Great flavor breeds brand loyalty—this is a given in our industry, and Sweetwood Smokehouse brings this to its retail partners in spades. The company is kicking off the year with a contagious excitement that I just had to share as well as a lineup of products to wow the aisles. Cody Miles, Sales and Operations Coordinator, is setting the stage abuzz this 2020, sharing the company’s energetic platform.
“The product in our lineup that really encapsulates the vision of Sweetwood Smokehouse is the 2 oz FATTY smoked meat stick,” Cody shares with me. “Our hickory-smoked meat sticks are the perfect grab-and-go protein snacks. Our focus on quality ingredients, bold packaging, and great flavor has really started to make waves in the industry.”
My response? Tell me more! Cody adds that the 2 oz FATTY comes in four flavors: Original, Jalapeño, Honey BBQ and Teriyaki. Each FATTY is made with a handcrafted blend of ABF pork, grass-fed beef, and all-natural ingredients.
“At Sweetwood Smokehouse, we smoke all of our products with real American hickory wood. Most competitors use liquid smoke, creating a less natural flavor experience. Plus, all our products are gluten-free, with no added MSG, nitrites, or nitrates,” Cody says.
Sweetwood’s 2 oz FATTY has an average of 12 grams of protein per serving and covers the low-sugar needs of the consumer. FATTY hickory-smoked meat sticks are sold nationwide in a variety of ways, from convenience, specialty outdoor, grocery, and online stores to collegiate and professional nutrition programs.
“One of the biggest advantages for retailers looking to carry the Sweetwood Smokehouse brand is that products like the 2 oz FATTY really stand apart from the competition. The 2 oz FATTY has almost double the protein and size of any other meat stick. Pair that with our bold ‘FATTY’ name and packaging, and you have a product that grabs consumers’ attention,” Cody wraps up.
As both a consumer and trade news writer, I am excited about the prospect of a protein-packed 2020. Now, retailers, time to pick up the ball!
