Deliciously Craveable Chewy SweeTARTS Candies Get a Massive Update

Now on store shelves nationwide, Chewy SweeTARTS is reintroducing three multi-sensory, colorful products to its portfolio – all of which are BOTH delightfully sweet and delicately tart candies:

  • SweeTARTS Mini Chewy: Tiny in size but big on taste, SweeTARTS Mini Chewy deliver the classic SweeTARTS flavor in a mouth-watering sensation that’s now equal parts sweeter and tangier.
  • SweeTARTS Chewy Extreme Sours: Pucker up! SweeTARTS Chewy Sours turns up the tart with candies that are powerfully sour and finish with a touch of sweet, now with a bolder, thrill-seeking flavor.
  • SweeTARTS Giant Chewy: Giant Chewy SweeTARTS take the amazing, sweet and tart flavor combination of Original SweeTARTS to the next level with supersized, over-the-top fun, now with an improved chewy candy texture.

“At SweeTARTS, we love making candies that are as vibrant and bold as our consumers who enjoy eating them,” said Ashley Incarnato, Marketing Director for the SweeTARTS brand at Ferrara. “Our chewy candies are fan-favorites, embracing the duality of our product that is BOTH sweet and tart.  When we saw an opportunity to bring an even bolder, fruitier candy to the market, we jumped at the chance to be classic AND fresh with this Chewy SweeTARTS relaunch. We can’t wait for our fans to try the new line-up, and who knows, maybe even come aboard as the #CEOofChewySweeTARTS!”
