Torie & Howard Organic Hard Candy + Giveaway

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Hi all! Are you candy fans? I have always been a candy fanatic and enjoy gummy bears, skittles, sour patch kids etc.  Clearly they are not the best thing to snack on but sometimes I just have a real craving for them.  I was lucky to find a company that actually makes organic hard candies with magnificent flavours; Torie and Howard bring you all natural satisfaction in the form of a small flavourful candy that has only 12 calories per sweet!

Owner’s Torie and Howard actually became business partners through interior design projects as Howard is an Interior Designer and Torie a Colour Consultant. After working on some impressive design projects, both Torie and Howard faced some health related events that significantly impacted their life. They both had a renewed focus on improving their lifestyles with healthy, nutritious changes on their mind.  Howard lost over 100 lbs and his lifestyle transformed drastically as he made sure that every single calorie consumed was beneficial but still tasty and satisfying.  Torie developed severe food allergies that forced her to change her eating habits and seek healthier snack options so that she could cope. Both their dedication to health and nutrition in their lives led them to developing their own snack food company.  Torie & Howard was born, all out of the love and devotion to achieving all natural and flavourful snacking for healthy foodies alike.

Their hard organic candies come in versatile and unique flavours that make your palette squirm. There are no additives, artificial flavours or colours in these candies! The flavours are: Blood Orange & Honey, Pink Grapefruit & Tupelo Honey, Pomegranate & Nectarine and d’Anjou Pear and Cinnamon. Their candies are actually flavoured with red cabbage, purple carrots, organic black carrot, organic blackcurrant and organic apple!

Of all the flavours, Pomegranate and Nectarine is my favourite.  The flavours are very authentic tasting and are both tart and sweet.  If I am craving sweets, I just pop one of these in my mouth.  Next favourite is Grapefruit, third blood orange, and lastly the cinnamon pear which unfortunately I am not much of a fan of because of the cinnamon flavouring.

Torie and Howard’s promise is:
We believe that food tastes better when it is made with organic, natural ingredients and responsible principles. We strive to create delicious, tasty treats that are made in a way that is as health-friendly, eco-friendly and socially conscious as possible.

They maintain USDA certified organic ingredients, environment-friendly packaging and they donate a portion of their proceeds to two worthwhile causes that are close to their hearts:

Wildlife Conservation Society

  4. Pretty much all candy is my favorite candy :) I didn't start likely chocolate until fairly recently, so I'd probably have to say something fruity and sour, like a lemon drop.

  8. Great looking candies! Although when it comes to candy, chocolate is always the first thing I think of, hard candies really can be so tasty. Plus each one lasts longer than the entire package of chocolate candies! These sound terrific - thanks.

  16. If you only have McDonalds once every six months that's nothing to worry about. I love blood oranges too - so full of flavour. I hope you're enjoying your first day of Spring. It's our first day of Autumn and it's blowing a gale, freezing cold and there's rain, rain and more rain xx

  17. I must admit, I never think to reach for hard candies when I'm craving something sweet... But I'd sure love to try these! Maybe they could change my mind. ;)

    My favorite candy, hands down, are vegan marshmallows. Throw them into any dessert and I've got to have it!
