Hormel Natural Choice expands snacking portfolio

Hormel Natural Choice wants to change the way consumers snack.

The Austin, Minn.-based company announced the launch of two new products that have been inspired by global, bold flavors and offer a new way to snack.

New additions include the Mediterranean style chicken, paired with bruschetta jack cheese, and garlic and herb pita chips; and the chipotle chicken, paired with queso quesadilla cheese and flaxseed corn chips.

"Our new Hormel Natural Choice snacking products combine delicious, on-trend flavors with quality, 100% natural deli meat," Lisa Austin, brand manager at Hormel Foods said. "Additionally, the portion-controlled, on-the-go snacks are convenient and include 10 g or more of protein, qualities that remain important to our consumer's evolving snack preferences."

Both of the new launches from Hormel are available in 2-oz. packs that retail from $1.50 to $2 at select retailers nationwide.
