SAN LEANDRO, CLAIF. — The Ghirardelli Chocolate Co. is expanding its baking portfolio with two new high cacao baking chips made with sustainably sourced cacao beans: 72% Cacao Dark Chocolate Chips and 100% Cacao Unsweetened Chocolate Chips.

The 72% Cacao Dark Chocolate Chips are made with cocoa beans, vanilla and 50% less sugar than Ghirardelli's semi-sweet baking chips, according to the company. The 100% Cacao Unsweetened Chocolate Chips contain no added sugar.

“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.”

Ghirardelli's new high cacao chips are available nationwide for a suggested retail price of $5.99 per 10-oz bag.
