    I cannot attest to the flavor but if you want a organic candy cane that does not contain corn syrup then this may be a good option. It is sweetened with brown rice syrup which may not be an option either since rice is known to contain a level of arsenic which is found in greater amounts in some soil.

    TruSweets Organic Candy Canes are made with the highest quality natural and organic ingredients. Tru- Sweets uses natural colors and flavors, and real organic brown rice syrup and sweeteners to create a healthier and better tasting product. Tru Sweets are also one of the only candy canes made without corn syrup. Holidays and everyday are a little sweeter with TruSweets, the all new way to enjoy your all time candy favorites. Delightfully. Deliciously. Guiltlessly.

    Tru Sweets Frequently Asked Questions:

    Why should I be concerned about artificial colors?A recent study completed by the British medical journal The Lancet, showed that artificial colors and preservatives increased hyperactivity and decreased attention span in a wide range of children with and without learning disabilities. A number of food and candy manufacturers in Europe are now removing artificial colors, flavors and preservatives from their products. In addition, the American Academy of Pediatrics recently issued a position paper which suggested removing artificial colors and preservatives from the diets of children experiencing ADHD behaviors. Artificial colors are primarily coal-tar derivatives made from chemical compounds which are made when coal is distilled.

    Are Tru Sweets products gluten-free?Yes, they are produced on gluten-free equipment. Tru Sweets randomly tests each batch down to 5ppm to confirm this.

    Are Tru Sweets products produced and/or packaged in a facility with other common allergens?Tru Sweets Organic Candy Canes are produced on dedicated nut-free and gluten-free equipment in a segregated area of a facility that also processes dairy, eggs, peanuts, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

    Do you know if any stores around here sell these? I am tired of paying out the nose to ship candy my kid can eat.

    Whole Foods Market carries them but I don't know if all the stores do. You may want to call the store first.
