SUGAR LAND, Texas, March 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- At this year's Natural Products Expo West (Booth #2621), March 10-12, the Wholesome! brand's spirit for innovation will be on full display. In addition to offering its beloved Fair Trade and organic sweeteners and new frostings, the brand is launching several new candy items, re-launching its Organic Stevia with a better taste and presenting new options with its sugar packets. Sister brand, Surf Sweets, known for its delicious gummy candies that are free of the Top 10 food allergens, will be on site as well sampling its popular candies as well as displaying its latest seasonal candy items.

Wholesome! Organic DelishFish

This popular fish-shaped candy is USDA Organic, Non-GMO Project Verified and made without the use of artificial colors or flavors. It's also made with Wholesome! Fair Trade Organic Cane Sugar rather than high fructose corn syrup. DelishFish is perfect for all ages as they make a tasty snack for road trips, movie nights or even as a lunchbox surprise. DelishFish is Gluten Free, Vegan and Kosher. The candy is available in 2 ounce (MSRP – $1.99) and 6 ounce (MSRP – $4.79) pouches and is in stores nationwide.

Fall 2017 Seasonal Candy
Wholesome! and Surf Sweets brands are currently selling several items for the Fall 2017 holiday season. Both brands' candy items are made without synthetic colors and flavors, high fructose corn syrup and are also gluten free and nut free.

For Halloween, the Wholesome! brand has launched Organic Ghost and Skull Lollipops in a 7.4 ounce/30 count pouch. Shaped like ghosts and skulls, with flavors like Wicked Watermelon and Eerie Orange, these lollipops are perfect for the candy bowl. Surf Sweets will continue to offer its Spooky Spiders, which are a 2.75 ounce pouch of gummy spiders. The brand will also continue to offer its ever popular Trick-or-Treat pack which contains 20/0.5 oz packs of Organic Fruity Bears. As always, both Surf Sweets candy items are free of the Top 10 food allergens.

For the Christmas season, Wholesome! will offer a 5 ounce/10 count box of Organic Candy Canes. The candy canes are nut free, gluten free, vegan and kosher.

New and Better Organic Stevia!
Launching at Expo West, Wholesome! has refreshed its Organic Stevia product with a new and better taste! This new Stevia's zero calorie granules are free-flowing like sugar and easily dissolve in hot or cold beverages. Wholesome! Organic Stevia will continue to be sold in 35, 75 and 120 count boxes of individual packets with new and improved pricing. The Stevia will also be sold in a larger 6 ounce jar giving consumers 40 percent more. Wholesome! Organic Stevia is USDA Organic, Non-GMO Project verified, vegan, kosher and gluten free.

New Sugar Packets!

Sweetener Spotlight: BIllington’s Demerara Unrefined Cane Sugar


British celebrity chef, television personality, food writer and "real food" campaigner says:

Go for the real, unrefined deal when you can. And don’t be fooled when buying brown sugars – not all brown sugars are equal – some are brown on the outside and white on the inside. In other words, little more than refined white sugar given a paint job with a bit of caramel or molasses.

Try this crunchy rich-flavoured sugar in your crumble toppings and caramelised on creme rulée or a perfect finish.



Perfect for Making

Luxury Mince Pies
Plum & Forest Fruits Crumble
Brown-sugared Vanilla Shortbread







About the Company

It was in 1977 that Billington’s began to import sugar of the highest quality – the Mauritian unrefined brown sugars for which we are famous today.

To the present day and Billington’s is now part of The Associated British Foods Group, joining The Silver Spoon Company in 2004. Our founding values of quality, integrity and fair trading, as well as our rich family heritage are still absolutely central to the way we do business today.
