Yum Earth treats were created with a few ideals in mind; “YumEarth is dedicated to making delicious treats with all-natural ingredients, no artificial colors, no artificial flavors, no high fructose corn syrup, and no major allergens, such as gluten, nuts and dairy”. This can be quite a lofty goal considering most candy is high fructose corn syrup wrapped in an artificial flavor, artificial color shell. The flavor of which is often not found in nature. But Yum Earth flavors are fruity and sweet, with a much more subtle flavor instead of the red that tastes like red, you get very very cherry which actually tastes like cherry. The ingredients or rather the amount of junk not included in a Yum Earth products is quite extensive. Makes you really think about what goes into your foods and snacks.
