Yogurt should be an indulgent experience. I don’t mean I want my yogurts packed with sugar—and neither do consumers. Instead, both of us want to eat a yogurt that gives us that healthful feeling, which is why Kite Hill®’s latest launch is generating excitement for trade news and consumers alike. The plant-based food company recently launched two new products, including its Kite Hill Blissful®, a thick and creamy line of tasty coconut milk-based yogurts, and Kite Hill Sour Cream Alternative, a rich and smooth plant-based sour cream made with a unique blend of creamy coconut and almond milk.
"Demand for variety, superior taste, and simple ingredients in the non-dairy plant-based market continues to accelerate as consumers actively seek food options that they can feel great about," said Shannon Toyos, Senior Vice President of Marketing. "We are constantly looking for ways to surprise and delight our current and future consumers with tasty artisanal plant-based foods and the launch of our two new product platforms together represent the largest single slate of innovation in the company's history.”
According to a press release, Kite Hill’s coconut milk yogurt is made from simple ingredients like high quality coconut milk and real fruit. As more consumers look to yogurt as a healthy snack, they also want to be wowed by the variety of options. Kite Hill offers such flavors as Decadent Vanilla Bean, Strawberries and Crème, Blueberry Limoncello, Salted Caramel, Café Macchiato, and Peaches and Crème.
The Sour Cream alternative has a sour cream texture achieved by using California almonds and coconut milk.
Both products can be found nationwide at Whole Foods and other specialty retailers. What’s next for Kite Hill? Deli Market News will continue to report.
