NEW YORK – Cheese crisps brand Whisps announced it is adding to its cheesy snack portfolio with the introduction of Whisps Cheese & Pretzel Bites.

The new snacks are made with 100% real, aged parmesan and cheddar cheeses that come from four family dairy farms.

Whisps’ latest innovation, which also features clean label pretzels, comes in three flavors: cheddar, honey mustard and everything.

"Whisps built its foundation on clean snacks with 100% real, artisanal cheese at its core, and with Whisps Cheese & Pretzel Bites, we're furthering our commitment to putting actual cheese back in artificial 'cheez' snacks," said John Ghingo, chief executive officer of Whisps. "The pretzel-and-cheese combination isn't new, but what is new is our obsession with bringing real cheese to the pretzel category.”

The company shared that it worked on its combination of pretzels and cheese recipe for years before rolling out the new products, which include 7 grams of protein and 0 grams of sugar per serving.

The cheddar and honey mustard varieties of Whisps Cheese & Pretzel Bites became available for the first time on National Pretzel Day, April 26. They can be purchased at Kroger locations and through Amazon for a suggested retail price of $4.49 per 2.5 oz pouch. The everything flavor will become available in the weeks ahead.
