SAN FRANCISCO — Alter Eco, a chocolate-centric, sustainability-directed food company that takes healthy indulgence to a whole new level, is entering the snacking category with the launch of Dark Chocolate Coconut Clusters. The new organic and fair trade snacks are available in three unbelievably craveable flavors, including Original, Seeds + Salt and Cherry + Almond Butter. Packing all the benefits of coconut and dark chocolate, with as low as five grams of sugar per serving, Dark Chocolate Coconut Clusters are a guilt-free snack made for conscious eaters who want to satisfy their sweet tooth with clean ingredients.
Packaged in convenient resealable pouches perfect for active outdoor snackers, desk snackers or between-meal snackers, Dark Chocolate Coconut Clusters are a decadent treat that combines salty-sweet ribbons of toasted coconut and Alter Eco’s signature 70 percent Ecuadorian chocolate. Light and crispy coconut flakes from sustainably harvested whole coconuts are sliced and toasted before being drizzled with a layer of melty dark chocolate and sprinkled with hand-harvested French sea salt. The new snacks are also vegan, paleo-friendly and contain premium ingredients ranging from coconut oil to organic dark chocolate.
“Our new Dark Chocolate Coconut Clusters mark an exciting milestone for Alter Eco,” said Edouard Rollet, co-CEO and co-founder at Alter Eco. “Forty-six percent of Americans snack more than three times a day, and that number is expected to surge in the next five years. We saw an opportunity to fill a void in the snack aisle and pave the way for a next-level enlightened indulgence – one that’s filled with sustainable, superior ingredients and mind-blowingly delicious flavor.”
Dark Chocolate Coconut Clusters join Alter Eco’s existing portfolio of decadent dark chocolate bars and truffles, and are USDA Certified Organic, Fair Trade Certified, Carbon Neutral Certified, Non-GMO Project Verified and Certified Gluten-Free. Flavor details include:
- Original (five grams of sugar) – an addicting sweet-and-salty combo sprinkled with the perfect ratio of sea salt and dark chocolate.
- Seeds + Salt (five grams of sugar) – a textured, dark chocolate treat baked with roasty-toasty crisp pumpkin and sunflower seeds.
- Cherry + Almond Butter (six grams of sugar) – tangy-sweet cherries and dollops of creamy almond butter unite with rich dark chocolate.
Alter Eco Dark Chocolate Coconut Clusters are now available online and at select stores, including National Co+op Grocers, Natural Grocers Vitamin Cottage, Hy-Vee and H-E-B stores, with a retail price of $4.79/3.2 ounce pouch. The brand’s existing products are also available at the aforementioned locations nationwide, in addition to other major natural food retailers and grocery stores.
