How Safe Is Lovely Candy?

Lovely Candy products are certified gluten-free by the Gluten Free Certification Organization (GFCO), therefore the products are tested to be under 10 parts per million (ppm) gluten.

No Soy, Corn, Wheat, Gluten, or Anything Artificial!

I know many of you avoid high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), and others, any type of corn syrup. Whether you avoid corn because of GMO, allergies, intolerance, or just plain good health, Lovely Candy has you covered. In addition, many of you avoid soy due its ability to increase estrogen, even in males. If you have a child, or yourself for that matter, who avoids artificial ingredients, no worries there either.

Allergen Warnings

Lovely Candy is manufactured on equipment used to process Dairy, Peanut, Almond, Walnut, Pecan, Nutmeg and Soy Protein.


Lovely Candy Original Chewy Caramel

INGREDIENTS: Brown Rice Syrup, Sweetened Condensed Whole Milk [growth hormone-free] (Milk, Sugar), Butter, Dried Cane Syrup, Molasses, Vanilla and Sunflower Lecithin.

I really enjoy these! They are chewy, but they don’t annoyingly stick to your teeth. Eventually, they just melt away into your mouth. Yum!

Lovely Candy Chocolate Caramel Swirl

INGREDIENTS: Brown Rice Syrup, Sweetened Condensed Whole Milk [growth hormone-free] (Milk, Sugar), Butter, Dried Cane Syrup, Palm Oil, Chocolate Liquor, Molasses, Vanilla, Sunflower Lecithin.

These little gems are the best of both worlds! – chewy caramel and chocolate. It was funny. I kept eating a plain caramel alternating with a chocolate one to determine which I enjoyed the most. However, I kept changing my mind, and then just couldn’t decide. They both were so good. What an excuse, right? Needless to say, I enjoyed them both.

Lovely Candy SuperFruit Chews

INGREDIENTS: Brown Rice Syrup, Dried Cane Syrup, Palm Oil, Freeze Dried Blueberry, Freeze Dried Cranberry, Freeze Dried Raspberry, Citric Acid, Natural Flavors and Sunflower Lecithin.

Imagine a Starburst candy, but packed with antioxidant fruit, and a bit of tang from the berries. The sweetness of the brown rice syrup balances it all out perfectly. I felt like a kid again, and my husband and I ate the entire bag!

In addition, these lovely candies are vegan as well as gluten-free.

Lovely Candy Assorted Fruit Chews

INGREDIENTS: Brown Rice Syrup, Dried Cane Syrup, Palm Oil, Freeze Dried Apple, Freeze Dried Blackberry, Freeze Dried Cherry, Citric Acid, Natural Flavors and Sunflower Lecithin.

It was fun guessing which candy was which was flavor. I seriously didn’t find one flavor that I didn’t enjoy. The apple flavor is very pleasant and unique. Another healthier than Starburst winner!

Again, these are vegan, too!

  55. I would love to be entered into this awesome contest. I’m 21 and was diagnosed with celiac disease when I was only 2. Ive had to live gluten free ever since. I know many can back me up with saying it’s hard to find already made gluten free products that actually taste good and are not ridiculously overly priced. I’m now in college so I “get” to purchase my own food…. being on a college budget makes it hard to buy candy. With that said I’d love to win some. Oh and of course I’d share with my awesome mom who is gluten intolerant ;)

  56. I’d love to win. We’ve been corn free for about 4 yrs (youngest is allergic to corn) and rarely have candy treats. Thank you :)

  57. I would love to win this for my daughters. We’ve recently gone gluten free and trying to convince my youngest that you can still enjoy food is a bit trying. Would LOVE to win these and show my girls that we can still eat healthy and enjoy it. :)

  58. I’d love to be entered in this giveaway because gf/corn free candy is so hard to find. These treats sound so amazing that I will be buying some whether or not I win!

  59. I would like to win because finding candies to suit my corn intolerance is a very hard task. These would make it easy for me to have a sweet snack without the worry of a major tummy ache.

  60. I am a home schooling momma for 2 kids, I run our small farm, and work from home for a friend of ours. I hardly ever buy me something special but if I can win it I am a happy camper. Knowing me I would use them for prizes though for my kids and their school. I have found that the bribe system works really well with them. We play wheel of a fortune with our spelling words and every letter they get right they get a tootsie roll, after so many they can trade up to a bigger prize. We also play Bakerdy (our version of jeopardy) and if they get a question right instead of points they get 1 tootsie 2 tootsie”s 3 tootsies etc.

  61. I absolutely love anything caramel! These sound better than what I can even make myself.

  62. These sound so delicious! I really love caramels and miss them! I would really love to be entered into the giveaway to try these out. The fruity ones sound amazing. I’ll definitely be checking them out if I don’t win! :)

  63. I’d love to be entered in the giveaway, because gluten free sweets are so expensive, and it’s so hard to find delicious ones. I love caramels and can’t eat Werther’s because of the wheat. I miss them! I would love to eat every single one of these! :D
