Alter Eco bars, truffles
Alter Eco Foods, San Francisco, Calif.
Description: Alter Eco is giving chocolate lovers a reason to rejoice with the launch of four new items: Dark Salt & Malt Bar, Dark Salted Almonds Bar, Dark Super Blackout Bar and Dark Mint Truffles.
The new dark chocolate bars boast at least 70 percent cocoa, while the truffles contain 58 percent cocoa. All chocolate varieties are made with single-origin Ecuadorian cacao that’s roasted from the inside out and finished by expert Swiss chocolatiers.
Being USDA organic and certified Fair Trade, Alter Eco’s new dark chocolates stay true to the brand’s steadfast dedication to full-circle sustainability throughout its operations and supply chain. In addition to reforesting the land and ensuring fair farmer compensation, the bars and truffles are wrapped in sustainable packaging.
New flavors include:
• Dark Salt & Malt: This malt-meets-salt bar marries premium Fleur de Sel de Guérande sea salt and deep Ecuadorian chocolate, giving a novel take on a classic malt flavor, all with a crispy, yet smooth, texture.
• Dark Salted Almonds: Made for chocoholics that are nuts for sea salt, this bar boasts roasty-toasty almonds, Ecuadorian chocolate and a sprinkle of Fleur de Sel de Guérande sea salt, all with a hint of Madagascar vanilla beans for a balanced bite.
• Dark Super Blackout: Made with Ecuadorian chocolate and a touch of Madagascar vanilla, the deep, dark intensity of this 90 percent cocoa bar is met with a smooth, creamy texture that appeals to real, fearless chocolate lovers.
• Dark Mint Truffles: An irresistibly cool combination, these truffles are made with Ecuadorian cocoa and a silky-smooth, oh-so-minty center of creamy milk, wholesome coconut oil and a mellowing touch of Madagascar vanilla.
Ingredients (Dark Salt & Malt): Cacao beans, raw cane sugar, cocoa butter, malt crumb (wheat flour, sugar, barley malt flour, whole wheat flour, barley malt, sweet whey powder, salt), sea salt and natural flavor.
