ChomChom launches new pet hair removal roller
For those who are tired of having to clean pet hair off any visible surface, ChomChom may have the answer to their worries.
The Bellevue, Wash.-based company, which previously launched a pet hair removal roller, has unveiled its latest innovation in the category — an extra-large format for consumers to use.
“The technology behind the ChomChom Rollers allows pet owners to remove dog hair and cat hair quickly without using sticky tapes, vacuum cleaners, or any power source,” Aaron Muller, CEO of ChomChom, said. “People loved the handheld ChomChom Roller, but they wanted something for the floor. After numerous requests, I decided to put our roller on a long broom handle, creating a lightweight solution for people to remove pet hair from rugs, carpets and carpeted stairs easily without using a heavy vacuum cleaner.”
Developed as an eco-friendly product, the rollers are 100% reusable and require no power source or sticky tape, the company said.
Available in an extra-large size, which contains a long broom handle, it retails for $34.95 and can be found on Amazon.
Dang Foods intros plant-based keto bars
Dang Foods is diving into the popular keto-diet trend.
The Berkeley, Calif.-based company, which is best known for its coconut chips and sticky-rice chips, unveiled its new keto-certified bars.
Featuring plant-based ingredients, the line contains such ingredients as almond butter, cocoa butter, coconut, pea protein, sunflower seeds and chia seeds.
“Dang’s keto-friendly lightly salted coconut chips are the fastest-growing item within the portfolio due to their high-fat, low-carb macronutrient profile. Keto is on fire right now, garnering more interest than Paleo and Whole30 because the benefits are clear: mental acuity, sustained energy and reduced appetite,” Dang’s founder, Vincent Kitirattragarn, said. “We did the research and couldn’t find good-tasting keto snacks, so we decided to make Dang Bar using whole ingredients. We pride ourselves on creating delicious snacks with Asian flavors and ingredients, and Dang Bar is no exception.”
Previously called Fatbar, each product contains 10 g of protein, 15 g of fat and 4-to-5 g of net carbs; has no added sugar; and is both vegan and gluten-free, the company said.
Available in three flavors — almond vanilla, lemon matcha and chocolate sea salt — Dang Bars come in 12-count packs that can be found on the company’s website. The bar will launch in retailers nationwide beginning January 2019 at Whole Foods Market.
Three additional bars — cardamom chai, toasted coconut and Saigon cinnamon chocolate — will hit shelves in February 2019.
St. Jude’s, Green Giant partner on limited-edition packaging
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital announced a new partnership with Green Giant.
The hospital will have two of its patients — Addy, age 4 and Bailey, age 13 — artwork features on limited edition bags of Green Giant’s Veggie Tots, which can be found on the shelves of grocery stores nationwide beginning in fall.
“Green Giant is incredibly generous in its support of St. Jude, our patients and lifesaving mission,” Richard Shadyac Jr., president and CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, said. “We’re thrilled to partner with this iconic brand as Green Giant uses its platform and popularity to showcase our patients’ stories and the critical work of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.”
In addition to the artwork, Green Giant, which is part of the B&G Foods portfolio, donated $350,000 to assist the organization’s efforts in leading the way in how the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer as well as other life-threatening diseases, the company said.
“We’re proud to bring our partnership with St. Jude to the freezer aisle in such a big way by featuring patient artwork and compelling stories on our new limited edition Green Giant Veggie Tots packaging,” Jordan Greenberg, vice president and general manager of Green Giant, said. “It was important for us to release this timed to September and Childhood Cancer Awareness Month to bring awareness of the important work being done by St. Jude to help children and families.”
