SmartSweets has launched Caramels, the brand's first non-fruity innovation with the lowest amount of sugar of all its offerings.

Made without artificial sweeteners, sugar alcohols or added sugar, SmartSweets Caramels have 94 percent less sugar than other soft caramels and contain only 1 gram of sugar per bag.

The Caramels are available for purchase in retailers nationwide including  Amazon, Target and Whole Foods Market, plus direct-to-consumer at They retail for $3.59.

To date, SmartSweets core product line has featured fruity gummies, with the brand recently expanding into hard candy with its SmartSweets Jolly Gems and Lollipops launches. Caramels bring the brand into a new category, helping SmartSweets expand its audience.

“The launch of Caramels is a dream come true for SmartSweets,” said Founder Tara Bosch. “Gummies have been the foundation of our brand, but we want to continue to push the boundaries and introduce new categories of candy that you know and love from childhood without the sugar. Our R&D team worked tirelessly to perfect Caramels and deliver the beloved rich and creamy flavor without the excessive amounts of sugar in traditional caramels. I am so proud of this launch.”
