As the Strangelove, BowWows and Aaron Carter all sang, “I Want Candy“. It’s the theme at my house with my kiddos. We all love candy, but I’m not a fan of all the refined sugar, high fructose corn syrup and color additives. I partnered with GoOrganic and their line of organic candy, GoOrganic hard candy.
I appreciate that it is organic, gluten-free, contains no additives, artificial color, artificial flavors and no high fructose corn syrup. GoOrganic Hard Candy is hand-made and naturally sweetened with cane juice and brown rice syrup rather than refined sugar.
Inside each pouch, the candies are individually wrapped. I love this as it gives me more freedom to tuck into lunch boxes, pockets, and purses and not worry about sticky–because sticky is not cool.
Each candy is about the same size as a US nickel.
They are about the same thickness as four US nickels.
If you can savor the flavor, rather than chomp them, they last a very long time and have a smooth texture. They are pretty darn good!
Go ahead, have one of each. There’s no artificial stuff and no gluten!

My absolute favorite is the GoOrganic Ginger Hard Candy. I love ginger and think this candy rocks the flavor. It’s the perfect amount of spice!
The Apple hard candy has a very subtle sour apple flavor. it’s tangy with the granny smith apple tartness. It’s a nice flavor.
The Cherry surprised my kiddos because it isn’t really red. Almost everything they have encountered called “cherry” has had a very red hue. This one is browner–it reminded me of my mother canning cherries when I was growing up and the color of them in the jar basking in their natural colors. The flavor is very, very good.
We all loved the Honey hard candy flavor. It was just the right sweetness. it is light and Li’l Man said it was like eating honey from the jar. (Yeah, I didn’t know he did that either!)
The Honey Lemon flavor was smooth and light like the honey with a hint of lemon. It is perfectly paired so it’s not too sweet and not too tart. It’s just yum!
I’m all about Pomegranate and this flavor does not disappoint. It’s very lightly tart and a very subtle sweetness that lets the pomegranate flavor come through incredibly well.
If you’re counting calories or looking at nutrition, four pieces of the GoOrganic hard candies are 60 calories, 0 grams of fat, 15 carbohydrates, 0 grams of fiber, 10 grams of sugar and 0 grams of protein.
This is CLEAN candy, containing no trans fats, no preservatives, no corn syrup, no FD&C colors and no hydrogenated oils. The line has a 2-year shelf life, is gluten free and Kosher.
The GoOrganic line also includes Chews!
We tried the Ginger flavor and the Fruit Flavored GoOrganic Chews.
They are individually wrapped.
Each chew is about one inch in length and the thickness of about four US nickels.
The chews are soft. My kiddos think the Fruit Chews taste a lot like Starburst, but “not as hard and sticky”. They are really enjoyable.
GoOrganic Fruit Snacks
These fruit snacks come in a 3-ounce pouch. The pouch is not resealable, which is not my preference. The fruit snacks themselves are soft, moist and have a little bit of chew to them. My children really love them.
Adults and kids can feel good about having GoOrganic as a wholesome treat.
