DENVER, March 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Hammond's Candies, the confectioner known for using high quality ingredients to create new twists on old-fashioned treats, is at it again with their latest announcement of new chocolate bar flavors. One of a family of brands owned by the 2007-established Hammond's Brands, Hammond's today announced details about its Cinnamon Churro, Midnight Snack, and Fortune Cookie flavors, which will be available for retailer purchase on May 22nd.
Cinnamon Churro features milk chocolate and a cinnamon-vanilla glaze center in a nod to the hot fried-dough dessert sold by street vendors and at cafés and fairs. Midnight Snack pairs dark chocolate with pretzel, cookie, brittle, marshmallow, and cereal so late-night snackers don't have to choose which flavor fits their fancy. Fortune Cookie combines dark chocolate with cookie bits and comes with the added surprise of a fortune, lucky numbers, and a Chinese word pronunciation guide on the inner-backside of each bar's wrapper.
"Consumers have spoken: They love their chocolate! In fact, in the 52 weeks ending April 30, 2016 consumers spent $21.5 billion on candy. Chocolate specifically is a leader of this pack, generating $11.2 billion in sales in that same period,"1 said Andrew Schuman, Hammond's President and CEO. "We're excited to use our high-quality ingredients and age-old recipes to take much-loved chocolate to the next level with new, comforting flavors that are reminiscent of desserts that consumers love."
The new flavors join traditional favorites like Sea Salt Caramel, Cookie Dough, and Peanut Butter Cup, as well as other fun and award-winning unique flavors like Pigs N' Taters, Peanut Butter and Red Velvet Cake to round out Hammond's chocolate bar line. Each flavor is available in a 12-count Display Ready Case and comes with a suggested retail price of $2.99 to $3.49.

Hammond's Candies began delighting candy lovers with artisan candy canes, beautifully spun ribbon candy, and larger-than-life lollipops when it was founded by the Hammond family in 1920, making it Colorado's favorite handmade confectioner for decades. In 2007, the company became the Hammond's Brands that it is today through its acquisition by current President and CEO Andrew Schuman, growing from a much-loved, local candy company to a leading gourmet sweet provider with national regard (and has doubled the number of employees). Since then, Hammond's has gone on to acquire such companies as McCraw's Candies in 2010 and Old Dominion Peanut Company in 2012 as well as to gain impressive recognitions for their brand packaging and product innovation.
