Pros: Organic, corn-syrup free, GMO-free, etc. etc...and they're delicious!
Cons: Plastic wrap is probably not biodegradable, not so teeth friendly (but I suppose no candy is)
So I haven't had all of the flavors of Yummy Earth Organic Lollipops yet...I've had the Pomegranate Pucker, Mango Tango, and Sour Apple Tart. Thus far...so delicious.
Okay, okay, truth be told, I picked up a bag that's specifically meant for Halloween trick-or-treaters, but...I just couldn't resist. I had to sample them. Let's just hope I don't eat them all before the 31st!
In terms of eco-friendliness, the lollipops are all natural and all organic. That also helps with the people-friendliness too of course. On top of that, they are great for little and big kids alike with food allergies (nut-free, soy-free, wheat-free, dairy-free, no sodium, etc). And I really can't stress it enough. They are just plain excellent lollipops. You know the lollies you'd get at the doctor's office when you were a kid? Yeah, they're nothing like that.
The Pomegranate Pucker and the Sour Apple have a great tartness to them...just plain tasty, what can I say. Even for those of us who can't help but bite the lollipop, they are very satisfying.
Now, the only cons are that a) the lollipops are individually wrapped (although I can't really see a way around that because you don't want to end up with a great big mess of candy and stick all stuck together that you can't even eat). And b) as all candy goes, your teeth might need some better brushing. But again...if you're going to be eating lollipops (or candy in general), those aren't fatal flaws.
At the end of the day, I have to agree with the quotation from Phil Lempert of the Today Show that appears on the back of the bag. It's the best lollipop I've ever tasted (although those caramel and sour apple ones were always fun despite any stickiness....definitely not organic or natural though). I highly recommend them.
UPDATE: Well...now I've had a few more Yummy Earth lollipops. The Vitamin C pops taste exactly the same as the regular kind (meaning they taste great). But you get the added bonus of the Vitamin C. The other kind of pops I've had are the Hot Chili Pops. They make a Chili Mango Mambo pop and a Chili Lime Lambada pop. The Mango Mambo is pretty darn spicy...I wasn't sure I liked it at first, but it did grow on me. I think on the whole, I prefer the Chili Lime Lambada (if you're going to eat any kind of spicy lollipop) because the spice "makes more sense" to me there with the lime flavor, rather than with the mango flavor. It also seemed less bitingly hot (even though I am a big fan of spice).
