Miski Good Foods™ debuts organic, sugar-free treat in advance of Halloween
21 September 2021
Miski Good Foods™ is making it easy for parents and kiddos to stay healthy this Halloween with the debut of Puffed Amaranth Dark Chocolate Barks, a sugar-free and nut-free candy. Available for purchase on October 15, the treat is made with all-natural, organic ingredients and offers an indulgent alternative to high-sugar Halloween candy.
Miski Good Foods™, owned by Miski Organic Superfoods Inc., is a family-owned business based in Barrie, Ontario, founded by sisters Mariella Irivarren and Lía Ponce. The company is committed to helping families transition to healthier eating by offering an assortment of nutrient-rich, organic, non-GMO and gluten-free products targeted to people of all ages. Plus, many of the product ingredients are sourced from farmers in Peru, the sisters’ home country, where they hope to make an impact by improving living conditions in rural communities, keeping farmers employed, and transitioning communities from economic instability to self-sufficiency.
With the understanding that children who can’t have a lot of sugar are left out of Halloween fun – after all, who wants to eat fruit instead of candy? – Mariella and Lía designed an addictive snack that’s naturally low in sugar and made with antioxidant-rich dark chocolate, a superfood that’s high in manganese, heart-healthy fats and iron, and improves brain function. The Puffed Amaranth Dark Chocolate Barks joins a powerhouse lineup of 40 foods, including new products like Vegan and Gluten-free Pancake Mix and Waffle Mix, Maca Cacao Blend, and Dark Chocolate Covered Fruits.
“I’m thrilled that we can launch Puffed Amaranth Dark Chocolate Barks in time for Halloween,” said Mariella Irivarren, cofounder and director of operations and compliance. “In our own family, we believe treats should contain nutrients and superfoods, and we avoid unnecessary extra sugar. That said, as Peruvians we’re also passionate about good food, so it was definitely a challenge creating a snack that ticks the boxes for flavour, nutrition and no sugar. However, we’re confident that kids and parents everywhere will love our Puffed Amaranth Dark Chocolate Barks, and we hope it will become a go-to household snack well beyond Halloween!”
Miski Good Foods’™ Puffed Amaranth Dark Chocolate Barks will be available for purchase on the Miski website starting October 15. To learn more, visit www.miskigoodfoods.com.
