Java Gum won the 16th Annual Convenience Store News Best New Products Award in the ‘Gum and Mints’ category. Unlike some contests, CSN’s Best New Products Awards are chosen by a consumer panel administered by New York-based research firm Past Times Marketing.
Java Gum was up against world-known brands like Wrigley, Hershey and Kraft to name a few. “This win helps put Java Gum on the map and clearly indicates that we are well on the way to become the leader in the caffeinated gum category,” said Al Tiso, COO, Java Gum.
Available in peppermint and spearmint, Java Gum fights drowsiness as effectively as a 10-oz. cup of coffee, but leaves breath minty-fresh. A single pack of gum (8 pieces) costs less than an eighth of the average cost of energy drinks, works up to five times faster, and yields a higher profit. Each piece of Java Gum packs 65 milligrams of caffeine and is both sugar and gluten free. Java Gum retails at $2.99.
