2020 READERS' CHOICE NEW PRODUCTS OF THE YEAR AWARDS

CANDY

Customers across the country enjoyed the recently debuted candy SOUR PATCH KIDS
Heads, from Mondelēz International, Inc., which won the Candy category.
"The Mondelēz Vending Team are very pleased to see SOUR PATCH KIDS
Heads win the Candy 2020 Readers' Choice Award," said McAlpine. "The SOUR
PATCH Marketing Group are always developing exciting new variations of this
top-selling candy. SOUR PATCH KIDS Heads offers a new take on the classic
candy, keeping spirals in vending machines and slots in micro markets fresh and
appealing to the customer."
This innovative product allows customers three new ways to enjoy the "sour, then
sweet" gummy candy. Each piece can be bitten in half to savor the individual flavors,
eaten as an entire piece for a new fun-filled combination or paired with SWEDISH FISH Tails
for the ultimate candy duo. SOUR PATCH KIDS Heads are available in a 5-ounce bag.

FOOD

Launched in April 2019, Jimmy Dean® Frittata Sandwiches from Tyson Foodservice
offer a delicious, "better-for-you" option operators can incorporate into their vending and micro market offerings.
	 Each Jimmy Dean® Frittata Sandwich has only 7 to 14 grams of carbs and is a
great source of protein that will help power health-conscious consumers all day
long. Flavors include Jimmy Dean® Florentine Frittata with Turkey Sausage and
Cheese; Jimmy Dean® Florentine Frittata with Chicken and Cheese; and Jimmy
Dean® Farmer Frittata with Sausage and Cheese.
"Tyson Foodservice has an unwavering commitment to delivering innovative, trenddriven products to operators," said Bethany Runyan-Meadows, senior manager, channel & customer
development for Tyson Foodservice. "As all-day breakfast continues to be a hot trend among consumers, Jimmy Dean® Frittata Sandwiches help meet the ever-growing demand for 'better-for-you'
breakfast options that can be consumed at any time of day. We are honored to receive recognition
from voters within the vending and micro market industry for this exciting award."

TECHNOLOGY

Gimme VMS placed first in the Technology category this year. Launched in August
2019, Gimme VMS manages operations for micro markets, vending and office coffee
service, bringing unprecedented efficiency as a mobile-first application for iOS
devices. VMS data is synchronized between online devices in real time. The technology supports multiple warehouses and ensures stable operation when offline.
As another important feature, multi-variable reporting allows for fast and
easy report generation. Gimme VMS can replace operators' former VMS in stages
or all at once, with integrations to cashless, coin counters, LightSpeed Automation
and 365 Retail Markets. This translates into optimized merchandising, increased route
and warehouse efficiency, and complete inventory control from warehouse to points of sale
from day one.
"Our industry is interested and ready for innovation. Gimme VMS is built on a brand-new technical
foundation and is the only platform for AI [artificial intelligence]," Cory Hewett, CEO and co-founder of
Gimme, said. "To put it in perspective, 75% of our core technology didn't even exist in the public domain
24 months ago. We are proud of this product and excited to see it positively impact this market."
