LA PORTE, IND. — American Licorice Co., maker of Sour Punch and Red Vines candy, is launching Aprati Foods, a new hard candy brand. The line is the company’s first new product line since it introduced Sour Punch Straws in 1990.
Made with ingredients sustainably sourced from Cambodia, the Aprati Foods portfolio includes two hard candy assortments featuring varieties inspired by the local flavors of Cambodia: fruit-flavored Frutati and cafe-inspired Mocati. The Frutati candy comes in blueberry yuzu, pineapple passionfruit and green apple mango flavors, while the Mocati candy comes in caramel macchiato, mocha mint and espresso flavors.
“These hard candies introduce flavor profiles that are a blend of multi-cultural influences coming together through exotic Asian-inspired flavors, paired with sweet North American flavors,” American Licorice Co.
Frutati and Mocati individually-wrapped hard candies are Non-GMO Project verified, are free from artificial colors and contain fewer than two grams of sugar per piece.
“At American Licorice Co., we are always striving for innovation and bringing new and exciting products to our fans and consumers,” said Kristi Shafer, vice-president of marketing for American Licorice Co. “We are so thrilled to announce our new brand Aprati Foods and introduce the new Frutati and Mocati candies to the world.”
