Frequently Asked Questions
Are your lollipops organic?
Yes, our products are organic and carefully sourced and we are working hard on receiving our USDA certified organic designation.
What is the recommended age of use?
Our products are ideal for children from 3-99. Under the age of three, we suggest you consult with your pediatrician. Children under the age of one should not be given honey.
Are the lollipop ingredients allergy safe?
We recommend you check with your doctor if you have any allergies.
Are your lollipops nut-free?
Our products are nut and gluten-free but are made in a facility where nut products are made.
Is all sugar created equal?
MommaBear uses cane sugar in our lolipops, a raw form of sugar that is less processed than table sugar. Unlike white refined sugar, which is stripped of all its nutritional value, unrefined cane sugar has the same vitamin and mineral consistency as sugarcane plant juice. Sugarcane juice is naturally rich in antioxidants, namely polyphenols, which helps defend against free radicals and toxins found in the environment.
Are you Kosher?
Our lollipops are made in a Kosher certified facility and we are working on getting our own kosher certification.
Why these lollipops are harder to open than conventional candy?
The difficulty in opening our lollipops as compared to conventional candy is primarily a byproduct of our commitment to maintaining product freshness and quality. We utilize organic honey, which has a higher moisture content and varying consistency compared to High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS), commonly used in other candies.
Honey's hygroscopic nature, meaning it absorbs moisture from its environment, necessitates a more robust and secure wrapper to prevent moisture infiltration that could compromise the product's freshness.
As such, we use shrink wrappers specifically designed to create a moisture-resistant barrier, preserving the natural goodness and flavor of our honey-based lollipops. While this specialized wrapping material might require a bit more effort to open, it serves the crucial purpose of ensuring that you receive a fresh, high-quality product.
