Longtime Yuzen subscribers already know what big Torie & Howard fans we are. We’ve previously featured two flavors of their hard candies in our boxes—Bloody Orange & Honey and Lemon & Raspberry.
The first time we selected their candies for our boxes, it was because of the company’s promise: “We believe that food tastes better when it is made with organic, natural ingredients and responsible principles. We strive to create delicious, tasty, flavor-packed treats that are made in a way that is as health-friendly, eco-friendly and socially conscious as possible.” Then we became hooked, and now we can’t get enough!
So, we have another treat for you… Torie & Howard’s delicious candies also come in a chewy variety, with only 15 calories per piece! If you’ve tried them, you already know they’re absolutely delicious, but you might be wondering about the benefits of enjoying candy that’s organic. The folks behind these fruity bursts of flavor definitely have their reasons—five of them, in fact:
1. They’re organic to help save the planet. Approximately 1/3 of the average consumer’s carbon footprint comes from the contents of their grocery cart. This number could be significantly reduced by choosing organic foods.
2. They’re organic for enhanced nutrition. Organic foods and ingredients contain higher levels of vitamins, minerals. and health-promoting antioxidants.
3. They’re organic to protect wildlife. Chemicals and pesticides used in non-organic farming practices pose asignificant threat to many species of wildlife as a result of direct pollution of their habitats.
4. They’re organic because GMO-free is better. While we still lack a complete understanding of the impacts of consuming geneticallymodified ingredients, there is evidence it could lead to the creation of new diseases, nutritional problems, and unpredictable side effects including allergies.
5. They’re organic because organic means delicious! It’s as simple as this: food tastes better when it’s grown on its own time and in harmony with nature.
Torie & Howard uses only USDA-certified organic ingredients, natural flavors, and all-natural colors, so you can feel good about treating yourself. The candies are also individually wrapped, which makes them so convenient for tucking into your pocket, purse, or backpack for all your on-the-go adventures.
