Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker is rolling out a host of new products across its portfolio designed to deliver more flavor, more ways to bake and entertain with chocolate, more on-trend options, and more convenience to consumers. As promised in fall of 2022, Scharffen Berger is expanding on its core line, keeping the signature quality Scharffen Berger blend consistent with the past while expanding upon its legacy baking and bar offerings. In addition, the brand is launching Chocolate Provisions by Scharffen Berger, chocolate flats perfect for charcuterie boards, pairing parties, or simply snacking.

“Our team has accomplished a great deal in the past six to eight months, and I am so proud to follow up our announcement in October around the new branding, packaging, staff, and general direction for the business with this next bit of news about our innovation and expansion,” said JP Mackey, president and chief sales officer for Scharffen Berger. “The innovation builds upon the history and quality of Scharffen Berger that has existed since the late 90’s. These new flavors, new packaging formats and new product line are going to help us return this time-honored brand to its rightful leadership position among the innovators in chocolate.”

The new direction for the brand was set in motion when Scharffen Berger was returned to private ownership in 2020. Since then, the company has debuted new branding, shored up the leadership and commercial team with “experienced entrepreneurs” to ensure quicker routes to success, and are now expanding its top-tier fine chocolate portfolio to meet the needs of today’s consumers and retailers.

Mackey continued, “We’ve got two brand-new chocolate chunk varieties—an Oat Milk Chocolate with Coconut Sugar and a Dark Milk Chocolate with Maple Sugar—plus we’ve re-packaged our entire chunk line in convenient, resealable stand-up pouches that will showcase the premium nature of the brand on shelf the way a fully craft made baking chocolate should be. We’ve added four new flavors to our classic 3-oz. bar line, and we’ve officially invited chocolate to the charcuterie board with the launch of our Chocolate Provisions line. The best news is, we’re just getting started!”

Scharffen Berger’s chocolate maker, Ray Major, said, “I am immensely excited about all of our new product introductions. Our reputation was built making the finest dark chocolate. To these we eventually added a superb milk chocolate, and now finally all the stops are out as we add unique combinations of the highest quality ingredients to our chunks and our classic 3 oz. bars.”


New Scharffen Berger 3-oz. Bar Flavors

Scharffen Berger’s core line of three-ounce bars—currently offered in 41% Cacao Extra Rich Milk Chocolate, 62% Cacao Semisweet Dark Chocolate, 70% Cacao Bittersweet Dark Chocolate, and 82% Cacao Extra Dark Chocolate—welcomes four new flavors:

  • 41% Cacao Milk Chocolate with Almonds and Sea Salt
  • 41% Cacao Milk Chocolate with Toasted Coconut and Coffee
  • 70% Cacao Dark Chocolate with Cherries, Almonds and Sea Salt
  • 70% Cacao Dark Chocolate with Salted Almonds and Toffee

Major added, “I love all of these new flavors, each of which delivers an amazing eating experience, but if I had to pick a favorite, it would be the 41% Cacao Milk Chocolate with Toasted Coconut and Coffee, mostly because the incredible coffee it contains is sourced from the same valley where we source our Colombian cacao.”


Scharffen Berger Chocolate Baking Chunks

Scharffen Berger’s signature baking chunks are specially formulated for optimum meltability. The current line, which features 62% Semisweet Chocolate Chunks and 70% Bittersweet Chocolate Chunks, adds two new expressions, which open up a world of possibilities for dairy-free or plant-based baking.

  • 43% Cacao Oat Milk Chocolate Chunks with Coconut Sugar—dairy-free milk chocolate that performs like its milk-based counterpart, with all the same melting properties and Scharffen Berger’s signature richer, deep flavor profile.
  • 55% Cacao Dark Milk Chocolate with Maple Sugar—High cacao content milk chocolate chunk with maple sugar to tone down the over sweetness with losing a bit of the creaminess.

"I was overcome with excitement to see how well the 43% Cacao Oat Milk chunks performed as a baking chocolate. I treated it just like the 41% Cacao Extra Rich Milk chocolate and it held up to expectations,” said Sarah Pineda, professional pastry chef and Scharffen Berger recipe developer. “Having a dairy-free milk chocolate will be a game changer when it comes to creating something that will fit the needs of people with dietary restrictions while at the same time taste amazing."

In addition, the full line of baking chunks will now come packaged in stand-up, resealable pouches for convenient use and storage of leftovers as well as ease of display on retail shelves.
