Kestrel Foods-owned snack brand, Forest Feast, has announced the launch of its new range of Vegan 60% Cocoa Dark Chocolate Dipped Fruit.
Featuring three varieties, the new line is gluten free and made with real chunks of ‘sustainably sourced’ fruit.
The new 60% Cocoa Dark Chocolate Sour Cherries variant features ‘super-sour’ cherry pieces smothered in dark Belgian chocolate to create a sweet and sour contrast.
Forest Feast’s 60% Cocoa Dark Chocolate Mango combines sweet and juicy dried mango strips with 60% cocoa Belgian dark chocolate.
Meanwhile, the 60% Cocoa Dark Chocolate Mountain Figs offering features sun-dried figs covered in dark Belgian chocolate.
Bronagh Clarke, marketing director at Forest Feast, said: “We have seen chocolate-dipped fruit gain huge traction in the US, and so it’s only a matter of time before it lands here in the UK in a big way – home-made options are already popping up all over Instagram and Pinterest.”
Clarke continued: “We’re really excited to see this range land in stores. As the only 100% vegan and gluten-free option out there in dipped chocolate fruit, we’re going to really deliver for shoppers and hopefully in turn grow the category too.”
With an RRP of £3.50, the new products are available from Waitrose.
Last year, Forest Feast introduced a new chocolate-coated nuts range, as it aimed to tap into the growing market for premium and indulgent snacks.
