I was thrilled when I got the opportunity through BzzAgent to review the UNREAL candy. I absolutely love the concept of the candy being “UNJUNKED” by having no corn syrup, partially hydrogenated oil, artificial ingredients, preservatives, GMOs, and a low glycemic index. No other candy out there offers all of that. They have five candies on the market: Chocolate Candy Shell Peanuts (Equivalent to peanut M&Ms), Chocolate Candy Shell (equivalent to M&Ms), Chocolate Carmel Nougat (equivalent to Milkyway), Chocolate Caramel Peanuts Nougat (equivalent to Snickers), and Chocolate Peanut Butter (equivalent to Reese’s).
I decided to try three of the candies so that I could give a good enough review. I was able to find these candies at CVS although they are more difficult to find then their popular name-brand equivalents because they are only at limited amount of locations. The price is pretty comparable to the name brand equivalents. I tried the Chocolate Candy Shell (equivalent to M&Ms), Chocolate Caramel Peanuts Nougat (equivalent to Snickers), and Chocolate Peanut Butter (equivalent to Reese’s).
Chocolate Candy Shell (equivalent to M&Ms) Review:
I really didn’t care for the Chocolate Candy Shell and would definitely prefer the M&Ms over that. The candy tasted fine at first but then it had a strange after taste to it that I didn’t care for. Although, my two year old daughter did loved them.
Chocolate Caramel Peanuts Nougat (equivalent to Snickers) Review:
I absolutely LOVED the Chocolate Caramel Peanuts Nougat and would prefer it over the equivalent Snickers bar. The chocolate on the candy was not as sweet as the Snickers bar and therefore it allowed all of the other flavors to shine through and combine nicely.
Chocolate Peanut Butter (equivalent to Reese’s) Review:
The Chocolate Peanut Butter candy pretty much tasted the same as a Reese’s. Therefore, for the availability I would choose the Reese’s but for the nutritional quality I would choose the UNREAL version.
All-in-all the candy was good. The biggest thing deterring me from purchasing this would be the ease of accessibility as it is not in very many stores yet, although I am sure that will change as it grows in popularity. I will definitely purchase the Chocolate Carmel Peanuts Nougat again and would love to try the Chocolate Carmel Nougat the next time I purchase one of the UNREAL candy bars.
