Enjoy Life Foods is relaunching its ProBurst Bites as Protein Bites with new flavors added to the line. Protein Bites boast an elevated taste and texture profile, but with the same great plant-based protein in each poppable bite that fans know and love. Debuting two new flavors, including Dark Raspberry and Dipped Banana, Protein Bites will also be available in familiar options like Sunseed™ Butter and Cinnamon Spice. The company is also expanding its range of free-from foods with new Grain & Seed Bars, the first bars to combine three types of the ancient grain sorghum in four enticing flavors: Chocolate Marshmallow, Banana Caramel, Maple Sweet Potato and Cranberry Orange.
“Part of what makes Enjoy Life special is our open line of communication with our community,” said Joel Warady, General Manager and Chief Sales & Marketing Officer at Enjoy Life Foods. “We knew from consumer feedback that there was an undeniable love for our original bites, but because we know how important flavor and texture are, we made the choice to give them the boost our consumers deserve. As a result, we’ve landed on four incredibly delicious recipes that raise the bar for protein bites everywhere.”
Enjoy Life’s chocolately, truffle-like Protein Bites are packed with six grams of plant-based protein and offer a burst to power through the day. Enclosed in a rich chocolate shell, each flavor is free from palm oil and 14 allergens, including wheat, peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, casein, soy, egg, sesame, sulfites, lupin, mustard, fish, shellfish, and crustaceans. Protein Bites are also certified gluten free, Non-GMO Project verified, vegan, halal and kosher. Available in spring 2018, Protein Bites will retail for $6.99 for
each resealable six-ounce bag. Like all Enjoy Life products, each bag carries a bright teal color designed to shed a positive spotlight on food allergies while creating a cohesive brand block on shelf.
Litehouse Inc., a 100 percent employee-owned company and the number-one Refrigerated Salad Dressing (RSD) brand in the U.S. and Canada, is adding a new member to its organic family: Litehouse Organic Lemon Herb Vinaigrette. Big on flavor, yet light on calories, the new vinaigrette is bursting with the crisp, bright taste of lemon and delicious hints of herbs, to add zest to salads or recipes with less than 50 calories per 2-tablespoon serving.
According to Technomic, consumer demand for the tart taste and flavor of lemon continues to grow, as does the overall organic RSD segment at a rate of 49 percent. To meet these demands, Litehouse developed its light and refreshing Organic Lemon Herb Vinaigrette, which was recently declared the best-tasting lemon dressing by consumers during a blind sensory test against competing brands. Litehouse Organic Lemon Herb Vinaigrette joins the best-selling Organic line, the only triple certified dressings with USDA organic, certified gluten free, and Non-GMO Project Verified certifications on the market.
“Consumers love our organic dressings and we continue to expand the line by delivering new and delicious flavors that make every dish exceptional,” said Brooke Gansemer, Litehouse Assistant Brand Manager. “Pair this dairy-free dressing on a dark green salad, drizzled over grilled vegetables, or as a chicken marinade – the options are endless!”
Litehouse Organic Lemon Herb Vinaigrette joins six other delicious Litehouse Organic flavors: Organic Balsamic, Organic Ranch, Organic Caesar, Organic Raspberry Lime, Organic Rosemary Balsamic and Organic Ginger with Honey.
The new Organic Lemon Herb Vinaigrette can be found in the produce department next to the rest of Litehouse’s refrigerated dressing line and will be available in December for a suggested retail price of $5.99.
