Gelato Canna Co. (Gelato), a California-based cannabis brand, just launched a hard candy edible confection infused with 10mg THC: Sugar Drops. These edibles will be available at participating California cannabis retailers, the company states.
Each bag of Sugar Drops contains 10 units and are available in the following flavors:
- Blue Mango
- Blueberry Cobbler
- Dragon Fruit
- Fruity Cereal
- Island Punch
- Orange Cream
- Peach Freeze
- Watermelon Punch
Gelato’s edibles line also boasts infused chocolate bars, gummies and Last Bite, which are mini chocolate filled sugar cones that launched earlier this year. Sugar Drops was created with the intention of rounding out the company’s current scrumptious edible offerings, according to the company.
“We established ourselves with the chocolate bars and gummies,” said Gelato CEO and co-founder George Sadler in a news release. “But now we want to do things that haven’t been done before. We started with Last Bite and now we’re moving into hard candy with Sugar Drops. It’s another elevated take on classic candy we are confident our customers will love.”
Strong Growth Predicted in Edibles Market
According to ReportLinker.com, the edibles market is expected to grow from $9.6B to $20.6B by 2028, a 16.3% growth during the 5 year period. Gelato states that it is betting on this growth forecast as it continues to expand its edible division into the new year. Sadler and his team have made a new meaning of “sweet success.”
“I’m always looking ahead,” said Sadler in the release. “Whatever direction we decide to move in as a company, it’s always about doing what’s best for Gelato in terms of growth and customer satisfaction and I know our customers will be more than satisfied with our newest edible.”
One bag of Sugar Drops retails between $10-$12.
