your childhood candy - but better

Founder Ashley Paterson is a self-professed candy fanatic – but as a new mom and long-time plant-based enthusiast, she’s also always on the search for better-for-you variations. She founded Healthy Hippo out of her passion, committing to making low sugar but still delicious candies that bring back all the best memories from your childhood candy indulgences. That’s how we got here! Three years of intensive R&D later, Healthy Hippo launched with 3 products in both cute and nostalgic shapes for your enjoyment.


We add our monk fruit juice concentrate to all-natural ingredients, all while balancing our fibre levels to keep the Healthy Hippo experience positive all the way through.

Adults should have about 25-38 grams of fibre per day, with most only consuming 10-15g. Kids should have even less - usually around 15-25g, depending on their age. (CDC) Each serving size of Healthy Hippo carefully stays under those limits, so you can indulge without worry.

healthy hippo is non-GMO, fully vegan, with nothing artificial in its formulation!

That means no sugar alcohols, preservatives, added sugars, artificial colours or flavourings – any of that. (If traditional candy usually gives you a tummy ache, it’s typically because of all that stuff – not biased here, but if you have that problem, you should definitely give us a try instead.) For our allergic friends (that’s half of our staff), we’re also free of all common allergens, like milk, eggs, tree nuts, peanuts and wheat.
