Vegan chocolate manufacturer, Peakz is now being stocked in over 132 Circle K forecourt convenience store chain (formally known as Topaz) in Ireland, and in Google’s HQ.
The Circle K stores will stock Peakz Caramel Crunchy Chocolate Squares, which is made from a blend of caramel and chocolate, with a hint of sea salt, and Google employees can snack on all three flavours - which include plain chocolate, mint, forest berry, hazelnut, and orange.
Aalya Magsi and Linnea Mullenbach launched Peakz in 2017 as a way of shedding light on the effects of climate change and its impact on biodiversity across the world through their delicious, nutritious and wholegrain snacks, with Nanook – a young polar bear, whose adventures are a driving force behind the brand.
Each square is packed with Iron and B12, made without any palm oil or GMO ingredients, are free from artificial colours, flavours or preservatives and are a perfect pick-me-up for any time of the day.
Magsi commented, “We are very excited to be partnering with Circle K as part of our launch in Ireland. There is real focus on making healthier snacks more accessible in this market and our Crunchy Chocolate Squares fill the gap perfectly by offering an indulgent vegan friendly chocolate treat at your local Circle K forecourt.”
Mullenbach added, “Circle K is a game changer for convenience retail- we could not be more pleased to be launching with their new rebranded stores.”
By 2020, the business plans to see Peakz become a global brand, with its products in retail stores across Europe and even in select cities in the US.
