Chiquita intros on-the-go snack line


Fresh Express is expanding its Chiquita line of products.

The Orlando, Fla.-based company announced the launch of new Chiquita Bites and Sticks, which can be taken on-the-go and enjoyed any time and place.

Chiquita Bites puts together such savory snacks as fruit, cheese and nuts together. Containing 7 g of protein, each is packaged in single-serve trays and includes five different varieties — apple wedges, cheddar cheese and red grapes; apple wedges, Monterey Jack, cranberries and cashews; apple wedges, Monterey Jack, cranberries and raisins; apple wedges, cheddar cheese and multi grain crackers; and apple wedges, cheddar cheese and pretzels.

On the other hand, Chiquita Sticks contains peeled and uniquely cut red apples, which were designed to be dipped into such foods as peanut butter, hummus, caramel, chocolate or yogurt. Each contains vitamin C, and 25 calories per serving, the company said.

“Consumers today look for snacks that will tide them over between meals more than ever. They want snacks that provide them with the protein and essential nutrients they need to get through the day,” Michael Golderman, the marketing brand leader for Fresh Express said. “By tapping into the success of Chiquita’s fresh apple business and pairing it with Fresh Express’ packaged kit expertise, we are able to provide a natural solution to meet this consumer need, creating nourishing, convenient and tasty snacks that our customers can enjoy.”

Both products are currently being rolled out at retailers nationwide.
