2020 WINTER FANCY FOODS COVERAGE IS SPONSORED BY:
BURLINGTON, Vt.— Building on the successful Snack Bites line, Vermont chocolatier Lake Champlain Chocolates (LCC) is introducing two new vegan-friendly Snack Bite flavors, Crunchy Quinoa and Extra-Dark Chocolate and Dark Chocolate and Peanut Butter.
“Snacking as a category continues to outpace Food and Beverage overall growth, with 47% of US consumers eating up to 3 or more snacks per day,” says Allyson Myers, Director of Sales and Marketing at LCC. “These two non-dairy, vegan friendly snack bites will give customers more options for a better-for-you indulgent snack.”
The deep dark 80% chocolate snack bites will appeal to those looking for a higher cocoa content and a reduced sugar chocolate; while nut butters provide products with interesting textures, higher protein, and indulgent flavor profiles. The quinoa offers a pleasing, crunchy texture that keeps you coming back for more.
By using premium clean and simple ingredients, including high quality fair trade and organic certified chocolate, there is no compromise on flavor. “Snacking provides a break in people’s busy days and we want that moment to be worth every minute— satisfying, delicious, and relaxing,” says Myers.
With USDA Organic and Fair Trade Certification, consumers can feel good about their purchase, knowing the ingredients have been responsibly sourced without child labor or slavery and with care and consideration for the earth and its health.
The bags are hole-punched for ease on chip-clips and are designed with bright colors and attention- grabbing imagery of the product. In a convenient, re-sealable bag, they are best suited for merchandizing at point of impulse for grab-n-go sales. The two new Snack Bites join the line with Milk, Dark, Peppermint, and Pumpkin Spice.
LCC will be sampling the Snack Bites in the FCIA Fine Chocolate Pavilion at the Winter Fancy Food Show, Moscone Center, second Floor Special Exhibits area in San Francisco, January 19-21, 2020. Snack Bites have an SRP of $5.99.
