barely perceptible mint flavor
I am happy about these being organic and natural. I am willing to pay more if organic peppermint oil is expensive. The Pure Fun brand of peppermint candy was much better, but, alas, they can no longer be found. I wish there were an enhanced flavor option. I can't do the Red #40 and titanium dioxide, so I wonder if I'll have to do without peppermint candy.

2.5 stars. I can almost not taste the peppermint at all-- they do have a nice smooth, mellow sweetness, but... no peppermint! That is key to a candy cane! Also, some bites had a funny aftertaste I think from the brown rice. Finally, they are distinctly pink, actually a funny sort of mauve color. They will not look like "everyone else's" candy canes. The included mango chili lollipop I got as a free sample was awesome though :)

I like that these canes are vegan.My loves these canes because they are sweet n mint,not bitey.The hint of mint and the syrupy brown rice make these canes over the top in all ways.

Best Candy Canes
These are our favorite candy canes! My kids, who don't like spicy candy canes, love these. The mint is just right. It's subtle and delicious and not too strong! These are very addicting.

These are too much sweetness without any cooling pepermint. Don't get me wrong. These are delicious candy canes but I think they missed the most important ingredient of what makes a candy cane special. Pepermint oil. There's only some very mild flavor of pepermint along with other delicious flavors that would complement nicely if there was real pepermint oil added. Then these would be a 5 on the rating scale

I love these Candy Canes!
These are the best candy canes I have ever had. They smell just as good as they taste. I am so grateful they are organic, gluten free, and red dye free. I didn't know how we were going to have Christmas without candy canes. My son has already eaten two boxes and I've had to hide the rest from him. Delicious!!

These are fantastic! The kids love them, they're just the right size. I'm only giving it a 4 because it is more pink than red, so the kids notice that slight difference. Other than that - perfect! A Christmas re-order must every year!

I found these not NEARLY as strongly mint flavored as regular candy canes and lacking that, as another reviewer said, "peppermint punch" which I found myself missing as I'm fond of candy canes/starlights. However, these were quite surprisingly good. The flavor was much more mellow and subtle, even. Didn't completely satisfy my peppermint craving, but they tided me over. And the texture was identical to standard candy canes.
While the taste was decent, due to how pricy these are, I would only recommend these to someone who had allergies or certain dietary restrictions; they're quadruple the cost of regular candy canes in the height of the holiday season.

Our Candy Canes!
I am rating these a four only because if you are used to regular candy canes, you will notice a slight difference. These don't have quite as much of the peppermint punch. However, these are delicious, and our children love them! Due to a combination of food allergies and healthy choices, these are our candy canes of choice!

We love these delicious candy canes. Thank you for providing such a healthy alternative that tastes better than the unhealthy ones.

Having a child with dye allergies certainly is challenging at times. Finding these candy canes was perfect! Our entire family enjoyed them very much. So wonderful to find Pure Fun products, nice to know a company actually cares about goodness.

Delicious, sweet peppermint flavor with rose pink stripes. This delicious, naturally colored candy looks handmade.

These things were pretty awesome. They taste similar to commercial candy canes, but are much more smooth in texture and taste. I was happy to actually have candy canes that did not make me sick :) Also, they're fun to swirl in your mouth.
