Trick or Treat? YummyEarth® Organic Gummy Bears Are All Treat with No Scary Ingredients

Yummy Earth
YummyEarth, the #1 Organic Candy Company in the United States, Helps “Green” Halloween with the Launch of USDA Certified Gummy Bears in Fantastic Fruit Flavors: Pomegranate Pucker, Strawberry Smash and Sour Apple Tart

RIDGEWOOD, N.J. --(Business Wire)-- Sep 23, 2009 YummyEarth, the #1 organic candy company famous for its 21 flavors of organic candy, announced today that they have created the world’s first USDA and EU certified organic gummy bears with the quintessential bouncy texture of a traditional gummy bear. YummyEarth Organic Gummy Bears and YummyEarth Organic Gummy Worms launch just in time to make this Halloween a more kid and earth friendly holiday.

Founded by two dads who couldn’t find great tasting treats for their kids that weren’t filled with corn syrup and artificial flavors, YummyEarth prides itself on making organic candy that is 100% all natural, made with real fruit extracts and planet friendly ingredients. The YummyEarth Organic Gummy Bears and YummyEarth Organic Gummy Worms are gluten-free, fat-free, dairy-free, soy-free, GMO-free, peanut-free, tree-nut free and have no artificial dyes, no MSG and no corn syrup. Organic purple carrots and black currants are used to give them their fantastic colors. Each serving is loaded with Vitamin C. YummyEarth is just as proud of what goes into the candy as what is left out.

“Making wholesome, organic Halloween treats for my children and my neighbor’s kids gives me a real sense of pride,” said Rob Wunder, co-founder of YummyEarth. The new YummyEarth Organic Gummy Bears and YummyEarth Organic Gummy Worms provide parents with an alternative choice this Halloween. Delicious and exploding with flavor, YummyEarth candy makes Halloween just as fun as always but greener and healthier. “We have had such an overwhelming response from retailers that we are already working on gummy bears for Easter!” adds Rob.

YummyEarth pioneered the organic candy category in 2005, forging the way into the mainstream. YummyEarth Organic Lollipops and YummyEarth Organic Drops were the first organic candy at Toys R Us, Borders Books, Party City and Bed Bath and Beyond. “YummyEarth Organic Lollipops and YummyEarth Organic Gummy Bears are priced the same as other brands of premium candy, but without all the artificial stuff found in their products. It is extremely important, especially in this economy, to make products which are competitively priced,” said Rob.

YummyEarth Organic Gummy Bears and YummyEarth Gummy Worms join the YummyEarth candy family, which includes the lollipops that Phil Lempert, Today Show Food Critic, called “the best lollipop I’ve ever tasted.” YummyEarth offers 21 unique flavors, including Pomegranate Pucker, Blood Orange Cocktail, Strawberry Smash and Chile Mambo Mango, and a range of candy products, such as YummyEarth Organic Lollipops, YummyEarth Organic Vitamin C Pops and YummyEarth Organic Drops.
