Skeeter Snacks Launches New, Nut-Free Granola Alternative that School Kids and School Administrators Will LoveJuly 12, 2016 in Company News
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., July 11, 2016 – Skeeter Snacks LLC, maker of Allsome! and Skeeter Nut Free cookies and grahams, today announced the introduction of Allsome! Cinnamon Bitz – a nut-free granola alternative with a crunchy cinnamon flavor that kids and school administrators alike will love as a safe and delicious solution for school breakfast, lunch or snacking.
“Taste tests show a crunchy cinnamon flavor is overwhelmingly chosen by elementary and middle school children over the darkened appearance and tough taste profile of traditional granola,” said Matt Blackmon, vice president of foodservice sales for Skeeter Snacks. “School directors will find Allsome! Cinnamon Bitz financially more cost-effective than granola, and it is a perfect complement to yogurt and parfaits for school breakfast, lunch or a la carte, as an added grain for school salad bars, and as a delicious grab-N-go item.”
Allsome! and Skeeter Nut Free products are great-tasting, wholesome snacks made from whole grains and natural ingredients – with no artificial preservatives, high fructose corn syrup, or trans fats – all the while making meals and snacks safer for those with nut allergies by eliminating peanuts and tree nuts. All Allsome! and Skeeter Nut Free products meet the nutritional requirements of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kid Act for inclusion in school nutrition programs as a whole grain and are served in schools across the country.
About Nut Allergies
Sadly, there hasn’t always been an easy, go-to meal solution or snack for schools that tastes great to all kids while being tree and peanut free, and it often forces nut-allergic children to exclude themselves from eating where groups get together – like school classrooms, lunchrooms and during class trips.
By removing only nuts from its list of ingredients, Allsome! and Skeeter Nut Free products are affordable and tasty as all cookies, grahams and snacks should be … making them perfect not only for nut-allergic children, but for ALL school children.
About Skeeter Snacks
Jacksonville, Fla.-based Skeeter Snacks was founded by two fathers of nut-allergic children frustrated by the lack of great-tasting, safe snacks for their families. The company’s mission is to create foods that are readily available, loved by all and ensure safety and inclusion for people with nut allergies. All Skeeter Snacks products are made in a dedicated nut-free facility with an audited nut-free supply chain, and each production run is tested internally and by third parties before being released for distribution. Skeeter Nut Free chocolate chip mini cookies are available as a complimentary offering in the JetBlue Airways snack basket, seen and enjoyed by millions of JetBlue passengers annually.
