5 Reasons to Buy Allergy Friendly Candy this Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is an opportunity for everyone to mindfully enjoy their favorite candies while celebrating their loved ones with candy gifts and cute messages. At Wholesome, we believe no one should be left out of Valentine’s Day fun –  including those with food allergies! Surf Sweets candy is free of the Top 10 most common food allergies, which means that you won’t need to worry about someone getting left out. Here are 5 reasons to buy allergy-friendly candy this Valentine’s Day, as well as our recommendations for sweet treats that most of your child’s classmates can enjoy.


Make it easier for your fellow parents.


Nothing has the potential to stress out a parent faster than thinking that there might be food that’s not safe for their child to eat. You’ll frequently hear about this on holidays like Halloween, when parents are reading every candy label their children receive.  Help your fellow parents out by offering Surf Sweets Gummy Worms, which is a new twist on an old favorite.


Make it easier on the school staff.


Children with food allergies or food dye intolerances require special care, especially in school settings. Handing out candy that is already allergy friendly makes things so much easier and doesn’t leave any child out of the fun. This Valentine’s Day, give out our Wholesome Organic Heart Lollipops! Made in a peanut- and tree-nut-free facility, certified gluten free, colored with fruit juice, and filled with delicious Cherry and Watermelon flavors, these lollipops are the perfect sweet to hand out to the ones you love!



Make kids happy!


It’s heartbreaking to see a child who can’t enjoy a treat that their friends might be able to. By giving Surf Sweets Candy, you’ll be able to give treats that almost all can appreciate. Because it is free of the top 10 food allergens, certified organic and vegan, Surf Sweets Organic Fruity Bears is the perfect candy for a Valentine’s Day celebration!

Organic options everyone can love.


If you’re concerned about having organic treats around for your child, we can help. Whether you’re looking for a great snack to share with the family or a treat for yourself, we know that you’ll be delighted to share the love with our gluten-free  Wholesome Organic DelishFish.
