Newman's Own Organics 54% Espresso Dark Chocolate Bar - 2.25 oz.
Inspired by a love of chocolate, Newman's Own searched for a source of organic cocoa beans to make a rich, flavorful chocolate - and they found it! Newman's Own new Signature Series line of Chocolate Bars is formulated with some of the finest Certified Organic chocolate they've ever tasted, made from cocoa beans grown on Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms.
"I can't resist chocolate and we're always looking for the best source of organic cocoa beans," says Nell Newman, co-founder and president of the company. "The chocolate used in these bars is some of the best we've ever come across. Carefully selected organic cocoa beans and other fine ingredients were used to produce a line of chocolate with richer flavors and a creamy, smooth texture. In recognition of this exceptional product, we are paying a premium above and beyond the market price for organic cocoa beans."
Newman's Own chocolate bars will be available in two sizes: 3.25-ounce and 2.25-ounce, in the following flavors:
- Dark Chocolate
- Super Dark Chocolate 70% Cocoa
- Mocha Milk Chocolate
- Milk Chocolate
- Espresso Dark Chocolate
- Orange Dark Chocolate
The USDA Organic Seal assures that at least 95% of the ingredients are organically certified.
The Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal guarantees that the cocoa in our Signature Series was grown on farms that meet comprehensive standards for sustainable farming, protecting soil, waterways and wildlife habitat as well as the rights and welfare of workers, their families and communities.
Q: Is the organic vanilla used in Newman's Own chocolate bars and cups gluten and wheat free?
A: Yes, the grain used in the alcohol base for our vanilla is GE-free Corn grain. It contains no wheat, wheat gluten, barley, spelt oats or rye.
Q: I received chocolate with air holes, why?
A: Because Newman's Own products are organic it lacks all the emulsifiers that make it smooth out like an ordinary non-organic product; therefore when it settles into the mold, it doesn't settle out into all the ridges of that mold with as much evenness as a non organic product. There may be bars with one end slightly thicker than the other because of this settling as well.
