Most Innovative New Product Winner: Dark Chocolate Toasted Coconut barkTHINS® snacking chocolate

Posted on: May 28th, 2014 by Nicole / No Comments

Last week, our barkTHINS® team traveled to Chicago to take part in the annual Sweets and Snacks Expo presented by the National Confectioners Association (NCA). barkTHINS® was one of the 650 confectionery companies who had a booth at the show where we sampled all of our standard 4.7 oz. flavors, and debuted our NEW Dark Chocolate Toasted Coconut flavor, as well as Dark Chocolate Blueberry Quinoa and Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Seed flavors. We were so thrilled when we learned that our NEW flavor won the Most Innovative New Product Award for Gourmet/Premium Snack presented by Phil Lempert; otherwise known as the “SuperMarket Guru.” Our NEW Dark Chocolate Toasted Coconut flavor is a classic combination of two delicious flavors, and it non-GMO Project Verified and Fair Trade Certified! You can get a chance of tasting this award winning flavor now at select Costco clubs, and will launch in our gourmet retailers this fall. See our website for more information.
