Organic Candy Factory

Piper Cochrane and her daughter, Ginger, love sweets. But Piper knew that the candy in her daughter’s fantasy confectionery “had to be better,” especially because their family was already so careful about what they chose to put on the dinner table. So, the Organic Candy Factory offers alternatives to popular candies typically made with dyes, chemicals and gelatin.

But their candy isn't just about what it doesn't contain. We love it most because it's bursting with juicy, real fruit flavor that keeps us coming back for one more chewy, delicious bite. 

A percentage of all Organic Candy Factory’s online sales are donated to Hope North, a living and learning community in northern Uganda for refugees, orphans and former child soldiers.
