Food Spotlight: Borden® Cheese Unveils Protein-Packed Snack Bar Line Just in Time for Fall



National Survey Unveils 65 Percent of Parents Believe Nutritious Snacks a Necessity for Lunchtime Success

CHICAGO, Sept. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- With kids across the country back in school, families are easing into fall schedules and reestablishing back to school routines, which means parents are back on lunch packing duty. According to a recent survey conducted by Borden® Cheese, two out of three parents pack lunches for their kids, and more than 65 percent of these parents believe nutritious snacks are a must-have lunch box item.

Just in time for back to school, Borden® Cheese announces an all-new line of snack bars, packed with everything a student needs to take on the school year. Available in popular flavors of Mild Cheddar, Colby Jack, Pepper Jack and Gouda, these convenient, easy-to-open snack bars make it easy to create a protein-packed lunch.

"Combining convenience and nutrition, Borden® Cheese Snack Bars make packing a healthy lunch your child will actually eat easier," said Flavia Panza, Senior Director of Marketing, Dairy Farmers of America. "Because Borden® Cheese believes good snacks should be good for you, each Borden® Cheese Snack Bar packs 5g of protein at only 80 calories or less per serving."

The survey also found that 50 percent of parents identify time and convenience as the primary challenges to offering healthy, nutritious lunches and after-school snacks for their children. Luckily, each individually-wrapped Borden® Cheese Snack Bar contains five grams of protein and is a good source of calcium, making them full of wholesome goodness that parents can feel good about. Sold in resealable packs of 10, these new snack bars are perfect for lunches and snacking.

The entire line of Borden® Cheese products, including snack-time-ready string cheese, chunks and the all-new snack bars, is available at major grocery stores and independent retailers across the country.

About Borden® Cheese: Borden® Cheese is licensed by Dairy Farmers of America (DFA), a cooperative of dairy farmers who share the belief that before cheese can be great, it has to be good. DFA's members, which represent 8,000 family dairy farms across the United States, work hard to make a cheese that truly belongs on American dinner tables. That means ensuring that love is always an ingredient in every delicious ounce of Borden® Cheese.

Food Spotlight: Cole’s Quality Foods Introduces Innovative Stuffed Bread Snack Called Middles™,



GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Sept. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading frozen bread manufacturer and the original inventor of frozen garlic bread, Cole's Quality Foods, Inc., innovates the frozen food category yet again with the introduction of Middles™, a stuffed bread that combines delicious, decadent, savory, salty and sweet flavors into one revolutionary snack concept.

Experience the interactive Multichannel News Release here: https://www.multivu.com/players/English/8139251-coles-frozen-bread-middles/

Middles become available later this month in the freezer section at grocery, club, supermarket and convenience stores nationwide for a suggested retail price of $3.99 per 10.8-ounce box.  Each box contains eight tasty bread bites.

Inspired by the much-celebrated combination of bread and cheese, Middles advances the concept by featuring the soft "middle" section of popular bakery staples, including bagel, Italian and pretzel breads. They are then stuffed with savory and sweet centers, including cheddar cheese, cream cheese, and beer cheese varieties. The result is an outrageously delicious heat-and-serve stuffed bread snack that can be made in either microwave or conventional ovens in just seven to nine minutes.

Middles (www.tastymiddles.com) are available in six different varieties, including:

  • Plain Bread stuffed with 5 Cheese
  • Plain Bread stuffed with Mac And Cheese
  • Plain Bread stuffed with Plain Cream Cheese
  • French Toast Bagel stuffed with Sweet Cream Cheese
  • Everything Bagel stuffed with Plain Cream Cheese
  • Pretzel Bread stuffed with Beer Cheese

"We are bakers at our core, but food innovators at heart," said Bruce Kratt, President of Cole's Quality Foods, Inc. "Applying nearly 75 years of bakery experience, we developed what is ultimately a trendsetting snack concept. The Middles themselves are exceptional, but so too is the packaging and the way we're bringing them to market with character animations and a true sense of personality.  It's fun, it's different and we believe Middles will be a remarkable snacking experience for consumers of all ages to enjoy."

About Cole's Quality Foods
Tasteful since 1943, Cole's Quality Foods is a leader and innovator of frozen bakery products. In 1972, Cole's invented the first frozen garlic bread.

MINERVA, OH (January 11, 2017) – Minerva Dairy, America's oldest family-owned cheese and butter dairy, is proud to announce the launch of a new addition to their line of flavor-infused butters. The line currently features Minerva Dairy’s acclaimed Amish Roll Butter in such varieties as Smoked Maplewood, Garlic Herb, Seasonal Pumpkin Spice and Maple Syrup at an SRP of $6.99 for 8 oz. The latest to be added to this collection is the brand’s Cinnamon Honey Amish Roll butter.

Crowdfunding Spotlight: Mac & Son – Mac & Cheese made better




Mac & Son is a store-bought Mac & Cheese that rivals homemade. We use an authentic Mac & Cheese recipe with a béchamel (white sauce) base. Just, add your own milk, butter & heat to make a rich, creamy sauce – just like homemade. No cornstarch. No artificial thickeners. No oil-based products. We use better cheese, a better sauce with a real roux & better ridged pasta . We even include a crouton-crumble topping to add a pleasant crunch.

Mac & Son is Mac & Cheese made better.



I came-up with the idea for Mac & Son while I was making a typical store-bought Mac & Cheese for my young son.

I looked at what I was making and asked myself…

Why does Mac & Cheese from a package look & taste so much less appealing than the Mac & Cheese I can make from scratch or order from restaurant?

After looking at the ingredients list & doing a little research, the answer was apparent…there’s no recipe. There's nothing in the mix that will create a proper sauce. It’s just a box of industrial ingredients, no matter what brand you use.

Our approach is different. We start with an authentic recipe for great Mac & Cheese and found a way to make it easy to store & prepare at home.



We are starting with three deluxe flavors:

  • Classic Cheddar with Sea-Salt & Butter Crouton Topping
  • Parmesan Cream with Sea-Salt & Butter Crouton Topping
  • White Cheddar with Sea-Salt & Butter Crouton Topping



In the near future we are looking at adding a variety of other chef inspired flavors like:

  • Swiss & Mushroom with Garlic & Butter Crouton Topping
  • Cheddar, Onion & Bacon with Sea-Salt & Butter Crouton Topping
  • Swiss & French Onion with Garlic & Butter Crouton Topping
  • And more…

If you’d like to experience a better Mac & Cheese – please pledge for Mac & Son and we’ll happily send you a sample of what we can do. The money you pledge will help us scale-up our production with a more automated packaging system.

Thanks for your support
Chris McMurray
Mac & Son


Risks and challenges

Our main focus for improvement is production scale. We are already producing small batches out of a well equipped commercial startup kitchen in Brooklyn. We have finished our recipe & secured access to top quality ingredients suppliers. We also have commitments to sell from some great retailers in New York, including a few notable cheese stores.

Food News: Farm Rich Introduces Cheddar Cheese Curds For National Cheese Curd Day Oct. 15



ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga., Oct. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Just in time for National Cheese Curd Day on Oct. 15, Farm Rich, one of the nation's best-selling snacks and appetizers brands, has added a popular new snack to its lineup: Breaded Cheddar Cheese Curds, available in grocery stores this fall.

The new Cheddar Cheese Curds are made with 100 percent, authentic Wisconsin Cheese Curds sourced from the award-winning LaGrander's Hillside Dairy of Wisconsin. Breaded to a light, crispy golden perfection, the product is literally bursting with the mild, salty, fresh goodness of real Wisconsin Curds and has the official "Wisconsin Cheese" seal of approval by the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board.


Farm Rich Cheddar Cheese Curds are available in supermarkets primarily in the Midwest and Southeast, with plans for nationwide expansion later this fall and next year. Priced between $4.99-6.99 for a 16-oz. carton (prices vary by store), the Curds can be found in the freezer section and prepared at home in a conventional oven, toaster oven or deep fryer in under 10 minutes.

"Wisconsin Cheese Curds have had a following of passionate fans for generations, and the love for cheese curds has been spreading far beyond America's Dairyland," said Shannon Gilreath, Farm Rich Director of Marketing. "We've seen rapid growth in the number of restaurants adding cheese curds to their menus. Since Farm Rich is widely known for our restaurant quality appetizers, we wanted to capitalize on the Cheese Curds popularity by introducing them at retail and giving consumers the best-tasting, best-quality authentic Cheese Curd experience available in grocery."

'Golden' Facts about Cheese Curds

  • America's Dairyland wins more awards for its famous Wisconsin Cheese Curds than any other state.*
  • Cheese curds are essential to the cheesemaking process. Before cheeses are formed into blocks or wheels and aged, they start out as curds.
  • Fresh cheese curds have a mild, salty flavor and squeak when eaten – the ultimate sign of freshness!
  • National Cheese Curd Day is celebrated annually on October 15.

Industry News: Muuna™ Disrupts Dairy Aisle With New, Innovative Cottage Cheese Portfolio



NEW YORK, Aug. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Muuna™, a new, innovative food company on a mission to change the way consumers think about cottage cheese, today announced a line of products featuring unique, beautifully bright, single-serve cups available in six varieties, including Strawberry, Blueberry, Pineapple, Peach, Mango and Lowfat Plain. The company is also launching two multi-serve items—Lowfat Plain and Classic Plain. So say goodbye to boring and hello to the irresistibly craveable, melt-in-your-mouth, creamy taste of Muuna cottage cheese paired with premium, real pieces of fruit. Protein seekers can also rejoice, as all Muuna products are high in protein.

Muuna's premium fruit-on-the-bottom flavors each have 130 calories, 9-11g sugar and 15g protein per 5.3oz container. Muuna's Lowfat Plain has 120 calories, 4g sugar and 19g protein per 5.3oz container. All Muuna products contain no high fructose corn syrup or stevia and are free of artificial flavors, colors and sweeteners. Muuna is also gluten-free and certified Kosher. Visit muuna.com for specific nutrition and ingredient information.

Gerard Meyer, CEO of Muuna, said, "Cottage cheese has been around forever, and mainly thought of as a diet food. The same was true for yogurt, but yogurt innovated while cottage cheese remained stuck in the past. At Muuna, we decided to reimagine cottage cheese, inside and out, down to our unique, beautiful cup.  Today's consumers want good food that tastes delicious, but cottage cheese has developed a reputation as boring and bland. So we spent years creating a proprietary recipe that delivers a melt-in-your-mouth, creamy cottage cheese combined with premium, real pieces of fruit, which will surprise and delight your taste buds. What's more, protein-seekers will be delighted to know that Muuna is high in protein. We invite consumers to compare Muuna to their favorite cottage cheese or their favorite Greek yogurt, because if you like those, you'll love Muuna."

Muuna cottage cheese is available in 5.3 oz. ($1.69 MSRP) single-serve cups and 16 oz. ($3.49 MSRP) multi-serve containers. Expect to see Muuna on the shelves of select Northeast retailers, including ShopRite and Shaw's, this week.
