Cow Candy®—whether you’re delighted or appalled, the name of this company by itself is enough to conjure up an intense curiosity. Is it cheese? Is it candy? The reality is, Cow Candy aims to be a little bit of both, taking two of the biggest snacking segments and turning them on their heads.
Essentially, Cow Candy is a new Monterey Jack cheese snack, except instead of the typical flavor a consumer might expect, each bite surprises its eater with a bold fruit flavor. Combining the whimsy of the candy aisle with the nutrition found in Wisconsin cheese, it’s not hard to imagine Cow Candy as a new fan favorite of both parents and kids.
"As a parent, it can be difficult to find a healthy, easy-to-serve snack that competes with candy. This struggle led to the creation of Cow Candy, a high-quality cheese bursting with fruit flavor to tempt kids' taste buds and establish healthy snacking habits,” explained Founder Danyel O’Connor. "While the playful colors and flavor combinations may be surprising to adult palettes, we've seen firsthand how quickly even the pickiest little eaters gobble up this sweet/savory snack.”
Available in several different flavors, the cheese run the gamut of candy-like flavors, including fruit punch jack, grape jack, honey jack, orange jack, and strawberry jack cheese. Each stick of Cow Candy contains 15 percent of the daily value of calcium, 4 grams of protein, and just 1 to 2 grams of sugar per serving—all with no artificial ingredients, according to a press release.
"Children's bodies are growing and developing so fast," said Nutritionist Tierney Planasch. "It's important for them to consume foods that are high in vitamins and minerals, while lower in sugars. Cheese provides ideal amounts of protein, calcium and vitamin D as well as potassium and vitamins from the B-complex, which helps with muscle and nerve growth."
