Cocopotamus' Gluten-Free Artisanal Dark Chocolate Truffles Delight Health-Conscious Consumers

Celebrity-endorsed all-natural chocolates also available in vegan flavors

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Dec. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Looking for a doable New Year's Resolution?  Give up the guilt by sticking with the good stuff.  That's the suggestion from family-owned artisanal chocolatier Cocopotamus, a dark chocolate fudge truffle maker on a mission to spread the joy of great chocolate without all that pesky guilt.  Cocopotamus chocolate dark chocolate fudge truffles have been featured in the past by dozens of press outlets including both Health Magazine and Lifetime TV network, which praised it for being both healthy and delicious.  The chocolatiers never use corn syrup, use plenty of antioxidant-rich dark chocolate, and add healthy Vitamin C to every batch. It is hand-made, all natural and gluten-free.

"We're label readers, so we look at all aspects of health, but for us the biggest deal is that our products be gluten-free," Master Chocolatier Ally Sinclair explains.  That's because her husband, Cocopotamus by NYDC Chocolate CEO Max Sinclair, has Celiac disease.  Gluten-free products are a growing trend, and many people are choosing to go gluten-free as a lifestyle.  For those with serious gluten-intolerance and Celiac, however, it is not a choice but a necessity. 

"One of our favorite things is working with Whole Foods Market, because they really get it," Sinclair says.  "From the quality to the taste, healthiness, and the marketing, we love to collaborate." Cocopotamus is sold nationwide from its website and at stores in 20 states and Canada, including Whole Foods Market in the Rocky Mountain region.  

Cocopotamus also creates vegan truffles:  Ronald Vegan is their 70% dark vegan chocolate truffle, and The Vegan Mary is a vegan dark salted caramel truffle.   

Many fervent fans of the brand have no idea of the health aspects to it.  Based on the fun flavors, Cocopotamus has grown in popularity with both regular people and celebrities.  Cocopotamus dark chocolate fudge and caramel truffles were chosen for the Celebrity Gift - also know as the coveted "swag bag" - for the 65th Emmy Awards this past fall. It was not the first time the stars got Cocopotamus; the truffles were chosen for the Academy Awards in 2011 and 2013 and the Golden Globe Awards in 2012. 

Cocopotamus truffles are all natural, hand-made and always gluten-free.  The brand creates 32 flavors of dark chocolate truffles.  Cocopotamus is sold nationwide from its website and at stores in 20 states and Canada.  It is also sold at Whole Foods Market in the Rocky Mountain Region.
