OMG's will satisfy sweet tooths nationwide
TORONTO, Feb. 9, 2012 /CNW/ - Canada's famous confectionary
entrepreneurs are back! Last night Chris Emery and Larry Finnson
partnered with marketing maven Arlene Dickinson to launch their latest
premium candy - OMG's.
From the first bite to the last, the universal reaction to the
experience of eating these mouth-watering morsels is "Oh my god," or
"Oh my goodness," hence the name, OMG's.
The ingredients behind the OMG's experience are delicious milk or dark
chocolately graham clusters mixed with diced almonds and crunchy toffee
bits. To make sure every last morsel is of the highest quality, Chris
and Larry actually participate in the making of OMG's at their
headquarters in Winnipeg.
"Larry and I missed working together doing something we love to do,
which is to satisfy candy lovers across Canada, so we decided to do it
all over again," said Chris Emery, co-founder, OMG's Candy. "We're
ready to take everything we learned building Clodhoppers and launch
OMG's." said Larry Finnson, co-founder, OMG's Candy.
Impressed with the entrepreneurs and delighted with the taste of OMG's,
Dickinson was happy to sign a deal with the confectionary duo on CBC's Dragons' Den.
"I'm thrilled to invest in Chris and Larry's outstanding candy-making
business," said Dickinson, CEO of Venture Communications. "I'm a
chocolate fanatic and with their history of success and the taste of
OMG's - it was a no-brainer to say 'I'm in' with these guys."
OMG's will be available nationwide beginning the first week of March at
Shoppers Drug Mart and beginning the first weeks of March at Loblaws,
Zehrs and Atlantic Superstore. For more information, visit www.omgs.ca.
