The words “plant-based innovation” always get my gears turning. What more could this sector offer to us meatless eaters? Retailers will soon have an exciting new offering to reel in shoppers, as Hormel Foods has reimagined protein with its Happy Little Plants® brand’s newest product: plant-based protein puffs.
"Consumers today are looking for easy ways to incorporate more plant-based foods into their diets, and we are very excited to bring these new great-tasting, Happy Little Plants plant-based protein puffs snack option to everyone," said Robbie Koons, Brand Manager. "The new Happy Little Plants plant-based protein puffs were developed to make plant-based protein portable and snackable."
According to a press release, these plant-based protein puffs provide 16 grams of protein per serving, contain no preservatives, are gluten free, and come in three varieties: Ranch, Nacho Cheese, and Cinnamon & Sugar. As of now, the offering is only available on Amazon.com, but we at Deli Market News suspect that it will roll out to more retailers in no time.
The Happy Little Plants brand was introduced by Hormel Foods in 2019 and celebrates the power of plant protein while offering a great-tasting solution for people looking to add more plant-based food into their diet.
