San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 29, 2008
The San Francisco Chocolate Factory (http://www.sfchocolate.com) announced its newest product, Booklover's Chocolate, with its unique leather-bound book-in-a case packaging and available in milk and dark and dark espresso chocolate varieties.
"Many of us at the San Francisco Chocolate Factory are avid readers and we see Book Lover's Chocolate as a terrifically relevant product. Authors have written tomes about chocolate. Charles Dickens, probably the most famous writer in the world said: 'The only thing better than a friend is a friend with chocolate,'" said Mike Litton, founder and CEO of the company.
"With so many book stores and cafes in the US, which are favorite places for book lovers to gather, readers will have Book Lover's Chocolate to enjoy while reading and discussing their favorite books and authors," Litton continued.
Chocolate has also emerged recently as having many health benefits, according to various studies. Dark chocolate lowers blood pressure, wrote Dirk Taubert, MD, PhD and his colleagues at the University of Cologne, Germany. Their report appeared in an issue of The Journal of the American Medical Association.
"Surprising new research finds chocolate contains superb health-promoting chemicals similar to those in red wine, tea, fruits and vegetables," writes Jean Carper in her Eat Smart column at USA Today.
"Chocolate is rich in cell-protecting antioxidants," she writes. The antioxidants in chocolate help block chemical changes in bad LDL cholesterol that lead to clogged arteries, she added.
The San Francisco Chocolate Factory was created in 1999 to provide chocolate lovers with gourmet-quality, superbly packaged chocolates at non-gourmet prices.
"Since we debuted in 1991, we've become a favorite with San Francisco local sand visitors as well," Litton said.
But the business is expanding beyond the Bay Area in California to other parts of the US and the world, including Canada and Europe.
The factory uses only the finest quality cocoa beans, gathered and imported from three different continents. Only the best beans are selected for consistently superior flavor.
"Our chocolate has a smooth silken texture that melts on the tongue and creates a rich, buttery feel in the mouth," said Litton.
The Book Lover's Chocolate suggested retail price is $5.99 for a 3.5 oz box.
