I recently received samples from Indie Candy out of Mountain Brook, Alabama. Those of you that follow me regularly have come to know that I have a tremendous sweet tooth and love candy of all kinds.
I was intrigued by this company because not only are they gluten-free but also free from the Big 8 allergens as they call them on their packaging. Their products are produced in a facility that is free of: gluten, casein, tree nuts, shellfish, soy, and eggs. I received their all natural dark chocolate Santa lollipop, Pineapple snowflake lollipop, and lime flavored holiday tree gummi candies.
First up the chocolate Santa. This was truly a stand out among chocolate I have come across. It was the perfect balance of sweet paired with the wonderful bitterness of the dark chocolate. It was rich and creamy and absolute chocolate heaven.
Next came the holiday tree gummis. I love all things gummi and was tickled to see these among Indie’s product line-up. The first thing you noticed about these is the flavor – they taste like a fresh lime vs. some artificial imposter. I was really so impressed by these. They have the perfect soft texture and packed such a flavorful punch without being too sweet.
Rounding out the sampling was their old fashioned sugar lollipop – in snowflake form. Now don’t let its clear color fool you. At first lick you will notice a wonderfully tangy pineapple flavor. It was such a surprise and just goes to show you that natural flavors really make a huge difference.
