Cracked Candy Enters Singapore Market with Food Export's Assistance

by Food Export | Apr 18, 2019
Cracked Candy LLC, a Brooklyn, New York-based candy manufacturer, attended Food Export - Northeast’s Summer Fancy Food Buyers Mission last summer. A three-time participant of Food Export’s Summer Fancy Foods Buyers Mission, Cracked Candy was ready to launch two new flavors and promote their delicious, sugar-free, healthy candy.

The one-on-one meetings with the international buyers at the event led to an order of Cracked Candy valued at $6,300 with another $6,300 of sales projected for the near future.

Cracked Candy is Brooklyn born, handmade, safe for vegans & diabetics.  Not only that, it is certified non-GMO and free from soy, dairy and gluten. Instead of sugar, it is made with xylitol, a plant-based sweetener which is recommended by dentists as it can strengthen teeth and prevent decay.  The candy’s fun name originated because founder Flora Pringle, feels she has ‘cracked’ the idea of candy by creating a guilt free treat. The company now has 6 flavors—Peppermint Ice, Lemon Ice, Cinnamon, Mellow Orange, Watermelon, and Very Berry. Cracked Candy has participated this past year in Food Export’s Food Export Helpline™ services and the Summer Fancy Food Show with growing international interest from foreign markets.
