Naperville, IL, May 02, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Consumers are pushing to incorporate organic and healthier sweets into their normal eating habits. An avid candy lover himself, Dino Romano launched RealCandyBar.com this April to ensure that other ‘candyvores’ had healthier candy & chocolate options available to them.
“Over the past few years, many organic and allergen-free candy creations have been brought to market, either from your traditional candy companies or start-up businesses,” says Romano. In fact, sales of certified organic foods are growing faster than any other segment of the food industry. Mike Selvan of FoodEditorials.com advises that annual sales in the United States are topping $29.7 billion. Organic chocolate alone posted nearly 20% growth in 2013 according to Packaged Facts, a consumer market research company.
“It’s all in response to peoples’ passion for healthier, great-tasting candy with less or no artificial ingredients,” adds Romano. “To piggyback that, people are voting with their dollars for sweets made without genetically-modified organisms and 'GMO' has become one of the most popular buzzwords of the decade.”
Companies such as The Real Candy Bar are hoping to bring consumers and alternative food companies together over the Web since many people do not live near stores offering organic sweets made without the top food allergens. Romano says, “Technology has allowed people living in more rural areas to still have access to foods and candies being offered by organic businesses. All you need is an Internet connection and a mailbox to enjoy a gluten-free candy bar or organic licorice."
