Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker Debuts New Flavor

SB3oz72%_RaspAlmNEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE) –– Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker debuted its latest wonderfully complicated flavor combination, 72% Cacao Dark Chocolate with Raspberries & Sea Salted Almonds at the Specialty Food Association’s Summer Fancy Food Show in New York June 28-30. The new bar joins the existing lineup of nine other flavors.

As with all Scharffen Berger chocolate, the new artisanal chocolate bar contains 100 percent cacao from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms. A fruit and nut bar to be enjoyed slowly, Raspberry & Almond combines smooth, mellow dark chocolate with tart red raspberries and the satisfying crunch of lightly salted, chopped almonds.

“At Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker, each of our chocolate bars is designed for chocolate lovers to fully appreciate the flavor and texture of our outstanding chocolate,” said Bernie Banas, Vice President for Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker. “The Raspberry & Almond bar is the first fruit infused bar in our lineup, which adds new depth to the incredible complexities of this fine cacao.”

The new 72% Cacao Dark Chocolate with Raspberries & Sea Salted Almonds will be available as a 3-ounce and 1-ounce bar. In addition, three other wonderfully complicated chocolate bars will join the ranks of the 1-ounce Scharffen Berger chocolate bars, which provide chocolate lovers with the perfect single-serve treat:

  • Scharffen Berger 72% Cacao Dark Chocolate with Sea Salted Pistachios combines the unique nutty taste of roasted, chopped pistachios and the silky smooth intensity of dark chocolate with the subtle tang of sea salt.
  • Scharffen Berger 72% Cacao Milk Chocolate with Toasted Coconut & Macadamia blends the intense notes of caramel and molasses in luscious milk chocolate with toasted coconut and chopped macadamia nuts.
  • Scharffen Berger 41% Cacao Milk Chocolate with Sea Salted Almonds complements the rich, creamy milk chocolate with chopped, roasted almonds and a sprinkling of sea salt.

The new Scharffen Berger Raspberry & Almond 3-ounce chocolate bar will be available beginning late summer 2015 at the suggested retail price of $4.95, and the full line of 1-ounce bars is currently available for the suggested retail price of $2.50.
