Single-Serving Snack Packs
The ideal complement to cheeses, salads and soups now comes
in convenient single-serving snack packs. Available in Natural
and Whole Grain varieties, the 0.5-ounce snack packs join the
six varieties that are available in the popular 4.5-ounce packages: Natural, Sesame, Cracked Pepper, Rosemary, Lemon Zest
and Whole Grain. The new single-serving crackers are a low-calorie snack that can easily be stashed in a backpack, purse
or gift basket. The Whole Grain flavor contains only 35 calories,
0 grams of fat and 12 grams of whole grains while the Natural variety contains just 65 calories and 1 gram of fat. Each
snack pack contains 8 to 10 crackers packaged in a protective
cardboard sleeve and enclosed in a moisture-proof film, making it suitable for merchandising at soup and salad bars, cheese
displays and in the deli. The crackers are packaged in 144-unit
cases, including four flat reusable merchandising caddies that
highlight the healthy benefits of the crispbread crackers.
MSRP: $0.89 per snack pack
