Giving consumers a taste of a brand not previously offered at 7-Eleven, shoppers will now be to able to try ProSticks’ variety of chicken skewers at an SRP of $2.99 for each 115 g package.
“It’s exciting to begin each new partnership,” shared Michael Delli Colli, Marketing Manager at Expresco Foods. “7-Eleven is a leader in the convenience market world, and we know our products are in good hands. High-protein convenience store shoppers are actively looking for ways to bring functionality to their on-the-go snacks, and with 21 grams of protein, ProSticks are the perfect way to do so. Nothing else quite comes close.”
The snack food industry is growing at a double-digit rate, and the trend is expected to continue – with protein being the most sought after ingredient. Snacks packed with protein offer a wide range of benefits aimed at fueling the everyday active lifestyle.
