Following the launch of TABASCO Spicy Dark Chocolate at the start of 2012, official UK distributors Empire Foodbrokers has announced its decision to extend the range by introducing TABASCO Spicy Dark Chocolate Wedges into mainstream grocery channels.
Empire Foodbrokers will launch TABASCO Spicy Dark Chocolate Wedges to key buyers at this year’s Speciality & Fine Food Fair (2-4 September 2012).
Encased in a red box, the eight wedges of dark chocolate (53 percent minimum cocoa solids) are infused with TABASCO spice and contain 30 calories each.
With a RSP of £3.49, TABASCO Spicy Dark Chocolate Wedges are designed to provide consumers with an alternative to mainstream chocolate.
Chandresh Patel, Managing Director at Empire Foodbrokers Ltd, said:
“We are delighted to be extending our range of TABASCO chocolate, following successful sales of the brand in 2012.
“With the well documented growth in consumer appetite for US food products, we hope the launch will excite both the UK market and buyers alike.”
Empire Foodbrokers currently supplies TABASCO Spicy Dark Chocolate to Selfridges, House of Fraser, Harvey Nichols and Fenwicks, with an RSP of £3.99 per unit.
TABASCO Spicy Dark Chocolate Wedges will be launched at Speciality & Fine Food Fair 2012 (stand 610), with an RSP of £3.49 per unit.
