Chocolate Bytes: Vosges' Wild Ophelia Bars

According to Vosges Haut-Chocolat founder Katrina Markoff is launching a lower-priced chocolate brand for the mass market.  

Wild Ophelia Bars come in a variety of 'American' flavors including Smokehouse BBQ Potato Chip, Peanut Butter Banana, Mount Sequoia Granola, Beef Jerky and Southern Hibiscus Peach.

Suggested retail price is $3.99, half the price of Vosges bars, which sell for $7.50 in Vosges boutiques and $8 at Whole Foods.

Products are available at Whole Foods and Cost Plus,  with other stores to follow. According to the company, Markoff developed the Wild Ophelia brand to offer all natural chocolate and artisan ingredients to a broader audience.

The official launch is slated for the Sweets & Snacks Expo May 8.

I haven't tasted these yet, but will keep you posted when I do.

I have not seen those flavors yet but I am in love with the bacon and chocolate bar.

Oh, I am a Vosges chocolate junkie, so I'm used to the premium stuff. It will be interesting to see if this new line has the quality of her originals.

Some wild flavours there! The nearest equivalent available here in the UK are probably those made by Zotter (makers of the Bacon Bits bar).
