SkinnyDipped Offers New Lower Sugar Baking Bits
October 13, 2021
SkinnyDipped, maker of insanely delicious sweet snacks with less sugar and no dirty secrets, is making another splash with the launch of lower-sugar chocolate Baking Bits in two mouthwatering flavors. The brand's new products - perfect for baking, snacking and melting - have up to 67% less sugar than leading brands and are made without stevia or sugar alcohols.
Baking has been on the rise in the last year, with the baking chocolate category up +140% during the pandemic and overall home baking products sales showing significant growth in 2021 according to industry research by SPINS. SkinnyDipped saw an opportunity to deliver a better baking experience for consumers while also maintaining a focus on snackability.
"Not only are SkinnyDipped Bits ideally suited for baking because of their amazing taste, lower sugar and just-right meltability, but they're super snackable for all the same reasons," says SkinnyDipped CEO Breezy Griffith. "Different from a traditional chip, we've given bakers and snackers alike a unique product form in a conventional lay-flat pillow pack as well as a resealable stand-up pouch, making it easy to grab a handful and save the rest."
Baking Bits are SkinnyDipped's third major launch this year, following on the heels of the brand's successful peanut butter cups and chocolate bars that launched in April. Similar to those items, Baking Bits break category convention and deliver an indulgent taste with way less sugar and without using sugar substitutes like stevia that can leave an undesirable aftertaste or sugar alcohols that can cause stomach upsets. Instead, SkinnyDipped sweetens their Baking Bits with a blend of cane sugar and allulose; allulose is a sugar found in fruits like raisins and figs that tastes like cane sugar but has 90% fewer calories.
