Introducing Ghirardelli Chocolate's New Squeeze Bottle Size Packs of Premium Chocolate, White Chocolate and Caramel Sauces

New squeeze bottles an ideal solution for topping beverages & desserts

San Francisco, CA April 29, 2011 — The Ghirardelli Chocolate Foodservice Division has launched a new squeeze bottle size pack for its popular chocolate, white chocolate and caramel sauces. Ghirardelli’s chocolate sauce contains both premium cocoa as well as chocolate liquor for a thick, rich true chocolate flavor. The caramel sauce has a sweet, creamy flavor, identical to Ghirardelli’s best selling caramel filled square. The white chocolate sauce contains both real cocoa butter and dairy for a decadent flavor.

“Ghirardelli’s chocolate and caramel sauces have long been extremely popular for specialty coffee drinks, milkshakes or as a topping for frozen yogurt and desserts. The new squeeze bottle size now makes it possible for customers to use our high quality sauces for even more applications such as platescaping and latte art,” stated Chris Eklem, Vice President of Ghirardelli Chocolate’s Foodservice Division.

In particular this new packaging will offer the following benefits:

  • Small size is perfect for low volume units where spoilage is a concern
  • Cap allows for decorating the inside of glasses, drizzling on beverages and platescaping
  • Re-closable lid prevents spilling & spoilage
  • Can be placed upside down to allow product to drain towards tip for full evacuation.
  • Small package footprint for crowded coffee shops, kitchens, or bars.
  • Premium packaging and brand appeals to customers

The chocolate squeeze bottle is 16oz while the caramel and white chocolate bottles are each 17oz.
