UNREAL Candy Review

I was recently given a coupon for a free piece of UNREAL candy. (I am a BzzAgent; I get a free sample or a coupon for a product, along with coupons to share. For more info on BzzAgent, check out my Freebies For Adults post!) I had seen the colorfully wrapped candies at some of the local stores, but hadn't tried them before. I also didn't know too much about them, so I went on their website and did some reading. The UNREAL brand is made with less sugar and the colors come from natural plants (purple and red from beets, orange from achiote tree seed, yellow from turmeric root, blue from cabbage, green from cabbage and turmeric root). It also has no preservatives, corn syrup, partially hydrogenated oils, GMO's (genetically modified organism), artificial colors or flavors.

I chose the UNREAL8 ($1.19 at Michael's), the equivalent to a Snickers. I also bought a Snickers bar to do a side by side comparison (purely for research purposes only, of course). The Snickers bar was slightly bigger and definitely had a sweeter taste. The UNREAL8 bar had more of a subtle sweetness. You could taste more of the flavors instead of just a super sweet taste like the Snickers. I cut the bars up and gave a piece of each to the boys. They loved both of the candy bars; they didn't even notice a difference between them! I will definitely buy the UNREAL candy again and can't wait to try the other varieties!

Here's a chart of the nutritional information:

Here is an adjusted chart of nutritional info. I adjusted the info to make the UNREAL8 bar the same size as the Snickers.


*These are just my opinions. I receive free samples from BuzzAgent, but am in no way compensated otherwise.


  1. I had never heard of UNREAL brand candy. It's nice to know about it and I will definitely give it a try!

  2. Is this already available in the market? I'd like to try it.

  3. It is out at a lot of stores. You can click http://getunreal.com/find-unreal-candy/ to see the different stores. Target is supposed to start carrying it in October.


I love to hear from you! I promise I read every comment, but I don't always remember to respond to each one.
