It’s never been easier for consumers to walk into the grocery store and find products that meet their needs. Convenience reigns supreme these days, leading to expanded grab-and-go sections in the specialty sector. DePalo Foods is one supplier joining in on the trend, recently launching its new Mini Calzones and Bagel Dogs that elevate the average snacking experience.
“Our new Mini Calzones and Bagel Dogs are great offerings for the snack category/deli grab-n-go case,” said Joseph Piraino, East Coast Regional Manager. “These items can be heated in the oven or microwave in a matter of minutes. The mini calzones (1 oz) are the first of their kind to hit the market in the grab-and-go area. They are case ready and come with their own dipping sauce. The bagel dogs are another item set to hit the shelves for the first time. Packed with a ketchup and mustard packet, these dogs are easy to heat and eat whether you’re on-the-go or need a snack at home.”
These new items offer high quality, convenient snacking, joining DePalo’s full lineup of single-serve Italian products. Joseph explained that the bagel dogs in particular are a first for the market, bringing together fresh dough made from scratch and high-quality, fresh ingredients. By launching its new products, DePalo has filled a critical gap in the market where eating trends intersect with stay-at-home habits. The easy-to-heat-and-eat items can fulfill hungry adults working from home or children looking for a snack after virtual learning.
“We are filling the snacking void with these new products. Calzones are very well known and delicious, and there is nothing like taking a mini calzone and dipping it in your own marinara sauce,” Joseph continued. “As for the bagel dogs, this is something new from DePalo. A staple American snack, our bagel dogs are easy to consume, include a ketchup and mustard packet, and have a resealable container so consumers can save their snack for later.”
