FOODMatch Partner BobbySue's Nuts Wins Gold and Silver SOFIs


NEW YORK, NY
Wednesday, April 26th, 2017

It’s one of the specialty category’s favorite times of the year: the SOFI awards are here, and the winners have been crowned. As the industry prepares for the Specialty Food Association’s Summer Fancy Food Show, BobbySue’s Nuts and FOODMatch are gearing up for the show with two wins under their belt.

The companies have taken home a Gold Award for its Everything Goes Nuts offering, and a Silver Award for its Nuts Over Olivers in the Savory Snack Category.

"We are thrilled to win not just the top award for the Savory Snacks category, but the silver medal, too," said Owner Barbara Kobren. "What an honor to be recognized for the quality and innovation BobbySue's Nuts and FOODMatch partnered to create. Our two organizations joined efforts three years ago, recognizing a mutual dedication to product excellence and the opportunity to deliver exciting, new flavors to the nut and healthy snack categories. We are delighted to jointly celebrate this recognition of what has been a fantastic, collaborative effort."

BobbySue’s Nuts took home the two top spots for its culinary excellence from over 215 entries, according to a press release.

Everything Goes Nuts took home the Gold SOFI Award for its innovative take on the everything bagel, but without the actual bagel. With sesame, poppy, onion, garlic, salt, and spices, this gluten-free offering gives consumers the taste of a bagel but with the added crunch of almonds, cashews, and pecans. 

The Silver SOFI Award winner, Nuts Over Olives, was a special creation between FOODMatch and BobbySue’s Nuts as the savory sensation includes black and green Divina brand olives–coated in spices. The mix of almonds, cashews, and pecans blends in all the sweet, salty, and spicy flavor notes with ease. With an addictive crunch, the company stated that the mix has been a game-changer in the snacking category as the ultimate Mediterranean trail mix.
