WALLINGFORD, Conn., Jan. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Edible Arrangements will help you escape your winter woes with a little taste of sunshine. The Fruit Experts® know that January is prime time for navel oranges – and cold weather doldrums are no match for the new Gourmet Shareable™ Chocolate Covered Orange.
Bright, fresh and juicy fruit full of Vitamin C is never more appealing than this time of year. In addition to being delicious, oranges can help lift our spirits, as Vitamin C has been shown to reduce both the physical and psychological effects of stress. Edible Arrangements takes the mood-boosting fruit to the next level, hand-dipping eight individual slices in premium chocolate and decadent flavor combinations.
For a fun and festive touch to suit any occasion, each Gourmet Shareable™ Chocolate Covered Orange arrives in a deluxe, customizable box.
"With the launch of our first Gourmet Shareable™ line last fall, we wanted to bring something equally craveable in the new year," said Rob Price, President of Edible Arrangements. "The shareable treats trend is growing and our new products allow us to take a big bite out of the market."
The orange is the second in Edible Arrangements®' Gourmet Shareable™ line of shareable chocolate covered fruit to be rolled out over the next year and beyond. These delectable new creations, as well as fresh fruit smoothies and other Edible-to-Go® offerings are part of the ongoing evolution of the Edible Arrangements® brand, best known for its fresh cut fruit arrangements.
If you can't seem to get enough of all things orange, you are in luck, since the citrus favorite is the star of the show this season. From its beloved arrangements, to chocolate Dipped Fruit™ boxes, to additional treats in the Edible to Go® line – including the delectable Oranges & Cream Smoothie and Citrus Fruit Salad, there's something for every orange lover to enjoy.
The Gourmet Shareable™ Chocolate Covered Orange, $39, arrives in four exciting flavor combinations:
Black & White – The best of both worlds, half of these juicy wedges are topped with white chocolate and white Swizzle® for the perfect, creamy, sweet treat, while the rest are coated in rich, semisweet chocolate with semisweet Swizzle® for a completely different, delicious take.
Trail Mix & Pistachios – Savor a combination of textures and gourmet, nutty flavor that pairs perfectly with sweet and tangy orange.
Coconut Cream – Each wedge is covered in velvety white chocolate, half topped with white Swizzle®, while the rest are rolled in flaked coconut for a taste that is fresh and tropical.
Edible Selections - Edible® Selections - White Chocolate with Coconut, Semisweet with Micro Drops, Semisweet with Pistachio, Semisweet with Trail Mix, Semisweet with Almonds, Semisweet with Cranberry, Semisweet with Dark Swizzle®, and White with White Swizzle®.
