Chuao Chocolatier Showcases Moon Bark at Expo West

SAN DIEGO — Chuao Chocolatier, maker of culinary-driven, Fair Trade Certified chocolate confections is showcasing its latest deliciously irresistible product innovations at Natural Products Expo West booth #N1201, from March 8-10. Crafted for seekers of wild joy, Chuao Chocolatier’s Organic Moon Bark is now available in three wildly mouth-watering flavors, Chia Berry Dreamer, Quinoa Berry Skies and Coconut Almond Radiance.

In line with the brand’s sense of joyous adventure and deliciously engaging chocolate experiences, these new organic treats pair playful superfood inclusions with 72% Fair Trade Certified dark chocolate, offering a better-for-you snack in three out-of-this-world varieties:

  • Chia Berry Dreamer: Play make-believe in the stars and chase the man in the moon with nutrient-rich superfoods – crunchy chia seeds, juicy wild blueberries, roasted pumpkin seeds, and mineral rich pink Himalayan sea salt.
  • Quinoa Berry Skies: Get tipsy on starlight and make eyes at the moon with this dark chocolate joy kissed with earthly delights – crisp puffed quinoa, pink Himalayan sea salt, and sweet and tart golden berries.
  • Coconut Almond Radiance: Rule the night and slow dance in the moonlight with this dark chocolate offering that glows with sweet and savory goodness – toasted coconut, rich dates, and salted caramelized almonds.

“There is just something so mysterious and wonderful about the moon that it was easy, almost obvious for me to draw inspiration from it,” said Chef Michael Antonorsi, Chuao Chocolatier’s Co-Founder and Master Chocolatier. “Without fail I look up at the night sky and am in awe of this nightly visitor that dances among the stars, casting a bright light over the city below, that I just had to craft something to capture this spirit in something so deliciously exciting one would associate it with adventure. In creating Moon Bark, I hope to share a piece of the moon as I know it with all seekers of wild and delicious chocolate joy.”

In addition to Moon Bark, Chuao Chocolatier is also exhibiting three new flavors that are part of the Joy-Filled Caramels product set—Ooh Ahh Almond, Ravishing Rocky Road, and Sweet & Salty—rounding out the collection of rich, fudgy confections perfect for sharing, alongside a sneak peek of the brand’s newest innovation in its signature line of ultra-premium chocolate bars, Sprinkle Dreams. This new bar boasts a mix of crisp waffle cone, rainbow sprinkles and chopped hazelnuts that serve up a double scoop of creamy milk chocolate goodness in every bite.

Chuao Chocolatier’s Moon Bark and the extended line of Joy-Filled Caramels can be found online at, and at the company’s Southern California boutique. Meanwhile Sprinkle Dreams will be available this May for all to enjoy. A curated selection of the brand’s signature line of chocolate bars can also be at major retailers nationwide, including CVS, Target and Whole Foods Market. For more information, please visit
