Chocolate-Covered Fruit Bites

Natierra's Chocolate-Covered Fruit is Freeze-Dried for Easy Snacking

— January 19, 2016 — Lifestyle
Chocolate-covered fruit makes a satisfying snack that balances health and indulgence. Natierra is one company that realized this and began producing bite-sized balls of freeze-dried fruit. As a frozen treat, the organic and Fair Trade snack is able to retain peak freshness and all of its nutritional benefits. In addition to introducing strawberry and banana options, Natierra also introduced a far less common chocolate-covered mango variety.

The chocolate coating on the snack is made from a rich vegan-friendly dark chocolate and free of any savory ingredients that are typically used to give chocolate-covered snacks an additional glossy sheen.

These fruit snacks from Natierra definitely fall under the category of permissible indulgence. These bite-sized chocolate balls also make a great grab-and-go snack for those with a sweet tooth.
Trend Themes
1. Chocolate-covered Fruit Snacks - Opportunity for innovation in creating unique flavors and varieties of chocolate-covered fruit snacks.
2. Freeze-dried Snacks - Potential for developing freeze-dried snacks in different flavors and packaging options for convenient and healthy snacking.
3. Vegan-friendly Chocolate - A growing demand for vegan-friendly chocolate products opens up opportunities for developing plant-based chocolate snacks.
Industry Implications
1. Snack Food Industry - The snack food industry can benefit from incorporating chocolate-covered fruit snacks as a new and indulgent option for consumers.
2. Health Food Industry - Opportunity for health food companies to expand their product offerings by including freeze-dried snacks that combine health benefits with indulgence.
3. Chocolate Industry - Potential for the chocolate industry to tap into the vegan market by creating more vegan-friendly chocolate products like the organic and dark chocolate used in Natierra's snacks.
