GoNaturally Organic Candy Now Available in 8 Different Flavors!
Hillside, NJ --- Following the success of its GoNaturally line of organic candy, Hillside Candy has added two additional flavors to its collection: Blood Orange and Iced Mint Mango. These flavors will begin to ship in January 2011.
“GoNaturally has been a phenomenal success,” states Ted Cohen, owner and President of Hillside Candy. “The market has enthusiastically welcomed organic candy and we are pleased to add additional flavors to the GoNaturally line.”
The candy, which has organic brown rice syrup and evaporated cane juice as its base ingredients (organic sugar), is gluten free. It is free of preservatives and chemicals and is Kosher/ Halal. The candy is made in America, specifically, in New Jersey.
The new flavors were created after lengthy research. “Blood Orange is a perfect flavor for consumers who have embraced an organic lifestyle. It’s an organic-type flavor. As for the iced mint mango….mint is always a popular seller. Tropical fruits, especially mango, have gained a lot of interest. By combining both flavors, the taste is refreshing, sweet and a little unusual.”
In addition to these two new flavors, GoNaturally is available in Apple, Cherry, Ginger, Honey, Honey Lemon and Pomegranate.
Not only is the candy organic, there is an environmental component to the story: the twist wrappers and peg bags are recyclable.
The SRP is $2.99 per 3.5 oz stand up bag. All flavors are available in 15 lb cases too.

Hillside Candy's GoNaturally Line Responds to a Need
Hillside, NJ --- Hillside Candy's USDA certified GoNaturally Organic hard candy continues to be a hit!! The market has embraced this product and can be found in stores across America including Whole Foods, Wegmans and TJ Maxx.
The delicious candy was developed in response to the growing organic movement and demand for better-for-you foods.
Organic food sales continue to grow even during recessionary times. Sales, in 2009, were nearly $6.2 billion dollars.
Organic food cuts across all classes and demographics. More than 50% of Americans purchased organic foods in the past year. With health issues and food contamination cases in the news, people are looking for safer, cleaner, more natural food and drink.
GoNaturally Organic Hard Candy is available in 6 flavors: honey lemon, cherry, ginger, honey apple and pomegranate. All of the candy's twist wrappers, stand up pouches, and display case are recyclable.
The candy can be found not only in stores across America, but in international countries such as Saudi Arabia, Hong Kong, Curaco, Korea, Australia and Israel. Overseas, the name of the candy is Go Organic, instead of GoNaturally.
