Company: Conagra Brands
Introduced: May 2022
Product Snapshot: Conagra Brands, Inc. is arriving at the National Confectioners Association's 2022 Sweets & Snacks Expo with an exciting variety of snack foods. Conagra's $2.9 billion snacking portfolio features iconic and emerging brands, dynamic licensed partnerships, and snack solutions to address nearly every craving. The Sweets & Snacks Expo is being held in Conagra Brands' hometown of Chicago from May 23–26.
"The Sweets & Snacks Expo is a great opportunity to connect with our customers and showcase the power of our snacking line-up," said Spencer Fivelson, VP/GM, snacks for Conagra Brands. "Across sweet treats, meat snacks, seeds, salty snacks, popcorn, and more, our brands are ready to stand out on shelf and at the Expo."
The Conagra Brands booth will offer a look at a suite of recent innovation that debuted last fall, along with top-selling favorites, including:
Slim Jim: Slim Jim is bringing a bold array of snacks to the Expo, headlined by the meaty wallop of Slim Jim Savage. These 3-oz. meat sticks, available in Original, Mild, and new Spicy, are the #1 innovation in all of meat snacks over the last three years, with nearly $40 million in sales.
Leveraging Slim Jim's position as the No. 1 impulse purchase meat snack brand, the new Slim Monster Short Boi is a .97-oz. meat stick the size of a candy bar that's specifically designed to be shelved at front end, near candy. Slim Jim fans can also enjoy the classic combo of meat and cheese with the new Slim Jim Original 'N Cheese Big Boss, which delivers 13g of protein per pack.
Conagra's full meat snacks portfolio also includes Duke's as well as Big Mama pickled sausage.
DAVID and BiGS Sunflower Seeds: With DAVID Seeds, America's #1 seed brand and BiGS Seeds, Conagra offers a winning combo within the sunflower seeds category. The BiGS flavor experts recently teamed up with the PIZZA! PIZZA! pros at Little Caesars, and the result was the new BiGS Little Caesars ExtraMostBestest Pepperoni Pizza Sunflower Seeds, a seed that truly delivers meaty, saucy, cheesy flavor.
ACT II and Angie's BOOMCHICKAPOP: ACT II, the top-selling value brand of microwave popcorn, has entered the ready-to-eat popcorn category with the flavor popcorn lovers crave most: Butter! New 1.7-oz. bags of ACT II Butter Lovers ready-to-eat popcorn is a snack that can be enjoyed on-the-go or while enjoying your favorite movie.
Angie's BOOMCHICKAPOP popcorn continues to fuel category growth with its consumer-loved Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn made with "Real Simple Ingredients. Nothing Fake."
Andy Capp's: The Andy Capp's salty snacks portfolio continues to spur strong category growth, and has expanded beyond its Hot Fries and Cheddar Fries. Andy Capp's Beer Battered Onion Rings are now available in 2-oz. bags of Original and a new Hot variety.
In addition to new products, Conagra Brands is also showcasing its collection of merchandising vehicles which enable optimal assortment, better placement, and improved product visibility to maximize impulse purchase.
