I never understood why because I always brushed my teeth, but apparently I ate too much candy or something! When I heard about a new candy that is actually good for your teeth and helps REDUCE cavities, I thought it might be a joke… I was so excited when I got the mail this past week and found a box of Cracked Candy to try!

Yes, Cracked Candy is actually GOOD for your teeth! Why? It’s made with xylitol (I had heard that word before but never really knew what xylitol was), which is a natural sweetener found in trees, fruits, vegetables and in our bodies. Studies have shown that daily doses of xylitol help reduce plaque, cavities and even improve tooth enamel. Crazy, right?! Oh, it’s also vegan, diabetic friendly and safe for kids! It’s a win for everyone.

I tried each of the four flavors of Cracked Candy, including mellow orange, peppermint, lemon and cinnamon. I would say the lemon flavor was probably my favorite but they all have a fresh flavor to them! The candy comes in artistic tins and is literally cracked in pieces, so none are exactly the same. The tins are the perfect size to fit in your purse, I love it! I love how Flora, the founder of Cracked Candy, says ““it’s a given that candy makes you happy. I just wanted to make candy healthy.” Read more about her story here and try some Cracked Candy for yourself. 🙂

 

 

FAVORITE VALENTINE’S DAY CANDY

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I wanted to share with you my FAVORITE Valentine’s Day candies! It’s fun being able to enjoy different candies at different times of the year and Valentine’s Day candy is hard to beat. My all-time favorite Valentine’s Day candy is Jelly Belly Petite Sour Hearts. These chewy, teeny tiny hearts pack a punch of flavor – you need to try them to see what I mean! So GOOD! Another favorite are Sour Patch Cherries.I thought I loved Sour Patch Kids, but these are on a whole different level. Finally, I tried Chocolate Covered Swedish Fish for the first time recently and fell in love! The combination of the classic Swedish Fish and chocolate is something I never would have put together but it tastes amazing!

If you are looking to get a special someone something sweet this Valentine’s Day, you can’t go wrong with candy! I found all of these candies online from Weaver Nut Sweets and Snacks and they currently are offering 10% off orders of $25 or more with the code ‘LOVE’. Or, if you are thinking of getting your sweetie a dozen roses, make them chocolate – when you buy 12 chocolate roses, get free shipping!

Hope you all have an extra sweet day!! xoxo
