Toast-Flavored Chocolate Bars

Wild Ophelia Created an Empowering 'Hazelnut Cocoa Toast' Confection

— May 24, 2018 — Lifestyle
Wild Ophelia, which is described as the "spirited younger sister of Vosges Haut-Chocolat," was recently recognized in the 2018 Most Innovative New Product Awards by the National Confectioners Association at the Sweets & Snacks Expo. Vosges Haut-Chocolat named the recipient of a Small Business Innovator Award for its Wild Ophelia Hazelnut Cocoa Toast, an indulgently flavored 41% milk chocolate bar.

Wild Ophelia sets itself apart by spotlighting fair trade, non-GMO chocolate and reinterpreting classic American flavors, such as peanut butter and potato chip. To support the next generation of young Americans, Wild Ophelia puts a portion of its product sales toward the Wild Ophelia Accelerator Fund, which works to inspire, educate and support high school and college girls who dream of pursuing an entrepreneurial endeavor within the world of food.
