YumEarth was founded on the commitment of only using the simplest ingredients in their products so each new product is gluten free, Non-GMO, USDA organic, vegan, free from the top 8 food allergens, and made without high fructose corn syrup.

  • Black Licorice – this black licorice mixes classic and bold flavoring and has the distinction of passing the Prop 65 requirements in California.
  • Fruity Licorice – the naturally flavored strawberry, peach, and pomegranate licorice, flavored with real fruit juice, is bursting with flavor.
  • Sour Beans – these cool beans are getting a total upgrade with new flavors, an official USDA organic certification, and a punchy tart taste.
  • Sour Twists – watermelon and lemonade team up for these never-before-tasted, pucker-inducing chews.

“We pride ourselves on being responsive to customer feedback,” says YumEarth CEO, Michael Sands. “Some of our customers wanted more sour products and USDA organic licorice and we’re excited that our hard work has paid off with these craveable candies.”

YumEarth’s new products come as the entire candy brand unveils new packaging, an interactive, user-friendly new website, and an expanded social media presence. YumEarth’s new packaging and products will be on display this week during the Natural Products Expo West.
