Denver-based Hammond's Candies wins 'Most Innovative New Product of the Year'
Peanut Butter & Jelly Milk Chocolate Bar' claims top honors at Chicago expo.
June 22, 2012
DENVER – At the recent SWEETS & SNACKS EXPO® held in Chicago, the National Confectioners Association named Denver-based Hammond's Candies' new Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Milk Chocolate Bar as the industry's Most Innovative New Product of the Year. Competing against national brands such as Hershey and Wrigley, Hammond's Candies PB&J Milk Chocolate Bar was among nearly 200 products submitted for consideration. The panel analyzed taste, concepts, packaging and salability of each entry.
"Our PB&J Milk Chocolate Bar was crafted around fun flavor profiles that would be exciting for kids and adults alike," said Andrew Schuman, president and CEO of Hammond's Candies. "While so many other new chocolate bar launches are based on exotic flavor profiles, we crafted a delicious confection based on a classic snack that takes us back to our childhood with each bite."
Made with milk chocolate, peanut butter filling and seedless raspberry jelly, this candy bar screams "summertime" and is now available in more than 100 stores in the Denver Metro area or at the Hammond's Candies factory store at 5735 N. Washington St., in north Denver. Already world-famous for its handcrafted, oversized candy canes, beautifully spun ribbon candy, and stunning lollipops, the Hammond's Candies factory is a Denver must-see tourist attraction, with free tours of the candy factory. Whether you're a local resident planning a day excursion or an out-of-town visitor cruising the Mile High City, Hammond's is a unique sight to see and taste.
