May 16/Boonton, N.J. -- Mediterranean Snacks, manufacturer of nutritious legume-based snacks like Baked Lentil Chips, Lentil Crackers, and HummuZ crispz, announced it will be introducing a convenient new gluten-free certified, innovative mini meal product line, tapaz2go, combining its protein-rich Lentil Crackers with hummus, at the Summer Fancy Food Show June 30-July 2.
The new tapaz2go product will expand the brand further into gluten-free nutritious snacking, comprised of a single serve pouch of protein-rich Mediterranean Snacks Lentil Crackers along with a container of wholesome hummus in one convenient, portable package. As consumers increasingly believe that eating smaller meals more frequently is healthier, an option like tapaz2go, with 7g of protein 250 calories or less, will be an ideal choice for consumers looking for nutritious, calorically smart options when desiring a substantial on-the-go snack.
“We are very excited about our tapaz2go innovation,” said Vincent P. James, founder and CEO of The Mediterranean Snack Food Company. “There is significant research showing that protein in snacking is becoming more desirable, and tapaz2go provides a snack alternative that satisfies both the appetite and the demand for a nutritious, protein-rich mini meal. We are confident this line, which leverages culinary trends of legumes, tapas and hummus, will be very well-received by a wide range of consumers.”
Mediterranean Snacks tapaz2go will each include Lentil Crackers Sea Salt combined with one variety of hummus -- Classic, Roasted Garlic or Red Pepper. The individual package size is 3.6oz at a suggested retail price of $2.99-3.49, with shelflife of 300 days. These new packages also provide an innovative solution for retailers that have difficulty managing perishable items, as they can be stored chilled or shelf stable at room temperature.
