Summer Fun with HI-CHEW!
We LOVE HI-CHEW candy. In fact, it’s kind of a given around here that if you have a birthday, you are going to get Hi-Chew from another family member. It’s a great gift to give, especially since we all benefit when it gets shared!
We also pack Hi-Chew in our sports travel bag and almost always have a bag of HI-CHEW with us for camping trips and outings. Last year for Christmas the kids got my hubby a HUGE (and I mean HUGE!) box of HI-CHEWS that literally lasted us through the winter!
Did you know that HI-CHEW products are gluten free, nut free, and made with real fruit juices and purees? This is one reason that we keep them on hand, everyone loves them and they are a great fit for school and sport snacks as well. If you haven’t yet tried HI-CHEW candies let me try to explain them to you. They are these soft little individually wrapped sticks that are kind of a mix between a taffy and a fruit chew. I love the flavors, but I also love the texture, they just feel so good in your mouth, and I also love that they don’t stick to your teeth. They are really unique, and really easy to get hooked on!
The actually history behind HI-CHEW products is actually pretty cool, these candies didn’t just come to be over night, they are the founder and creator of HI-CHEW Taichiro Morinaga actually started creating candies in 1865 and as an immigrant from the southern Japanese island of Kyushu, proves that no dream is to big, if you just stick to your passion. It’s actually a really neat story, and my kids really enjoyed reading the history behind HI-CHEW products.
HI-CHEW sticks come in seven flavors including Strawberry, Cherry, Grape, Green Apple, Mango, Banana, and Kiwi, as well as fun mixed bags like the Tropical Mix, which includes Banana, Mango, and Melon. My personal favorite is the Green Apple, however I just tried the Melon for the first time and it’s a close second. It tastes amazingly like melon, and it smells delicious!
If sour is your thing, HI-CHEW Sours are available in Lemon, Lime and Grapefruit flavors. We love their new addition of HI-CHEW Fizzies which have real soda flavors and “fizz” to them that makes them a hit with the kids. They also recently added HI-CHEW Bites, which have all the chewy goodness of HI-CHEW in a crisp candy shell. My kids really love these (and they are great for little hands) but I personally enjoy the original HI-CHEW sticks that are individually wrapped because I can tuck them anywhere: purse, vehicle console, travel bag. You name it, there are HI-CHEWS tucked all over the place.
