YumEarth Brings Organic Innovation to Sweets & Snacks

Booth 2000 Will Showcase a New Look, 6 New Organic Candies, and Bring Smiles to Everyone

Stamford, CT (May 22, 2017) – YumEarth, the #1 organic candy company, is heading back to the Sweets & Snacks Expo this year with a new attitude. Six new products will headline booth 2000, wrapped in the new YumEarth packaging, conveying the company’s message of simplicity, smiles, and better sweets. Along with mouth-watering organic confections, YumEarth will be partnering with Give Kids The World to donate allergen-free, organic candy to terminally ill children and serving up a special product surprise at 4pm.  

 

USDA Organic and gluten free Peach, Strawberry, Pomegranate, and Black licorice, Sour Twists and new Sour Beans join the YumEarth product lineup which also includes lollipops, hard candies, gummy bears, fruit snacks, and special holiday candies. Most YumEarth products are USDA Organic, non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free, free from the top 8 allergens, flavored and colored with real fruit juice, and made without high-fructose corn syrup.

 

Convenient grab-and-go packaging for YumEarth top sellers, pomegranate and peach licorice, pomegranate gummy bears, Sour Twists, and seasonal candy corn are available in the 2.0oz packaging, perfect for cash register displays. The grab-and-go packaging, as well as the resealable 5.0oz bags target busy consumers who frequently snack while taking care of other obligations.

 

“Sweets & Snacks is about showcasing top-notch candy, confectionary innovation, and having a little fun,” says Jonathan Ryckman, Senior Vice President of Sales. “Our goal is to broaden our appeal with consumers on every level, from the visual aspects to product innovation to our simple ingredients, and of course the great taste of our organic candy.”

 

In addition to showcasing their new look, products, and packaging, YumEarth will be doing some good. Partnering with Give Kids The World (GKTW), YumEarth will have a photo booth, complete with a step-and-repeat, red carpet, and photo props. For each visitor to stop by and take a photo, YumEarth will donate a family sized bag of their candy to GKTW. Limited edition GKTW Candy Land games will also be awarded periodically to photo booth participants.

 

“Sweets & Snacks is really a fun trade show and in the midst of all that fun, we wanted to also find a way to continue giving back to the children who could use more sweet in their lives,” says Kimberly Pia, Director of Digital Marketing. “At our core, YumEarth was started to make sweets for children who couldn’t have traditional candy, so continuing our work with Give Kids The World furthers our mission and helps bring smiles to those who need them most.”

 

YumEarth will be welcoming the greater confectionary community to booth 2000 during the Sweets & Snacks Convention with sweet treats, smiles, and a chance to do some good.
