The new eco-friendly chocolate surprise egg brand, Forest of Hope, has been launched in Ireland, now available in Tesco stories.

The Fairtrade-accredited brand is owned by Kinnerton and works closely with farmers in Sierra Leone’s Gola Rainforest who grow their cocoa in harmony with the surroundings to protect it and its endangered wildlife, whilst creating a livelihood for farmers families and building local communities.

Its range is made of nine nut-free eggs that come with a range of fun activities for kids to enjoy. Each egg reveals a different surprise animal native to the Gola Rainforest, such as the Pygmy Hippo and African Forest Elephant.

The chocolate treats also contain over 30 challenge cards to collect including family activity games to complete and animal facts, all made using 100% recyclable materials.

 Tara Stevens, Brand Manager, said: “We are so excited to launch Forest of Hope in Tesco Ireland, bringing something new and exciting to the children’s confectionery market, whilst also creating a more hopeful future for the planet that appeals to the new generation.

“Forest of Hope is forest friendly, fair to farmers and fun for families. We are so proud to have created a plastic-free, delicious chocolate product, that delivers innovation and education while also supporting cocoa farmers in Sierra Leone.”
