Twang Partners is expanding its Twangerz Snack Topping line to include two new options for foodservice providers. The company will now offer individual packets of its Chili Lime Salt and food service-sized shakers of seven Twangerz Snack Topping flavors to retailers. Twangerz are unique, bold flavored salt and sugar blends that are a quick and low-calorie way to add zest to meals and snacks.
According to the NPD Group, a leading market research firm, fruit is the top snack food in the country. With more Americans grabbing meals and snacks on-the-go, fresh fruit consumption is only expected to increase. The new Twangerz food service options are ideal for those looking to capitalize on this trend by offering customers added value and added flavor.
“We are launching our new Twangerz foodservice products for the c-store managers and food service providers who want to provide their customers with a little something extra to improve their experience and overall satisfaction with their purchase,” said Elysia Gonzales, marketing director of Twang Partners. “Our Chili Lime packets and food service jars offer consumers the chance to add an extra pop of flavor to their food while becoming more familiar with our Twangerz line of products.”
Derived from the Hispanic tradition of adding spicy citrus toppings to snacks, Twangerz Chili Lime Snack Topping is created by blending a trio of chilies with zesty lemon-lime. The food grade portion packet fits perfectly in pre-packaged fruit cups and snack packs, for those looking to add some zing to their selection. Each packet is one gram and can be ordered in custom amounts catering to the needs of the retailer.
The new Twangerz Food Service Jars are designed for placement in prime store locations like fruit bars, snack bars, delicatessens and concession areas. A wide variety of flavor offerings including Lime, Lemon Lime, Chili Lime, Mango Chili, Pickle, Hot Pickle and Tamarind are available and appeal to both general and Latino audiences. The jars are available in 8, 6.5, 6 and 5.5-ounce sizes, depending on the flavor. The foodservice jar offerings were created to give retailers the opportunity to create a value added experience for their consumers. In essence, this allows the consumer to sample Twangerz brand snack toppings, possibly leading to future purchases of the product in store.
All Twangerz products are blended in the USA, using premium ingredients and natural flavors. The new Twangerz food service offerings are available to order now and will arrive in stores in early June. For more information, visit Twang.com.
