PHOENIX – Fresh Cravings is stretching beyond the salsa category with a new line of plant-based, dairy-free dips in savory and sweet flavor profiles.
Made with almonds or cashews, Fresh Cravings Organic Plant-Based Dips are vegan, gluten-free and include ingredients such as coconut aminos, chia and hemp. Savory flavors include spicy garlic almond dip, dill cashew dip, zesty ranch cashew dip, Kickin’ Queso style cashew dip, creamy garlic almond dip and Smokehouse almond dip, all of which are available at Walmart stores. The Kickin’ Queso, creamy garlic and Smokehouse varieties also come in U.S.D.A.-certified organic varieties sold at Publix locations, along with two sweet flavors: organic creamy vanilla cashew dip and organic chocolate mousse cashew dip.
“We believe that plant-based foods are not a trend; it’s a shift in consumer preference and is moving to become a lasting part of the American culinary lifestyle,” said Jay Whitney, president of Fresh Cravings parent company FoodStory Brands. “Until now, Fresh Cravings has been known as a refrigerated salsa brand, and this launch positions us as a significant player in the growing plant-based food space. We pushed ourselves to accelerate our innovation process as we see tremendous opportunity to deliver healthier alternatives at highly competitive prices to all consumers.”
