I was at Sprouts (formerly Sunflower Farmer’s Market) the other day and spied a new (to me) label calling to me with its promises of being nut free and allergy friendly. Tree Hugger All Natural Bubble Gum checked out ingredient-wise for our family and I’m happy to report it also passed some thorough taste testing by my 4 1/2 and 6 1/2 year old kids.
Each flavor is unique and matches its naturally colored exterior quite well, though I couldn’t really tell you the difference between “tangerine” and “orange” but you’ll have fun trying to find one.
At $3 a bag direct from the company (amazon affiliate link – currently a higher per bag price), I’d say the price is reasonable compared to other specialty food allergy items and we’d definitely buy it again. There is a warning about a possible shared facility with soy, so exercise caution and contact the company if you have questions or concerns in that regard.
The variety we tried was “Citrus Berry Mix” and 2 pieces comes in at 10 calories. The colors, flavors, and texture remind me of gum ball machines when I was a kid – something my kiddos don’t get to experience because of cross contamination risk (and lack of labeling). I’m going to be on the lookout for a gumball machine bank for my office. I think it might be a fun feature especially for clients bringing kids along to meetings.
Hopefully this variety of gum is a safe option!
