Deli Market News Shares October 2023 Picks

Monday, October 30th, 2023

With 31 days in the month, October is ripe for new releases, engaging promotions, and impulse purchases on all things seasonal. While the spooky month has come and gone, we’re left with a plethora of newly released items that captured my attention, great for gatherings or a casual night in.

Somerdale International’s Wensleydale With Pumpkin Spice

I would be remiss if I didn’t start off this countdown with Somerdale International’s Wensleydale With Pumpkin Spice. The new item is a spin on a beloved classic. Somerdale’s Wensleydale is specially created with a pumpkin spice blend, combining the natural acidity and sweetness of white cheese with the warmth of ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon. And who’s to say that shoppers wouldn’t be keen to come back for more as we roll into November? Pumpkin spice is the epitome of fall flavors, and this product is perfect to keep on the shelf.

Murray’s Cheese and FireFly Farms Carpenter's Wheel

Another cheese item that shoppers can experience is Muray’s Cheese and FireFly Farms Carpenter's Wheel. Now, this may not be a new item, but it is coming back to much excitement. The goat’s milk wheel won third place at the American Cheese Society competition, and I don’t know about your customer demographic, but my eyes always get drawn to awarded items.

Joseph’s Bakery Heart Friendly Pita Bread

Did Joseph’s Bakery time its latest Heart Friendly Pita Bread launch just in time for some heavy holiday eating? Whether it was planned or not, the bakery brand’s recent certification from the American Heart Association’s Heart-Check Food Certification Program makes this product a stand-out player in the carb category. Be sure to cross-merchandise with some lean proteins or fresh produce to give inspiration for easy meals.

Olli Salumeria Antipasto Trays

For SKUs that are already pre-packed and prepared, guide your shoppers to Olli Salumeria’s newly expanded line of Olli’s Antipasto Trays. Now available in five varieties, there’s an option for everybody. Plus, single eaters need not worry about waste or storage, for these packs come resealable to allow casual grazing. Style on a charcuterie board or enjoy right from the pack, this convenient item works wonderfully whether in the house or on the road.

La Panzanella® Croccantini® Cracker

And what’s a charcuterie or cheese board without a crunchy vehicle? La Panzanella® recently reformulated its Croccantini® cracker to be made with 100 percent Extra Virgin Olive Oil. By using Extra Virgin Olive Oil, the company reinforces the quality and stays true to its Italian heritage and roots. Crisp, long, and resealable, the revamped item makes for a great accouterment for any cheese, protein, produce, or dip. Plus, the Croccantini comes in eight flavors, so shoppers can mix and match to enjoy a vast flavor experience.

If you don’t already have these items on your order list, try them out next time and see eyes (and registers) light up.
