NEW MILFORD, Conn., Oct. 22, 2015 – Torie & Howard’s new organic Chewie Fruities and organic hard candy have been recognized as healthier options for Halloween by Real Simple, New York magazine and others.

The Chewie Fruities candy, introduced in May, was termed a sophisticated Halloween candy and an alternative to a prominent conventional candy by New York magazine, said Torie Burke, company co-founder. Chewie Fruities also recently was named a finalist in the Martha Stewart American Made Awards. A 10-ounce Halloween package of the hard candy is available, and Real Simple included it in its “6 Spooktacular Halloween Candies” feature, am New York magazine named it a healthy candy to try this Halloween, and Grub Street called it a “Next Level Candy for the Discerning Trick-or-Treater,” Burke said. The hard and chewy candies also have gotten positive reviews from bloggers including Retro Housewife Goes Green, Organic Food Scoop, Things In Review, Bon Calme, Eco Child’s Play, and Sure Foods Living.

“More and more consumers are looking for organic options, particularly for children, and we are seeing a lot of interest in the new Chewie Fruities, just as we have for our organic hard candy line,” Burke said. “It is an honor to gain so much recognition and such glowing reviews, and it feels good to know we’re on the right track with healthier snack options that are also delicious.”
