TORIE & HOWARD IS INTRODUCING A NEW FLAVOR OF ITS
ORGANIC, NON GMO HARD CANDY AT THE SUMMER FANCY FOOD SHOW
The new Meyer Lemon & Raspberry extends the company’s original line of four sophisticated flavors, and samples will be available at Booth 1555.
NEW MILFORD, Conn., June 16, 2014 – Torie & Howard is adding to its line of organic, kosher and Non GMO hard candy with a lusciously tart and berry sweet Meyer Lemon & Raspberry flavor.The new flavor is being introduced at the 2014 Summer Fancy Food Show, and samples will be available in Booth 1555.
Torie & Howard Meyer Lemon & Raspberry will be available for shipment in early fall and is packaged in the company’s signature colorful 2-ounce recyclable steel tins, said Torie Burke, company co-founder.The new flavor is light, bright and clean with the right balance of sweet and sour thanks to the slightly sweeter and somewhat floral tartness of the Meyer lemons and the fresh sweetness of the berries, Burke said.Meyer Lemon & Raspberry is the company’s first line extension since it launched with four flavors at the 2012 Winter Fancy Food Show.
Torie & Howard Meyer Lemon & Raspberry is crafted with natural flavors, and the jewel-shaped candy gets its color naturally from red cabbage, purple carrots, and organic carrot, apple and blackcurrant, she said.The candy is USDA organic and kosher certified and contains no GMOs, preservatives, artificial dyes, casein, soy or gluten, and each candy is just 12 calories.
“We have lots of ideas for wonderful flavors, but I can only describe this combination of Meyer lemon and raspberry as super delicious,” Burke said.“Our goal from the start was for our candy to taste like scrumptious fruit straight from the garden, and this new flavor is so bright you can almost taste the summer sunshine.”
The new flavor will hit stores late Autumn 2014.
Other Torie & Howard organic hard candy flavors include California Pomegranate and Sweet Freestone Nectarine, Italian Tarocco Blood Orange & Wildflower Honey, D’Anjou Pear & Ceylon Cinnamon, and Pink Grapefruit & Tupelo Honey. The tins have a suggested retail price of $3.99 to $4.99 and are available eight per case with 12 cases to a master case.The four original flavors also are sold in bulk and are available in a handbag gift package with a suggested retail price of $7.99 to $8.99.More information is available by calling 1-888-826-9554 or online at www.TorieAndHoward.com.
