I think we can all collectively agree that the holiday season is crazy, right? After all of the decorating, gift buying, gatherings, and more, exhaustion looms, begging for easy indulgences to make meals and snacking convenient. However, consumers don’t want to skimp on flavor! Looking back over the month, I’ve compiled a list of items that are not only easy to prep—or need no prep at all—but bring mouthwatering tastes to any occasion.

Bertolli Stuffed Olives

You couldn’t get more convenience if you tried. All shoppers need to do is sit back, kick up their feet, and pop open one of these jars of olives to partake in a flavor-packed snack that will keep their tastebuds satisfied. And, I mean, if they wanted to share, they are a fantastic addition to any charcuterie board. I have my eyes on the Blue Cheese Stuffed Olives, but all of them can be winners in the deli department.

Danish Creamery European Style Butters

Does everyone remember butter boards, the viral sensation that swept TikTok in 2022? Well, I do, and these newly launched European Style Butters would be great for a revival of the trend. Available in Garlic Salt, Pink Himalayan Salt, and Rosemary Salt varieties, these butters would be fantastically merchandised alongside some freshly made bread or crackers for an elevated snack option.

CaPeachio’s Assortment Pack

Speaking of crackers, Venus Wafers’ CaPeachio’s brand is offering an assortment pack that makes it easy to implement variety into snacking occasions. The packs include three flavors: Original Water, Multigrain Wheat, and Butter, making it easy to appeal to any snackers. Combine these quality crackers with cheese slices and protein, and consumers have an adult Lunchable® that can easily serve as “girl dinner.”

Litehouse Collaboration with Guy Fieri

We all recognize Guy Fieri and his dedication to flavor—I mean, he’s literally the Mayor of Flavortown. Luckily for shoppers, Litehouse has teamed up with the famed chef to unveil a lineup of nine premium sauces and condiments that can quickly boost any meal. With the Super Bowl coming up, these offerings are an ideal pairing with classic tailgate foods like burgers, sandwiches, BBQ, and so much more. Plus, they will easily attract consumers as Guy Fieri’s name alone beckons shoppers to add products to their baskets.

PERDUE® Air Fryer Ready™ Crispy Wings

I wake up and thank the universe every day for my air fryer. Okay, that might be a tad overdramatic, but like many other consumers, that thing has made meals a breeze, and Perdue is tapping into the air fryer revolution. The crispy wings come in Roasted, Hot N’ Spicy, and Lemon Pepper varieties (I can say after sampling them, the Hot N’ Spicy have my heart) and can be made in under 20 minutes. Talk about taking game time to new heights in a flash!

There you have it! With your shoppers wiped from the holidays, these five offerings can provide them with a reprieve from planning and prepping as we enter 2024. Keep reading Deli Market News to uncover what special products will catch our team's eye in the new year.
