At Supertreats we’ve been working hard on a brand new carob bar combining some of our favourite things…

We’re very excited to introduce our new Cheery Chia bar, a delicious combination of our mouth-watering carob chocolate, pure organic orange oil and superfood chia seeds! With its succulent, sweet taste and unique chia crunchiness, it’s the perfect treat for all lovers of orange chocolate.

Bursting with goodness

Cheery Chia_cameoTiny chia seeds are actually giants of nutrition; they’re rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, protein, fibre, various micronutrients and antioxidants. Organic orange oil is loaded with health benefits too. It’s been hailed as having anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and immune-boosting qualities and is acclaimed as a natural mood lifter, helping to alleviate depression, anxiety and chronic fatigue.

Like our other carob bars, Cheery Chia tastes fantastic but is also totally good for you. It doesn’t contain any caffeine (unlike milk, dark or raw chocolate) or refined sugar and is packed with wholesome goodness.

How I came up with the flavour – by Founder, Virpi Venho-Jones

“Growing up in Finland, my childhood favourite treat was an orange chocolate from a well-known Swedish brand”, explains Virpi. “It was an orange-flavoured milk chocolate that had tiny crispy bits in it, which I really loved. In those days, it didn’t matter to me that it was full of refined sugar and other not-so-wholesome ingredients. But, nowadays, I care deeply about what my family and I eat and so I wanted to create a healthier version of it that everyone could enjoy. And so the idea for Cheery Chia was born!”

“I’m thrilled to say our Cheery Chia bar tastes just as yummy and indulgent as my childhood favourite, but the ingredients we use are so much better for you: low-GI coconut blossom nectar replaces refined sugar; superfood carob replaces stimulant-containing cocoa; crunchy chia seeds replace the crispy sugary bits, and pure natural orange oil replaces the orange flavouring. And like our other bars, all the ingredients are sourced organically and ethically.”

Cheery Chia bars are available now from our wonderful stockists. We hope you love them as much as we do! We’d love to hear what you think. Get in touch via our FaceBook, Twitter or Instagram sites or drop us a line at hello@supertreats.co.uk
