SEATTLE, April 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- SkinnyDipped, known for insanely delicious, thinly-dipped almonds, peanuts and cashews, is making waves in the candy category with the launch of drool-worthy chocolate bars and peanut butter cups with a fraction of the sugar and no dirty secrets. The brand’s new offerings are more delicious than their full-sugar counterparts but have up to 79% less sugar than leading brands and are made without stevia or sugar alcohols.

Although the pandemic has fueled growth in confections, consumers have continued to be mindful of sugar intake. Data from market research firm Euromonitor reports reduced and no-sugar confections are expected to grow up to 14.6% annually and serve as key category drivers.

SkinnyDipped’s founders - mom/daughter duo Val and Breezy Griffith - saw an opportunity to fill the gap left between chocolate bars and peanut butter cups made with lots of sugar and lower sugar options that rely on sugar substitutes like stevia that can leave an undesirable aftertaste or sugar alcohols that can cause stomach upsets. The brand’s new products deliver an indulgent taste with way less sugar by sweetening with a blend of maple sugar, cane sugar and allulose; allulose is a sugar found in fruits like raisins and figs that tastes like cane sugar but has 90% fewer calories.

“Consumers are looking to reduce sugar but don’t want to sacrifice flavor or enjoyment and are becoming increasingly aware of the impact of sweeteners like stevia and erythritol on taste and gut health,” says SkinnyDipped CEO Breezy Griffith. “Our promise has always been out-of-this-world taste, less sugar, and an ingredient label you can feel great about. Our new cups and bars continue to deliver on this -- they’re mind blowingly good, have only 2-4g of sugar and leave no unpleasantness from stevia, sugar alcohols or artificial sweeteners. They’re game changers.”

Additional information about these mouthwatering new products listed below:

  • Dark Chocolate Almond Sea Salt Bar: This bar is made with a blend of SkinnyDipped’s signature dark chocolate and a pinch of sea salt, taken to the next level with loads of almonds and only 3g of sugar in a 30g serving (60% less than the leading brand).*
  • Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Bar: SkinnyDipped starts with their signature dark chocolate then loads it up with buttery, insanely delicious caramel. This bar is sweet and salty perfection with only 3g of sugar in a 30g serving (79% less than the leading brand).*
  • Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups: SkinnyDipped flips the equation with loads of scrumptious peanut butter - more than other cups - nestled in a thin, dark chocolate shell. These cups are made with simple ingredients and have only 2g of sugar per each 15g cup (75% less than the leading brand).*
  • Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups: These peanut butter cups are made for true peanut butter cup connoisseurs, with the perfect blend of mouthwatering peanut butter (more than other cups) and milk chocolate and only 4g of sugar per 15g cup (64% less than the leading brand).*
