Bell & Evans Gourmet Chicken Burgers debut less than a year after Bell & Evans introduced its Premium Chicken Meatballs to the consumer market. Similar to the gourmet burgers, the meatballs are made from Bell & Evans dark meat chicken and sold uncooked and nitrogen frozen in three varieties including traditional, Buffalo Seasoned and Parmesan Breaded with Mozzarella. Bell & Evans’ largest retail partners carry the meatballs including national distribution at Whole Foods Market.
