Hakuna Banana Launches Novelty Bars, Expands Distribution

LOS ANGELES— Hakuna Banana, the leading non-dairy nice cream brand, has announced the launch of their new novelty bars. The 120 calorie bars come in packs of four bars and are available in three flavors: chocolate, “banilla” and strawberry. Only 120 calories a bar, the dessert makes maintaining a healthy lifestyle simple by meeting a number of wellness considerations, including being plant-based, non-GMO, no refined sugars or sugar alcohols, paleo-friendly and naturally sweetened with whole fruit.

Made from a combination of bananas, dates and coconut milk, the product is then dipped in real chocolate, to offer a decadent and portable twist to Hakuna Banana’s fan favorite flavors. The product will be available in Whole Foods and Sprouts locations across the southern pacific region of the United States, including California, Hawaii, Arizona, Utah and Nevada.

“As consumers continue to prioritize wellness, it’s important that we offer options that not-only help meet dietary goals but taste delicious,” said Hannah Hong, co-founder, Hakuna Banana. “By creating a product that actually seems like an indulgence, we enable our customers to accomplish a healthy lifestyle without having to give up arguably the most important meal of the day.”

In addition to the novelty bars, Hakuna Banana is rolling out a new and improved chocolate offering. The new product will be available for retail in April and is packed with even more chocolate and chocolate chips that are imported from Belgium.
