3 2 Store Brands / April 2016 / Special Report: Store Brands' Editors' Picks Food and Beverage Product Concepts Better-for-you mini sugar cookies Homefree LLC C reated by a clinical psychologist with a child who has multiple food allergies, these mini cookies are described as being free from the top eight allergens. In addition, they are a good source of whole grains, certified gluten-free, non-GMO Project Verified, low in sodium, kosher and vegan. Also noteworthy is the fact that the cookies' manufacturer is a certified "B Corp" for its strong commitment to social and environmental responsibility. All of that impressed us tasters, but the cookies' taste sealed our decision. "My favorite [product] of the day!" one taster exclaimed. "Great taste [and] size; perfect for kids to bring to school because of allergy-free policies," another said. PurPod100 compostable single-serve coffee pods Massimo Zanetti Beverage USA D escribed as the world's first 100 percent compostable single-serve coffee pods, the PurPod100 pods are made with all biomaterials and certified by the Biodegradable Products Institute. (Each pod's ring is actually made with biomaterial and reclaimed coffee chaff — the skin of the coffee bean that comes off during the roasting process!) The pods are compatible with all K-Cup brewing systems and are said to return valuable nutrients to the soil. We all thought the coffee inside the pods was pretty darn good as well. "Love the packaging and love the smoothness of the coffee," one taster stressed. "Love that the ring is made from the coffee bean skin," another put forth. Edible flavored bread bowls Better For You Foods LLC T hese petite, all-natural frozen bread bowls, available two to a package, come in four varieties: Multi-Grain, Wheat, Poppy Seed & Onion, and Cornmeal and Jalapeño. (Additional varieties are in development/ bread bowls also could be offered with heat-and-serve fillings such as chili, chowder, stew, dip and egg scrambles.) We loved the flavor twist in an all-natural format — and the fact that the bowls thaw quickly with the addition of hot fillings. "Tastes like an 'everything' bagel," one taster said of the Poppy Seed & Onion variety. "Great idea for something different," another said of the Cornmeal and Jalapeño variety. SB t f a P a p K a v t t p g t From concept to shelf, we continuously deliver award-winning unique flavor experiences for your shoppers.
