66 | Progressive Grocer | Ahead of What's Next | September 2016 2016 Editors' Picks Food Lala Yogurt s moothies $3.19/4-pack We were impressed by these smoothies from Borden's Lala brand, which hit stores last January. The surprise favorite was Vanilla Almond Cereal, which offers the rich flavor of vanilla beans and almonds. The taste and texture were quite enjoyable — we never thought we'd like drinking our cereal! It's definitely a plus for busy folks on the go: a convenient, single-serve dose of protein and calcium. The smoothies also come in Pomegranate Blueberry and Cherry Vanilla flavors. Further, Lala built a clever campaign around its cultured products, promoting their role in an active, healthy lifestyle via social media with the hashtag #yogurting. Litehouse o padipitity Greek Yogurt d ip — s picy Asiago Artichoke $3.99 Litehouse has put a healthy and welcome spin on a popular dip variety with the introduction of Greek yogurt- based Opadipity Spicy Asiago Artichoke Dip. This better- for-you item is made from low-cal Greek yogurt spiced with real artichokes blended with asiago cheese and a nice jalapeño kick, for just 60 calories per 2-tablespoon serving. Other Greek yogurt dip varieties include Greek Olive, Cucumber Dill and Cinnamon Swirl. Lorissa's k itchen Premium Protein s nacks $5.99/ 2.25-ounce bag Named for the wife of Jack Link's CEO, Lorissa's Kitchen aims to reach beyond the stereotype truck driver/sports dude image of most jerky products. To be sure, the demographics of meat snack consumers break more evenly by gender than most folks think. This product line breaks new ground beyond its packaging image: It's one of the first widely available protein snack to use responsibly raised proteins, including 100 percent grass-fed beef and antibiotic-free chicken. Also, its four flavors are definitely on-trend: Korean Barbecue, Ginger Teriyaki, Sweet Chili and Szechuan Peppercorn.
