San Leandro, Calif. (April 29, 2015) – The Ghirardelli Chocolate Company, maker of premium chocolate products, today announced the launch of Ghirardelli Chocolate and Caramel Sauces as well as new Brownie flavored SQUARES and Bars.

In addition to topping ice cream sundaes and elevating the milkshake, The Premium Sauces can be used in a range of desserts as well as for hot chocolate, lattes and other coffee beverages, and even an indulgent chocolate martini. The Premium Sauces feature a no-mess, non-drip cap, an easy-to-squeeze bottle that lets users control the amount of sauce delivered and can be stored either right side up or upside down.
