NEW MILFORD, Comm., May 18, 2015 – Torie & Howard’s organic, Non-GMO hard candy was selected as an “on-the-go essential” on Oprah.com as a treat to defeat mindless snacking.

In an Oprah.com article by Candace Braun Davison titled, “9 Things Every Woman Should Have in Her Handbag,” Torie & Howard organic hard candy was called The Midday Pick-Me-Up, according to Torie Burke, Torie & Howard co-founder. Burke also recently took the silver in ConfectioneryNews.com’s 2014 Personality of the Year competition as runner-up to Jelly Belly R&D manager Ambrose Lee.

“For those Must. Resist. The. Vending. Machine. Moments: It’s good to have a low-calorie treat within arm’s reach,” Oprah.com’s Braun Davison wrote. “These organic hard candies are gluten-, dairy- and corn syrup-free, making them a guilt-free way to curb mindless snacking.” The candies also were named to O The Oprah Magazine’s coveted O List in the January 2014 issue.

The Personality of the Year award that Burke received in January “recognizes an unheralded individual in the chocolate, sugar, confectionery, gum and biscuit industries who has excelled in R&D, corporate social responsibility or has demonstrated business acumen,” according to an article by ConfectioneryNews.com editor Oliver Nieburg.
