Hey there everybody! I’ve got another review today! Yay!!
Like most kids, my little one loves candy. But, it’s challenging to find safe candy free of milk and egg. I was used to buying the Spangler Dum-Dum lollipops once we allowed my son to start eating candy. So, I was super excited to discover these gummy snacks made by Spangler. In case you weren’t aware, Spangler candy products are free of the top common allergens ( http://www.spanglercandy.com/faqs/allergen-information. This statement is directly from their website. The package of their candy does contain an allergen statement, and their website has a lot of information about their products being allergen-free and their site states that their manufacturing facilities are 100% free of gluten (from wheat, barley and rye), dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, fish and shellfish. Now there is a note about Soy, because their products, except Circus Peanuts, may contain Soy oil. So, if Soy is a concern for you, definitely make the best decision for your or your loved one’s safety. Personally, I always decide against products that say “may contain..” milk, or eggs. Even though it only says “may”. I just don’t want to take any chances…(call me overly-cautious if you want… I’m used to it) They do caution on their website that sometimes retailers will re-bag items, and so the allergen claim may be different. But, bags that are manufactured and packaged in their facility will have the Spangler allergen statement. I encourage you to go to the Spanglercandy.com website for more information.
My son LOVES these, and so do I. They’re so tasty!
I love all the bright festive colors on the package. The design is very fun and fruity with a cartoon picture of the little Spangler guy (I guess that’s who that is) and a picture of the actual package of gummies that are inside the box. And of course, I love the allergen statement that is clearly printed on the box in text, and they use little pictures of the allergens as well with a line going through them to indicate that the product is free of that allergen. That’s an additional form of communication and I love that. Even if you cannot read the word, you can understand the image. Niiiiice!
Very good! They have a nice texture, not too hard, not too soft, juuuuuust right. Sometimes I have found that some gummy products are either-or, but these really do have the perfect texture for a gummy candy. They’re not waxy at all. And they come in fruit shapes. Cute! The flavor is also very fruity, with a nice sweet-tarty mix.
Not bad, really. I can get them for around 2.79 on sale. Typically they run about 3 dollars for a box. You get 10 packs in each box, so it’s a pretty good value, I think. There’s about 8 gummies in each little baggie. Which is a perfect serving in my opinion. Okay I’ll admit, occasionally I let my son have 2 baggies….(hey, I’m an allergy mom… sometimes I’m so happy when he can have a safe “normal” snack like everyone else that I give in a little when he asks for seconds. Don’t judge me.)
So in conclusion…Do I think they’re yummy? Yes. Do I recommend them? Yes. Do I plan on purchasing them again? Yes. (I purchase them all the time actually.)
Have you tried these out yet? If so, let me know what you think.
