The Hi-Chew Bite-Size Candy Shop launches
Following the tremendous success of the Bite-Size Candy Shop in New York City this past June, Hi-Chew, the immensely fruity, intensely chewy candy, is bringing its one-of-a-kind pop-up experience to three more cities this fall: Dallas, Los Angeles, and Miami.
From experiencing the brand’s fascinating history and colorful packaging to snagging newly released products, exclusive flavours, and brand-new merch, the Bite-Size Candy Shop transports brand fans through a journey of all things Hi-Chew. The Bite-Size Candy Shop weekend tour rollout is as follows:

In Dallas, consumers will be able to explore Galleria Dallas and shop to their heart’s desire while chewing on their favourite candy. As Hi-Chew treks over to the West Coast, The Grove provides a trendy spot with an open-air environment, making it an ideal place to kick-off Halloween weekend festivities. Lastly, Miami’s Wynwood neighborhood provides an artsy atmosphere filled with colorful murals that match HI-CHEW’s fun brand vibe.
With inspiration from the brand’s whimsical and vibrant packaging, the Bite-Size Candy Shop immediately sparks the same joy that consumers get when they take the first bite of their favourite Hi-Chew flavour. Stepping into the space, customers are immersed in a fruit-forward world that evokes a sense of fun and uniqueness. Each location brings a new element that’s specific to the city, combining consumers’ hometown flare with their favourite chewy candy. Consumers will also be transported around the world as they explore the brand’s history and browse the display of global flavours to get inspired for future travels.
The Bite-Size Candy Shop will feature exclusive fan-favourites such as Yogurt Mix, Pineapple, and Lillikoi, as well as classic Hi-Chew candy flavours including Soda Pop Mix, Banana, and Kiwi. What’s more, Morinaga America, Inc., the makers of Hi-Chew will unveil Hi-Soft, a delectable salted caramel chew that is the latest addition to its product lineup. Exclusive branded merchandise will be available for purchase including brand-new hoodie designs, beanies, brightly colored fanny packs, and limited edition stickers in each city. With a candy dispenser on-site, visitors will be able to enjoy samples of the newest Hi-Chew flavours. Additionally, with every purchase of $50 or more, customers will receive a free Hi-Chew tote bag.
“After the success of our Bite-Size Candy Shop in New York City, our brand fans were eager for more, and we’re excited to be able to bring this experience to them in Dallas, Los Angeles, and Miami this fall,” said Teruhiro Kawabe (Terry), chief representative for the USA & President, CEO of Morinaga America, Inc. “As our loyal Chew Crew continues to grow throughout the country, we’re so happy that we can bring the Hi-Chew pop-up to each of these cities.”
The larger-than-life photo booth experience from the New York City pop-up has been reimagined and will be a must-visit experience at each location. Visitors will feel bite-size surrounded by life-size Hi-Chew Bites chewlets as if they jumped right into the bag. The photos will be available digitally to share with friends and on social media.
The Bite-Size Candy Shop is inspired by the brand’s newest launch, Hi-Chew Bites, a convenient way to enjoy your favorite chews on the go with unwrapped chewlets in three of the most popular flavours: Mango, Green Apple, and Strawberry.
