You might have noticed that the snacking trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Consumers are looking for offerings that satisfy two cravings, and companies are racing to give them what they want: snacks that are both healthy and yummy. Enter Peatos™, a new World Peas™ Brand product by Snack it Forward. Aiming at helping Americans eat better, the company created a snack offering that appealed to a wide variety of consumers, not just those who shop in the high-end natural channel.
Made from real cheese and nutrient-rich pulses—such as beans, peas, and lentils—these plant-based snacks come in four delicious flavors and are full of protein, fiber, and iron. Although they might look similar to a certain cheetah-themed snack, the company notes that Peatos have two times the protein and three times the fiber. They might look, taste, and feel like a “junk snack,” but there’s none of the guilt. Suffice it to say, I think these snacks are even better than the junk food alternative.
The flavors include:
Available in attractive, high-graphic pouches, consumers can find these at Kroger stores, Vons, Pavillions, Albertson’s, Safeway, and online at Amazon.com. The pouches have a retail price of $2.99 for a 3 oz stand-up pouch, and $1.29 for single-serve 1 oz bags.
Someone send me over some Peatos ASAP.
