Goody Good Stuff now available in the U.S.

The company’s gummy candies are available at 7-Eleven stores nationwide

March 20, 2013

Goody Good Stuff is bringing the good stuff to the States.

The company has announced that its all-natural gummy candies are now available in the United States at 7-Eleven stores across the country.

“We’ve been in the U.S. in a few natural grocery stores, but this is our first national U.S. distributor,” says Melissa Burton, Goody Good Stuff’s managing director.

The international convenience store picked up three Goody Good Stuff flavors for distribution – Cola Breeze, Sour Mix and Match and Tropical Fruit – all of which are doing well in the market, reports Burton.

“It’s been about four weeks since the products were released, but we’re very happy with the response so far. The social media and e-mail response has been amazing,” she says.

With its 7-Eleven launch proving successful, Goody Good Stuff has plans to find a mass drugstore and supermarket distributor.

“Like CVS or Walgreens, and we’re really looking into Target. They’re our next target,” Burton says.

Goody Good Stuff is an all-new natural gummy candy range that is made with a plant-derived bio-gum technology, eliminating the need for animal-based gelatin, which most traditional gummy sweets use. Having appeared in O, The Oprah Magazine, the gummies contain only the highest quality blend of ingredients, including natural fruit juices and extracts. All Goody Good Stuff products are vegetarian, fat-free, meat-free, dairy-free, nut-free and halal- and Kosher-certified.
