Tahini, the smooth sesame paste essential to Middle Eastern hummus, is making a huge statement in the specialty foods sector. As consumers line up to add tahini to sandwiches, baked goods, desserts, and cocktails—yes, you read that right—Kayco, manufacturer and supplier of kosher foods, jumped onto the tahini train.
To keep this train running at full steam, the company announced two exciting additions to its tahini lineup. Its tahini snack bars, which were once marketed under the Absolutely Gluten Free brand, are now under its Mighty Sesame brand. But that’s not the only tahini-themed announcement. Kayco also announced the addition of Tahini Squeeze & Serve, which features the Mighty Sesame Company’s versatile tahini in squeezable bottles.
Creamy and decadent, the ready-to-use tahini is made from 100 percent slow-roasted sesame seeds. The product is organic, vegan, gluten- and dairy-free, kosher, and halal. The suggested retail price is $4.99 per 10.9 oz bottle. The squeezable bottles can be found at Walmart stores nationwide, as well as Whole Foods, Publix, Wegmans, and Amazon.
The TahiniBars have brand-new packaging and all three varieties are gluten-and dairy-free, vegan, kosher, and delicious. The suggested retail price is $3.99 - $4.89 per box of six individually wrapped 0.63 oz. bars. They are available at Walmart, Meijer, and H-E-B as well as other independent foods stores.
