The Lovely Candy Company's non-GMO candies now available at retailer
CHICAGO, Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Lovely Candy Company's recently introduced caramels and fruit chews, which offer premium, better-for-you ingredients and are non-GMO and certified gluten-free, are now available at most U.S. Target stores.
The Lovely Candy Company LLC was founded in 2013 by Chicago entrepreneur Mike Nakamura and his wife Jackie after they sought but could not find a consciously crafted, better-for-you candy on the market. The all-natural product line immediately struck a chord with national retailers including HomeGoods and Hallmark, along with regional grocers such as The Fresh Market, Giant Eagle Market District, Bristol Farms and Gelson's.
Target is carrying Lovely Candy 6-ounce bags of Original Chewy Caramels, Chocolate Swirl Caramels and Superfruit Chews, in Cranberry, Raspberry and Blueberry, in its candy aisles.
"Target is an ideal retail partner for Lovely Candy. We share the desire to continually innovate and merchandise offerings with high-quality ingredients," said Nakamura. "There is no better time to introduce delicious candies that meet the fast-growing demand for gluten-free, non-GMO and certified kosher, and Target's consumer base is the perfect fit for our premium products."
The entire line is free of artificial flavors and colors, and contains no high fructose corn syrup. The caramels contain rBST-free dairy, and the fruit chews are vegan. The company received its gluten-free certification from the Gluten-Free Certification Organization in July 2013.
