Shop-Til-You-Drop Saturday Post is all about SWEETS! Whether you want to stock up with healthy rewards for your little ones, treats for your grandchildren, or even for a guilt-free Halloween, there are traditional sweets out there that are NOT made from corn syrup and are preservative and artificial ingredient FREE.
My favorite (so far) is the Yummy Earth brand of suckers. I bought the Vitamin-C variety in a 5lb bag on Amazon.com for $27 (FREE SHIPPING). They have worked really well as rewards for potty training my Fragile X Syndrome child; she gets one whenever she wakes up dry or avoids an accident. I have to admit, I typically don’t like candy and bought them just for the kids…but that didn’t stop me grabbing a few the first few weeks, so we probably put a greater dent in them than I anticipated! Three months later, the 5lb bag is still going strong…although it probably only weighs 2 lbs now (!), so I think it is possible with careful rationing that this bag could last you for 6 months or more. $27 for half a year’s worth of organic, all-natural candy? You’ve got to try them!
