Venice, FL (PRWEB) February 11, 2014
On February 7th, Omega3 Innovations released its first limited edition version of the chocolate-covered Omega Heaven™ cookie, specifically made for Valentine’s Day.
Combining cherries and dark chocolate chips with the award-winning cookie recipe, the Venice-based biotech company hopes to provide consumers with a flavorful twist on a signature product.
The chocolate-cherry Omega Heaven will be the company’s third limited edition product in a five month span. It follows in the footsteps of the Apple Cinnamon Raisin Omega Cookie and Mint Omega Passion frozen chocolate truffle.
"Our limited edition Apple Cinnamon Raisin cookie was a huge success in the fall," said Carol Urofsky, who runs the Omega3 Innovations bakery. "Our customers respond quite favorably to new flavor combinations. As we introduce more limited edition products, we see people get excited about new ways to take their fiber and fish oil, and that is very satisfying."
Omega3 Innovations’ co-founder, Anne-Marie Chalmers, MD, said the company has made it its mission to present consumers with healthy treats options, which is especially important during the candy-filled Valentine’s Day season.
"Omega Heaven’s non-alkalized dark chocolate coating satisfies people’s sweet tooth; but the cookie also presents consumers with excellent nutrition, like fresh cod liver oil and gluten-free oat fiber," said Chalmers. "Around Valentine’s Day, when you’re encouraged to give your loved ones junk food, it’s good to have an alternative."
In November 2013, the Omega Heaven won the international SupplySide Editor’s Choice Awards for innovation and market significance in the omega-3 category. Each chocolate-covered cookie contains 1000 mg of EPA/DHA from fresh cod liver oil, four grams of soluble oat fiber, and 61 percent non-alkalized dark chocolate.
