"Both delicious and colorful, Gimbal's Candies tend to spark incredible creativity around the Holidays," said Karin Vollrath, sales and marketing director for Gimbal's Fine Candies. "After receiving a few photos from fans who used our candies for holiday decorations, we thought a Pinterest contest would be a great way to share those ideas with the world."

Gimbal's Fine Candies is one of the only major confectionary manufacturers in the country free of the eight major food allergens - peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs, wheat, soy, fish, and shellfish. Those specific ingredients are responsible for over 90 percent of all allergic food reactions. These foods are not included in any Gimbal's recipes, and in order to eliminate risk of cross contamination, they are not permitted inside their production and packaging facilities.

The company manufactures seven lines of delicious, allergen-free candy including Gourmet Jelly Beans, Sour Gourmet Jelly Beans, Cherry Lovers®, Honey Lovers®, Sour Lovers®, All Natural Licorice Scotties®, and chewy cinnamon LavaBalls. All candies are certified kosher pareve by the Orthodox Union and are made with pride in the USA.
