Smashmallow is best known for making a range of marshmallow-based snacks—like naturally gluten-free rice treats and snackable marshmallows—and it is venturing into a new category with the creation of its new low-sugar gummies. These confections set themselves apart from comparable products in a number of ways, including the fact that the treats are shaped like small hot air balloons that tie in with Smashmallow's packaging. Additionally, the low-sugar sweets contain just three grams of sugar per each 15-gummy serving, and are made with a mix of organic cane sugar and the naturally occurring sugar in prebiotic tapioca fiber, rather than sugar alcohols or stevia.
Smashgummy is being launched in two varieties, a sour flavor and a fruity option, which are expected to be seen on retail shelves as of 2020.
