WALNUT CREEK, CALIF. — Del Monte Foods, Inc. is expanding its snacking portfolio with Fruit Crunch Parfaits, a new line of non-dairy parfaits.
New Fruit Crunch Parfaits are made with coconut creme, which provides the “flavor, texture and richness of yogurt,” Del Monte said. Each 6.25-oz cup contains a full serving of fruit and includes 2 billion probiotics, 180 to 200 calories and 18 to 20 grams of sugar. The parfaits come with a honey oat granola topping and are available in mango, strawberry, blueberry, and pineapple coconut flavors.
“We envisioned Fruit Crunch Parfait as a reinvented classic that is ideal for the wellness-minded consumer striving toward balancing great taste, nutrition and convenience,” said Liam Farrell, vice-president of brand marketing for Del Monte Foods. “We’re thrilled to expand our presence in the refrigerator aisle with a non-dairy — yet deliciously crave-worthy — product, something you can feel good about eating. Here at Del Monte, we’re always monitoring industry trends and we firmly believe that Fruit Crunch Parfait delivers on what consumers are looking for.”
Fruit Crunch Parfaits are the second addition to Del Monte Foods’ new snacking innovation platform to be released this year. In August, the company debuted Bubble Fruit, which combined its classic fruit cups with boba.
Del Monte plans to release further developments in the coming months, the company said, as it continues to “diversify outside the canned food aisle and into the snack, refrigerator and frozen aisles of grocery store.”
