They come as the Company's second offering in the plant-based, high protein snack category.

Additionally, i won! organics has plans to launch in Huckleberry's (Washington), H.E.B. (Texas), and Wegmans' (north-east US) by April 2017.

"We want nothing more than to have our snacks in the kitchen cabinets of every consumer around the globe," said Samuel.

In addition to feeling good about making a healthy snacking choice, consumers can also feel great about the fact that i won! organics donates a percentage of profits back to youth organizations and local communities.

The new Protein Cracker will be available at booth 8065.

Food News: PEEPS® Brand Teams Up With Katie Lee to Debut PEEPS® Delights™ at South Beach Wine & Food Festival



Iconic Marshmallow Candy Brand Attends Food Festival for the First Time Ever to Introduce New, Indulgent Product Line


BETHLEHEM, Pa., Feb. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Just Born Quality Confections, the makers of the iconic candy brand PEEPS®, is debuting its newest and most indulgent product line at this year's South Beach Wine & Food Festival with the help of Food Network culinary personality, Katie Lee. To gain excitement for the new product line, PEEPS® teamed up with Katie Lee to create unique recipes featuring the new PEEPS® Delights™ to showcase and sample at the food festival.

PEEPS® Delights™ is a new line of delicious flavored marshmallow Chicks dipped in chocolate or fudge, providing a decadent taste experience. Delights™ are launching just in time for Easter and come in a range of flavors including, Coconut and Blueberry, both dipped in dark chocolate. For the first time ever, fans can also enjoy PEEPS® Filled Delights™ available only at Target in two flavors: Triple Chocolate and Vanilla Caramel Brownie. These unique and innovative Delights™ have a delicious ribbon of filling inside the Chick and are also decadently dipped in chocolate.

"PEEPS® Delights™ attract a slightly different audience than our core marshmallow product line as these more indulgent PEEPS® are meant as a treat to enjoy, rather than an Easter basket essential or in a craft," said Caitlin Servian, Assistant Brand Manager for PEEPS®. "South Beach Wine & Food Festival will be the perfect venue to debut the product line and allow us to engage with our fans directly."

Katie Lee will serve up her delicious Delights™ recipes to patrons at the food festival, including Coconut Chocolate PEEPS® Delights™ Seven-Layer Cookies. Fans will also get the chance to pose with the iconic PEEPS® Chick Mascot on the step and repeat.

For the past 20 years, PEEPS® has been named the number one sugar candy at Easter. Thanks to the innovative and creative associates at Just Born Quality Confections, the brand is gaining popularity outside of the Easter season with new products and seasonal flavors. The Delights™ line will expand into other seasons as well, providing indulgent flavor pairings for fall and winter holidays.

Fans who are unable to attend the food festival can check out Katie Lee's delicious recipes inspired by PEEPS® Delights™ by visiting marshmallowpeeps.com.

First Product--A Sheet Mask Collection--Bows Nationwide

NEW YORK, Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Korean beauty destination, Peach & Lily, launches its own skincare brand—Peach & Lily—with a collection of three "must have" sheet masks. Founder, Alicia Yoon launched online retail site Peachandlily.com in 2012 to bring premium Korean beauty products to U.S. consumers. Alicia has also been tapped to curate special Korean beauty collections for many U.S. retailers, including Macy's, Sephora, QVC, Anthropologie, and Target.

The Peach & Lily Sheet Masks are created with a silky cellulose material derived from cottonseed fibers so they are comfortable, breathable, lightweight and thin.  The material provides each mask with a high absorption level so it can hold and deliver active ingredients effectively. The masks are formulated without many of the irritating ingredients typically found in beauty products, such as synthetic fragrances and dye, alcohol, parabens, sulfates. The masks are sold individually for $6 or as a set of 3 for $15.

Peach & Lily's inaugural product introduction bows this week at 50 Macy's stores nationwide and on Macys.com, as well as on Peachandlily.com. Yoon and Macy's first partnered last year to open Peach & Lily shop-in-shops at 2 Macy's locations, one in Flushing, New York and one in Arcadia, CA .

"We are pleased to announce that Macy's will carry the Sheet Mask Collection from Peach & Lily at 50 locations as well as macys.com," said Richard Zappala, Omni Buyer, Impulse Skincare for Macy's.

Skin Care Spotlight: BladeButter™ Introduces New Products



TRINITY, Fla., Oct. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Building on the success of its flagship product, RazorBooster, BladeButter™ (http://www.bladebutterbrand.com/) announces the launch of two new offerings: ShaveJelly and DragonsEdge. According to founder and owner Matt Green, BladeButter™ is quickly growing into a one-stop shop everything shaving.

ShaveJelly is a safer, gentler alternative to typical shaving creams and gels, while DragonsEdge is a line of 4- and 6-blade razors that are built with quality and durability in mind. Moreover, BladeButter™ continues to make its products more affordable than the elite brands with their Madison Avenue marketing campaigns.

"Say goodbye to harmful, poor quality shaving creams and say hello to ShaveJelly," says Green, "a superior product in every way. ShaveJelly incorporates the same nano-filtration technology that makes RazorBooster so exceptional. The non-greasy and non-foaming formula is nearly 90% organic, whereas most off-the-shelf shaving creams are full of harsh chemicals. ShaveJelly rinses clean and leaves skin smooth. It's great for sensitive skin, as it contains skin-repairing ingredients like great tea and vitamin E."

Complementing both RazorBooster and ShaveJelly, DragonsEdge razors are designed to outperform the expensive name brands, and they don't require a subscription. The ergonomic handle features a 90-degree pivoting head, which ensures the blades ride every facial contour perfectly. Nano-honed blades provide top-shelf quality and durability, while the open channel design makes quick work of rinsing the blades after every shave.

As with many innovations, BladeButter™'s RazorBooster micro lubricant didn't start out as a shaving product. Instead, Green was working on a solution to a protein bar wrapper problem when he developed a unique oil using a forced-filtration technique. While this oil didn't fix the wrapper issue, he knew instinctively that it was a solution to something. That "something" revealed itself when he ran out of shaving gel and decided to soak his razor in the oil as an experiment. The resulting close, clean shave was the first official use of RazorBooster.

BladeButter™ has been building momentum since going live in late 2012. The company has nurtured a loyal customer base thanks to its combination of personalized service and superior products. Every purchase is backed by a 100% money back guarantee.

In the media, BladeButter™ has earned more than a little buzz. The brand has been featured in Thrillist, The Gloss, the Tampa Tribune, the Wall Street Journal and MarketWatch. Most impressively, RazorBooster from BladeButter™ appeared on a Good Housekeeping list of top 5 gifts for dad. "There we were at #3 alongside international brands like Panasonic, Aveeno, American Crew and CeraVe," says Green. "The launch of ShaveJelly and DragonsEdge will help us capitalize on our success and take even better care of our customers."

About BladeButter

Launched in 2012, BladeButter™ is an online business specializing in shaving products that are safe, innovative and affordable.

Industry News: Heinz Partners with Top Pitmasters to Launch Five New Great-Tasting BBQ Sauces



PITTSBURGH, Pa. & CHICAGO, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--After a successful launch into yellow mustard last year, Heinz is once again heating up the grilling season by launching into another new category: BBQ! Heinz just released five new, great-tasting BBQ sauces, created in partnership with five of America’s top pitmasters. Heinz BBQ sauces are a collection of authentic regional sauces that taste even better than they look. Heinz worked with five Pitmaster Partners and used only 100% natural, locally-inspired ingredients and recipes to craft each delicious BBQ sauce - Kansas City Sweet & Smoky, Memphis Sweet & Spicy, Texas Bold & Spicy, Carolina Tangy Vinegar, and Heinz Classic Sweet & Thick – each with flavor as distinct as the regional barbecue taste it represents.

The launch of Heinz’s new BBQ Sauces is supported by a new campaign, “Pitmasters, not Spokespeople,” which features the Heinz Pitmaster Partners: Joe and Mike Pearce (Kansas City), Dan Brown (Memphis), Robert Sierra (Texas) and Sam Jones (Carolina). As part of the campaign, the TV commercial showcases the delicious new BBQ sauces alongside the real pitmasters who partnered with Heinz on each of them. In a funny, blooper-reel style spot, we see that while these pitmasters are masters at perfecting delicious-tasting, authentic BBQ sauces, they may not be masters of being traditional “spokespeople.” Heinz tapped DAVID Miami for the campaign. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4S2ikMRT5xc&feature=youtu.be)

“As interest in BBQ continues to grow across the country, people are becoming more aware that different regions have different styles of sauce, but we know that a lot of consumers are reluctant to try a sauce from a brand they don’t know and trust,” said Jessica Ryan, Director of Marketing at The Kraft Heinz Company. “Our new line of BBQ sauces will make it easier for people to explore these flavors, because they combine the BBQ expertise and passion of top pitmasters with the trust and experience of Heinz.”

New Heinz BBQ Sauces include:

Kansas City Style Sweet & Smoky BBQ Sauce: Rooted in generations of barbeque tradition, great Kansas City style barbeque is a perfect balance of thick, sweet and tangy. Heinz teamed up with Kansas City natives and award-winning Pitmasters, Joe and Mike Pearce, to craft a Kansas City style sauce that is a mouthwatering blend of that sweet and smoky deliciousness that the region is known for.

Memphis Style Sweet & Spicy BBQ Sauce: From the birthplace of Rock ‘n Roll, the tradition of Memphis barbeque is rich and sweet with a pop of spice. To create a truly great Memphis style barbeque sauce, Heinz teamed up with Dan Brown of Memphis’ own Leonard’s PIT Barbeque — a barbeque institution since 1922. With sweet brown sugar and the flavors of the region’s traditional dry rubs, this is a sweet and spicy sauce that’s sure to be a favorite.

Texas Style Bold & Spicy BBQ Sauce: In Texas, there’s nothing shy about barbeque, and a great Texas style sauce means bold flavors and big personality. That’s why Heinz teamed up with Robert Sierra, Pitmaster of the Texas State Grand Champion S&S Pit Crew competition BBQ team from San Marcos, Texas. This sauce captures the very best of Texas barbeque — combining spices like cumin and chili powder for a sauce that’s bold and flavorful with just the right kick.

Carolina Vinegar Style Tangy BBQ Sauce: Real Carolina barbeque is all about the deep-rooted traditions of whole-hog barbeque slow cooked over wood coals. Heinz teamed up with third-generation pitmaster Sam Jones, of the legendary Skylight Inn BBQ in Ayden, North Carolina to craft a true Carolina style sauce that blends the distinctive tang of apple cider with the just right bit of sweet and spice to make it the perfect addition to your favorite pulled pork.

Classic Sweet & Thick BBQ Sauce: The traditions of barbeque in America run deep - and a great sauce can make all the difference. That’s why the Heinz Barbeque team has traveled the country and done our homework with some of the nation’s top Pitmasters to bring you a sauce that captures the real flavors of American barbeque. This sauce is a true classic -sweet, thick, deliciously balanced, 100% natural, and sure to please!

All five of the New Heinz BBQ sauces come in Heinz’s iconic, upside-down squeezable bottle and are available at major retailers nationwide in 20oz bottles with a suggested retail price of $2.49. Heinz also offers a “Pitmaster Collection” Sampler 4-Pack that features 11oz sampler bottles of the Kansas City, Memphis, Texas and Carolina sauces.
