Easter is coming (om nom nom)

I have a confession to make. I have… a wee bit of a sweet tooth. I know this comes as a complete shock.

Aside from chocolate, my favorite kind of candy is anything gummy and sour, like Sour Patch Kids or Sour Gummy Worms. The problem is that all of these candies are full of the artificial dyes and high fructose corn syrup I otherwise try to avoid. So I can’t say that I never indulge, but I try to keep it to a minimum.

And then—cue the angel chorus, please—I discovered these Yummy Earth Sour Beans. They’re sweet, they’re sour, they’re gummy… and they’re also made from fruit juice and are free of dyes and HFCS. Are they health food? No. Are they less guilt-inducing than neon gummy worms? Yes.

Anyway. I still try to keep the candy to a minimum, but you know, Easter is coming. Think of the children, I tell myself, while clipping the 15% off coupon on the product page and then adding these to my monthly Subscribe & Save order. After the coupon, S&S savings, and tax, I ended up paying $11.85 shipped for 50 servings of jelly beans, which means that’s Easter baskets sorted as well as a replenishment of my office emergency candy stash. Perfect.


  1. I don’t see a subscribe and save option or a coupon on that linked page? Help!

    • Looks like it’s already sold out from Amazon and is now listing as being from a third party seller. Boo!
