British plant-based producer Nush Foods is introducing a range of nut milk chocolate pots, marking its entry into the dessert category.
Initially available in a chocolate orange flavour, the new almond milk Choc Pots are said to be rich in protein and are fortified with live vegan cultures.
Containing fewer than 200 calories per pot, the new offering is sweetened with apple and made with orange oil and Belgian cocoa powder.
With an RRP of £3.00 per two-pack, the pots are free from dairy, lactose, gluten, soya, preservatives, additives and refined sugar.
Nush has also announced that it has secured a deal to supply 244 Waitrose stores with the chive cheese alternative that it launched last year.
“Innovating and launching into new categories, as well as making our products accessible to as many consumers as possible through increased distribution, is central to Nush’s growth plans,” said Bethany Eaton, co-founder of Nush.
“Our Choc Pots are the first nut milk dessert pot in the UK and fill a gap in the market for delicious, protein-rich plant-based desserts.
“Like our Ch*ese, they are made with our almond m*lk, which contains 30% pure almonds, and is made by our team in our factory in Erith.”
