Allergen-Free Snacks for Back to School


Back to school is a busy season for parents and their kids, with crossing off school supply lists, packing lunches, choosing snacks and more.

Gimbal’s Fine Candies, an American based maker of gourmet sweets, brings a varied selection of snacks and sweets that are perfect for back to school, especially since they are free of all major food allergens. Made with great ingredients, like real fruit juices, Gimbal’s candies can be safely enjoyed by parents and students alike.
My Thoughts 

Who said jelly beans are just for Easter? Gimbal's has an assortment of chewy candies that are perfect for anytime of year, including back to school.   You'll find the flavors are very diverse. Some are tangy, some are sweet, and and some are sour.  We got to test about several bags of Gimbals. The first were heart shaped and tasted like cinnamon. These really had a kick to them. There was also one bag that was all sour. Flavors included:

Sour Apple
Sour Blueberry
Sour Grape 
Sour Watermelon
Sour Mango
Sour Cherry
Sour Lime
Sour Lemon
Sour Pomegranate 
Sour Strawberry

The sour was yummy,  but the the others were even better. I loved all the unique flavors. There are too many to list, but these were a few of my favorites:

Wild Cherry
Ice Cream Cake
Strawberry Cheesecake 
Roasted Marshmallow
Kiwi Strawberry Smoothie
French Vanilla
Buttered Popcorn

With so many choices, everyone is bound to find one they'll love. The best part is they are made with real fruit and are gluten and allergy free. These are a great back-to-school snack, but jelly bean lovers will enjoy indulging in them all year long!
