Allergy-friendly baked goods brand Mikey’s has expanded its portfolio of hand-held pockets with the introduction of two new variants.
Mikey’s Buffalo-Style Chicken Pockets and Cauliflower & Broccoli Cheddar Pockets, which have been launched to coincide with May Celiac Awareness Month, are free from gluten, dairy, grains and soy.
The two new varieties join the brand’s Pizza Pockets range, alongside existing Cheese Pizza, Pepperoni Pizza and Ham & Cheese variants.
Mikey’s says its new hand-held pockets, which are sold in packs of two, provide a convenient option for lunch, dinner and ‘in-between snacking’.
Founded in 2014 by chef Michael Tierney, the brand’s portfolio also encompasses English muffins, tortillas, egg pockets and pizza crust. All of Mikey’s products are Certified Paleo and non-GMO, as well as being free from common allergens.
Mikey’s founder and CEO Tierney said: “Like most kids, I loved to eat pockets. Then, while training as a chef, I learnt about the questionable ingredients found in most gluten-free and frozen meals and thought that there must be a healthier option to one of my childhood favourites.
“After coming up short on my search, I was determined to recreate a better pocket – this time with high quality ingredients and without any gluten, dairy, grain or soy.”
Mikey’s Pockets are available in the US, for an RRP of $5.99, from Sprouts Farmers Market and other retailers and grocery stores.
