Viki Sater of Viki’s Foods has figured out how to take her intensely granola granola and turn it into an indulgent snack with her new Granola Bark, which she’s offering in four scrumptious flavors: Banana Walnut Granola with Milk Chocolate; Blueberry Blast, which has white chocolate and blueberry granola; Orange Blast, which has semisweet chocolate and orange granola; and Original, which features dark chocolate with her Original Granola, which includes almonds, pecans and sunflower seeds.
“It’s a snack, and it’s granola, and everybody loves chocolate,” Sater said, after recommending that this is a treat that will make a perfect little break in the day along with a cup of coffee or tea. It’s a little better-for-you and a little indulgent, and Viki’s will be launching it in fall in time to head back to school in lunchboxes or to be served at holiday get-togethers.
Two package sizes will be offered. The single-serving size will retail for about $1.50 to $2, while the larger 4.5-ounce bag will retail for about $5.49. Depending on the retailer, this product can be merchandised in either the candy and chocolate aisle or with the packaged snacks.
A trusted household brand for 25 years, Royal® is the No. 1 best-selling Basmati Rice in America. To understand why, it’s important to realize that all Basmati is not created equal. Similar to what champagne is to France, truly authentic Basmati Rice can only come from the foothills of the Himalayas.
Under the attentive care of India’s finest farmers, Royal Basmati Rice grows within the perfect harmony of climate, fertile soil and pure mountain spring water. After harvesting, the company then ages the rice in temperature-controlled silos for a minimum of 12 months. The result is a non-sticky, fluffy long-grain rice that is distinctively rich in aroma and delicately flavored.
To guarantee that its rice meets the highest standards, Royal has rigorous QC measures in place that test each batch for purity, length, consistency and density. It also uses state-of-the-art equipment to ensure that every Royal bag is packed with only the finest rice grains.
Royal’s Basmati Rice is uniquely versatile: it’s at home in curry recipes, is delectable as a pilaf or gratin main dish, is delicious when tossed as a salad and even fits in dessert recipes as a pudding or garnish. The culinary possibilities are endless!
Royal offers a wide assortment of non-GMO white and brown Basmati Rice in a full range of pack sizes, from 2-pound trial-size pouches to foodservice-friendly 20-pound and 40-pound bags.
