Lovely Candy launches honey gummies in the US

Published 09 May 2017

The Lovely Candy Company has rolled out its new honey gummies to expand its footprint in premium confections.

Continuing with founders Mike and Jackie Nakamura's ongoing premium product quest, the company has developed a line of honey gummies, which is believed to be the first gummy candy made with honey as its first ingredient.

Honey Gummy Bears is an industry first and the honey gummy bears have many wonderful, healthy attributes. Honey has fewer calories than sugar and contains trace vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants, which makes them a great choice for consumers who love gummy bears.

The product line will be available in assorted fruit flavors and sour berry in 4 and 6 ounce sizes.  Retails are expected to be under $3.00.

The announcement of Honey Gummy Bears follows a series of innovative products by The Lovely Candy Company. Its growing line of Consciously Crafted candies recently expanded to include Organic Chocolate Covered Coconut Chips, Dark Chocolate Honey Truffles and Gluten Free Pretzel Balls.

"We started this company to make life more lovely for people like my wife who want delicious candies, that also happen to be gluten-free, GMO-free and high fructose corn syrup free," said Lovely Candy Company President Mike Nakamura. "We are committed to using the highest quality ingredients to create consciously crafted products that everyone can enjoy, not just those with dietary restrictions."

Lovely Candy continues to see major distribution gains with Lovely Caramels and Juicy Chews, which have an MSRP of $4.99 for a 6-ounce stand up pouch, as it continues its innovation leadership in the chewy candy category.

The entire line is gluten-free, kosher, non-GMO, without high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors or flavors and the caramels contain hormone-free dairy.
