Ferrero North America (part of Ferrero Group) has revealed the company’s first sugar candy, Tic Tac Chewy, at the 2024 Sweets & Snacks Expo in Indianapolis. The introduction of Tic Tac Chewy is Ferrero’s first innovation exclusive to the U.S. market, underscoring the company’s commitment to sustained growth in the market.  

“We’re thrilled for candy fans to experience how fun and unique Tic Tac Chewy is," says Dan Cutchin, vice president of marketing at Ferrero USA. “It starts with a crunchy exterior and transforms with a chewy inside, bursting with intense fruit flavor."

Tic Tac is currently the #1 mint in both sales and household penetration with nearly 15 million consumers, and the introduction of Tic Tac Chewy marks the brand’s and Ferrero’s first entrance into the sugar candy category. Chewy will be available in five flavors—Cherry, Apple, Orange, Lemon, and Grape—in both Fruity and Sour varieties. Tic Tac Chewy will be available this September at Walmart, Amazon, and Kroger and will expand to more retailers early 2025.

"Ferrero has supercharged investment in our North American presence in recent years, with expanded manufacturing and R&D capabilities, additional world-class talent, and more and more product innovation," says Jim Klein, chief customer officer, Ferrero USA. “With innovations like Tic Tac Chewy, we are well positioned to continue driving growth in the category and delivering value for our retail partners."
