"Our current customers were requesting a candy corn that not only tasted great but had better ingredients and were safe for those with most allergies," said Michael Sands, CEO of YumEarth. "We did market testing last year and the demand was beyond what we predicted so we are moving forward with a full launch for Halloween 2017."

YumEarth has long been known for its commitment to simple ingredients and consumer convenience, which in turn, led to the development of an allergen friendly candy corn for Halloween. The seasonal single-serving snack packs are available in 10, 24, and 50 count packs as well as 5oz resealable bags and the new 2oz grab-and-go size – perfect to hand out to trick-or-treaters or indulge in yourself.

Along with the USDA organic candy corn, YumEarth will be offering seasonal lollipops and gummy bats and jackolanterns which will all be USDA organic, non-GMO, vegan, gluten free, soy free, made in a peanut free facility, made without high fructose corn syrup, and flavored and colored with real fruit juice. The individually wrapped lollipops and single serving snack packs of gummies are available several different sizes including a variety pack assortment.

“Halloween is all about handing out candy and serving up smiles,” says Kimberly Pia, Director of Digital Marketing for YumEarth. “It’s important to everyone at YumEarth that children with allergies or dietary restrictions don’t feel left out on this spooky holiday.”

The YumEarth seasonal candy line will be available at both brick and mortar stores and online at www.yumearth.com/halloween
