Mooala intros strawberry bananamilk
Mooala fans will soon have a new flavor they can sample.
The Dallas-based company, which produces dairy-free beverages, announced the launch of its new strawberry bananamilk.
“People from all walks of life are embracing a plant-powered lifestyle, and we’re also observing that traditional dairy drinkers’ diets are shifting to incorporate more plant-based alternatives,” Mooala founder and CEO Jeff Richards said. “Our latest innovation — Mooala strawberry bananamilk — features a blissfully sweet flavor profile that fuses real organic strawberries and bananas to give today’s shoppers a delicious, but guilt-free, smoothie base or stand-alone treat packed with nutrition for growing families.”
Crafted from fruits and roasted sunflower seeds, Mooala’s strawberry bananamilk is USDA-certified organic and does not contain any added sugar or preservatives. The beverage also only has 70 calories per serving and is gluten-free, kosher and carrageenan-free, the company said.
Mooala’s strawberry bananamilk will hit the refrigerated aisle at Whole Foods and Albertsons-Safeway stores throughout October before expanding to additional retailers in late 2018 and early 2019.

FoodStory Brands, the parent company behind Fresh Cravings’ line of refrigerated salsa, announced that its products would now be featured on Publix’s shelves.
The Phoenix-based company’s new line of organic salsas is available in three different heat varieties — restraint style mild, medium and hot — and in either chunky salsa mild or medium heat options, as well. In addition, the brand’s grab-and-go restaurant-style salsa with tortilla chips in mild and medium also are available for purchase.
“When creating Fresh Cravings Organic refrigerated salsa, we held tight to our mission to offer Americans better, healthier foods at affordable prices. We especially wanted to remove the cost barrier so that more people can have access to fresh, organic foods,” said Jay Whitney, president of FoodStory Brands, the company behind Fresh Cravings. “We have seen tremendous success with our core line of Fresh Cravings Salsa, and developing organic recipes was a natural next step. We are absolutely thrilled to be launching Fresh Cravings Organic Salsa with such an esteemed retailer as Publix.”
Each product comes in a 16-oz. size and is made in Southern California with such certified organic ingredients as vine-ripened tomatoes and vegetables that are never cooked or pasteurized, the company said.
Flavors featured in the salsas include chili peppers, jalapeños, onions, cilantro, cumin, oregano and garlic.
