We were lucky enough to have samples of Surf Sweets Gummy Bears and Gummy Worms at our March Support Group Meeting. Surf Sweets products are produced in a facility free of: wheat, dairy, soy, eggs, tree nuts, nuts, fish, and shellfish.
This is of course the biggest draw for a food allergy support group that they are free of the top 8 allergens but
Other interesting things to note about Surf Sweets:
~ Surf Sweets are Stage 2 Feingold approved. You can learn more about the Feingold diet at http://www.feingold.org
~ Four of their products are Vegetarian (Fruity Bears, Gummy Swirls, Jelly Beans and Sour Worms). Our Gummy Bears and Gummy Worms contain gelatin so they are not vegetarian.
~Three of their products are Vegan (Fruity Bears, Gummy Swirls, and Sour Worms).
~all of their products are both gluten-free and casein-free. Casein is the protein found in dairy.
How are Surf Sweets different from other gummy candies and jelly beans?
Surf Sweets products are made with natural colors and flavors, organic fruit juice and sweeteners, and provide you with your daily allowance of Vitamin C. We are also one of the only candies made without corn syrup.
They make Gummy Worms, Gummy Bears, Gummy swirls, Fruity Bears, Jelly Beans, Sour Worms. Check out their website for more information http://surfsweets.com/index.php
Everyone seemed to like the taste and texture. Price wise and availability wise these are a great find as well. They are carried at local stores and online and are less then $2.00 a bag at most places.
Here are a few quotes from some of the members:
The boys really liked the gummy bears. They are pretty picky and I like the fact here are no dyes and additives. I really enjoyed the taste and texture as well.

Kids seemed to like the sour ones best. I will be ordering these for the Easter Baskets.

I try to avoid dyes in my kids foods and I like the fact they have to dye in the products.
