American food group Snyder’s-Lance has launched a series of new products across a range of its brands that will meet consumer demand for on-the-go, better-for-you and premium snack foods.
“Snacking has become a new way of life as consumers have less time to sit down for big meals,” said Rod Troni, chief marketing officer for Snyder’s-Lance. “So let’s celebrate snacks. Whether it’s enjoying snacks with friends or during a road trip with the family, we believe these new, quality snacks from Snyder’s-Lance can enhance those moments and make them even better.
“With our recent acquisition of Diamond Foods, our total company will have even more innovation in the future, including new items from Kettle Chips, Kettle Brand, Pop Secret, Emerald, and Diamond of California.”
Snyder’s of Hanover is expanding its line of sweet and salty pretzel pieces to include a new S’mores creation. The new flavour combination celebrates the familiar campfire treat with chocolate and marshmallow flavours on sourdough hard pretzel pieces.
And with Snyder’s of Hanover filled pieces, the longstanding pretzel maker has taken the middle out of its pretzels and packed in real peanut butter, adding 4g of protein to keep consumers going throughout the day.
Snyder’s of Hanover is also introducing 50% reduced-fat pretzel pieces that come in two savoury flavours: zesty ranch and everything.
Gluten-free sandwich cracker maker Lance has developed a new line of certified gluten-free sandwich cookies. The newest product features two baked, crispy cookies on the outside with real peanut butter filling in the middle.
Also new from Lance is its lemon crème Nekot cookies for consumers who want to treat themselves to an indulgent snack. The new item features a tasty lemon crème filling sandwiched between two tasty Nekot cookies.
Cape Cod has introducee two limited-batch flavours: roasted black garlic and smoked gouda potato chips. Made in small batches and available for a limited time only, these new chips score big on flavour and include the legendary hearty crunch of Cape Cod’s kettle-cooked chips, Snyder’s-Lance said.
Cape Cod’s new roasted black garlic popcorn features a unique kettle cooking recipe that delivers great taste with a mild garlic bite.
And Snack Factory, makers of the original pretzel-shaped cracker, Pretzel Crisps, is expanding its ever-growing line of gluten-free Pretzel Crisps by offering a larger, deli-style gluten-free original Pretzel Crisps, which are perfect for dipping, topping and pairing with a variety of delicious ingredients.
Additionally, Snack Factory will introduce its first innovations beyond pretzels this year with the introduction of tortilla chips and pita chips. These new crunchy snacks are free from artificial ingredients and pair perfectly with hummus, guacamole and salsa, the US snack manufacturer said. The tortilla chips are available in sea salt and garlic hummus varieties, while the pita chips can be bought in sea salt and garlic parmesan flavours.
Later this year, Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps will heat up the summer with the limited-edition release of bacon habanero Pretzel Crisps, combining the irresistible flavour of smoky bacon with the heat of habanero.
Late July Snacks will extend its popular taco truck-inspired clásico tortilla chip line with two new flavours: buffalo queso tortilla chips are seasoned with hot and savoury buffalo spices and blended with organic cheddar cheese, while sriracha fresca tortilla chips have the bold kick and popular appeal of sriracha.
Eatsmart Snacks is making smart snacking more exciting with two new varieties of three-bean tortilla chips: garlic hummus and spicy black bean.
Archway Cookies will introduce new gluten-free cookie chips to meet consumers’ desire for light indulgence in a unique, gluten-free option. The cookies come in two varieties: chocolate chip and sugar cookies.
The long-time cookie maker will also introduce new Archway mini salted caramel shortbread, bringing homestyle flavour to a bite-sized cookie.
Stella D’oro, which makes premium Italian cookies, breakfast treats and breadsticks, is introducing lemon starlets. This star-shaped vanilla cookie has a centre filled with lemon fruit.
And, as the president of Snyder’s-Lance’s Clearview Foods division explained, the innovation is just as notable for its health credentials as the sheer breadth of innovation on display.
Peter L Michaud said: “At Snyder’s-Lance we are passionate about developing options for families looking for more snacking choices, which is why many of our new products are considered better-for-you snacks. This innovation is part of an ongoing commitment our company made in May 2015 to deliver great choices across our portfolio, with a goal to have one-third of our products classified as better-for-you. We’re making great progress, and as of March 2016, nearly 30% of our products are considered better-for-you snacks.”
