The snacking aisle just got a whole lot hotter as Mount Franklin Foods recently debuted its new Nubu™ Nut Butter Bites. The new, delectable snack combines nuts with 100 percent natural peanut butter in a poppable, better-for-you snack that can be enjoyed at work, home, or on-the-go.
"People love to snack. In fact, 50 percent snack once or twice daily. Many turn to nuts because they are healthy, crunchy, and easy to take along. Nut butters are equally delicious and satisfying," said Dawn Sykora, Vice President of Marketing. "Nubu combines the best of both snacks by using nuts and nut butter in a mess free, bite-size treat that can be enjoyed anywhere."
A recent survey shows that more than 70 percent of people typically turn to nuts, seeds, or trail mixes as their snack of choice. The popularity of nut spreads are also on the rise with more than 60 percent of people indicating that they eat nut or seed butters one or more times per week. According to a press release, Nubu Nut Butter Bites meet the consumers' needs for home or on-the-go snacking options, combining consumers' preference for healthier snacking with a nutty indulgence.
Nubu Nut Butter Bites combine crunchy nuts with natural peanut butter in three varieties that are gluten-free, preservative-free, free of artificial colors and flavors, and vegan-friendly:
"People are looking for snacks with clean and simple ingredients to keep them satisfied, but they don't want to sacrifice taste," said Sykora. "Nubu is a delicious treat for mindful eaters and fits into the smart choices that many of us seek."
Available in 5- or 6-ounce bags, nut butter lovers can leave the spoon and jar at home because Nubu's convenient, sharable pouches make them easy to pack and take on the go. Nubu Nut Butter Bites are available online and in mass merchants and grocery stores nationwide.
