Food Spotlight: Applegate Farms, LLC Introduces the DO GOOD DOG™ Hot Dog


The DO GOOD DOG™ hot dog furthers the company's mission to produce meat in ways that are good for people, animals and the planet

BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Nov. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Applegate Farms, LLC, the nation's leading natural and organic meat brand, today announced the launch of the DO GOOD DOG™ hot dog, the first nationally available hot dog made with beef raised on verified regenerative U.S. grasslands. Beef for the DO GOOD DOG™ hot dog comes from SunFed Ranch® in Northern California and boasts the Savory Institute's Land to Market Seal, the world's first regenerative sourcing verification.

The DO GOOD DOG™ hot dog is Applegate's latest evolution of the humble hot dog and is an essential part of driving forward the company's mission: Changing The Meat We Eat®Applegate reimagined the hot dog more than 15 years ago with APPLEGATE ORGANICS ® THE GREAT ORGANIC HOT DOG™ hot dog, made with just four simple ingredients, 100% grass-fed beef, water, salt and spices.  With the introduction of the DO GOOD DOG™ hot dog, the company has bold ambitions to take regenerative agriculture from niche to norm.

Until now, regeneratively sourced beef has mostly been available at farmers markets or high-end restaurants. Applegate's size and experience scaling specialized supply chains in the meat category aims to make regenerative agriculture familiar and accessible in the mass market. According to the Savory Institute, the cattle that supply the beef for the DO GOOD DOG™ hot dog are part of a system that is contributing to the regeneration of up to 260,000 acres of U.S. grasslands, making it one of the largest verified systems for regeneratively-sourced beef.

"It's fashionable to argue that the only way to fight climate change is to eliminate meat. In fact, the opposite is true," said John Ghingo, President of Applegate. "Animals have a vital role to play in restoring soil health, sequestering carbon and safeguarding the land against drought, wildfires, erosion and other devastating results of climate change. Our mission is to scale regenerative practices beyond small farms and niche markets. It's the only way to make a big enough impact."

With two out of three U.S. adults saying they eat meat frequently1 and cattle consistently spotlighted for their negative impact on the environment, there's a need to shift the way meat is produced to both meet demand and improve the planet. Applegate is starting with beef, where the evidence of positive animal impact is most clear, but the company is also at work to develop evidence-based regenerative practices for non-grazing animals and plans to grow its regeneratively-sourced product line to pork and poultry.

Applegate's commitment to support and market regeneratively sourced beef has helped SunFed Ranch double its grass fed cattle production, according to Matt Byrne, co-founder of SunFed Ranch, diverting cattle out of the commodity feedlot system and accelerating environmental benefits to its ranchlands. SunFed Ranch, which manages more than 1.5 million acres of U.S. grasslands both directly and through its ranching partners, is committed, across all on-ranch operations, to being 100% carbon neutral, from production to product, by 2024 and fully carbon negative by the end of 2027.

"We are thrilled to join Applegate in taking a leadership position to make regenerative, 100% grass fed beef that is better for the planet and healthier for families more widely available," said Byrne. "Applegate's commitment accelerates our shared mission to move the beef industry away from the commodity, corn-based feedlot system as we continue to scale one of the largest pastured cattle ranching environments in the country.  We're proud to partner with Applegate on this innovative product and facilitate the regeneration of the land we are fortunate enough to have in our care."

Applegate's contribution to regenerating U.S. grasslands and healthy soil is being measured by the Savory Institute, a pioneer in regenerative agriculture. Baseline measurements of soil health, biodiversity, water retention and other ecosystem services were taken in Spring 2021 and will be revisited annually to assess progress. This is a hallmark of the Land to Market seal, which does not set standards, but measures outcomes, ensuring that a ranch is making continuous improvements to the land.

"While Land to Market verifies outcomes rather than practices, we find that those that implement Holistic Management and planned grazing double their likelihood of improving land health. We are big believers in the old adage that what gets measured gets managed and that measurement is actually a function of optimization," said Chris Kerston, chief commercial officer of the Land to Market Program at the Savory Institute. "By working closely with SunFed Ranch and Applegate, we can quantify environmental improvement and the ranchers can optimize their management to maximize those results ongoingly. This approach has the adaptability and scalability to drive the entire global meat industry forward."

The new DO GOOD DOG™ hot dog is available now at select major retailers and on Amazon with an SRP of $6.99. It is gluten free, a good source of protein2 and contains no added sugar.

Kimbala's iconic chai is made with the same small-batch method that Indian chai brewers have used for centuries. Kimbala Ready-to-Drink Chai features a perfectly balanced blend of - masalas (spices), tea, sugar, milk - and has a rich milk texture that's free of any preservatives, artificial ingredients, or stabilizers.

"Kimbala is the first product we've seen that truly captures the essence of the chai drinks we grew up within India," said Keval Raj and Hanish Pahwa, Quicklly co-founders. "Kimbala's harmonious blends create a delightful and refreshingly desi chai that's perfect for breakfast, before dinner, or on the go. We're thrilled to be one of the first to introduce this authentically Indian beverage to Quicklly's consumers."

In addition to its line of Ready-to-Drink Chai beverages, Kimbala's Chai Concentrates and Ready-to-Drink Coffees provide options for those looking for delicious alternatives to traditional chai drinks. Both variants are made with simple ingredients and feature jaggery, an unrefined natural sweetener popular in India.

The treat provides additional snacking options for those shopping the perimeter like the produce and dairy sections of the store. Nestlé Rallies Nut Butter Bombs are now available in two delicious flavors, Brownie Almond Butter and Salted Cashew Butter, with a third, Raspberry Peanut Butter, to be released in early 2022:

Food Spotlight: Enlightened Launches Line of Ready-to-Bake Cookies with 0g of Sugar


With the first low-carb cookies, Enlightened takes the better-for-you category to new heights

NEW YORK, Oct. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Enlightened, the feel-good dessert brand, announces the frozen aisle's new collection of sugar-free ready-to-bake cookies. This innovation furthers Enlightened's mission of cutting sugar out of the great-tasting treats we know and love.

For the first time, low-carb dessert lovers can enjoy hot, oven-fresh cookies that are made with zero grams of added sugar and just two grams of net carbs per cookie. A traditional ready-to-bake cookie can have up to 15g of added sugar per serving.

"There are few things better than a warm and gooey cookie straight out of the oven," Enlightened founder and CEO Michael Shoretz said. "Until now, we've had to decide between having a cookie loaded with sugar or compromise taste and texture for a 'healthier' alternative. With these cookies, there is no compromise. They are soft and chewy, taste incredible and just happen to have no sugar added."

The new collection of Ready-to-Bake Cookies is available in three flavors, Chocolate Chip, P.B. Chocolate Chunk and Double Chocolate, all packed with a key ingredient: chocolate chunks. Each keto-friendly flavor bakes in under 15 minutes.

Enlightened utilizes high-quality ingredients, including allulose--a low-calorie rare sugar--and Bay State Milling Company's HealthSense, a high-fiber wheat flour, to achieve the perfect texture, taste and nutrition in its cookies. This high-fiber flour, also featured in Enlightened's Sugar-Free Cones, delivers up to 10 times the amount of dietary fiber of traditional wheat flour while maintaining the taste and performance of traditional refined wheat flour.

"We're thrilled to have the opportunity to collaborate with the team at Enlightened to help create cookies that are deliciously better-for-you with the inclusion of HealthSense high-fiber flour," said Edward Fish, Vice President and General Manager of Varietal Solutions, Bay State Milling Company. "HealthSense helps to address consumers' desire for foods with real health benefits while keeping the same great taste they've come to love from Enlightened's products."

Enlightened's Ready-to-Bake Cookies are packaged 12 to a box (MSRP $8-10). Available now on EatEnlightened.com, they will also appear in select grocery stores, such as Sprouts Farmers Market, Harris Teeter and Lowes Foods, this year.

Bistro Crisps

Snack Spotlight: Crunchmaster® Unveils Bistro Crisps for Guilt-free, Gourmet Snacking


Bistro Crisps Offer More for Less with 63 Crisps Per Serving for Only 120 Calories

LOVES PARK, Ill., Oct. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Crunchmaster announces the newest addition to its fan-favorite product line — Crunchmaster Bistro Crisps, guilt-free gourmet snacks containing only 120 calories in 63 popped crisps. Snacking has been taken to the next level with bite-size Bistro Crisps in three delicious flavors: Vegan Cheddar, Nacho and Margherita Pizza.

Crunchmaster Bistro Crisps are grain-free, paleo, vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO and Kosher. In addition, Bistro Crisps contain no artificial flavors, zero grams of trans fat and zero milligrams of cholesterol. Made with Cassava Root, a gut-friendly root vegetable, Bistro Crisps are popped, not fried, leaving them light, crispy and full of flavor. Bistro Crisps are a gourmet snacking experience, offering one of the largest serving sizes compared with competitive options. Bistro Crisps will be available in Publix stores and on Amazon this fall.

"The Crunchmaster team is continuously looking for our next product innovation to meet our consumers' demand for simple, wholesome snacks, and the pandemic only emphasized their desire for better-for-you snacking options," said Braden Bennie, Senior Marketing Manager at Crunchmaster. "Bistro Crisps bring the best of Crunchmaster crackers — the nutrition, flavor and crispy crunch — to a new realm of snacking."

The COVID-19 pandemic changed how consumers shop, eat and think about food. According to FMCG Gurus, nearly 80 percent of global consumers plan on eating healthier as a result of the pandemic, and research from The Hartman Group shows nearly half of all food and beverage occasions are now snacking occasions, meaning consumers are placing a new focus on snacking as a primary source of nourishment. With the release of Bistro Crisps, Crunchmaster offers a delicious source of daily sustenance that meets consumers' high standards and complex dietary needs.

Better Oil = Better Crackers

New packaging. Same crunch. Now made with Olive Oil.

This fall, Crunchmaster also announces that Olive Oil will replace Safflower Oil in most of its Crunchmaster cracker products, including its Multi-Seed, Multi-Grain, Grain-Free and Multi-Grain 5 Seed products.

"It's becoming increasingly important for our products to contain ingredients that our consumers recognize as a healthy choice," Bennie said. "This optimization to our existing product line gives consumers another reason to feel confident choosing Crunchmaster crackers."

Crunchmaster listened to its consumers by switching to a more premium oil that customers prefer. Experts have long agreed that Olive Oil is one of the healthiest oils to incorporate into your diet, and consumers reported being 2.7 times more likely to purchase Crunchmaster crackers made with Olive Oil.

Crunchmaster also recently revealed a refreshed packaging design that allows customers to find their favorite crackers more easily on store shelves. Updates to both the product recipe and packaging doesn't change the customer experience — Crunchmaster fans can expect the same great taste and crunch they've grown to love.

About the Company
An Impossible Snack Made Possible Through Relentless Hustle and Never-Give-Up Attitude

Wilde Brands could only ever have a wild founder, enter Jason Wright. He fell in love with chips early in his childhood, with a household mantra of “an open bag is an empty bag”. When he realized his favorite snack would not support his quest for a stronger and active lifestyle, he turned to making his own snacks, but nothing gave him the satisfaction like a good old fashioned potato chip. Thanks to his entrepreneurial spirit and never-give-up attitude, Jason’s bold idea starts to take shape in his boulder, CO kitchen: replace the potato with protein using “chicken breast ''.

Naming it would be easy. Wilde Chips. Jason makes his first trial batch using recycled potato chip equipment, and two years later he finally nails it - reinventing his favorite snack “potato chips'' forever.

“I hope Wilde inspires you to live life a li'l Wilder each day. Stay Wilde”
