Run Gum Expands in Walmart stores with additional products, including an exclusive new flavor

EUGENE, Oregon (August 2020) Run Gum—the Oregon-based energy gum company founded by 2x Olympian Nick Symonds, along with his coach Sam Lapray—this week announced that Walmart will expand its offering of caffeine-infused energy gum nationwide in over 3,500 locations.

Run Gum first launched in Walmart nationwide in November 2020 offering it’s original Mint flavor for purchase by the pack. After exceeding velocity expectations, Walmart chose to expand the assortment of energy gum with the addition of Run Gum’s popular Bubblegum flavor as well as a brand new exclusive flavor inside a five-pack variety box

Walmart buyers expressed interest to Run Gum CEO Nick Symmonds about bringing a new flavor that would be exclusive to Walmart stores. After months of careful development, Symmonds and his team presented the idea for Walmart to carry a five-pack variety box featuring a brand new flavor—Tropical Boost. 

“Working with Walmart has always been one of my biggest achievements as the CEO of Run Gum,” said Symmonds. “I couldn’t be more excited to see more flavors hit the shelves. I always love delivering new products to our amazing customers, and Tropical Boost is one of my favorite flavors yet.” 

Run Gum can be found in the sporting goods section, along with its flagship flavors, Mint and Bubblegum.
