Justin's Candy Bars Now Available to Natural Foods Stores Nationwide

Overwhelming response for premium, all-natural candy bars leads to increased distribution network

BOULDER, Colo. (June 12, 2012) – Boulder-based Justin’s , a pioneering and rapidly expanding leader in the organic, all-natural nut butter and confections categories, is proud to announce expanded distribution of its Justin's Candy Bars in all three gourmet flavors: Milk Chocolate Peanut, Dark Chocolate Peanut and Milk Chocolate Almond. Now available to all natural foods retailers across the country, Justin's Candy Bars have tripled sales expectations after a three-month market introduction, and consumer demand continues to build.

"We are thrilled about the response of the candy bars and excited to see this growth curve continue with larger distribution," said founder and CEO, Justin Gold. "Now, we can offer consumers nationwide a better-for-you alternative to the candy bars they've grown up with."

Justin's All-Natural Candy Bars are the perfect blend of premium chocolate, nuts, caramel and nougat. They contain 25% less sugar, 50% more protein and 100% more fiber than the leading conventional candy bar. In addition, Justin's uses only all-natural and organic ingredients, and is free of hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, preservatives, trans fats and gluten.

Justin's will be sampling and taking orders for its all-natural candy bar line at NASFT Fancy Food Show, June 17-19, 2012, at booth # 5507 in the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. For more information, product photos, as well as assistance during the trade show, please contact Lauren Lortie: lauren@justins.com or 720.266.7466.
