Chicago — Gluten- and GMO-free caramels and fruit chews from The Lovely Candy Co. have been selected for inclusion in Target Brands, Inc. “Choose Well” sections, according to the candymaker.
The special section is designed for health-conscious consumers, Lovely Candy reports, adding the retailer is a good fit for its products, which are free from artificial colors and flavors as well as high fructose corn syrup. In addition, the caramels are made using milk from cows not treated with rBST, a synthetic hormone, and the fruit chews are vegan.
