This hub is featuring Hi-Chews.

What Are Hi-Chews?

Hi-Chews are a fruit flavored chewy candy sold by Moringa & Company. Each piece of candy contains an outer white coating and a flavored interior with the exception of the flavors of Strawberry Cheesecake, Yogurt, Cotton Candy, and Cola. When you bite into a Hi-Chew, it feels as if you are eating gum that you can swallow.

History of Hi-Chews

Hi-Chews originated when Taichiro Moringa wanted to invent an edible chewing gum. This was due to the Japanese taboo of spitting out your food. In 1931, Chewlets were born! Eventually they were taken off the market and in February of 1986, they were re-released as Hi-Chews.

Hi-Chew Ingredients and Allergen Information

Ingredients
Glucose syrup, sugar, hydrogenated palm kernal oil, gelatin, natural and artificial flavoring, strawberry juice contentrate, DL-Malic acid, citric acid, emulsifiers, sodium nitrate solution, and natural colors.

Allergen Information
As of recently, Hi-Chews have become gluten free. If the best buy date is for 2012 or later, than it is gluten free. Because Hi-Chews have gelatin in them, they are not kosher. They are also not halal or vegetarian.

Hi-Chew Flavors and Packaging

Flavors
Hi-Chews come in many different flavors. You can have access to all of them online or in specialty stores. The flavors released in the United States are strawberry, green apple, mango, melon, grape, peach, and banana.

Packaging
Hi-Chews are either in individually wrapped foil or in wax paper. You can buy them in little packages like Starbursts or they can come individually wrapped in bags (both small and large).

Hi-Chew Fun Facts

According to POPSUGAR, Heidi Klum, John Mayer, and Ryan Gosling love Hi-Chews.

  • Heidi Klum's favorite flavor is strawberry.

  • Ryan Gosling's favorite flavors are green apple and grape.

While the texture of Hi-Chews are completely unique, if you like Hi-Chews, I would suggest also trying Laffy Taffy and Starbursts.

      I left a comment at your new HUB and then see we are already buddies and that was not your first HUB as indicated by one of the comments. Oh well. I decided to come back and look over the candy again. RJ
