I know that I'm a huge hypocrite - usually avoiding additives and colorings in all my food, but when it comes to candy, I tend to turn a blind eye.
Good thing there are actually producers out there that do care. My friend Christina recently did some pro-bono work for a small company called Sjölunda Gård that produces Ekorren candy. (Ekorre is Swedish for red squirrel, by the way) and she gifted me with their entire range. It's entirely organic and natural.
I really recommend the little flowers (flavored with, among other things, peaches and apples) and their gummy berries flavored with lingonberries, blueberries and sea buckthorn. The cola bottles were awesome as well. I only wish they would make more sour candy, as in really, really sour - that's my favorite.
If you see it - pick up a bag or two and support this friendly producer, and get yourself some great candy, too!
