Jealous Sweets - Grizzly Bears Review
You might have seen some of the awesome sweets by Jealous Sweets making their way in to some of our new hampers recently. If you haven't tried these fruity, Grizzly Bears yet, you're missing out!
Jealous Sweets are the brainchild of Imran Merza and Taz Basunia who set up this luxury sweets company to bring credibility back to the confectionery industry. The outcome is a range of fabulous sweets that are free from artificial flavours, sugar-free, palm oil-free, vegan and gluten-free!
When we did our taste tests, we couldn't believe that these were sugar-free. These little vegan bears are really bursting with flavour. They really remind me of cinema sweets; that rich, juicy flavour that keeps you coming back for more!
Interestingly, the colours from the bears come from a combination of real fruit juice and natural colourants like paprika, elderberry and spirulina. This is a genius way to keep those bright colours without resorting to artificial colours like most sweets on the shelves.
The packaging is very eye-catching and it's no wonder that you can pick up a pack of these off the shelf in Selfridges and Harvey Nichols! The only thing that wasn't clear from the packaging was whether it was recyclable or not, which was a bit disappointing.
Other than that, there was nothing we didn't like about these Grizzly Bears! Some of the vegan sweets on the market can lack a bit of punch. However, this was certainly not the case with the Grizzly Bears. You can find them in a number of our vegan gift hampers at yayvegan.co.uk.
