Healthy Surprise is going corn free! - UPDATE 0

Back in April we announced that we were going to be Corn-Free and not carry any corn products. The response was pretty fantastic; no one mourned the loss of corny ingredients! However, we were approached by many of our clients asking us how ‘free’ we were going to be.
