We GOT Unreal on Thursday, June 28th from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PT for @GetUnreal at #DadChat and learned about Unreal and how you can make efforts to unjunk your kid’s snack foods! We were joined by co-host @TheGoToMom, and guests @markhymanmd, and @GetUnreal. Three lucky winners won gift packs of Unreal. It was a spirited, informative, and oh-so-fun chat. Read the transcript (which may be lagging due to some tech problems with Twitter).
They’re starting with candy – the worst offender. As you probably know, most people think corn syrup, hydrogenated fat, artificial ingredients and GMOs are there for us, to make candy taste better. Sadly, they’re really there to make candy cheaper to manufacture.
Unreal candies replace the junk by doubling the cacao and using real milk, cane sugar, organic palm fruit oil and more peanuts. Naturally, we think their candy tastes better. But it also has substantially less sugar and fat, fewer calories, and more protein than leading candies.
They’re competing head to head – at the same price – at CVS, Walgreens, Kroger, Target, Rite Aid, and 7-11 stores. Their plan is to disrupt the junk food market by proving you can unjunk, enjoy the taste, pay the same price, and find it everywhere.
We think you will like the candy. But Unreal’s goal is to be a catalyst. This summer, they’re unjunking a few feet of your candy aisle. In five years, they want the entire aisle unjunked, no matter which company gets the sale.
We’d love for you to be involved as we launch this new product: Get the word out about UNREAL and they will keep UNJUNKING your favorite junk foods…
