GREEN BAY, WIS. — BelGioioso Cheese Inc. is expanding its line of La Bottega di BelGioioso brand snacks with new Artigiano Gourmet Snacks and Crumbles in Balsamic & Cipolline and Vino Rose flavors.
Artigiano is hand-crafted and aged to achieve its distinct flavor, aroma and fine crystalline texture, BelGioioso said. The new enrobed Gourmet Snack Cheeses are individually wrapped for a convenient 80-calorie on-the-go snack. The new 8-oz Crumbled Twist Tie Bags are a gourmet option for flavor enhancements on pastas, salads or soups.
“We are seeing flavored cheeses growing faster (snacking cheeses are over 10% of specialty cheese sales) than the overall specialty cheese category and snacking continues to be a traffic driver as well,” said Sean Moran, vice president of BelGioioso sales. “Artigiano’s exceptional award-winning quality and unique flavors have been well received by consumers. These new snack sizes and crumbles are sure to stand out in the deli case.”
BelGioioso Gourmet Snacks and Crumbles retail for $3.99-$5.99.
