Spangler Candy Company was featured in an insert of USA Today on Celiac Awareness. The publication hit newsstands on December 2, 2011 in New York, Boston, Seattle, San Francisco, and Denver. Additional distributions of the insert have been arranged to appear at a variety of events and distribution outlets including; the Celiac Disease Foundation (CDF) Website and the Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG) Website, CDF Annual Conference & Food Faire and in the CDF New Member Packets, as well as on 1in133.org (a site that is the main forum for the current debate about FDA labeling of "gluten-free" products).
Through the USA Today and online/social media outlets, such as Facebook and Twitter, over 1.5 million readers will be reached.
One in 133 Americans has celiac disease, a widely recognized autoimmune disorder that damages the intestines and can also destroy your metabolism, neurological, muscular-skeletal and cardiovascular system. Also growing, is the number of Americans with gluten sensitivity at approximately 15 million. The two conditions mimic each other, however, gluten sensitivity does not cause the same amount of intestinal damage as celiac disease. Both disorders are results of the toxic protein found in wheat, barley and rye called gluten.
Readers can find the featured Spangler products, Dum Dums, Saf-T-Pops and Traditional Candy Canes on page three of the insert. Visit www.spanglercandy.com for more information on our gluten-free products and also order online. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
