Sprüngli Launches Vegan Praline Chocolates with Cocoa Fruit Juice

Swiss chocolatier Sprüngli presents new vegan pralines in the form of bâtons made from three Grand Cru fine chocolate combined with fresh cocoa fruit juice.

Two years ago, the company created the first Swiss Grand Cru chocolate made from 100% cocoa fruit, consisting of two ingredients: fine cocoa beans from Bolivia, and fresh cocoa fruit juice. With the new launch which debuts this September, Sprüngli once again uses fresh cocoa fruit juice in combination with fine cocoas from Venezuela, Ecuador and Bolivia.

Lindt & Sprüngli recently reported a 12.3% sales increase to CHF 1.99 billion for the first half of 2022, and recently ceased operations in Russia. Seeking Alpha recently reported on the company’s shares: “Lindt & Sprungli has seen growth and remained resilient during a challenging macroeconomic environment. While macroeconomic headwinds cannot be ruled out with respect to supply chain issues – I take the view that the company is in a good position to continue bolstering growth in sales and earnings from here.”

The Grand Cru Bâtons will be available from 20 September in all Sprüngli sales outlets and in the online shop.
