INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Endangered Species Chocolate (ESC), the top ranked chocolate manufacturer in the natural category, announced today it is introducing three new indulgent chocolate spreads, including hazelnut spread with cocoa, almond spread with cocoa and a chocolate spread. Fulfilling a need for the Natural consumer, ESC is “spreading” into the market by doing what they do best – chocolate. The natural spreads are Fairtrade International certified, Non-GMO Project Verified, vegan, gluten-free, and support wildlife preservation efforts – differentiating factors among other chocolate spreads. Just one year after the launch of their vegan crème filled chocolate bar series, ESC’s entrance into the fast growing indulgent spread category is yet another example of the company’s mission to be a leader and trend setter in the natural food market.
“This is an extremely exciting time for Endangered Species Chocolate – and for our customers who already know and love our chocolate,” said Kelly Meinken, Director of Marketing for Endangered Species Chocolate. “We believe our spreads will appeal to the natural and specialty consumer – as well as general chocolate lovers. Our new clean chocolate spreads are smooth, flavorful and natural – not to mention decadent and delicious.”
ESC will “spread” some good through the sales of its new product line. The company donates 10 percent of net profits to organizations supporting species preservation and habitat conservation.
“More than ever before, consumers are putting a focus on snacking,” said Whitney Bembenick, Research and Development Manager for Endangered Species Chocolate. “Not only do they want something more than the old stand-by granola bar, these consumers demand a snack made with good, quality ingredients. Our new spreads meet this demand and surpass it by providing an indulgent experience that is convenient and can be used in a multitude of ways.”
The spreads will be available at natural food stores and conventional supermarkets. For more information visit www.chocolatebar.com.
