Hi,

Is there such a thing? Any idea?

Healthy sweets that contain no preservative and artificial coloring.

Yes, there is sweets without artificial colours and flavours.

It can be found in Shop and Save /Cold Storage...

The brand is "the natural confectionery "
The link is http://www.tncc.com.au/Whats-in-the-ran ... saurs.aspx

I like the Dino pack....the taste is just right...

But I buy from the neighbourhood store at SGD3.80 per pack.
Shop and Save is SGD3.95.
Cold Storage is more than SGD4...
Maybe bigger NTUC supermarket carries this brand???

I think all Organic Stores have other Brands .....

Happy Hunting and Shopping.... :evil:

You can find organic sweets in Unity pharmacy. I went to the thomson plaza branch and they stock quite a variety there. Organic lollipops, gummy bears etc.

You can also buy Karihome goat's milk yoghurt sweeties. This is placed at the infant milk powder section, next to the Karihome goat's milk powder.

are you buying for a party for your kid's friend?
my kids seldom take sweets.
the occasional one at best once a week or fortnight.
or some organic fruit juice gummies (available in supermarket similar to the dino one above) when they visit their grandparents who stock up on these.
but i give them vitamin gummies everynight.
that to them is their daily treat of 'sweets' :sweat:

My niece just had a liver transplant. She kept taking sweets which we feel will be bad for her recovery. Then, the idea of healthy kid sweets suddenly come to mind.

You may get those vitamin gummies from GNC or nature farm. My kids love them. I prefer nature farm because of the lower sugar content.

But as she just had a liver transplant, I would advise you not to load the liver with vitamins at the moment. Just take the organic sweets and limit them.

Yesterday I just visited NTUC finest and found some SUGARLESS sweets (?? Sugarless sweets sound quite healthy). It's made in Australia and its a really small packet and very expensive ($4.95?)

Don't know if it's worth. Haha. Didn't buy it :( my mom was like "Aiyo. Ani kuey ah? (So expensive) Mai buey liao. Kia! (don't buy Liao. Let's go!)" LOL.

There used to be some honey stalls a couple of years back (about 2006?) that used to sell small tubes of honey with different flavors. My mom used to buy a lot of them and made them a substitute for sweets.

Honey is healthy. So yeah :wink:

Don't know if they still exist. I think I saw some at Thomson Plaza the other day. Next to yoguru and opposite Four Leaves bakery.

They are SUPER rare I don't seem to eat them anymore :( Tsk. Gonna buy them someday.

There are also some
