At the Winter Fancy Food Show, Numi Organic Tea introduced low-sugar Drinking Chocolate that will help to satisfy the demand for functional wellness products. The paleo-friendly, gluten-free line of Drinking Chocolates are made with a blend of pure, organic cacao and organic cocoa butter in varieties like Kick of Mocha, Touch of Chili, Dash of Salt and Shroom Power. Cacao is the star of these formulas, as it is a superfood that is packed with more antioxidants than blueberries.
Cocoa and drinking chocolate is becoming increasingly popular in the United States and Numi CEO Ahmed Rahim reasons that "people are also looking for a delicious, decadent treat that doesn’t compromise their health and instead might actually enhance it."
