Updated 2018! The Natural Candy Store is a sweet way to shop for special diet indulgences. Their main categories include Organic, Dye-Free, Non-GMO, Allergy-Friendly, Gluten-Free, Vegan, Fair Trade, and Made in USA. But they also have more advanced special diets searches that are so much fun and easy to use. They cover tons of special diets, allergens, restrictions, and even types of sweeteners. You just click on your restriction(s) and your options instantly pop up.
And unlike so many special diet searches, the Natural Candy Store knows that dietary needs aren’t always black and white. Let’s say you are severely allergic to milk. Then you can pick the “Strict Milk Free” option under the “Allergen Free” header. But if you have a milk concern that isn’t highly sensitive, you can broaden your choices by picking the “No Milk Ingredients” option under the “Made Without” header.
Once you’ve picked your dietary needs and preferences, you can further narrow down the selection by candy type. Honestly, I didn’t realize how many types of candy there are! For chocolate lovers, they have candy bars, candy-coated chocolates, and truffles, to name just a few. For sugar fiends, there is brittle, hard candy, toffee, taffy, jellies, and so much more. They even have DIY kits and supplies, like natural food coloring. Party candy and bulk candy are also available.
Within the U.S., they have flat rate shipping up to $75, and free shipping beyond that. They do ship worldwide, and the shipping rates are calculated at the time of purchase.
