This is chocolate you won’t feel guilty for eating.
Zing! Healthy Foods, from Orangeline Farms, is marketing Chocolate Bell Peppers, grown in its Leamington, Ontario greenhouse.

 

 

“It’s not something you see every day in the produce aisle,” Jordan Kniaziew, vice president of sales and marketing, said in a news release.

 “We are trying to turn more people on to this variety to add some Zing! To their meals and snacks.”

 

 

The peppers are sweeter than traditional bell peppers, according to the release.

 

 

“Any pepper that looks so different from your classic bell pepper colors should have a unique taste and flavor profile. This pepper doesn’t disappoint,” Kniaziew said in the release. 

“The sweet taste and deep color is ideal for those adventurous foodies who want to impress their guests with something unexpected.”
