VP of Sales Teresa Lafferty, remarked, “We are excited to be partnering with Goodness Me; we believe that Healthy Hippo products will bring in new consumers to the low sugar candy market by offering a gummy sweetened with pure monk fruit juice concentrate and leaves no aftertaste. We know many consumers do not want stevia or sugar alcohols as sweeteners, and until now there were no other options.”
