NEW YORK – Cheese snack manufacturer Whisps added to its Bites line with the arrival of Whisps Baked Cheese Bites and Buffalo-flavored Cheese & Pretzel Bites.
The company describes its Baked Cheese Bites as bite-sized versions of its cheese crisps, with 50-plus pieces of baked cheese and at least 10 grams of protein from 100% real cheese per 1-oz serving. The bites come in cheddar and parmesan flavors, with 1 gram of carbs and no sugar in each serving.
Whisps’ new Buffalo-flavored Cheese & Pretzel Bites are made with sharp cheddar and include 6 grams of protein and 1 gram of sugar.
"At Whisps, we believe you should nourish yourself and your family with options that fuel your body, not just fill your gut," said John Ghingo, the company’s chief executive officer. "New research from Mintel shows that a majority of shoppers are getting nourishment from snacks at least two to three times a day, with 25% of millennials and Gen Z snacking four-plus times a day. Our new Bites offerings prove that big things can come in bite-sized packages, particularly when it comes to satisfying salty cravings in a protein-packed, crunch-filled and deliciously bold way."
Ghingo said Whisps considers cheese to be more than just a flavor, calling it a real food ingredient with nutritional benefits.
"It provides real protein from a whole ingredient, solves salty snack cravings with bold flavors and provides a satiating crunch our fans can't get enough of,” he said.
The new products are being sold exclusively at Walmart stores and the Walmart website.
