MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Pearson’s Candy Company is releasing a new line of healthier chocolate snacks — named after the company’s St. Paul location.
On Tuesday, the candy company announced the first products from its new 7th Street Confections brand: “Dark Chocolate Thins”.
The company says the chocolate line is aimed at addressing consumers’ growing appetite for “better for you” snacks and confections.
The first lineup of flavors include raspberry & quinoa; strawberry; blueberry & almond; and pineapple & toasted coconut. The snacks contain 54 percent cacao with fruits, nuts and grains “to provide a unique flavor punch with a crunchy mouthfeel.”
The chocolate line is available at Cub Foods currently and will be available at grocery, mass, specialty retail and convenience stores at a suggested retail price of $4.49 for a 4.7 ounce standup reclose-able bag.
Pearson’s is located at 2140 7th Street West in St. Paul and is one of the founding partners with WCCO’s Pulling Together event.
