    With 92% less sugar than regular candy and no taste compromise… Healthy Hippo is a clear win!

    When it comes to sugar, say hello monk fruit and bye to stevia. But why you may ask? The truth is, after tried lots of different natural sweeteners when Healthy Hippo testing their candy and found that Monk Fruit was well, just the best! It has a cleaner, balanced sweetness when compared to stevia, but more importantly it doesn’t have the signature stevia aftertaste and it doesn’t overwhelm the delicious fruit flavors.

    Healthy Hippo believes in high-quality ingredients and are the only North American candy brand to use solely monk fruit juice concentrate to sweeten their candy, giving them that balanced sweetness without the junk – no sugar alcohols, stevia, or allulose! Monk fruit is gut-friendly and doesn’t have the funky aftertaste that stevia products can often have. So they chose to sweeten their candy with only monk fruit juice concentrate because after lots (and lots) of testing, they found it was the clear winner in a pretty big way. 

    Fun fact, did you know that Healthy Hippo is not only low cal, but it’s also been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries as a sore throat remedy? Well, now it’s even being researched for its anti-inflammatory properties! Healthy Hippo Candy is formulated with all-natural ingredients and no preservatives – free of artificial flavors, sweeteners, and sugar alcohols. High in fiber, fully vegan, non-GMO, and made with absolutely nothing artificial! Healthy Hippo candies are made with natural fruit and vegetable juices such as turmeric and spirulina.

    Healthy Hippo takes your tummies seriously, and they know that too high of a fiber content can cause stomach-aches. They keep their fiber content high but still balanced so kids can eat more than one bag with no upset tummies! Each bag is less than 17g of fiber, which means you can indulge safely!

    Healthy Hippo is leading the category as the only low sugar candy brand in North America to have a carbon neutral certification, targeting sustainability improvements from their ingredients to transportation, processing and packaging.

    Can’t decide which to try? Healthy Hippo has got you covered with the Variety Pack! The Hippo Gummies (2) have a sweet, soft, and chewy texture with flavors – including lemon, watermelon, mango, and strawberry. The fruit gummies also come as Sour Hippo Gummies (2), which start off sour and fade to sweet. The Swedish Hippos (2) are tangy, berry sweet and mouthwatering from beginning to end.

    State of Yucatan Launches the Year of Yucatan Gastronomy

    2022 Will Be Dedicated to Increasing Awareness of the State’s Culinary Offerings

    The state of Yucatan’s Ministry of Tourism (SEFOTUR) will launch a new campaign aiming to increase awareness of the state’s culinary offering, rich cultural history, and current modern gastronomy as an important part of its tourism offering.  Position the state as one of Mexico’s foodie destinations to expand tourism to all regions of the state and develop new products. Starting on June 18, the World Day of Sustainable Gastronomy, and promoting under the hashtag #YucatanIsFlavor, the campaign highlights the recipes, ingredients, and gastronomic experiences of the Yucatan.

    “The Year of Yucatecan Gastronomy” places our food as part of the axis of our promotional campaign,” said Michelle Fridman, Minister of Tourism. “The Yucatan’s history goes back to the big bang and forward to the Maya to today. There is no better way to narrate the identity and history of Yucatan than in its flavors and gastronomy.”

    Yucatán gastronomy is culturally rich in traditions that bring together Maya, Spanish, Caribbean, Dutch, and Lebanese influences. It mixes ingredients such as corn, tomato, honey, and beans, with endemic products such as habanero chili, sour orange, and the popular Achiote, used to create a red paste called recado that is used in tamales and over proteins, most popularly wild turkey and pig.

    Some of the more traditional dishes of the state of Yucatan include Sopa de Lima (chicken broth seasoned with local Yucatecan lime), Huevos Motuleños (tortilla with beans and fried eggs), and the Cochinita Pibil (pork marinated in Achiote paste and sour orange juice and cooked in an underground pit). Visitors to the state will find these dishes served at posh haciendas converted into restaurants or hotels, others may take a meal in the home of the living Maya while visiting the southern part of the state and the PUUC route.

    Modern Yucatan offers of one Mexico’s trendiest foodie scenes spanning across its six regions and including rooftop dining in Valladolid, beach clubs in Progreso and Mezcal tastings in the yellow city of Izamal. Its capital, Merida, is home to traditional cantinasmodern restaurants, and mixologists.

    As part of “the Year of Yucatecan Gastronomy” campaign, SEFOTUR will make special alliances. Beginning with commitments the state, to work with the many municipalities to promote their own culinary offerings to state-wide initiatives to fund and promote events such as Restaurant Week, the first-time editions of festivals promoting its honey, tacos and recados. The ministry will also work with local chefs as  “Gastronomic Ambassadors of Yucatan” to further promote the campaign across platforms. International organizations like the UNWTO, the Gastronomic Tourism Laboratory (IICA), and the Aspen Institute will also be tapped to join the initiative.

    “Gastronomic tourism has a very strong element of sustainability, like the actions we have taken efforts in, it is an exertion that seeks to include, diversify, decentralize… that seeks the endemic, the organic, the authentic, being a very noble segment, and in the state of Yucatan, we have a great diversity of ingredients and dishes, we have a gastronomic narrative that few destinations in the world have, from Mayan techniques and ingredients and the different migrations to the footsteps of other cultures in the region”.

    She added that this type of tourism will allow, in the year of economic recovery, to bring benefits to the communities that need it the most, since in these areas is where many of the ingredients and supplies that are consumed in the restaurants are produced.

    The Yucatan is Flavor campaign follows the ministry’s 365 Days of Yucatan campaign which took place between 2021 and 2022 during which time 365 tourism products were promoted to local, national, and international visitors, many developed in an effort to increase tourism.
