La Panzanella Artisanal Foods Co. introduces Croccantini Bites, ideal for today’s on-the-go generation seeking healthy, natural and palate-pleasing snacks. The new Croccantini Bites will launch in June with three bold flavors and a newly-designed 4.75-ounce re-sealable, stand-up pouch at a suggested retail price of $3.99.

The new Croccantini Bites are based on La Panzanella’s original recipe, but add baked-in, natural herbs and finished with a light seasoning on top. The new crackers are truly bite-sized and about half the size of the company’s popular Croccantini Minis.

Italian Herb – a perfect blend of Italian flavors inspired by a fresh herb garden

Sundried Tomato & Basil – the warm flavor of sundried tomatoes balanced with the sweetness of basil

Spicy Olive – a savory, olive flavor with spicy red pepper adding a touch of heat

“La Panzanella is delighted to introduce our new Croccantini Bites that are right on target with the latest trends in healthy snacking and consumers’ growing desire for bold, spicy flavors,” said Paul Pigott, CEO of La Panzanella. “In creating the new Bites, we remained true to our original recipe and the hand-crafted nature of our product using only natural, wholesome ingredients. Our customers have come to love the unique crunch and texture of our Croccantini crackers and now they get all of that plus new exciting flavors in a snacking format.”

The Croccantini Bites stand-up, pouch-style packaging provides grocery, convenience and specialty food stores flexibility in merchandising the product. The product can easily be displayed on shelves, wire racks, baskets or temporary shipper displays. In addition, the Croccantini Bites packaging has a brand new look-and-feel with a bright-colored banner sweeping the front of the package to designate each flavor and a window to view the product, designed to draw the attention of shoppers. The package is also re-sealable to preserve freshness and deliver customer convenience.

La Panzanella will be exhibiting its full line of artisanal crackers, including the new Croccantini Bites, at the Deli-Dairy-Bake Expo June 5-7 in Houston (booth #1245), and the Fancy Food Show June 25-27 in New York City (booth #461).
