Hummus with Chicken Packs in the Protein
Consumer interest in convenient and healthy meals and snacks is at an all-time high. New Hummus Plus from Grecian Delight, a division of Pure Mediterranean Foods, is a first-of-its-kind hummus paired with seasoned chicken. Available in five flavor combinations — Garlic Hummus + Chipotle Chicken Breast, Garlic Hummus + Garlic Herb Chicken Breast, Roasted Red Pepper Hummus + BBQ Seasoned Chicken Breast, Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus + Oven Roasted Chicken Breast and Traditional Hummus + Oven-Roasted Chicken Breast — the hummus and fully cooked chicken slices come packaged in separate containers held together by a cardboard overwrap. The consumer simply mixes together and enjoys. Each 8-oz. pack contains 24-28g of protein and 10-12g of fiber, depending on variety.
Inspired by the Mediterranean diet and made with no artificial flavors or colors, Hummus Plus can be merchandised with other grab-and-go foods, ready-to-eat salads and hummus. Consumer testing was positive on the product as well as the two-component packaging, which is both reusable and microwavable, according to the company. Additionally, the included utensil and napkin make for easy, on-the-go eating, which was very well received by shoppers.
