Austin Chocolate Makers Introduce Line of Worldly, Antioxidant-Enriched Ganache Products

Wayward Chocolat, an Austin-based gourmet chocolate company specializing in Parisian-style chocolate, today introduced its line of antioxidant-enriched dark chocolate products. Wayward Chocolat (Wayward) uses only real, all-natural dark chocolate to make velvety ganache pieces, sauce and spread, each infused with wild organic rose hips and berries for a naturally healthy treat. These enrichments contain a powerful boost of antioxidants, and though their taste is undetectable, their health benefits are plentiful.

“We wanted to provide consumers with an elevated dark chocolate experience, so we have spent more than 10 years perfecting our signature ganache recipe,” said Wayward founder and chief executive officer, Rick Bristow. “Its taste is unprecedented, and its ingredients treat your body well, too.”

Wayward’s line of velvety dark chocolate products includes ganache-filled pieces in two-count, four-count, eight-count, 15-count and 30-count boxes, perfect for corporate or personal gifting. Additionally, customers can enjoy a dark chocolate ganache spread, perfect for spreading on fruit or toast, or sauce for serving over desserts or mixed in a chocolate martini.

Wayward’s ingredients include semi-sweet dark chocolate, organic cream, crème d’cacao and wild organic rose hip and wild berry powder, sourced from the largest organic plot in the world, located in the pristine Alaska wilderness. Due to the location’s unique climate, the berries are high in phytonutrients and contain higher-than-average antioxidant levels. In fact, each of Wayward’s dark chocolate ganache pieces has the equivalent antioxidant level of a half a cup of domestically cultivated blueberries. The rose hips are loaded with catechins, a compound also found in green tea, which are well-documented health protective agents.

 “The exceptional quality of ingredients in Wayward Chocolat contributes to good health and the quality of the chocolate is really nice,” says Dr. Maureen McKenzie, founder and chief executive officer of Denali Biotechnologies, Inc. “The bioactives found in chocolate, wild rose hips and wild berries complement one another and are synergistic. It’s not just delicious; it’s also good for you.”

Wayward products contain no hydrogenated oils or high fructose corn syrup, and each piece has only 80 calories, making them the perfect treat to enjoy at any time.

These beneficial traits make Wayward a truly one-of-a-kind creation that consumers can gift richly for personal or corporate occasions or use to create delectable treats. Wayward products retail between $15.00 and $75.00 and can be purchased online at
