SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 17, 2013) - Gimbal's Fine Candies today reveals its newest product, Cinnamon Lovers hearts just in time for the holiday season. Made with real cinnamon oil, Cinnamon Lovers shiny red hearts are bursting with flavor, and boast all of the gluten and allergen-free properties associated with the Gimbal's name.

"We are so excited to introduce the Cinnamon Lovers hearts to our family of candies," said Karin Vollrath, sales and marketing director of Gimbal's Fine Candies. "Our Cherry Lovers and Sour Lovers hearts were such a hit that we wanted to bring a similar product to all those spicy fans out there; thus the Cinnamon Lovers hearts were born."

Unlike similar products on the market, each Cinnamon Lovers hearts contains real cinnamon oil. Cinnamon oil has been recognized for its various health benefits including acting as a natural anti-oxidant and weight reducer in some cases. In keeping with Gimbal's promise to provide products that all can enjoy, Cinnamon Lovers hearts are gluten-free and free of the "Major Eight" food allergens that are responsible for more than 90 percent of food allergies.

"We believe that everyone, including those who live with food allergens, should be able to enjoy delicious candy without worry," continued Vollrath. "To ensure that is the case with all of Gimbal's products, the 'Major Eight' food allergens are not allowed in our production or packaging facilities."

Cinnamon Lovers hearts join Gimbal's existing line of products that include Cherry Lovers® Candies, Sour Lovers® Candies, Gourmet Jelly Beans, Sour Gourmet Jelly Beans and All Natural Licorice Scotties®.
