Oomph! Sweets: Mini Chews
Low-sugar candy maker Oomph! Sweets announced a mini version of its fan-favorite chews in Dark Chocolate, Lemon, Passion Fruit, and Green Apple flavors.
The Mini Chews are 5-gram, square-shaped treats made with natural, functional ingredients like cherry acerola, lion’s mane, and apple cider vinegar. They’re also vegan, gluten-free, and keto-friendly and contain 110 calories or less, 1 gram or less of sugar, and 4 to 6 grams of net carbs per serving.
The new Chews will debut at Natural Products Expo West next week (booth #685). They’ll be available for the suggested price of $4.00 per bag through the brand’s website and on Amazon, with in-store availability late in the year.
