Crunch Pak, maker of sliced fresh apples, will introduce additions to its
"Apple Snackers" line at the United Fresh Produce Association show, which
was scheduled for April 21-22 in Las Vegas.
"Apple Snackers" are nutritious snacks that contain interesting combinations
of fruits and other sides, such as dips and cheese, in a mini-tray. Crunch Pak
now makes fresh "Apple Snackers" choices that include apples, cheese and
grapes; apples, cheese and pretzels; and apples, cheese and caramel.
The line additions include combinations of apples, peanut butter and raisins;
apples with caramels and chocolate morsels; apples, cheese and crackers;
apples, pretzels and raisins; and apples, granola and peanut butter. The new
"Apple Snackers" will begin shipping in May with a suggested retail price of
$1.99 to $2.29.
Crunch Pak is adding the new "Apple Snackers" items to meet the growing
demand for healthy, convenient, portable snacks, said Tony Freytag, national
"Snacking items are among the fastest-growing segments of the fresh fruit
category," he said in an April 7 press release. "Apple Snackers appeal to
children and adults; we have something for everyone in a package that is
easy to grab and go."
