Candy without artificial dye

My son and daughter are sensitive to artificial dyes. But of course, they still like candy. They usually have to have chocolate if they get candy. They want "fun" candy sometimes too. So, it suddenly hit me that someone must make hard candy without dyes. I've seen a few online after looking around. I don't know what is good though.

Any recommendations? Thanks!

Re: Candy without artificial dye

My dh makes candy from honey. It's kind of labor intensive. I can ask his recipe when he gets home from work if you want it.

Yummy Earth makes lollipops and candy without artificial dyes. The lollipops are really good.

I run a co-op on DS for Frontier Wholesale, and they sell a line called Yummy Earth. They sell gummy bears, gummy worms, sour worms and lollipops. Probably other things. You can likely get Yummy Earth wherever you would purchase natural foods as well.

No Trader Joes or Whole Foods or anything of the sort within 1.5 hrs of here.
