Fruit Bliss Adds Tart Cherries to Organic Dried Fruit Line

Fruit Bliss is excited to announce the expansion of its organic dried fruit line to include soft and juicy rehydrated Tart Cherries.
“After the success of our current line of organic dried fruit, we are excited to add Tart Cherries to the list,” said Susan Leone, Founder and Owner of Fruit Bliss. “Our Tart Cherries are great for a healthy snack right out of the bag, or for an extra flavor zing in any recipe or smoothie.”

Like all of Fruit Bliss’ products, these Tart Cherries are organic, non-GMO verified, gluten free and contain no preservatives. They will be available in 4 ounce re-sealable pouches on Amazon and in markets around the country.

“Compared with other dried fruits, ours are soft and juicy, with no added sulfites,” said Leone, a Brooklyn mom who decided to start Fruit Bliss to fill the gap in 100 percent healthy snacks on the supermarket shelves. “Fruit Bliss really is dried fruit reinvented and a truly healthy snack or addition to many dishes.”

Epic Source Foods Offers Goat Milk Products

Epic Source Foods’ Funny Farm portfolio consists of the world’s first mac & cheese, cheddar popcorn and frozen pizza line made exclusively with goat milk. Now the portfolio contains over 20 SKUs that include hard and soft cheeses, butter and unique cheese spreads unlike anything else you can find in the U.S.

epicsource editphoto1Julia and Tim Millson, Owners of Epic Source, say they’re having a ball with this portfolio. The amazing nutritional and sustainability benefits combined with the cow-like taste has catapulted it to one of the fastest growing “real-dairy” companies. The company has transitioned from a 15-year-old goat milk ice cream company called Laloo’s to a full goat milk portfolio covering edge and center store opportunities. The company’s passion to get its products into the hands of the hundreds of millions of consumers that can’t or won’t consume cow milk is what drives it.

The delicious reputation of the Laloo’s ice cream is what brought customer acceptance so quickly. Until Funny Farm, there were no other “real dairy” food options outside of cow milk. The company believes that goat milk is sustainably and nutritionally superior. Goat milk is the closest thing to mother’s milk on the planet, and contains less lactose, lower carbs, more vitamin A and D, potassium, copper, iron and manganese. Goat milk fat globules are 90 percent smaller than a cow’s, providing a digestibility edge. Cow milk contains Alpha s1 casein, the allergen that affects so many. The sustainability that goats provide are amazing; their tiny carbon hoofprint combined with the fact goats produce more milk per ounce of grass eaten than cows make them the perfect dairy source. North America is finally catching on to this worldwide trend, with goat milk consumption growing while cow milk continues to decline.

Thanks to its clean taste profiles, people don’t believe the company’s products are made from goat milk. Its milk doesn’t contain those grassy, lemony flavors it refers to as “goaty.” Better milk really does makes better cheese and ice cream!
