About the company

Mike and Dan became friends while working together at fruit vendors extraordinaire, innocent. They joined back in the early days when it was just a rag tag bunch of smoothie loving dreamers…

They both chose innocent because they were passionate about food and wanted to work somewhere that was doing some good. It was an amazing company to be a part of and they were there for a combined 13 years. They learnt tonnes about everything from how to source great ingredients to the nitty gritty of running a business.

They’d often talked about one day starting out on their own and the time came when they decided someone needed to do something about the state of confectionery. Sweets, mints and gum were the same as they had been for decades and it was a mystery why no one was trying to make better, healthier or more sustainable products. So they decided to do it themselves and founded Peppersmith.

Since then Peppersmith has been on a mission to make confectionery that tastes good and does you good. We now make mints and gum that are all accredited by the British Dental Health Foundation for helping reduce the risk of plaque and tooth decay. And they’re free from funny stuff like artificial flavours, colours, preservatives or aspartame.

Gum Spotlight: Peppersmith Launches Their New and Improved Gum

 

 

Today is a big day at Peppersmith HQ. After a huge amount of hard work and what must have been hundreds of product trials, we’re finally ready to launch our new gum.

While the old gum had plenty of fans, there were some important things that you told us you wanted fixed. And it’s great to be able to now tell you that we’ve fixed them. Here’s what’s changed and why…

 

Hello flavour
Making gum is so tricky, especially when avoiding flavour enhancers like aspartame. The flavour of our old gum was quite short lived so we have a new recipe that holds the flavour much better. And because we still use fine English peppermint it’s a lovely, clean, natural peppermint taste.

Bye bye chicle
The old gum was made using a natural rubber called chicle. This is a nice idea but in reality it became unsustainable. Lots of people didn’t like the variable texture, it was bad at holding flavour and it had a nasty habit of sticking to caps and false teeth. The only real benefit was the provenance of it being rainforest sourced but we’d really struggled to get close enough to the ingredient to make sure this was as good as it sounded. We’ve now switched to a more traditional base that still contains natural rubber mixed with man-made, food-grade rubber. As a result the new gum has much better flavour, a better texture and is overall just a much better product. Gum base is completely inert and all the other ingredients that you do ‘eat’ (which make up over 70% of each piece) are still naturally derived.

Better packaging
Our number one complaint by far was that the packs kept coming open in people’s bags. To stop this we’ve added a little tab that can be tucked in to keep the lid securely shut. Our old gum also came with a booklet of papers to wrap used gum in. We stand by the idea and it was a genuine attempt to help prevent gum litter. The reality is though we heard most people weren’t using them and we’ve had plenty of complaints that they meant our gum was over-packaged. Those not using them were also unhappy they were having to pay the significant cost they added (around 20p). We’ve therefore taken the papers out of the packs, brought down the price by the same amount and anyone still wanting wrappers can get in touch and we will send them some for free.

Clearer packaging
Our mission is to make the healthiest gum around and because we use 100% xylitol, ours is proven to actively reduce plaque. This is a very important proven benefit and we’ve now stuck it on the front of the pack to make sure it’s clear to one and all.

As you can see we’ve made some big changes. As usual we carefully considered every one of them and it’s nice to now say we’ve gone a long way towards sorting out the things you most wanted improved. No doubt there are still more improvements to make and we’ll keep striving to make them.

You can buy the new gum from our webshop here.

Product Spotlight: Peppersmith Tingz Orange & Mandarin Sugar Free Sweets

 

Made with juicy real oranges and mandarins, these tingz have zest, zing, zip and lots of other great stuff beginning with z

 

Ingredients: Xylitol (sweetener), gum arabic (thickener), calcium stearate† (anti-caking agent), carnauba wax (glazing agent), orange oil, mandarin oil, natural orange flavours, curcumin (natural colour).

† from vegetable sources

Suitable for vegans. Gluten free.

Protein 0g,
Carbohydrate 93g (of which sugars 0g, polyols 93g), Fat 1.3g (of which saturates 1.2g)
Sodium 0g

 

All about Xylitol

tingz are sugar free and instead we make them with xylitol. In fact they’re a whopping 92% xylitol by weight, meaning each bag contains nearly 14g of the stuff (each sweet is just over 0.5g).

Xylitol eh. It’s got a bit of a strange name. What is it?
It’s a polyol (a sugar alcohol) and was first made from Finnish birch trees in the early 1900s. It’s name comes from ‘xylon’, which is just the Greek for wood (think xylophone).

Most living things naturally produce xylitol including trees, fruits, plants, animals and even people. The human body produces up to 15g of xylitol each day. In some parts of the world xylitol is made from corn cobs but we prefer to get ours from beech trees. This way we can be sure there are no GMOs in our ingredients and that it’s 100% sustainably sourced.
 

About Peppersmith
We’re Peppersmith, an independent company formed in 2009 by two friends (Mike and Dan). Because we’re independent we can do things a little differently and plan for the future instead of just looking for short-term gain. We can’t promise to be perfect but we can always promise to try our best to do the right things.

Our little company’s mission is to make stuff that tastes good and does you good. It’s a tough challenge as very few things deliver on both of these but we’re giving it our best shot. We also have a set of values that are dear to us and that we promise to stick to them:

Make stuff that tastes great.
Do no harm. Make things better.
Be interesting.
Be refreshing.

Over the last couple of years we launched our gum and then our mints which continue to go from strength to strength. But if you’re going to make healthy confectionery it makes sense to also do something for kids. So in 2013 we launched Peppersmith tingz.
