Proprietary Signature Blends are Hand-Crafted to Soothe the Palate and Benefit the Body

WELLINGTON, Fla., Aug. 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Bringing new meaning to hard candy, Essential Candy® ― using only all-natural quality ingredients ― recently launched delicious healthy hard candy that incorporate essential oils and bring significant benefits to the body. Born from an idea to help those fighting cancer, Essential Candy is aptly referred to as "Candy With A Purpose," and is available in both Signature Blends and cannabidiol (CBD) hard candies

Founded by wife-and-husband duo Tracy and Dean Ernst of Wellington, Florida, Essential Candy was created with Tracy's divine inspiration that she wanted to help a friend who was battling cancer. The candy, which she saw as a palatable solution to the side effects of chemotherapy, is a vessel to help with the Ernsts' mission to give back to their community and beyond.

Containing no artificial colors, flavors, preservatives or sweeteners, Essential Candy is vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, low-calorie and low-carb, and is approved by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services for its CBD hard candies. From purified water to natural organic cane sugar, with just two grams of sugar per piece, Essential Candy's ingredients remain true to their original source.

The organic essential oils are harvested directly from growers around the world, who are known for their expertise and masters at their craft. Oils are distilled from plants through low-heat steam distillation or an expression process and are thoroughly tested to ensure purity, quality, effectiveness and the highest safety standards.

Essential Candy's proprietary Signature Blends are offered in the following flavors, which are created to focus on where the body needs support. All of the below are packaged in 3-oz. bags, with 23–25 individually wrapped candies in each bag, and priced from $10–$12:

Essential Candy's CBD line of hard candies, which is approved by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, third-party tested, and features 10mg of CBD Isolate per piece, include Signature Plus CBD with Mandarin ($19), Signature Plus CBD with Peppermint ($19), and Signature Plus CBD with Lemon and Ginger ($19). The CBD candies are available in 1.6-oz. bags each containing 12–13 individually wrapped hard candies.

"The idea for Essential Candy came to me during meditation on a solo bicycle ride. I asked myself, 'how can I help our dear friend going through chemotherapy?' The guided message was simply to make hard candies with essential oils," said Tracy Ernst, who is a vegetarian, as well as a yoga and meditation teacher. "I was alone pushing hard against the wind, and the vision of my friend fighting cancer just appeared in my mind. He wasn't giving up the fight, and I was going to continue riding along with him."

"It was a spiritual, uplifting experience," she continued. "And so began the journey of listening and being guided to help with a little piece of joy in every Essential Candy."

"What makes Essential Candy unique is the love we have for helping others through our 'Get One Give One' initiative," said Dean Ernst, a serial entrepreneur. "For every bag of candy purchased, Essential Candy donates a bag to cancer support groups. We are happy to further our 'Candy With A Purpose' mission through this initiative and offer our all-natural hard candies to the world."

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. Starting April 26th, it will be available for purchase at Walmart locations nationwide and online at HI-CHEW.com.
