Nonni’s other new seasonal flavor also features chocolate: Milk Chocolate Hazelnut. This biscotti is packed with hazelnuts, dipped in milk chocolate and drizzled with more chocolate.
Hain Celestial’s Greek Gods brand is charging into the chocolate category by launching three new flavors of Greek-style yogurt, all made with a chocolate base: Chocolate Mocha, Chocolate Strawberry and Chocolate Cherry.
