Industry News: Lekkco Belgian Dark Chocolate Spread Sweetens Shelves in 1,500 Kroger Stores Nationwide

 

America's first nut-free and vegan Belgian dark chocolate spread delights fans with four delicious varieties

CAROL STREAM, Ill., Aug. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The rich, authentic flavor of Belgian dark chocolate is now available as a healthier indulgent spread in 1,500 Kroger stores around the country. Made in Belgium with the highest quality, all-natural ingredients sourced in Europe, Lekkco Belgian Dark Chocolate Spread introduces a nut-free, vegan and lower-sugar complement to an endless array of breakfast dishes, snacks and desserts ($5.99/9.5oz SRP).

Perfect on its own or delightful for spreading, drizzling, baking and dipping, Lekkco captures the smooth, true chocolate taste of Belgian dark chocolate – without any bitterness.

Lekkco Belgian Dark Chocolate Spread is available in Original, and with a hint of natural flavor in Caramel & Sea Salt, Coconut, and Caribbean Banana. Each variety contains 60 calories and 4g sugar per serving. The recipe is also gluten-free, dairy-free and non-GMO.

Family founded and majority owned, the name Lekkco refers to the Flemish (Dutch) word "Lekker," which means "something delicious." The spread is inspired by Lekkco co-founder Bram Bourgeois' Belgian upbringing and frequent visits there with partner and wife Jennifer Lukas-Bourgeois and their two daughters.

"We absolutely love the tradition of chocolate for breakfast in Belgium so this is a concept we had to bring to life here in the U.S.," says Lekkco co-founder Jennifer Lukas-Bourgeois. "While the traditional way to enjoy our dark chocolate spread is on a slice of bread, tasty croissant or baguette, it's an amazing addition to toast with fruit, waffles, pancakes, rice cakes, smoothie bowls, and, on-trend charcuterie trays."

Explosion in Spreads Category and Center Store Visits

With more Americans cooking at home and strolling grocery aisles this year, sales of center store staples are increasing at a booming rate of 22%.1 The chocolate spreads category alone is forecasted to grow nearly 5% annually through 2024, which analysts attribute to the product's versatility in recipes and consumer interest in reduced sugar and better-for-you products.2

Lekkco Belgian Dark Chocolate Spread contains 30% less sugar than hazelnut spreads and is a safe option for homes and schools with allergy restrictions. It's also made with all-natural, sustainably sourced ingredients and oils. It is shelf stable and does not require refrigeration.

"Friends used to beg us to bring chocolate spreads back with us from Belgium so we knew Lekkco would work really well here – they're now overjoyed to find it at Kroger stores nationwide," adds Jennifer Lukas-Bourgeois. "We can't wait for others to give it a try. Like many families, we're heading into a new school year juggling work, home and virtual education; we're all about quick but delicious breakfasts and snacks and Lekkco dark chocolate spread is an easy fruit topper or dip we turn to throughout the day."

Dairy Spotlight Spotlight: Cocoa Metro Belgian Chocolate Milk

 

Cocoa Metro Belgian Chocolate Milk is a premium drinking chocolate with a richer, deeper cocoa taste. A healthy dose of natural Belgian chocolate, fresh dairy milk, real sugar, and natural vanilla give you a dark Belgian chocolate milk that answers your serious chocolate cravings. And you know how dangerous unanswered chocolate cravings can be.

 

 

What´s in It?

Belgian Cocoa + Fresh Milk (no hormones) + Real Sugar + Natural Vanilla + Carrageenan

Yes, that’s all folks.

We’re not messing around here. Only the best Belgian chocolate—heaps of it—goes into our fresh milk. We carefully chose our Belgian chocolate for its deep and rich cocoa flavor profile. It is high end cocoa for high end Mmmmm. And about that fresh milk—it comes from family farms and people who really are into what they do. These cows are the most socially well-adjusted cows on earth. And they don’t ever do drugs. We just can’t let our cow friends have any loathsome hormones. They’re clean.

Do yourself a favor—don’t pour it into a cup. Drink right from the bottle.
