March, 18/Glendale, Calif. -- The third week of March is American Chocolate Week, and to celebrate the sweetest week of the year, Skinny Cow Candy is introducing new Skinny Cow Divine Filled Chocolates.
Divine Filled Chocolates are milk chocolate pieces with creamy centers of either rich caramel or smooth peanut butter cream. Each single-serve package contains not one, but three pieces of Divine Filled Chocolates for only 130 calories.
"Skinny Cow Candy has enjoyed great success serving up delicious treats, in satisfying portions, for very skinny calories," said Tricia Bowles, Skinny Cow Candy spokesperson. "On the heels of the overwhelmingly positive response to the launches of Skinny CowCandy Dreamy Clusters and Heavenly Crisps in 2011, we wanted to continue to offer chocolate lovers even more delectable varieties, so we created new Skinny CowDivine Filled Chocolates!"
American Chocolate Week began about 25 years ago with the support of the Members of Congress to celebrate America's favorite sweet treat.
Launching April 3, consumers can virtually send Skinny CowDivine Filled Chocolate straight to their front doors. By connecting their Facebook accounts and answering a few questions, consumers can create a short, personalized video using Google Maps technology that captures the entire "Divine Drop" journey -- starting on an airplane and ending up on their own front lawn. While an actual sample will not be dropped from the sky, consumers can download a $1.50 coupon for the new product at the end of the video journey.
Skinny Cow Candy Divine Filled Chocolates will be sold in single-serve pouches with three pieces inside for a suggested retail price of $0.99, and in take-home 6oz., boxes that include six single serve pouches for a suggested retail price of $4.29.
