caramel - CopyNatural, gluten- and GMO-free candy? With a name like The Lovely Candy Company, you gotta love it. The company makes delicious, caramels, chocolate chews, licorice drops, super fruit chews and fruit chews.

In 2013, Chicago’s Mike and Jackie Nakamura wanted an all-natural candy line, so they made their own. Mike is also the CEO of Bem Wireless in Chicago.

The all-natural line is soy-free and contains no high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, colors or preservatives — a perfect choice for people with food sensitivities and celiac disease. Flavors include:

  • Lovely Candy Original Chewy Caramels — these were the biggest hit at our office. Everyone loved them.
  • Lovely Candy Chocolate Swirl Caramels
  • Lovely Candy Super Fruit Chews (in Cranberry, Raspberry and Blueberry)
  • Lovely Candy Fruit Chews (in Apple, Cherry and Blackberry)
  • Lovely Candy Organic Cherry Licorice Drops

You can buy the candy at national retailers including Giant Eagle Market District, Target, Hallmark, Home Goods, Fresh Market, Lassen’s, Bristol Farms, Eli Zabar and Metropolitan City Market. Or you can online — click here — buy three bags and get free shipping  for $13.48, a discount on the regular $17.97 price.

Margarita on Flag of MexicoNational Margarita Day is Friday, Feb. 22. It might seem odd that I would post this — I don’t like tequila. But when I saw the list of sponsors for the day — see below — I had to stand up  and take notice. So come Friday, make mine one of those blackberry delights  from Longhorn Steakhouse with vodka — not tequila.

As my cartoon friend, Speedy Gonzales would say, “Andele, Andele! Arriba! Arriba!”
