As demand continues to build for whole-ingredient premium chocolate, jcoco (pronounced “jay – cocoa”) is widening its distribution into the Rocky Mountain region. With inspired flavor infusions and perfectly-portioned sizing, jcoco is a new, award-winning line of premium chocolate from Seattle Chocolate Company. The line, which includes an array of seven milk, white and dark chocolate bars, can now be found in Whole Foods Markets throughout Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Kansas.
“The entire jcoco line has been a huge win for retailers nationwide, and we’re very excited to be expanding our reach in the Rocky Mountain region with Whole Foods,” says Lisa Blizzard, the director of sales for Seattle Chocolate Company. “The lush, vibrant packaging pops on shelf, and the fresh, approachable flavor infusions are bringing customers back into stores for repeat purchase.”
jcoco draws inspiration from across the globe to create a fresh, contemporary style and taste experience, company officials say. Using carefully sourced ingredients—such as organic California Mission figs, and healthful ingredients like quinoa and goji berries—jcoco bars are 100% natural, non GMO and kosher certified. The line is curated with meticulous attention to every detail—from the vibrant shades and velvety texture of the packaging to the globally sourced inclusions in each bar—jcoco is designed to engage a woman’s senses, from first sight to last bite.
jcoco chocolate bars are available in seven varieties: agave quinoa sesame, edamame sea salt, cayenne veracruz orange, noble dark with nibs, black fig pistachio, vanuatu coconut pecan and jingle berry, which is all new for the 2013 holiday season. Inspired by seasonal pine boughs and red winter berries, jingle berry is jcoco noble dark chocolate dressed up for the holidays. Gourmet inclusions of toasted pine nuts and slightly tart goji berries, make for a perfectly balanced holiday treat. Available only through December 2013, jingle berry bars are elegantly wrapped in festive black and white winter imagery and packaged in a vibrant red box.
jcoco is uniquely packaged to include three individually-wrapped 1-ounce bars. Thin and elegant, these perfectly portioned servings offer a satisfying indulgence or a sweet opportunity to share with friends. Each bar has an MSRP of $7.95.
Additionally, every jcoco purchase helps deliver a fresh, healthy serving of food to someone in need. The jcoco line has already provided more than 77,000 servings of food in neighborhoods coast-to-coast. With established partnership with establishments such as Northwest Harvest in Seattle, Food Bank for New York City, San Francisco Food Bank and Marin Food Bank in California, jcoco is continually looking to expand its network of community giving partners, with the goal to establish partnerships wherever jcoco products are sold.
