Food, Beverage & Nonfood Products 110 | Progressive Grocer | Ahead of What's Next | January 2017 Spiked Delight Taking a cue from both the spar- kling water craze and the various fruit-flavor mashups of its top players, Diageo has introduced Smirnoff Spiked Sparkling Seltzer to the malt beverage category. The line, a lighter alternative to tra- ditional malt beverages, consists of three varieties, Orange Mango, Cranberry Lime and Watermelon, each at 4.5 percent alcohol by vol- ume per 12-ounce can. All contain 90 calories per can and 1 gram of carbohydrates, with no sugar or artificial sweeteners. The SRP is $8.99 per 6-pack. w w These Spices Don't Run Many cereals flavored with cinnamon often end up bare, with the cinnamon flavoring washing away in milk soon after it's poured. This, however, isn't the case with the Kel- logg Co.'s latest cereal innovation, Kellogg's Cinnamon Frosted Flakes. To develop the new flavor, driven by demand from fans, the man- ufacturer created a truly "frosted" cinna- mon flake: Rather than dust the flakes with cinnamon, it put the spice within the flakes' coating. The cereal comes in two sizes: 13.6- and 26.8-ounce boxes, with respective SRPs of $4.69 and $5.79 each. w w Dairy to be Different For the consumer who wants to enjoy the benefits of yogurt but can't handle dairy or soy, Good Karma Foods has in- troduced a line of Dairy Free Yogurts made with flaxmilk. The spoonable yogurts — available in Blueberry, Strawberry, Raspberry, Vanilla and Plain varieties — contain 5 to 6 grams of plant-based protein, 800 milligrams of omega-3s, and seven live and active cultures in every serving. Additionally, they're free from all major allergens, including dairy, soy and tree nuts, and have an SRP of $1.69 to $1.99 per 6-ounce container. Be a Supper Superman Appealing to Americans who wish to rule the kitchen but lack the time to do so, Revolution Foods has entered the grocery aisle with Dinner Hero, a line of shelf- stable "speed-scratch" meal solutions enabling consumers to prepare and serve hot chef-created dinners without sacrificing nutrition. Dinner Hero combines whole grains, custom spice blends and sauces with easy-to-follow recipes. It comes in Coconut Curry, Sesame Garlic, Smoky Tomato Sausage and Fiesta Taco varieties, with an SRP of $5.99 per 10.2-ounce box.
