Mediterranean Snacks® Introduces New Flavors at Winter Fancy Food Show

(December 4, 2012 – Boonton, NJ): (Virtual Press Office) -- Mediterranean Snacks®, maker of nutritious legume-based snacks like Baked Lentil Chips®, Lentil Crackers and garbanzo-based HummuZ crispz™, will introduce new flavors of both Baked Lentil Chips and Lentil Crackers at the 2013 Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco, CA, January 20-22, at booth number 5419.

New for 2013, Mediterranean Snacks will offer nutritious Baked Lentil Chips in a unique Fiery Tomato flavor. With notes of garlic, basil and hot chilis, new Fiery Tomato will add an exciting dimension of heat to the existing line-up of Baked Lentil Chips, which currently includes Sea Salt, Cracked Pepper, Rosemary, Parmesan Garlic, Roasted Pepper and Cucumber Dill. Baked Lentil Chips are a delicious, low fat, calorically smart alternative to traditional fried chips. Along with being Gluten-Free certified and all-natural, they are also a good source of fiber, made from protein-rich, nutritious lentils, and are non-GMO project verified, which is becoming increasingly important. Plus, with 22 chips in a single serving from only 110 calories, they are the perfect snack for an active lifestyle and on-the-go crunch craving.

Mediterranean Snacks Lentil Crackers are the first cracker made with protein-rich lentils, and now they will feature a new Tomato Basil flavor, in addition to Sea Salt, Cracked Pepper and Rosemary Herb varieties. Savory Mediterranean herbs make this a delicious, vibrantly flavored snack solution for health-conscious consumers looking for a pleasing crunch, and to partner with cheese or dips. Not only are they certified Gluten-Free, non-GMO verified and a good source of protein, they also provide a satisfying serving of 15 crackers for only 120 calories.

In addition to offering new flavors of Baked Lentil Chips and Lentil Crackers, Mediterranean Snacks will also introduce single serve portion 1oz packages of HummuZ crispz, an all-natural, garbanzo-based answer to snack cravings. HummuZ crispz are lighter-than-a-cracker and sturdier-than-a-chip, a good source of protein and are the perfect compliment to hummus or salsa. With only 120 calories in a 14 crispz serving, Gluten-Free certification and non-GMO verification, new HummuZ crispz 1 oz packs offer nutrition-minded consumers a great tasting, nutritious snack to conveniently take on the go.
