Silver Fern Brand launches no-sugar, high-fiber Cenavi chocolates with probiotics
SALT LAKE CITY — There's a new brand of chocolate hitting shelves, and this one is sweetened with the natural sweetener Kakato.
Developed for Silver Fern by chocolatier Art Pollard, Cenavi has no added sugar or sugar alcohols, is high in fiber and contains the only strain of probiotics proven to boost the body’s metabolism for long-term weight loss.
The first items available online now at Silver Fern Brand and Amazon.com include 70% dark chocolate flats, chocolate-covered almonds and barks in three flavors:
- Spicy Mango
- Cranberry, Blueberry and Ginger
- Hemp Seed and Toasted Coconut
“Since we are chocolate lovers ourselves, we set out to develop the healthiest chocolate available,” said Phil Cox, CEO and founder, Silver Fern Brand. “Cenavi is the real thing, with the best, most flavorful cocoa beans from around the world, and it tastes like the real thing. And even better, because its ingredients include Kakato, high fiber and probiotics, you could literally lose weight while eating it. You will feel like you are cheating, but you aren’t.”
In addition to Kakato sweetener, a natural prebiotic fiber sweetener with 0 grams of sugar, Cenavi is a source of Bacillus probiotics, which is known to create short chain fatty acids (SCFAs) that supercharge the body’s metabolism. It is a great companion for chocolate lovers following any diet plan, including the Silver Fern elevated plan. This is a free 7-step plan for boosting weight loss with the use of probiotics, high fiber, and low carbohydrates, developed in conjunction with microbiologist Kiran Krishnan.
Cenavi’s 70 percent dark chocolates are available now at silverfernbrand.com or amazon.com. Milk chocolates, and other products, will be available in 2017.

NFL stars get in the holiday spirit for Oberto Beef Jerky
SEATTLE — All-Pro NFL players Rob Gronkowski and Richard Sherman are teaming up with Oberto Beef Jerky to launch a social media campaign designed to appeal to jerky-loving consumers.
The players will be hosting an ugly sweater social media contest, which will run online on Oberto’s Facebook page through Dec. 18, in celebration of National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day on Dec. 16.
“For me, I always love seeing the fans in their gear on Sundays and showing their support,” said Richard Sherman. “So it’s awesome that I have the opportunity to now team up with Rob and our Oberto family to help give back through this fun ugly sweater social contest. I can’t wait to see the fans send in their creative, yet ‘ugly’ holiday style!“
To kick-off the contest, Oberto will release a video on their Facebook page of Gronkowski and Sherman, which features them hanging out in a garage talking about their ugly sweaters, all while eating jerky.
To be entered to win, contestants simply need to share a picture of themselves wearing their best ugly sweater in the comments section below the video on Facebook, with the hashtags #ObertoUglySweater and #Sweepstakes. The winners, to be chosen at random, will win the autographed sweaters worn by Gronkowski and Sherman in the video. The video is a part of Oberto’s new digital video series, "Gronk & Sherman Talk about Stuff While Eating Jerky," that launched earlier this summer.
In addition, Oberto will be donating 20% of all sales they receive from their online shop (shop.oberto.com) from now until the end of the year (Dec. 15-31) to the Gronk Nation Youth Foundation and Sherman’s Blanket Coverage Foundation.
