OCHO Organic Candy Bars

by Anne Paddock

Step aside Mounds, Reese’s, Snickers, Milky Way and Three Musketeers..there’s a new bar in town.

Most candy bars fall into two categories: inexpensive chocolate bars made with all sorts of undesirable additives or expensive gourmet bars made with fresh high quality ingredients. With both ends of the chocolate bar market well covered, Oakland, California-based OCHO Candy realized there was an opportunity to provide consumers with a delicious, organic alternative to the traditional candy bars made with preservatives, additives, and artificial flavoring, and the pricy specialty bar.

Committed to the firm belief that candy bars should be fun and delicious, the master chocolatiers at OCHO Candy created a variety of luscious candy bars made with all organic ingredients including dark chocolate, milk chocolate, peanut butter, peanuts, sugar, vanilla, tapioca, coffee, egg whites, milk butter, and salt, and sell those bars for less than $2 each at grocery stores nationwide.1508029_788538857829158_788466306_n

An OCHO Organic Candy Bar is slightly smaller than the standard sized 1.5-1.9 ounce commercial candy bar but at 1.4 ounces, the OCHO (which stands for Organic CHOcolate) bar is the perfect size bar to enjoy anytime. Choose from among five varieties:

OCHO Coconut Bar: A creamy, moist coconut center covered in dark chocolate. Certified vegan and scrumptious.1526845_808487932500917_1960475377_n
