Food, Beverage & Nonfood Products 110 | Progressive Grocer | Ahead of What's Next | February 2017 Soup's On Campbell Soup Co. is bringing a fresh perspective to packaged soup, which has long been seen as overly processed and high in preservatives — attributes not too popular with today's health-conscious consumer. Souplicity is a line of chef- inspired refrigerated soups with short ingredient lists and unique, vegetable- forward flavor combinations. The organic, non-GMO and preservative-free soups come in four varieties: Roasted Red Pepper Tomato Gouda, Carrot Curry Ginger, Broccoli Parmesan Lemon and Corn Poblano Lime. The SRP for the soups is $5.99 per 17.6-ounce container. Bar Raised Responding to consumers' love of protein, simply made products and unique sweet-and-savory combinations, Krave Pure Foods Inc. has officially launched Krave Bars, available in four sweet-and- savory flavors that meld meat with quinoa and dried fruit: Chipotle Cherry Beef, Cranberry Thyme Turkey, Mango Jalapeño Pork and Wild Blueberry Beef. Each bar is made with simple ingredients and contains no gluten, added nitrites or artificial ingredients. The SRP is $2.89 per 1.25-ounce bar. Boozy Berries With so many variations on the traditional in the current craft cocktail craze, it's expected that the same would apply to gar- nishes. Enter Twisted Cherries' colossal, handpicked, USA-grown maraschino cherries infused with alcohol, which, at 6 percent ABV, can be consumed straight from the jar, added to cocktails, used in baking or employed as an "adult twist" to treats like ice cream sundaes. The product comes in three varieties: Island Rum, Original Cherry Bomb and Balls of Fire (cinnamon). Twisted Cherries come packaged in recycled-plastic containers with an SRP of $7.99 per 375-milliliter jar. Better Cheddar Pure, simple-ingredient products rule with many consumers today, as do better-for-you, protein-rich snacks. Understanding this, Schuman Cheese has expanded its all-natural line of Cello Whisps with a new cheddar vari- ety. The rBST-free, calcium-rich, and gluten- and wheat-free snacks provide 10 grams of protein and zero carbohy- drates per serving. They can be eaten out of the box, added to a salad or even placed atop an appetizer plate. The SRP is $4.49 per 2.12-ounce pack- age.
