Kopper’s Chocolate Launches Fair Trade Product Line On The Rocks Chocolates

JERSEY CITY, N.J.— Kopper’s Chocolate is set to launch a new chocolate line highlighting their top selling, adult beverage themed cordials at the Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco. An Inspired Indulgence, On the Rocks Chocolate is handcrafted with Fair Trade Certified cocoa and each 64 dark chocolate cordial is crafted after your favorite adult beverage. Filled with a surprising liquid center, each bite will leave you wanting more.

“Kopper’s traditional cordials are truly special, surprising and delicious. They have been a top seller in our collection for decades,” says Deborah Holt, general manager of Kopper’s Chocolate. “Crafting modern flavor offerings and supporting the Fair Trade initiative seemed like a natural innovation for Kopper’s and as a result we created On the Rocks Chocolate.”

On the Rocks Chocolate is available in four tantalizing flavors, packaged in 4 oz. resealable pouches and merchandised in merchandise-ready caddies for quick display. These delicious bites contain no alcohol.

  • Moscow Mule – Dark chocolate cordials boldly rolled with a spicy mix of sugar, ginger and mint and a vodka flavored center.
  • Cold Brew Coffee – Dark chocolate cordials energetically rolled with crushed espresso beans and a cold-brew coffee flavored center.
  • Barrel Aged Bourbon – Dark chocolate cordials decadently dusted with delicious rich cocoa and a barrel-aged bourbon flavored center.
  • Strawberry Margarita – Salted lime infused dark chocolate cordials tantalizingly dusted with smooth strawberry powder and a tequila flavored center

“We are extremely excited about this creation. Crafting innovative and great tasting hand-crafted chocolates is in our DNA,” exclaims David Braverman, head of Kopper’s operations and owner at Nuts.com, parent company to Kopper’s Chocolate. “They are a great anytime personal indulgence or shareable hostess gift. Just be sure to bite responsibly as an inspired indulgence awaits with On The Rocks Chocolate.”

On The Rocks Chocolate is the first Fair Trade Certified product line for Kopper’s Chocolate.

“On The Rocks is the perfect way to kick off our partnership with Fair Trade USA,” says Holt. “Embracing the Fair Trade values honors an 80 year old commitment of craft and sourcing quality ingredients, while empowering our partners every step of the way.”
