Food, Beverage & Nonfood Products 94 | Progressive Grocer | Ahead of What's Next | December 2016 Step Aside, Sriracha Dubbed the "next sriracha" by many, the spicy Korean condiment gochu- jang can provide a new kick to dips and sauces, which have seen more than their fair share of products containing the ubiquitous Thai chili sauce. Understanding this, Korean manufacturer Bibigo has added two sauces to its lineup: Gochujang Mayo Sauce and Gochujang Barbecue Sauce. Both are made from gochujang, a fermented paste traditionally made from red chili peppers, soybeans and glutinous rice, offering a balance of sweet, savory and spicy flavors. Gochujang Mayo Sauce, with an SRP of $5.50 per 9.3-ounce bottle, is a rich, creamy twist on mayonnaise, which Gochu- jang Barbecue Sauce, with an SRP of $5.50 per 11.5-ounce bottle, is bold, smoky and spicy. Energy for Now — and Later With Americans' busier-than-ever schedules, beverages that give lon- ger-lasting energy boosts are critical to getting through the day. Avitae USA LLC's Zum XR by Avitae line of lower-calorie energy drinks features time-release beads with caffeine that provide long-term energy to imbib- ers. The all-natural beverages offer an initial caffeine boost equivalent to that from one-and-a-half cups of coffee (125 milligrams) before the beads slowly release another boost of the same strength. They contain 70 calories per can and come in three flavors: Orange, Mixed Berry and Lemon Lime. The line's SRP is $2.99 per 12-ounce PET can. Protein-powered Popcorn Bagged pre-popped popcorn is all the rage these days, appealing to those who want a mid- day treat that isn't high in calories. But what if that snack could also keep you feeling full longer? Ips Snacks has answered that question with Ips Pop, said to be the first and only protein popcorn on the market. Made with non-GMO corn and whey protein, the all-natural nosh contains 150 calories and 5 grams of protein per serving. Available in two fla- vors, White Cheddar and Classic Salted, the popcorn has an SRP of $1.49 for a single-serve package and $3.49 for a 5-ounce bag. Go Beyond Greek Heralded by many as the next Greek yogurt, skyr is a yogurt- like, low-fat, high-protein dairy product unique to Iceland. Said to be the only line of traditional Ice- landic skyr products available in the United States, Icelandic Provisions' own skyr offers six flavors: Plain, Vanilla, Strawberry with Lingon- berry, Blueberry with Bilberry, Peach with Cloudberry, and Coconut and Raspberry. The product is made with heirloom skyr cultures for a creamy texture and mild taste. Each 5.3-ounce cup, containing 14 to 17 grams of protein and just 1.5 percent fat, has an SRP range of $1.69-$1.99.
