The brightly colored wrappers and joyful associations with candy can blind you to what's in those appealing bundles. The basic chocolate bar contains far more than cocoa, milk, and sugar.
Here are some things to consider when you're shopping to handle your sweet tooth:
- Avoid artificial coloring.
- Consider candy that uses organic ingredients.
- Pay attention to allergens.
There are candy options available that conform to your lifestyle, ethics and restrictions. You just have to read the wrapper and do a little research.
