How a Michelin-Starred Chef Creates a New Take on Candy

Chef Paul Shoemaker has been cooking in Michelin Star kitchens for over 20 years. He has trained in prestigious kitchens such as French Laundry, Providence, and Alain Ducasse, before earning his own Michelin Star at Bastide. So what does one do after they've joined the ranks of the best in the world? You decide you want to create something new and innovative - candy that goes above and beyond.

Before he became a world-renowned chef, Paul was just another kid who loved to indulge in candy. Using this nostalgia and his own health goals, Chef Paul was inspired to delve into the world of food science and healthy eating, innovating products that would change our perception of confections.

Thinking about what a new age of candy should bring, he's formulated Oomph! Sweets to hit all the marks you look for in a delicious sweet treat. Flavor, texture, and quality ingredients were top priorities, but equally important was to boost each candy with functional ingredients such as lion's mane mushroom, apple cider vinegar, and acerola. The result is a line of delicious candies that are not only tasty, but also good for you. You don't have to feel guilty about indulging in Oomph!'s confections; instead, enjoy them with the knowledge that they're giving you a boost of goodness such as antioxidants and anti-inflammatories!

His passion for food science is evident when you see the way he's brought all the ingredients to life in Oomph! Sweets. “A good flavor happens when you have all these different elements working together so that each one brings its own character but none overpowering each other."

If you’re looking for a low-sugar candy that will satisfy any sweet tooth, look no further. Oomph! is proud to offer our customers a variety of products and flavors that are vegan, gluten-free, all-natural, and just overall, better for you.
