Buddy Fruits Unveils Jiggle Gel

The 100 Percent Gel Fruit Pouch Is the First of Its Kind on the Market

CORAL GABLES, FL--(Marketwire - Oct 4, 2012) - Buddy Fruits today debuts its revolutionary Jiggle Gel pouch, the first 100 percent fruit gel pouch to hit the market. Unlike traditional gel snacks, Buddy Fruits' Jiggle Gel pouch contains only fruit and nothing else. Forget High fructose corn syrup, fillers, added water and gelatin, Buddy Fruits Jiggle Gel is made with only fruit and fruit pectin. The functional and attractive pouch requires no spoon and ensures lots of fun, allowing consumers to enjoy a timeless snack the Buddy Fruits way -- no mess, no stress!

"We've had this product in the works for quite some time, and decided that the back-to-school season would be ideal for its release," said Fabian Milon, co-founder of Buddy Fruits. "Jiggle Gel is advancing traditional gel products, which typically require a bowl and a spoon, all the while making it fun again. Kids will really enjoy this product as it maintains the exciting, jiggly consistency that is often associated with gel snacks. Parents will love it, because it is 100 percent fruit!"

The addition of the Jiggle Gel pouch to Buddy Fruits' line further demonstrates the company's originality in developing products that are portable, healthy and fun to eat. Available in three flavors -- raspberry, strawberry and orange -- the Jiggle Gel pouch is vegan and contains only 70 calories, and is both gluten and dairy-free. Identical to Buddy Fruits existing products, Jiggle Gel is made with no high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavorings, colors or genetic modifications.

"We are pleased that healthy habits have taken such a high priority worldwide," continued Milon. "Initiatives like 'Let's Move!' spearheaded by Michelle Obama have brought healthy eating back to the forefront, allowing us to become even more creative in our 100 percent fruit offerings. Jiggle Gel is the first product of its kind, and one we are especially proud of."

Buddy Fruits can be found in more than 28,000 retailers across the United States. To see if your favorite retailer carries Jiggle Gel, check our 'Where To Buy' page.
