“Cloud Nine’s all-natural candy bars have none of the trans-fats, preservatives, artificial ingredients, and colors found in many other candies,” said Tom Miner, Vice President of Operations for Cloud Nine Confections and designer of the new line of candy bars.

Research has demonstrated that consumption of trans-fats increases the risk of coronary heart disease. Cloud Nine candy bars have zero trans-fats. Although companies have until 2006 to list trans-fats on their labels, the FDA has determined that most mass-market candy bars contain an average of 3 grams of trans-fats (see: www.StrausCom.com/cloud9 for details).

The candy bars contain:

    • No preservatives, artificial colors, or flavors
    • No hydrogenated or fractionated oils and no trans-fats
    • No refined sugars

The candy bars range in weight from 1.75 to 2.0 ounces, and sell at a suggested retail price of $1.79.

Founded in 1991 to help support rain forest preservation, Cloud Nine continues to support cocoa industry reform and the use of fair labor practices in worldwide cocoa production.
