Albanese Confectionery Group Inc. answers consumer demand for flavorful candy

ULTIMATE™ 8 Flavor Gummi Bears™, a new and unique gummi line from Albanese Confectionery Group, Inc., was just announced as the WINNER in the Natural Products Expo West 2020 NEXTY Consumer Choice Awards. Albanese, whose fans deem the “World’s Best” gummies, elevates the gummi tasting experience in their new ULTIMATE™ line by using their signature texture, one-of-a-kind juicy true-to-fruit natural flavors, and colors from real fruits and vegetables.

The ULTIMATE™ 8 Flavor Gummi Bears™ are being recognized as a Consumer Choice in the category of Food & Beverage on the NEXTY internationally coveted list. "We are thrilled the consumers loved our new product as much as we do,” said Bethany Albanese. “Taste and texture have always been our bottom-line, and we have never cut a single corner on ingredients. The ULTIMATE™ line is no exception. We crafted each flavor with care, skill, and passion. We’re also proud to say that these gummies have natural flavors, colors from fruits and vegetables, are gluten free, fat free, MSG free, dairy free, and they are made in the USA.”

Through the New Hope Network, the NEXTY Awards recognize innovative, inspirational, and integrity-driven products in the natural products industry. The NEXTY Consumer Choice Award winner is determined by 1000 health-focused consumers who elected to sample products from NEXTY and provide valuable feedback on their products.
