Torie and Howard Organic Hard Candy

by Anne Paddock

Torie & Howard Organic Hard Candies are sophisticated sweets that taste of fresh fruit picked from an orchard so it’s not surprising to learn these candies are crafted from all natural ingredients with no additives, artificial flavors or colors. Certified organic by the USDA, Torie & Howard Organic Hard Candy comes in four luscious flavors – Blood Orange and Honey, Pomegranate and Nectarine, Pink Grapefruit and Tupelo Honey, and D’anjou Pear and Cinnamon.

Each hard candy is  made of organic sugar, organic rice syrup, citric acid and natural flavors ( the essence or extract derived from a spice, fruit or fruit juice, vegetable or vegetable juice..).  With the exception of the D’anjou Pear and Cinnamon flavor which has no natural coloring added), the candies are colored with red cabbage, purple carrots, organic black carrots, organic black currants organic apples, and annatto.

Individually wrapped, each hard candy has a distinctive sweet flavor with no dry aftertaste from artificial sweeteners that hard candies so often have.  Unwrap the candy and enjoy the flavor of naturally sweetened fruit transformed into a candy treat.
