SPRINGDALE, ARK. — Tyson Foods, Inc. is expanding its breakfast offerings with the launch of Jimmy Dean casserole bites and wraps.
New Jimmy Dean Casserole Bites bake the classic dish into handheld, poppable bites that are ready in under a minute. They may serve as a quick and easy breakfast or as a midday snack or pick-me-up, the company said. The casserole bites are available in two savory varieties, meat lovers and sausage, egg and cheese, each containing 11 to 12 grams of protein and 190 to 200 calories. A sweet variety, French toast, contains 220 calories and 8 grams of protein.
Jimmy Dean Delights Breakfast Wraps offer high protein options for health-conscious consumers. The wraps are made with vegetables, turkey sausage or bacon, white cheddar cheese and whole scrambled eggs, wrapped into a whole wheat tortilla. They contain no artificial colors and preservatives and deliver 13 to 14 grams of protein, 17 grams of whole grains and 300 to 310 calories per serving. Varieties include spinach and bacon, turkey sausage and veggie, and southwest style.
“Breakfast plays a comforting role in people's lives and daily routines, especially as many of us continue to navigate new and changing schedules,” said Scott Glenn, senior director of marketing at Jimmy Dean. “We're proud to continue to provide quality products that meet the evolving needs of individuals and families.”
Jimmy Dean Casserole Bites come in 9-oz bags containing three servings per bag and Jimmy Dean Delights Breakfast Wraps come in four-packs. The products will launch in the frozen aisle at retail stores nationwide this fall.
