The “Coolest Way to Eat Fruit” in New York City, Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit Pops™ Launches at HB Stores
|NEW YORK, Dec. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — In 2009, Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit Co™ started as a small idea with the hope of filling a large void in the frozen treat market. With its chic Manhattan storefront attracting crowds, the company has quickly turned into a gastronomical phenomenon, setting a new standard for the industry. Now a version of the popular Soft Serve Fruit, created by Chloe Epstein, mom of three and her partner, tri-athlete Michael Sloan, is available nationwide as a consumer packaged good. Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit Pops™, packaged for retail as ‘Chloe’s Naturally 3 Pops’ come in strawberry, mango and raspberry 4-packs, each pop is 2.5 FL OZ. The suggested MSRP is $3.99-$5.99. H-E-B is the first retailer to launch the product and national expansion of the retail brand will continue throughout 2014 through select retailers.
In creating Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit, “I was searching for an alternative to the artificial ingredients of frozen yogurt and the fat and dairy of ice cream. I was looking for something that I could confidently serve myself and my children,” said Chloe. “Michael and I created Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit Co. after experimenting with frozen fruit in our home kitchens. We set out to develop a delicious, wholesome, innovative frozen treat with minimal ingredients. We believe that it’s possible to indulge in great tasting food that is at the same time great for you. What soon followed was the discovery that our Soft Serve Fruit worked just as well on a stick as it did in a cup. We could now offer an alternative to the traditional frozen fruit bar made from the same three ingredients by introducing a Soft Serve Fruit Pop!”
Made with just three ingredients: real fruit, filtered water and a touch of organic cane sugar, Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit Pops are not your typical frozen fruit bar. They are rich with intense fruit flavor and have a creamy consistency created by the company’s proprietary, three-ingredient Soft Serve Fruit process. The creamy Soft Serve Fruit is dispensed directly into the pop molds resulting in this deliciously unique treat with only 60 calories. Chloe’s Naturally 3 Pops are dairy free, gluten free, fat free, GMO free, cholesterol free, free of all eight major allergens and are certified kosher pareve and vegan. In less than two years, these Pops have become the “darling” of New York City residents—celebrities and regular folks alike.
“We’ve witnessed a tremendous response to our Pops from everyone be it parents, kids, foodies, health conscious consumers, and those with food sensitivities and field constant requests to make our Soft Serve Fruit more accessible,” adds Chloe. “Making our Pops available for nationwide distribution to grocery stores is an answer to that demand. Adults appreciate the minimal, real fruit ingredients as well as the distinct consistency, and everyone loves the taste!”
