TORIE & HOWARD ORGANIC HARD CANDY NAMED KOSHERFEST’S BEST NEW CANDY

Sunday, October 28th 2012 @ 12:59 PM

The organic hard candy also adds a Certificate of Achievement from the National Confectionery Sales Association to its earlier first place win as Coffee Fest’s Best New Consumables Product.

 

            NEW MILFORD, Conn., Oct. 26, 2012 – Torie & Howard, a producer of all natural, organic hard candy, has been named the Best New Candy in the Kosherfest New Product Competition, and Quality Frozen Foods of Brooklyn, which represents the new candy, will be presented the award during Kosherfest, which will be held Nov. 13 and 14 in Secaucus, N.Y., said Torie Burke, company co-founder.

            The annual Kosherfest New Product Competition recognizes the best new kosher products at retail and in foodservice.  Product entries in 16 categories are reviewed by a jury of kosher retail and foodservice buyers, distributors, chefs and industry experts, who determine the winning products based on many factors, including taste, price, and sale-ability, according to Kosherfest.

            The organic hard candy also was recognized Oct. 20 in the National Confectionery Sales Association’s (NCSA) New Product Awards in Tampa, Fla., with a Certificate of Achievement, and earlier this year won first place in Coffee Fest’s Best New Products Consumables Category, Burke said.  “Howard Slatkin and I are thrilled that our candy has earned these recognitions.  This all began when Howard and I wanted a truly satisfying, but healthier, snack for ourselves, and we are so pleased that a lot of people are enjoying our candy for the same reasons.”

            Torie & Howard organic hard candies are designed to reach a discriminating, health-and-nutrition-conscious customer and are USDA Organic and Kosher certified.  They are available in four sophisticated flavor combinations:  Italian Tarocco Blood Orange and Wildflower Honey, California Pomegranate and Sweet Freestone Nectarine, D’Anjou Pear and Ceylon Cinnamon, and Pink Grapefruit and Tupelo Honey.

            All of the candy is free of preservatives, additives, and artificial flavorings.  They are available in colorful 2-ounce recyclable steel tins with a suggested retail price of $4.99.  The candy also is available in a playful handbag-shaped gift package and in bulk.  More information is available by calling 1-888-826-9554 or online at www.TorieAndHoward.com.
