(Nyack, NY) – March 4, 2011 – Nyack, New York-based Q.bel Foods LLC, makers of crispy, crunchy chocolate covered wafers, today announced its first charity contest for 2011. The contest will run through the month of March and will require fans to submit a short paragraph on Q.bel’s Facebook, Twitter or Wordpress sites explaining why they think their charity of choice is closely aligned with Q.bel’s mantra, “Be True. Be Honest. Be Good.” Once all submissions have been received, Q.bel will select a qualifying entry and the winner will receive a donation to their charity as well as $25 in Q.bel coupons. Previous donations have been made to Heifer International, The Cloth Diaper Foundation and The Cambridge Women’s Center.
The Q.bel product line was launched in January 2009, with an initial national rollout by Whole Foods Markets. By the end of 2010, the company had already sold over 2 million pieces of Q.bel, and the brand was expanded to twelve varieties, which were sold in an estimated 2,000 stores. Not only is Q.bel committed to using the finest, all-natural ingredients, their commitment to sustainability is noted in their use of 100% recycled and recyclable paper and plastic trays, while also supporting suppliers who engage in “green” energy practices. This contest is the first of several that Q.bel expects to hold during 2011 to support a variety of charities favored by its fans.
Q.bel is available nationwide in all Whole Foods Markets and many specialty stores and retails for $1.19-$1.49. The new stand-up bag, a format that has led to growth in the chocolate category over the last year, is available in four varieties of their chocolate wafer rolls: Peanut Butter with Milk Chocolate, Milk Chocolate (36% cacao), Dark Chocolate (52% cacao), and the new Deep Dark Chocolate (72% cacao). Each bag contains eight individually wrapped chocolate wafer rolls and retails for $3.99.
