AdvancePierre Foods (APF), Cincinnati, expanded its Hot ‘n’ Ready sandwich line with the launch of two Pretzel Flatbread Sandwiches: Sausage, Egg & Cheese Pretzel Flatbread and Canadian Bacon, Egg White & Cheese Pretzel Flatbread.
APF says the new offerings are ideal convenience store grab-and-go breakfast sales.
“Unique sandwich ingredients help to differentiate and drive traffic because consumers want variety,” says Tony Schroder, president of convenience channels at APF. “Our new Hot ‘n’ Ready Pretzel Flatbread sandwiches provide fast, great-tasting, better-for-you breakfast options that will grow sales and attract new customers for convenience retailers.”
APF says the Sausage, Egg & Cheese Pretzel Flatbread features a savory sausage patty with a scrambled egg and American cheese, served on a pretzel flatbread (280 calories). The ingredients of the Canadian Bacon, Egg White & Cheese Pretzel Flatbread include a slice of Canadian bacon on an egg white with American cheese, served on a pretzel flatbread (140 calories).
These new products reflect top sandwich themes as reported by Technomic, a leading fact-based consulting and research firm serving the food industry, and introduce several “firsts” for the brand. This is the first flatbread option, the first pretzel bread option and the first use of egg white as an ingredient.
The Pretzel Flatbread Sandwiches have a seven-day refrigerated shelf life and a 12-month frozen shelf life. The hand-wrapped sandwiches can hold hot in a sandwich warmer for up to four hours.
