CandyCan™, a new brand on a mission to make gummy vitamins more enjoyable, introduces the first functional gummy in the traditional candy space with its new line of plant-based, low sugar, clean label functional gummies.
Consumers are actively focusing on their health more and more these days and to maintain a well-balanced & healthy body, people are continuously turning towards vitamins. Vitamins have traditionally been taken in the form of pills and powders, but more recently, gummy vitamins have exploded onto the market. Unfortunately, many gummy vitamins are made with harmful ingredients like glucose-spiking sugar and animal byproducts like gelatin. Even more frustrating is that these gummy vitamins taste amazing and are fun to pop, yet the serving size is typically limited to just two gummies. This leads to consumers overeating their vitamins, which could potentially be harmful in large doses.
This is where CandyCan™ jumps in to do what other candy can’t. CandyCan™ comes in a full bag serving size of ~20 gummies/bag. The gummies are made with clean label ingredients and a low sugar formula to allow consumers the ability to feel good about what they are putting in their bodies. CandyCan™ also replaces gelatin with fruit-based pectin for a plant-based solution to create a yummy gummy texture and taste. Providing both FOCUS and SLEEP varieties, CandyCan™ is ready to be with you through all parts of your day.
Made with an incredibly delicious formula, CandyCan™ gummies come in both fruity and sour flavor varieties. The SLEEP gummies and their fruity bears utilize melatonin and lemon balm to help achieve a restful sleep. The FOCUS gummies and their sour bears incorporate caffeine, L theanine, and alpha GPC for a symbiotically beneficial nootropic. All the products are non-GMO, plant-based, gluten-free, and boast a low sugar, high fiber nutrition label.
“Having been unfortunately diagnosed with cancer last year, I saw firsthand how important it is to be aware of what we’re putting into our bodies. We continued to build CandyCan™ while I was undergoing chemotherapy treatments and it just reinforced my belief even more that “food is medicine”. I truly believe that everything we eat should provide a positive benefit, rather than drag us down like traditional candy does once the sugar rush wears off. I’m happy to say I’m cancer-free and couldn’t be more excited to bring our Sweet Benefits to the world!” – Ryan Wiltse, Co-Founder
