Tazzy Candy – no sugar added but plenty of flavor
We all, well most of us, crave something sweet from time to time. Tazzy Candy is a unique company that makes several delectable flavors of lollipops that are all sugar free. And to add to that, they are gluten free kosher, vegan, and made in the USA. You can’t get any better than that.
Friends Delia Hughes and Lindsay Simon founded this unique company. “Our obsession with candy started over 10 years ago, when Delia and I met in college,” said Lindsay. “We were studying Food Science and became close friends after joining a candy laboratory for school credit. We were always brainstorming products we would create if we ever owned our own candy business, but as many college graduates do, we entered the corporate world.”
“We found ourselves returning to the candy world. We were hard core candy lovers, but also getting into health & wellness, which is a conflicting combo to say the least,” Delia added. “Lindsay would buy “better-for-you” candy and complain they lacked flavor and had funky textures. My issue was I always ate snacks too quickly. We were just never satisfied.”
“And finally, after countless kitchen nightmares and late nights, we had a product that was juicy, delicious, and long lasting. So, we took a leap of faith, left our corporate jobs, and launched Tazzy Candy,” said Lindsay.
And the flavors they came up with are very interesting. With packages of sour watermelon, spicy mango and a combo package with lemon, mango, acai berry, and pink grapefruit, they have a collection of flavors for everyone. And they are working on more goodies to be produced soon.
While little kids might not enjoy the sour watermelon or the spicy mango, parents will definitely feel good about giving their kids the lemon, mango, and pink grapefruit lollipops. They are individually packaged in each packet so this is a great way to make Halloween a little healthier this year when small ghosts and goblins visit your home.
Sugar free, gluten free, kosher, natural flavors and colors, vegan, and made in the USA are good reasons to try these hard candies. But there is one more reason. This women-owned company will donate 10% of the proceeds from the Acai Berry packages to Metastatic Breast Cancer Research.
