SANTA CRUZ, Calif. — GummiShot will be available in more than 4,000 convenience-store locations nationwide after its recent partnership with six distributors—Core-Mark, McLane, Hackney, Vistar, Golden Eagle Distribution and Harbor Wholesale. The first plant-based, caffeine gummy will be available in stores by early spring.

“The energy category was long overdue for an innovative new product that consumers feel good about putting in their bodies,” said Dante Robinson, director of sales at GummiShot. “We now have a better-for-you, plant-based energy option available in a gummy format that tastes better, can be personalized to your energy needs and is more enjoyable across the board. We are thankful to our distribution partners who are early believers in GummiShot and are helping us break into convenience stores across the country. Keep an eye on GummiShot. There's so much more to come.”

The better-for-you brand’s rise in the market comes from its appeal to both gummy and energy drink and shot consumers, says the company.

Each GummiShot pouch contains three gummies with 75 milligrams of caffeine each, totaling 225 milligrams. The gummies are available in three flavors: Elderberry, Valencia Orange and Tropical.

GummiShot is a Santa Cruz, Calif.-based brand that was launched in 2021. Products are currently sold online at the GummiShot website and on
