Our Chocolate Has Gone Green

by Josh Early Candies

 
Don't worry, it's not that we've changed the color of our delicious chocolates. But this Sunday, April 22 is Earth Day and in its honor, we wanted to highlight our line of Josh Early Naturals, our product line that features 100% pure organic ingredients.

We started sourcing ingredients for this line back in 2008, and it was the first time in over 70 years that our company sought to develop a new line. Since this was the first time that we were taking this leap since my great grandfather developed our original chocolate coating, we knew it was important that we find just the right blend for our new Naturals line.

As we searched for the perfect ingredients for this line, we knew what we were looking for: milk and dark chocolate that offered a full depth of flavor profiles...yet something that wasn't TOO earthy. Pure, natural ingredients, but still a bold chocolate taste. It took two years and tastings of over 25 different varieties of chocolate before we finally found the perfect organic blend. In 2010 we launched 13 new products across our Naturals line in-store. Just last year, our Naturals line finally made its debut online.

With delicious options like our Natural Nonpareils, Fruit and Nut Bark, Dark Raisin Bark, and Roasted Almonds and Cashews, there is something for everyone. This Earth Day, bring along Josh Early Naturals to your local community cleanup, park day, or recycling event. They are sure to be a hit!
