Anaheim, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) March 11, 2011
Honest Tea®, the nation's top-selling organic bottled tea company, is launching Honest CocoaNova, a line of low-calorie brewed cocoa beverages this weekend at the Natural Products Expo West trade show at the Anaheim Convention Center.
Honest CocoaNova is a brewed cacao infusion that contains antioxidants and theobromine naturally found in dark chocolate. Made with USDA Certified Organic and Fair Trade Certified™ cacao beans, the main ingredient in chocolate, Honest CocoaNova provides a light, satisfying taste for a guilt-free treat with only 50 calories in a 10 fl. oz. bottle. Honest CocoaNova contains approximately 50mg of theobromine per bottle.
The Fair Trade, organic cacao beans are roasted and ground into a natural cocoa powder, which is then brewed through a patent-pending process to create Honest CocoaNova.
“Everyone has tasted cocoa, but Honest CocoaNova is cocoa as you’ve never known it. It has a rich, satisfying flavor with only 50 calories per bottle,” said Seth Goldman, President and TeaEO of Honest Tea. “We’ve been working on this concept since 2006 and can’t wait to see how consumers respond.”
Honest CocoaNova is available in three varieties, Mint Cacao, Mocha Cacao and Cherry Cacao at a suggested retail price of $1.99 at select natural foods stores beginning in April 2011. The drink has 13 grams of sugar and 50 calories per 10 fl. oz. serving.
Honest CocoaNova labels display the CocoaSource™ mark developed and licensed by Apure Foods. CocoaSource™ denotes the antioxidant power naturally found in cocoa.
