Enjoy Life® Foods Says Happy Valentine’s Day with Recipes for Allergy-Friendly ‘Chocolate’ Treats


Enjoy Life Foods Valentine's Day S'moresSCHILLER PARK, IL – Cupids in the kitchens of Enjoy Life® Foods today unveiled two delicious recipes that will allow the millions of children and adults in America with food allergies and food intolerances to enjoy the gift of chocolate this year for Valentine’s Day. The main ingredients in Enjoy Life’s Sweetheart S’mores and I’m CHOCO for you! Candies are Enjoy Life Foods new boom CHOCO boom bars – the first dairy- nut- and soy-FREE chocolate bars.  With boom CHOCO boom bars, food-allergic children and adults need no longer miss out when it comes to enjoying the rich, creamy, irresistible taste of chocolate.

Enjoy Life Foods’ recipe for heart-shaped Sweetheart S’mores calls for a delicious combination of Enjoy Life Snickerdoodle cookies, marshmallows and pieces of Enjoy Life’s boom CHOCO boom bar.

I’m CHOCO for you! Candies are doubly delicious because they’re made with both Enjoy Life’s boom CHOCO boom bars and its Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips, which when combined with Sunbutter® sunflower seed butter, deliver a delectable, chocolately sunbuttery taste.

Both Sweetheart S’mores and I’m CHOCO for you! Candies are free of wheat, gluten, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg and soy (see recipes below).  For further information on Enjoy Life Foods product and recipes, and for valuable coupon offers, visit www.enjoylifefoods.com.
