McSweeney's Premium Jerky & Meat Snacks has introduced Pep' N Cheddies, the first of its kind "go-portion" pepperoni and cheddar cheese sticks pack. Packaged in six - 25 gram individually portioned easy-peel packs, these portioned snacks are for lunch bags and back packs, in time for back to school.

McSweeney's Pep' N Cheddies feature a mild flavored pepperoni, made with natural ingredients, paired with Bothwell premium cheddar cheese. The snack is high in protein, and is naturally smoked and gluten free.

This new addition will be available across Canada starting August 2016. "Busy people want great products even when they're on the go", says Kylie Landry, McSweeney's Brand Manager. "There is an increasing demand for snacks that are not only portable but are also wholesome and nutritious. Busy parents are looking for convenient items they can throw in their kid's lunches. With grab-and-go items increasing in market share and a trend towards protein snacking, McSweeney's Pep' N Cheddies are certain to make packing lunches a breeze while providing an energizing snack."
