KANSAS CITY — Mashups are popping up in recent product launches.
Alter Eco Foods is introducing Truffle Thins Dark Chocolate Bars made with organic ingredients, including coconut oil, cocoa butter, raw cane sugar and natural flavors. Varieties include Classic Dark, Salted Caramel, Mint Crème and Silk Velvet.
“Love for our dark chocolate bars and truffles grows by the day, so we thought: why not put the two together?” said Mike Forbes, chief executive officer.
Mike’s Hot Honey has collaborated with French mustard maker Maille to introduce Maille Hot Honey Dijon made with Mike’s Hot Honey. The condiment is sweet, spicy, creamy and tangy, according to the companies, and may be used for dipping, as a sandwich topping or in a vinaigrette.
“The Mike’s Hot Honey team has always loved Maille mustard,” said Mike Kurtz, founder of Mike’s Hot Honey. “When I tasted the final product, I was completely blown away by the harmony of the two flavors. We’re excited to have contributed to a new product that combines the best aspects of both Maille’s mustard and our hot honey, and to give foodies and fans a new way to enjoy a little sweet heat on their favorite foods.”
