Five Star Bar Line Gets Almond Variety


The Almond Five Star Bar joins the Five Star range from Lake Champlain Chocolates.

The 1.85-ounce bars feature smooth almond butter, roasted almonds and crunchy organic quinoa surrounded by dark chocolate. Organic and Fair Trade Certified, other bars in the line are caramel, peanut, hazelnut, fruit & nut, granola and chocolate caramel.

“While indulgence is still a huge driver for chocolate purchasers, consumers are looking for better-for-you options,” says Allyson Myers, director of sales and marketing for Lake Champlain. “Using plant-based inclusions like almonds and quinoa appeals to consumers’ desire for indulgence paired with healthier ingredients With a total of 16 almonds (7 grams of protein) packed into this chunky bar, it delivers on flavor, protein, a salty-sweet crunch, and rich texture to satiate the most discerning sweet tooth.”

The bars have a SRP of $4.39 and ship in 16-ct self-merchandising cases.
