Bard Valley Natural Delights kicks off its date season with the launch of Dark Chocolate Covered Medjool Dates with Sea Salt in 8-count and 16-count packages. An ample supply of both limited-edition package sizes will begin shipping in September to be available for the holiday season. The release of this premium product coincides with the August start of the Natural Delights date season.

“We are excited about our delicious new product,” explains David Baxter, Bard Valley’s brand manager in a press release. “Research indicates that more than 90 per cent of consumers plan to share or gift chocolates during the holidays. Our upscale packaging features a die-cut window to showcase the product, and it also serves as a gift box.”

Bard Valley’s premium Medjool dates are world-renowned for their luscious, soft texture and sweet, caramel-honey flavour. These dates are bigger and softer than other date varieties and demand a very specific set of growing conditions including high heat and low humidity. Natural Delights Medjools are sustainably grown, and the cocoa is sourced from suppliers that implement practices to improve the livelihoods of cocoa farmers and their communities.

“The combination of our hand-pitted Medjool dates with a dark chocolate covering and sprinkled with sea salt creates a taste experience that will drive consumers to purchase these for themselves and as a gift,” suggests Baxter.
