SAN LEANDRO, CALIF. – The Ghirardelli Chocolate Company, a leading manufacturer of premium chocolate products since 1852, announces the addition of two new baking chips: 72% Cacao Dark Chocolate Chips and 100% Cacao Unsweetened Chocolate Chips. Featuring sustainably sourced, top-quality cacao beans, the new baking chip products offer high cacao and a no sugar added alternative to Ghirardelli’s extensive baking portfolio.
Joining the lineup of semi-sweet, bittersweet, and milk chocolate chips, bakers now have a greater range of choices when it comes to the sweetness of chocolate chips with Ghirardelli’s new high cacao products. Consumers can enjoy premium chocolate while reducing or adjusting the overall sugar in any recipe to control their desired sweetness. Simply add one of the new high cacao chips to elevate any recipe:
- The 72% Cacao Dark Chocolate Chips are made with high quality cocoa beans, real vanilla and fifty percent less sugar than Ghirardelli’s popular Semi-Sweet baking chips.
- With no sugar added, the 100% Cacao Unsweetened Chocolate Chips are a true blank canvas for a baking creation.
“We created these new baking chips to give our customers more options to choose from in the baking aisle” said Megan Wright, Senior Brand Manager at Ghirardelli. “We use only the best ingredients, so now, baking enthusiasts can turn to Ghirardelli to control the level and type of sweetener used in their delicious recipes and make their treats a Bite Better.”
