Alter Eco’s New Raspberry Blackout and Total Blackout

“Our Blackout collection is certainly one of our most beloved, so we are really excited about the addition of these two bars that keep quality and health top of mind,” said Mike Forbes, CEO of Alter Eco. “We know that many are more conscious of what ingredients go into their products, and these bars are a testament to the sustainably-sourced ingredients that we believe should be available to everyone.”

The new bars are crafted with Heirloom Arriba Nacional Cacao from Ecuador and the Dominican Republic. Total Blackout is a keto-friendly option made with 100% cacao and only two ingredients: organic cocoa beans and organic cocoa butter. This bar contains no added sugar and is free from sugar alcohols that can cause digestive distress. Raspberry Blackout contains 85% cacao and only four grams of sugar per serving, providing a richly elevated raspberry flavor that is unique to the Blackout line. Both bars are a premium choice for chocolate lovers looking to indulge without the guilt.

Like all of Alter Eco’s chocolate, these latest creations are crafted with organic, Fair Trade ingredients, including cacao grown with dynamic agroforestry methods – or regenerative, climate-positive farming that integrates diverse crops into monoculture systems in order to improve soil health. As one of the first brands to bring agroforestry-grown chocolate to the U.S., Alter Eco’s bars are truly special as a sustainably-made option that people can feel good about purchasing. Additionally, Alter Eco is committed to providing clean ingredients that extend from the farm to the final product, which means never using GMOs, refined sugars, emulsifiers or preservatives.

Alter Eco’s Total Blackout and Raspberry Blackout bars are also USDA Certified Organic, Fair Trade Certified, Certified Gluten Free, Carbon Neutral Certified and packaged in FSC Certified paper that is responsibly sourced to protect forests.

Alter Eco’s new bars are available now with an SRP of $3.99 per 2.65-oz. (75g) bar. Alter Eco products are available online at www.alterecofoods.com.
