Snacking brand Forest Feast has announced its Dark Chocolate Dipped Fruit range is launching into Waitrose supermarkets in the UK at an RRP of £3.50.
The Irish brand says the range, which includes 60% Cocoa Dark Chocolate Sour Cherries, 60% Cocoa Dark Chocolate Mango and 60% Cocoa Dark Chocolate Mountain Figs, taps into consumer demand for more mindful options in confectionery that still give a taste of indulgence - perfect for sharing or as a treat on nights in.
The range is 100% vegan and gluten-Free, using ‘real chunks of sustainably sourced fruit’. The products are handcrafted and packaged in Ireland using ‘only the finest quality ingredients’, offering a trade-up option.
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.
“The trajectory of healthier snacking options has been on the rise for a while, which has seen huge innovation in the category.”
