Sargento Foods is giving consumers a balanced way to satisfy their sweet tooth with the release of Sweet Balanced Breaks® Snacks. This new product combines the savory flavors of creamy, natural cheese with sweet ingredients like dried fruits and dark chocolate.

Like the original Balanced Breaks® Snacks, Sweet Balanced Breaks® Snacks give consumers a new way to snack. Each of the four sweet varieties features 5-7 grams of protein and fewer than 200 calories. The new combinations are:

• Natural Cheddar Cheese, Sea-Salted Roasted Almonds, Raisins and Greek Yogurt-Flavored Drops

• Monterey Jack Natural Cheese, Dried Cranberries and Dark Chocolate-Coated Peanuts

• Monterey Jack Natural Cheese, Dried Cranberries, Dark Chocolate Chunks and Banana Chips

• Natural Cheddar Cheese, Milk Chocolate Chunks, Raspberry Flavored Dried Cranberries and Graham Crackers

“The success of Balanced Breaks® Snacks made it clear that people want convenience and variety in their snacks,” said Chris McCarthy, Director of Marketing for the Sargento Foods Consumer Products Division. “The Sweet Balanced Breaks® line offers a new way for consumers to indulge their sweet cravings while still enjoying their favorite natural cheese.”

Sweet Balanced Breaks® Snacks will begin shipping to retail and convenience store locations in early 2017. They come in a package of three 1.5-ounce snacks for a suggested retail price of $3.69.
