Long Island’s Disset Chocolate has introduced the Beet Breast Cancer Bar, created to raise money in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month.
The vegan Beet Breast Cancer Bar is made with dark chocolate and locally sourced beets that are cooked, dehydrated, and powdered, which gives the bar an earthy flavor and distinctive pink color.
The bars are available for $10, and all proceeds will go to PinkAid, a charity on Long Island that helps underserved breast cancer patients. Pink Aid’s programs provide services throughout the breast cancer cycle, from free breast cancer screening and advanced testing to helping cover non-medical expenses, such as household bills, food cards, wigs, recovery garments, emotional wellness services, and more. In 10 years, the organization has granted more than $7 million to various organizations and has helped pay nearly $1.3 million in household bills for patients.
Disset’s Beet Breast Cancer Bars will be available throughout October, while supplies last.
