Whenever you’re looking for a sweet treat that is better for you and for the planet, a brand that may have just what you’re looking for is YumEarth. YumEarth is Sweet on Simple.

YumEarth was founded in 2007. And, according to their site, the candies are made using “simple ingredients and no artificial flavors or coloring, most of YumEarth’s products are USDA Organic, gluten free, non-GMO, free from the top 8 allergens, vegan, and made without high fructose corn syrup…”

“… YumEarth specializes in making organic candy that adults love and parents can feel good about giving to their children.”

They’ve also made sweet choices about their packaging. Most of it is made in a manufacturing facility that’s LEED certified and powered by 100 percent wind-generated electrical energy.

They are working to get all their products certified USDA Organic. And to that end, currently all candies (except gummy bears and worms) are certified USDA Organic with at least 95 percent organic ingredients. All of YumEarth products are gluten free.

The only con of this yummy brand is the packaging. Although, as mentioned above, it’s made in a LEED certified facility, the actual packaging can’t be recycled in most recycling programs.
