Mediterranean Snacks®, manufacturer of nutritious legume-based snacks like Baked Lentil Chips®, Lentil Crackers, and HummuZ crackers™, will be launching a convenient new Gluten-Free certified, mini meal product line, tapaz2go™, combining their protein-rich Lentil Crackers with shelf stable hummus, at the Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco, California, January 19-21 at booth number 434.
The new innovative tapaz2go captures ‘healthy convenience’, and will expand the brand further into gluten-free nutritious snacking. It is comprised of a single serve pouch of their successful Mediterranean Snacks Lentil Crackers along with a container of wholesome hummus in one on-the-go, portable package. As consumers increasingly believe that eating smaller meals more frequently is healthier , an option like tapaz2go, with 7 grams of protein and 250 calories or less, will be an ideal choice for consumers looking for nutritious, calorically smart options when desiring a substantial on-the-go snack.
“We are very excited about our tapaz2go innovation,” said Vincent P. James, founder and CEO of The Mediterranean Snack Food Company. “There is significant research showing that protein in snacking is becoming more desirable, and tapaz2go provides a snack alternative that satisfies both the appetite and the demand for a nutritious, protein-rich mini meal. We are confident this line, which leverages culinary trends of legumes, tapas and hummus, will be very well-received by a wide range of consumers.”
Mediterranean Snacks tapaz2go will each include Lentil Crackers Sea Salt combined with one variety of hummus – Classic, Roasted Garlic or Red Pepper. The individual package size is 3.6oz at a suggested retail price of $2.99, with shelf life of 300 days. These new packages also provide an innovative solution for retailers that have difficulty managing perishable items, as they can be stored chilled or shelf stable at room temperature. Mediterranean Snacks tapaz2go are an ideal option for grocery and convenience stores, or delis as a grab and go choice – the no mess, no fuss built-in serving tray makes this perfect for active consumers as between meal snacking.
