Ethel M Chocolates Brings Back Original 1932 Mars Bar

Ethel M Chocolates, a Nevada-based subsidiary of Mars, Inc., has revived the beloved classic Mars Bar under its label.

Mars BarManufactured in 1932 by Frank C. Mars, the Mars Bar was known for its “honest to goodness” milk chocolate, creamy nougat, and whole toasted almonds. Until now, the Mars Bar has only been continuously available outside of the United States.

“The Mars Bar is a favorite among chocolate lovers everywhere,” said Oren Young, General Manager of Ethel M Chocolates. “That’s why we wanted to bring back this nostalgic treat in its original form, by using the unique, hand-crafted touch that only Ethel M can offer.”

On Sept. 7, 2017, Ethel M Chocolates partnered with Fremont Street Experience in classic Downtown Las Vegas for a product launch.  During the event, Ethel M Chocolates provided free samples of the candy bar and captured visitor’s reactions to the product. Patrons passing by showed their “Mars Bar Face,” paying homage to vintage Mars Bar ads. The world’s largest digital Mars Bar, measuring 1,500 feet in length, was also displayed on the prominent Fremont Street canopy.

“Downtown Las Vegas was the perfect place for us to relaunch the Mars Bar,” said Young. “This was the original Vegas Strip, and while it has a modern look, it still has that iconic feel, which is what we want to accomplish with the relaunch of the Mars Bar under the Ethel M brand.”

Folgers Launches Gourmet Coffee Line

The fall beverages that coffee enthusiasts long for year-round have officially made their way back onto menus. It may come as a surprise that many of these seasonal favorites do not contain the ingredients their names imply. Enter Folgers® Simply Gourmet™ Coffee, a new line that maintains the perfect balance of 100 percent Arabica coffee and real, natural flavors.

Folgers Simply Gourmet coffee gives coffee lovers the opportunity to enjoy delicious, natural flavored coffee, and to recreate their favorite fall coffee recipes with no artificial flavors. One hundred percent premium Arabica beans are perfectly paired and balanced with natural flavors to create the following flavored coffees – Natural Vanilla, Natural Cinnamon, Natural Chocolate, Natural Caramel, Natural Chocolate Raspberry and Natural Mint.

To help showcase the flavors of the six, new Folgers Simply Gourmet flavored coffees, the brand enlisted esteemed Celebrity Chef and Food Network Personality, Alex Guarnaschelli, to serve as the Folgers Simply Gourmet Real Barista. Guarnaschelli will use each flavor to purposefully recraft popular coffee drinks and inspire new recipes using flavors that taste delicious.

From Cinnamon Pumpkin Pie Spice Lattes and Caramel Horchatas to Chocolate Raspberry Coffee Parfaits and Vanilla Coffee Sweet Potato Puree, Guarnaschelli’s Folgers Simply Gourmet coffee-inspired recipes could woo any coffee-obsessed heart or foodie’s soul, available on Folgers.com.

“To earn a favorable rating from me as a judge, you must understand balance and be thoughtful when it comes to choosing and pairing recipe ingredients,” says Guarnaschelli. “Folgers Simply Gourmet coffee made the conceptualization and development of these fall recipes easy for me, given how the brand prioritized natural flavors above all else. Coffee has never been trendier than it is right now, so I think it’s important that Folgers has taken the initiative to create and provide coffee drinkers with six natural flavored coffees that have a decadent taste and aroma.”

Every fall there is a flurry of flavored coffee activity, and Folgers wanted to provide a natural flavored coffee option to satisfy consumers’ taste preferences without the use of artificial ingredients. Coffee drinkers have the opportunity to experience their favorite fall coffees in a more authentic, and balanced way with the new Folgers Simply Gourmet coffee.

Sierra Nevada Cheese Company Expands Graziers Yogurt Line

Sierra Nevada Cheese Company has introduced two new flavors to its Graziers line of Whole Milk Grass-Fed Yogurts. Mixed Berry and Lemon join a line that already includes Plain, Vanilla, Strawberry and Vanilla in 6-ounce cups and Plain and Vanilla in 24-ounce cups.

Sierra Nevada Grass-Fed Yogurts for webThe milk that’s used to make the Graziers Yogurts, like the milk that makes the company’s Graziers Cheeses, which are offered in Raw Medium Cheddar, Raw Monterey Jack, Raw Sharp Cheddar and Raw Jalapeno Jack, is sourced from northern California family dairy farms that have their cows – an average of about 100 cows per farm – on pasture for about 335 days a year. The farmers use intensive rotational grazing to keep the cattle moving from one small lot to another every day to ensure that the cows are always eating grasses with the highest nutritional quality to provide optimal nutritional value for the milk they produce. Cows fed on this kind of intensively managed pasture produce milk that’s much higher in conjugated linoleic acid, an Omega-6 fatty acid that’s thought to have positive health effects, than the milk from grain-fed cows. This kind of pasture management has also been shown to benefit the environment by reducing soil erosion and increasing carbon sequestration, the ability of the soil to capture and hold carbon so that it is not released as carbon dioxide, which is a greenhouse gas.

The Graziers yogurts are made from whole milk that’s non-homogenized, so that a layer of cream forms on the top of every cup. The fruit is organic, in keeping with the company’s clean ingredients philosophy.
