Satisfying your confectionary cravings has never been more guilt-free than with RED CHOCOLATE, formulated by European Master Chocolatiers, which has up to 50 percent fewer calories and 30 to 40 percent less fat than regular chocolate brands. RED is made with the highest standards: using natural sweeteners from plants, and carefully selected cocoa from the Ivory Coast of Africa, whose farmers select, roast, and grind the cocoa beans to perfection. Customers may choose from full 3.5 ounce bars, grab-n-go, or pralines to satiate their sweet tooth, complete with enticing flavors such as classic dark, orange & almond, or infused with a smooth nut filling.
