Dole Stirs Up the Snack Category with Fruit Fusions
Inspired by Mintel data showing that 94 percent of adults snack at least once a day, with 15 percent snacking four or more times per day, Dole Packaged Foods LLC, is rolling out Dole Mixations. Available nationwide, these one-of-a-kind fruit fusions showcase imaginative combinations of smooth fruit sauces and juicy chunks of real fruit in four flavor pairings. They are: Apple-Raspberry Sauce with dices of apple, Apple-Strawberry Sauce with dices of apple, Peach-Apple Sauce with pineapple pieces and Pineapple-Mango Sauce with pineapple pieces.
This new fruit snack cup features non-GMO fruit, no high-fructose corn syrup and no artificial flavors. Plus, they are rich in vitamin C and naturally gluten-free. This information is boldly communicated on packages. In addition to kicking taste buds into high gear, Dole Mixations are designed to inspire creativity with whimsical lids that can be customized with drawings or personal messages for kids and loved ones. Each 4-oz. cup contains 70-80 calories, depending on variety. The cups are sold in four packs at a suggested retail price of $2.79.
