Nicky Bronner decided to make his own "unjunked" alternatives after his parents threw away half of his Halloween candy.

Unreal, a new line of candy made from only natural ingredients, will debut soon in CVS, Target, Kroger, BJ's Wholesale, and other stores. It is the brainchild of 15-year-old Nicky Bronner who decided to “unjunk” snacks after his parents took away half of his Halloween candy because they said it was bad for him.

Unreal candy features five alternatives to some of America's best-selling candies, with candy coated chocolates, candy coated chocolates with peanuts, peanut butter cups, a chocolate caramel nougat bar, and a chocolate peanut caramel nougat bar. Each is made with real ingredients, less sugar and without hydrogenated oil, corn syrup, artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. They contain 45% less sugar, 13% less fat, 23% fewer calories, 149% more protein and 250% more fiber than industry leading brands, on average per unit.
