General FAQ

 

What does SkinnyDipped mean? 

SkinnyDipped refers to the way our almonds, cashews and peanuts are dipped in a super thin layer of chocolate or yogurt; the nuts and coating are balanced in the most delicious (and healthy) way possible. You get more nut than chocolate in every bite – which means way less sugar than traditional chocolate-covered snacks. 

 

Are they Vegan? Gluten Free? Kosher? 

All SkinnyDipped products are gluten free and kosher. Our Super Dark + Sea Salt almonds are vegan-friendly. 

 

I see palm oil is used in a few of your nut products – isn’t that environmentally unfriendly? 

We use rainforest safe, RSPO-certified palm oil in our Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter and Lemon Bliss Almonds and Peanut & Jelly Peanuts. Along with making sure that the palm oil production is environmentally sustainable, being RSPO certified also protects the rights of palm oil farmers, and the communities they support. For more information on the RSPO certification, please see the link here. We are also always working to evolve our ingredients deck to make sure we’re maintaining our mind-blowing deliciousness while also continuing to treat the planet with care. 

 

Where is your chocolate sourced from? What about your nuts? 

Our chocolate is made from superior shade-grown cacao sourced from around the world for quality and sustainability. Our almonds are grown in California, and our peanuts come from family farms in Virginia. Our cashews come from Vietnam since cashews are not grown domestically.  

 

Is SkinnyDipped organic?  

We are not organic, but we do use certain organic ingredients including organic maple sugar and organic white chocolate. 

 

What happens if my order arrives melted? 

We’re real food with no preservatives (awesome), but that means we can melt in the warmer months (less awesome). From May to October, we do our best to prevent this by shipping with cold packs and insulation, but sometimes the weather gets the best of us. If your order arrives melted, message us at hello@skinnydipped.com and we’d be happy to send a replacement. Also, if your product melts, all is not lost. Press it flat, pop it in the freezer for 15 minutes and viola – SkinnyDipped bark (the most delicious whoops of your life).

 

SkinnyDipped Cups FAQ

 

SkinnyDipped has always promised more nuts than chocolate – is this true for your peanut butter cups? 

Great question! We use real peanut butter (from ground peanuts), and there is a ton of it! Our cups have more peanut butter than other peanut butter cups, nestled in a thinner chocolate shell. 

 

Do you use artificial sweeteners in in your cups? 

Nope! We never use artificial sweeteners, colors of flavors. Our cups are sweetened with a clean, delicious blend of maple sugar, cane sugar and allulose. 

 

What is allulose?  

Allulose is a sugar that is naturally low in calories (90% fewer calories than cane sugar). It tastes like cane sugar but doesn’t metabolize like it in your body. It is found in nature in corn as well as raisins and figs.  

 

Why did you use allulose? Why not stevia or sugar alcohols? 

Incorporating allulose allowed us to crack the code on creating lower sugar peanut butter cups and chocolate bars that taste amazing without any unpleasant after-effects of sugar substitutes. Stevia leaves an unpleasant, bitter aftertaste, which would undermine the deliciousness of our product. Sugar alcohols like erythritol can cause stomach upsets and impact gut health. In contrast, allulose tastes just like cane sugar and there is no evidence that it has any negative impact on gut health. 

 

SkinnyDipped Bars FAQ

 

SkinnyDipped has always promised more nuts than chocolate – how does this work for your chocolate bars?  

Great question! Although our bars are more chocolate-forward than our nuts, we still have way more nuts than the other guys! Our Dark Chocolate Almond Sea Salt bar contains more than double the nuts of other almond chocolate bars (and they’re bigger pieces!). Our Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel bar doesn’t contain nuts, but it does have loads of gooey, buttery delicious caramel.  

 

Do you use artificial sweeteners in in your bars? 

Nope! We never use artificial sweeteners, colors of flavors. Our bars are sweetened with a clean, delicious blend of maple sugar, cane sugar and allulose. 

 

What is allulose?  

Allulose is a sugar that is naturally low in calories (90% fewer calories than cane sugar). It tastes like cane sugar but doesn’t metabolize like it in your body. It is found in nature in corn as well as raisins and figs.

Your bars are amazing – will you be launching other flavors? 

Thanks for the compliment! And yes, we are always innovating and are working on several new bar flavors – stay tuned!
