New Gluten-Free Gummi Bears Are All Go!

Confectionery distributor GDLbrands newest delectable confectionery range of gummi bears are set to put a smile on New Zealand children as well as their health conscious mothers.

Designed for “new-age” confectionery eaters, GDL director Frank Geaney says Go Gummi’s taste great and are set to become firm favourites for consumers seeking a healthier treat the whole family can enjoy.

“Market feedback from our customers shows that many people want not just sugar and artificial colours out of their diet, but gluten as well.”

The introduction of the new Go Gummi’s brand means the soft and delicious taste of the famous gummi bear can now be enjoyed guilt free! Go Gummi’s enticing flavours promise to seduce your entire family’s taste buds.

Go Gummies are a perfect treat for children who do not tolerate gluten or artificial flavours, artificial colours or need less sugar consumption in their diets.

“You often see gluten free cakes and biscuits being sold, but very rarely do you see gluten free mainstream confectionery. These are perfect for mothers who want to give their children a healthier treat.”

Go Gummies are completely free from artificial colours and flavours and come in a range of mouth watering flavour options. The natural range of Go Gummi’s are gluten free and available in a mixed bag of 6 popular flavours, they also come in orange or apple single flavoured bags. The range of sugar free, gluten free Go Gummies are available in a mix which includes pineapple, apple, orange, grape, raspberry and strawberry flavours.

Gummi bears were first invented in the 1920s by a German confectioner Hans Riegel and have been a global confectionery phenomenon ever since. Geaney’s Go Gummi’s is a New Zealand brand manufactured in the United States under strict quality control requirements.

GDLbrands’aims to become New Zealand’s leading distributor of gluten-free, gummi bears. “We want to command this space and explore further opportunities that will combine real health benefits with delicious confectionery.”
