LOS ANGELES — A dairy-free chocolate brand is debuting stateside, following two years of research and development and an earlier launch in Israel.
Formulated with cocoa, soy and coconut, 7th Heaven products were designed to deliver the taste, texture and creaminess of milk chocolate. Offerings include caramel and sea salt, peanut butter cream, classic, hazelnut cream, cookies and cream, peanut butter and cornflakes, caramelized coconut, pistachio and halva cream, and hazelnut cream and rice crisps. Married vegan co-founders Daniel Bareket and Elya Adi began creating the recipes a decade ago and introduced the products under the brand name Panda in 2019.
“We are thrilled to bring 7th Heaven chocolate to the United States,” said Malanda Miklic, vice president of sales. “Our goal is to make dairy-free chocolate desirable, irresistible, and approachable, and we can’t wait to hear what people think. We promise, it’s shockingly delicious.”The products are available online at 7thheavenchocolate.com and in local retailers in New York, Los Angeles and Florida, with plans to expand across the United States.
