Product Snapshot: Mount Franklin Foods, a manufacturer of high-quality confections, mints, nut products and nutritional gummies, has announced the debut of Brewhouse Legends, distinctive snack nut mixes inspired by the innovation of craft-brewers who develop flavors with a twist from the ordinary. With the snack mix category growing nearly 5 percent year-over-year (IRI 52 weeks ending 12/31/17), Brewhouse Legends is poised to raise the bar on snacking. Pub-inspired flavors in unique snack nut mixes are crafted to complement a variety of individual styles and tastes. Brewhouse Legends is debuting at NACS 2018 and is available to ship to retail as of mid-October 2018.
“Our research revealed that consumers loved the robust flavors, and our retail partners have been overwhelmingly positive as we have premiered Brewhouse Legends in meetings,” said Gary Ricco, president and CEO of Mount Franklin Foods. “We took great care in crafting these snack nut mixes. We dialed up the flavor quotient and mixed in some popular snack ingredients with unique and different flavor cues. The result is a step-up snack mix that will appeal to the consumer and their sense of discovery.”
Launching with three distinct flavor options, Brewhouse Legends is available in 5 oz and 30 oz stand up bags, as well as single serve pouches and bulk for foodservice.
