OMG! Canada's Confectionary Duo Strikes a Sweet Deal with Arlene Dickinson

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
