Divvies (Part II) Sweet, Sour & Silly

Do allergic kids need candy? Well I think we all need a little candy sometimes. Moreover a little candy can both express our moods and satisfy them in tandem, which is no small feat.

But certain kinds of candy can be allergic minefields: Like chocolate bars. It's difficult to find a chocolate bar free of all of the eight top allergens. Divvies Founder Lori Sandler solved that problem and tackled more - Gourmet Popcorn, Jelly Beans and even a deliciously sour gummy candy called Super Stars.
Since candy preference is subjective, I'll share our favorites: We all enjoyed the Gourmet Popcorn, which was sweet and salty, but not overly so. My daughter, who wears braces and so has a long list of forbidden foods, reported that the Divvies Popcorn didn't stick to her teeth the way other brands have (and no I didn't ask her when and where she had sampled those other brands...)
My son loved the plain BingGo! Divvine Chocolate Bar and the Jelly Beans. He said that the chocolate tasted "so fresh!" The Super Stars were my pick: I like sour and very flavorful tastes and these packed a punch.
Wait. There's more -- I'll be joining Lori Sandler, along with some wonderful hosts and co-hosts, next week on April 25th at 1:00 PM EST for a "Live Talk" on Managing the Anxiety Often Assoicated with Food Allergies -- on --TheMotherhood!
Hmm. That should allow just enough time to buy more Divvies. It's just too bad we can't share virtual treats....
