Snack Spotlight: Barnana® Snacks Introduces Organic Plantain Crisps

 

New Salty Snack Satisfies America's Growing Appetite for Plantain Chips

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 24, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Move over potato chips! There's a new plant-based salty snack in our midst that's gaining traction with Americans and it's made from bananas -- more specifically, plantains, a variety of banana that's loved around the world and gaining well-deserved popularity in the U.S.

America's salty snack lovers are broadening their taste preferences, and recent research1 suggests that plantain chips could be the next salty snack sensation. Barnana®, a sustainable snacks company, recently fielded a national consumer survey to gauge mainstream America's knowledge about plantains as it introduces its newest chip, Organic Plantain Crisps. The national survey revealed that while potato chips may still be America's favorite, with 87% of Americans finding them at least somewhat appealing, plantain chips are a contender at 42%, far ahead of kale chips at 27%. Younger adults are even more enthusiastic, with plantain chip appeal jumping to 55% among 18-34 year olds, versus potato chips at 84%.

"Plantains are an incredibly versatile fruit, used in countless ways globally," said Caue Suplicy, Barnana's Founder. "Our new Organic Plantain Crisps are a savory, crispy, layered chip perfect for Americans who love potato chips but seek something new that's made from ingredients that are better for you and better for the planet. If you've ever tasted a tostón (also known as a patacón in Ecuador), a beloved and popular snack in Latin America, you'll be familiar with the unique taste experience in store from our new Crisps."

A common misperception about plantain chips is that they will be sweet because many plantain products on U.S. grocery shelves and served in restaurants use fully-ripe plantains that contain more natural sugar, giving them a sweeter flavor profile. Barnana's plantain chips, including the new Organic Plantain Crisps, are savory because they're made from organic green plantains which are rich in resistant starch that has not yet converted to sugar. They're sliced, gently fried in 100% organic coconut oil, mashed until they're even thinner, then fried again to create a unique, flaky and layered texture.

While taste is still the top driver in snacking choices, nutrition is a factor in plantain chips, according to the survey, as Americans look for better-for-you options. Barnana's Organic Plantain Crisps are made with only whole foods; the Sea Salt flavor is made from organic green plantains, organic coconut oil and sea salt and the Garlic flavor is made with the same three ingredients plus organic garlic. Each variety contains 0 grams of sugar per serving and the crisps are gluten-free, grain-free and Paleo-friendly.

Americans are embracing foods from all around the world and that includes plantains. Barnana's survey found that more than two-thirds of Americans (71%) enjoy trying foods from different cultures. This is especially true for younger Americans as 76% of those 18-34 look to try foods from other cultures, compared to 65% of those 55+. This penchant for expanding food choices helps explain the survey finding that nearly one-quarter (23%) of Americans buy plantains or plantain products at least once per month, with 37% of younger Americans, those 18-34, purchasing them at that frequency.

Barnana's Organic Plantain Crisps will also appeal to the growing number of people, sometimes called planetarians, who eat foods that leave a lighter footprint on the planet; or anyone who is trying to eat more sustainably to help reduce global environmental and social justice problems within the food system. They fit in perfectly with the growing demand for plant-based snacks.

"We work with hundreds of small farmers in Ecuador, many of whom are indigenous people, to grow organic plantains using regenerative farming practices that rebuild and restore soil biodiversity," said Suplicy. "As a Certified B Corporation, it's critical to us that our snacks not only taste great, but that they are produced in a socially-just, environmentally sustainable way."

Barnana's Organic Plantain Crisps in both Sea Salt and Garlic flavors will be launching on National Banana Lovers' Day, August 27, on Amazon and Barnana.com and then will be available at retailers including Whole Foods in mid-September. Suggested retail price is $4.99 for a 4.0-ounce package.

Snack Spotlight: RIND® to Shake up the Snack Aisle with the Launch of Crispy Fruit Chips

 

 

Superfruit Snack Brand Takes a Bite Out of Chips Aisle with Its Newest Twist on a Crunchy Classic

NEW YORK, July 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- It's crunch time!  On the heels of a $6.1 million raise announced last month, RIND Snacks®, makers of functional and sustainable fruit snacks, is giving consumers an exciting, new, and innovative way to enjoy their daily dose of fruit. Expanding outside of the traditional chewy dried fruit category, RIND® is crossing over into the large and fast-growing chips aisle with the launch of crispy, crave-able, thin-cut Fruit Chips in three vibrant and tangy flavors, including Orange, Kiwi, and Apple.

RIND Fruit Chips combine the bright, bold taste and highly nutritious benefits of single-ingredient fruit with the satisfying crunch of a chip. Made with USA-grown, non-GMO fruit, RIND Chips deliver up to three times more fiber, immunity-boosting vitamin C, and less sugar than leading fruit snacks on the market. RIND's Orange and Kiwi Chips boast ~300% & 200% of the recommended daily value of Vit. C per bag, respectively.

"At RIND®, we're all about offering consumers new twists on snacking classics. Potato chips have dominated this aisle for as long as we can remember, and it's time to make room on the shelf for a snack that delivers both flavor AND function. We're excited to 'flip the script' on chips by bringing fiber and immunity-boosting vitamins to a category rarely known for nutrition. Enjoy RIND Chips on their own, dipped in a favorite spread, or elevating your next happy hour on the rim of a glass," said Matt Weiss, Founder & CEO of RIND®

RIND®'s new line furthers the brand's fight against unnecessary food waste by encouraging consumers to 'Keep It Real & Eat The Peel' and embrace the benefits of eating whole fruit, this time in crispy form. By retaining the rind on its products, the company helped divert over 120,000 pounds of edible peels from landfills last year and is on track to significantly exceed this sustainable impact in 2021.

RIND Chips will come in 3oz bags, have an MSRP of $4.99-$5.99 and be available on RINDSnacks.com, Amazon, FreshDirect, Hungryroot and several leading retail accounts later this year.

4505 Meats Launches New Butcher's Snacks

Snack Spotlight: 4505 Meats Launches “First-of-Its-Kind” Chef-Created Sausage Snacks

 

New Butcher's Snacks put meaty, protein-packed goodness back into meat snacks

SAN FRANCISCO, July 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Hello? Is it meat you're looking for? 4505 Meats is thrilled to introduce its new line of premium sausage snacks: 4505 Butcher's Snacks. Crafted with two full ounces of high-quality humanely raised pork and packed with18-24 grams of protein per serving, these keto-certified, paleo-friendly, gluten-free meaty sausage snacks are not your average meat sticks.

Created by a real butcher and sausage expert, Ryan Farr (author of the "The Definitive Guide to Sausage Making" and founder/chef of the popular 4505 Burgers & BBQ restaurant in San Francisco), these butcher-quality sausage snacks live up to their name. More sausage than meat stick, 4505 Butcher's Snacks feature:

More meaty protein: Up to 24g protein per link/serving (more than any meat stick currently in the market). Plus, they're Keto certified, Paleo friendly, and gluten-free.

Higher-quality meat: Going beyond no antibiotics, no added hormones, and no nitrites/nitrates, each link is crafted using humanely raised pork (no other major brand makes this commitment).

Butcher-inspired flavors: Flavors based on real restaurant recipes including the first-ever uncured bacon + cheddar sausage snack.

The multi-billion-dollar meat snack category continues to grow with consumer demand for high-protein, keto friendly meat (versus jerky) snacks at an all-time high. 4505 is on a mission to bring premium meat-based snacks to the market with the launch of Butcher's Snacks - a high-quality, protein-filled sausage snack with restaurant-quality ingredients. "I'm more of a butcher than a businessperson," says Farr, "I knew if 4505 was going to offer a meat snack, it had to be more sausage than stick. Butcher's Snacks are inspired by my favorite recipes and as a big sausage nerd, I am proud to offer these delicious Butcher's Snacks to my fellow meat lovers!"

4505 Butcher's Snacks are available in three authentic, satisfying flavors:

Original Recipe – A snappy take on a Midwest favorite -- the Bratwurst. Made with caraway and thyme - each bite is bursting with flavors you know and love.

Cheddar & Bacon – Studded with chunks of cheddar cheese and uncured bacon, two of your favorite foods have finally been combined in one meaty link. Pinch yourself. This is happening.

Red Hot – A spicy little number that gets its extra kick from paprika, cayenne, coriander and a little yellow mustard. A BBQ joint classic.

4505 Butcher's Snacks are available now on Amazon and at Sprouts Farmers Market. They will be launching nationally in Whole Foods this fall with other major retailer roll-outs to follow. SRP $2.99 per meaty two-ounce link!

About 4505 Meats

The new Tropical Punch and Peach real fruit flavors compliment Sun-Maid’s existing Sour Raisin Snacks, which, made from golden raisins, redefine the traditional fruit snack category – with a promise of real whole fruit, no added sugars or artificial ingredients.

Snack Spotlight: Sun-Maid Adds Tropical Punch And Peach Flavors To Reimagined Raisin Snacks Portfolio

 

The Parent Approved, Kid-Friendly No-Added Sugar Fruity Snacks Hit Shelves This Summer

FRESNO, Calif., May 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- With an ongoing commitment to reimagining the endless possibilities of the whole fruit raisin, Sun-Maid Growers of California is expanding its snacking portfolio with the addition of two new trendy and summertime fruity flavor favorites – Tropical Punch and Peach. The new real fruit flavors compliment Sun-Maid's existing Sour Raisin Snacks, which, made from golden raisins, redefine the traditional fruit snack category – with a promise of real whole fruit, no added sugars or artificial ingredients.

"Traditionally, fruit snacks have been loaded with added sugars, corn syrup and artificial ingredients and it is time real fruit takes center stage," said Chief Imagination Wrangler (President and CEO) Harry Overly. "Our Fruity Raisin Snacks are simply real whole fruit that tastes like a candy, not a gummy fruity snack posing as real fruit. By adding in these delicious new flavors, we're delighted to offer fans the choice between a sourer punch or sweeter fruity taste – just in time for summer."

With Sun-Maid's line of whole fruit snacks, Non-GMO means they've only reimagined not reengineered the raisin – as Sun-Maid continues to explore once thought of imaginary flavors of what the raisin could be and bring them to market.

The two new flavors are on the naturally sweeter side compared to the existing Sour Raisin Snacks that are also gluten-free and contain no added sugar or artificial ingredients. Sun-Maid's Fruity Raisin Snacks portfolio has been designed as a better-for-you snack option that tastes like candy for parents in search of healthier and whole fruit snacks for their children.

Sun-Maid's new Tropical Punch and Peach Fruity Raisin Snacks will be available at Albertsons and Kroger for $3.29 or online via Amazon.

For those that prefer a pucker of sour fruity taste, Sun-Maid offers four sour flavors, including Strawberry, Watermelon, Mixed Berry and Blue Raspberry. The product is found nationwide in the dried fruit aisle or online via Amazon.
