"Spiced nuts are the perfect addition to the Real Fruit Dipped in DOVE® Dark Chocolate product line," said Kerry Cavanaugh, Brand Director, DOVE® Brand.

The DOVE® Chocolate Difference
From bean to bar, Mars takes great care to maintain the highest standards of quality when manufacturing DOVE® Chocolate.
It all starts with only the best cacao beans, which are tested twice by expert Mars Associate craftspeople for quality and flavor. The beans are then taken through special roasting and grinding techniques to create the signature silky smooth taste of DOVE® Chocolate. Finally, Mars adds the perfect combination of chocolate liquor and 100 percent pure cocoa butter to create a balanced taste that's not too sweet, nor too bitter.
