Candy production and advertising has focused on children for many years. In 2006 something changed all that. The Children’s Food and Beverage Advertising Initiative was created in response to growing concerns about overweight children. Food and candy producers agreed to voluntarily increase their focus on promoting healthy lifestyles and eating choices. Leading candy companies including Hershey’s, Mars and Nestle are committed to this program.This change inspired a wide range of wonderful new products that focus primarily on candy for adults. Healthy adult candy options may seem like a contradiction but the trend shows that adults are in fact buying more candy for themselves. Here is a list of some of the wild new flavor options you can find today:
- Pink grapefruit grape-seed Gummy Bears
- Reishi mushroom and walnut dark chocolate
- Bacon and chocolate of every kind
- Sea-salt caramels, natural mango, hot chili, and odd vinegar candy
Organic sweeteners and genuine fruit extracts are part of making candy healthier. Nutritional enhancements such as vitamins are also being explored as a way to promote healthy eating. You can read more about this fantastic new trend via the source link below.
