 BakeryandSnacks tracks new product launches for the first two months of this year.

While low calorie, zero fat, gluten-free, organic, natural and guilt-free are the latest buzzwords, serial snackers are also keen on a bit of indulgence. 

Ola! France

After the success of organic crackers and gluten, French snack maker Mister Free’d has added a line of maize tortilla chips to its line-up of organic and gluten-free crackers. Based on simple and natural ingredients, the corn chips are available in three flavors, including kale and spinach; blue corn; and chia and sesame seeds.

Zero fat pretzel punch

US bakery producer Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps has released its newest variety, Organic Original Pretzel Crisps, which are also non-GMO and available for a limited time in the US. At 110 calories per serving, the crisps contain no saturated fat, zero trans fat, cholesterol, preservatives, artificial flavorings or colors. The chips can be found in the deli section at grocery stores nationwide.

Just in time for spring

Nonni’s White Chocolate Cherry and Limoncello Pistachio Biscotti have hit the shelves. The North American artisan baker has introduced the spring biscotti flavors to grocery stores nationwide from March for a limited time. Each cookie is made with wholesome ingredients, including real eggs, butter, fruits and nuts. The box contains eight individually wrapped biscotti.

Nordic snacking

In response to the trends recorded in the Nordic diet survey, Orkla has launched a range of low salt, low sugar, fewer calories, organic snacks and cereals in Sweden and Denmark. These include a between-meal oat biscuit Digestive Havremål; Glutenfri Granola from Paulúns; and a new snacking range, Grandiosa Quesadilla, that comes in two versions, Chicken and Cheese Taco. OLW is offering four different flavours of popcorn under the KiMs brand (for the Danish market), while Bare Bra from TORO is a range of Supergranola and Supermüsli breakfast cereals and Supergrøt porridge.

In the raw

British raw foods firm Saf Life has introduced a range of vegan and gluten free snacks under the ‘Saf Raw’ brand. The company’s signature Impulse range includes Chewy Protein Bites, Organic Pudding Bites, Organic Raw Choc Trail Mixes and Organic Coconut Chips, packaged in recyclable pillow packs. The new range complement the existing grocery portfolio that includes Kale Crisps, Activated Crackers, Activated Nuts, Cereal Bites and Nutty Nori.

Crafted for cravings

Funky Chunky has launched three specialty coffee flavors to their non-GMO popcorn stash – Caramel Latte; Vanilla Sweet Crème; and Dark Chocolate Mocha. The café society-inspired products took the Minnesota gourmet popcorn and pretzel snack company a year to develop. Available in the US at speciality retail shops.
