The new Ruby Fresh Jewels Grab-N-Go pomegranate aril cups, in four- and 5.3-ounce cups, now come in two-packs and four-packs. Display-ready, these convenient Grab-N-Go Pomegranate Aril snack cups were designed in stand-up packaging to be displayed in refrigeration units. The eye-catching sleeve allows for product information to be readily available while still letting the consumer view the pomegranate arils in the convenient snack cups.

Processed pomegranate arils have been gaining popularity with consumers, not only as an ingredient but also as a healthy snack rich in antioxidants. Ruby Fresh Jewels pomegranate aril cups are proportioned to make them a convenient, healthy snack for adults and kids alike. Their re-sealable lid maintains freshness while making them easy to measure and add to recipes. Additional improvements to sleeve design, including it’s snap-lock enclosure and finger-grabs, add to the packaging’s uniqueness.
