Celebrate Celiac Awareness Month With Gimbal's Fine Candies! {Review & Giveaway}

11:20 AM

Hard to believe that it is almost the end of May already! Weren't we just buried in snow yesterday? We have been getting our garden planted and have been enjoying fixing up the yard for the summer. Getting things ready for the summer is always something that we enjoy and our children love being involved.
So, with it being May that means one thing. It is Celiac Awareness Month! Fortunately, our family doesn't suffer from this or any other food-related allergy or disease but I know several people who do and it isn't a fun thing. People who deal with Celiac Disease have to be so careful what they eat and even, what their food touches. If their food comes in contact with anything containing wheat or gluten products, they can get very sick. I have a good friend who is like this and it is difficult for her to get people to understand just how sensitive she is to gluten.
So, in honor of Celiac Awareness Month, I am going to bring you a yummy review from Gimbal's Fine Candies because their candies are totally allergy-free (peanut-free, tree nut-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and egg-free) and are perfect for ANYONE! If you have a sweet tooth and are looking for some delicious snacking options, Gimbal's will most certainly have something that you will enjoy. From hot candy to sour, they have something for everyone. Before I continue though, here is a brief overview of this company...

In 1898, Alexander Gimbal founded the Gimbal Candy Kitchen in bustling downtown San Francisco. Four generations later, all of us at Gimbal's Fine Candies remain passionate about making delectable treats. We love candy!

Our motto is - "Making Gourmet Candies for Everyone Everyday." From old-time favorites, to fun and innovative new candies - everything we create is made with pride in USA.

I have reviewed Gimbal's Fine Candies here on my blog in the past and let me tell you...that candy didn't last very long! My children love treats. :) My husband also has a pretty big sweet tooth and he especially loves gummy type candy so he was also in the candy quite a bit. Jelly beans are his "veggie" of choice (along with candy corn) and we always laugh about that when we have a bag of jelly beans laying around.
So, for this review I was sent some bags of some of what I thought would be our favorite candy from Gimbal's. I received Cherry Lovers, Sour Gourmet Jelly Beans, and Sour Lovers. These bags are a good size and so they can last a long time...as long as you don't have five people digging into the bag daily. :)
Sour Lovers are basically gummy hearts that are covered in a sour sugar. They consist of 12 different flavors, from Bing cherry to Meyer lemon, each bag is bursting with flavor. The Sour Gourmet Jelly Beans (made with real fruit juice!) also have 12 different flavors in each bag and these are definitely for the person who loves sour candy!
When I asked my children to pick their favorite out of the three bags, they chose Cherry Lovers! I have to agree with them. While the other flavors were super yummy, the Cherry Lovers were the number one hit. These are about as "everything cherry" that you can get. Flavors include wild cherry, cherry vanilla, black cherry, chocolate cherry, cherry cheesecake, cherry Daiquiri, cherry cola, kiwi cherry and bing cherry. These flavors are AMAZING and my children loved them.
My three little taste-testers were all too willing to try out these candies from Gimbal's and I have to say, once they tasted them I had a hard time getting them to stop. Making snacking fun doesn't have to be complicated...just grab a bag of Gimbal's and dig in! The 13 ounce bags that I received retail for about $4.29 but you can certainly pick from a variety of sizes, including a 38 oz. jar. Make sure you check out Gimbal's on Facebook to stay current with news and other fun stuff.

Gimbal's has offered a fun giveaway for you all today! The prize will be 2 bags of Sour Lovers, 2 bags of Cherry Lovers and 2 bags of Cinnamon Lovers!!! Here are your easy entry options...
