Candy Spotlight: Give Your Taste Buds a Boost with the New HI-CHEW™ Superfruit Mix

 

Introducing Dragon Fruit, winner of the HI-CHEW™ East Meets West Flavor Challenge to bring top fan-voted Japanese flavor to America

IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- HI-CHEW™, the immensely fruity, intensely chewy candy gets a super boost with the launch of the new HI-CHEW™ Superfruit Mix, featuring vibrant fruit flavors such as Açaí, Kiwi, and an exotic new addition: HI-CHEW™ Dragon Fruit. Dragon Fruit makes its debut to the brand's national portfolio as the winner of HI-CHEW's 2018 East Meets West Flavor Challenge, in which American HI-CHEW™ fanatics and candy fans alike voted for the top Japanese flavor they would like to see available in the United States.

Morinaga America, Inc., maker of HI-CHEW™, hosted the East Meets West Flavor Challenge to pay homage to the brand's Japanese heritage and celebrate ten years of success since coming to America in 2008. Dragon Fruit claimed victory amongst 20 unique and interesting HI-CHEW™ flavors from Japan, ranging from Banana Fizz to Strawberry Cheesecake. The fruit, known for its bright hue, is grown in various countries, including the small Japanese island of Okinawa. With the arrival of the winning fruit flavor, the brand continues to drive innovation and excitement with its true-to-fruit flavor offerings and one-of-a-kind chewy texture.

"HI-CHEW™ fans across the country have spoken, and we are thrilled to debut the favored Dragon Fruit alongside Açaí and Kiwi in the new Superfruit Mix," said Tatsuya Takamiya, Chief Marketing Officer of Morinaga America, Inc. "With this new variety, we're excited to tap into consumer trends of better-for-you, superfruit flavors with the authentic, real fruit-forward taste that HI-CHEW™ enthusiasts enjoy."

The Superfruit Mix is filled with flavors derived from fruits sporting superfruit properties. Dragon Fruit, Açaí and Kiwi are all made with concentrated fruit juices, with each piece offering an indulgent snacking solution and packing a burst of refreshingly sweet flavor and real chia seeds in every chewy bite. HI-CHEW™ Dragon Fruit also features the fruit's pink outer color and white center. HI-CHEW™ Açaí's rich purple hue mimics the açaí berry, which is high in antioxidants. HI-CHEW™ Kiwi offers the refreshing taste of the ripe fruit with real kiwi seed texture.

After more than a decade of innovating HI-CHEW™ candy for its ever-growing, enthusiastic fan base, Morinaga America, Inc.'s team of flavor experts continues to develop the most authentic flavors through detailed research into consumers' palates, preferences, and trends. With this thorough and selective flavor-making process, the brand continues to grow and expand its portfolio in the United States. In fact, one billion pieces of HI-CHEW™ were eaten this past year, a testament to the can't-get-enough fruity, chewy candy!

For a suggested retail price of $2.39 (varies per market), HI-CHEW™ Superfruit Mix is available exclusively at 7-Eleven locations nationwide and on the retailer's Amazon page through April.

Food News: PEEPS® Brand Teams Up With Katie Lee to Debut PEEPS® Delights™ at South Beach Wine & Food Festival

 

 

Iconic Marshmallow Candy Brand Attends Food Festival for the First Time Ever to Introduce New, Indulgent Product Line

 

BETHLEHEM, Pa., Feb. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Just Born Quality Confections, the makers of the iconic candy brand PEEPS®, is debuting its newest and most indulgent product line at this year's South Beach Wine & Food Festival with the help of Food Network culinary personality, Katie Lee. To gain excitement for the new product line, PEEPS® teamed up with Katie Lee to create unique recipes featuring the new PEEPS® Delights™ to showcase and sample at the food festival.

PEEPS® Delights™ is a new line of delicious flavored marshmallow Chicks dipped in chocolate or fudge, providing a decadent taste experience. Delights™ are launching just in time for Easter and come in a range of flavors including, Coconut and Blueberry, both dipped in dark chocolate. For the first time ever, fans can also enjoy PEEPS® Filled Delights™ available only at Target in two flavors: Triple Chocolate and Vanilla Caramel Brownie. These unique and innovative Delights™ have a delicious ribbon of filling inside the Chick and are also decadently dipped in chocolate.

"PEEPS® Delights™ attract a slightly different audience than our core marshmallow product line as these more indulgent PEEPS® are meant as a treat to enjoy, rather than an Easter basket essential or in a craft," said Caitlin Servian, Assistant Brand Manager for PEEPS®. "South Beach Wine & Food Festival will be the perfect venue to debut the product line and allow us to engage with our fans directly."

Katie Lee will serve up her delicious Delights™ recipes to patrons at the food festival, including Coconut Chocolate PEEPS® Delights™ Seven-Layer Cookies. Fans will also get the chance to pose with the iconic PEEPS® Chick Mascot on the step and repeat.

For the past 20 years, PEEPS® has been named the number one sugar candy at Easter. Thanks to the innovative and creative associates at Just Born Quality Confections, the brand is gaining popularity outside of the Easter season with new products and seasonal flavors. The Delights™ line will expand into other seasons as well, providing indulgent flavor pairings for fall and winter holidays.

Fans who are unable to attend the food festival can check out Katie Lee's delicious recipes inspired by PEEPS® Delights™ by visiting marshmallowpeeps.com.

NEW YORK, Oct. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Bazooka Candy Brands, a division of The Topps Company, Inc., is once again bringing innovation to the confectionery space with the introduction of Bazooka Sugar Free Gum.  This brand new product is packed with the huge flavor of classic Bazooka Bubble Gum, but in a brand-new sugar free form.  It is accredited by the American Dental Association and is the winner of the "Most Innovative New Product" in the Gum/Mints category at the 2016 National Confectioners Association Sweet & Snacks Expo.

Bazooka Sugar Free is available in multiple formats that continue Bazooka's history of providing fun and edible entertainment.  The "To Go Cup" product offering contains 60 pieces of sugar free gum and includes a pull-out comic that features a variety of games and puzzles.

In keeping with its roots in fun and entertainment, Bazooka Sugar Free is also working together with two of the most iconic properties of all time, Disney's Frozen and Marvel's Avengers.   The slim tubes come with 22 pieces of sugar free gum in one of two delicious flavors: classic Original and all-new Blue Razz.  The Original flavor slim tube features Captain America from Marvel's Avengers, while the Blue Razz flavor slim tube features Anna and Elsa from Disney Frozen.
