Candy sales in the United States are expected to reach over $38 billion by 2020. As cravings for sugar surge, so does the demand for more naturally sourced sweets. California based company Amborella Organics has created a lollipop that is both sweet and sustainable.
As their name implies, Amborella Organics specializes in organic ingredients. The company has given classic lollipops a new look. These candies combine extracts of fruits and herbs to create a natural lollipop. The foundation of each lollipop usually entails basic ingredients like pure cane sugar, beet sugar, and water. Flavors are created by adding bits of edible plants like roses, sage, rosemary, lavender, lemongrass, hibiscus, and marigold. For color, the team adds a dash of natural dyes from foods like turmeric and carrots.
