FENTON, Mich — Gerrit J. Verburg Co. has unveiled its MiniMini Chicles Gum, available in two flavors: Fruit-Flavored and Sugar-Free Peppermint.

“MiniMini Chicles Gum evokes childhood nostalgia for so many of us,” the company said. “No matter your age, it’s fun to rip open the pouch and pour the mini chicles into your mouth. Every mini piece of the crunchy chewing gum is bursting with mega flavor.”

The MiniMini Chicles Fruit Flavor offers orange, pink, yellow and green gum and comes in a 0.79-ounce pouch. The Sugar-Free Peppermint flavor comes in a 0.58-ounce pouch. Both flavors are gluten- and GMO-free. Each pack has a suggested retail price of $1 and ships in 12 (20-count) displays per case.

Based in Fenton, Mich., Gerrit J. Verburg imports and markets confectionery brands, including several European products, many of which are GMO-free and gluten-free. Founded in 1979 by a Dutch immigrant by the same name, the company offers brands such as Beemans chewing gum, Gerrit’s Bakery Stroopwafels and Pink Cadillacs gummies.
