Forest Feast launches a new range of Signature Chocolate Nuts

Snacking brand Forest Feast has launched a new Signature Chocolate Nut range, tapping into growth in demand for premium and indulgent snacks.

The new range is handcrafted inhouse, using oven roasted nuts coated in real Belgian chocolate.

“Take-home chocolate is currently growing 15% YoY, with 98% penetration*, and we are seeing between 150-250% growth in our own chocolate ranges,” said Bronagh Clarke, marketing director at Forest Feast. “We wanted to bring something different to the confectionery category for consumers by reconciling the goodness of nuts with the indulgence of Belgian chocolate.

“With more people spending time together at home, the range is well primed to meet demand from the current trend of in-home snacking. Each one has its own unique ingredient twist and they are all oven-roasted with their skin-on to give real depth of flavour.”

Launching with three variants, the range includes:

  • Sea Salted Dark Chocolate Almonds. Oven roasted skin-on almonds, drenched in Belgian dark chocolate, with a sprinkling of salt and dusting of cocoa. A rich, intense sweet-salty experience. (Gluten Free, Vegan)
  • Belgian Milk Chocolate Brazils. Sustainable Amazonian brazil nuts generously drenched in creamy Belgian milk chocolate for a classic, delicious combination. (Gluten Free, Vegetarian)
  • Cookies & Cream Almonds. Oven roasted almonds dunked in delicious Belgian white chocolate & studded with crunchy chocolate cookie crumb. (Vegetarian)
