FERNDALE, WASH. – Moon Cheese unveiled that Crunchy Cheese Sticks are its newest line of 100% real cheese snacks.
For the launch of the shelf stable snacks, Moon Cheese is making them available in five flavors: Cheesy Does It, Wild White Chedda', Kick It Up a Nacho, Rowdy Ranch and Yum Inferno.
The crunchy nibbles contain 14-15 grams of protein per serving, which is four times more than leading cheese stick and puff snacks, per the brand. The Crunchy Cheese Sticks have three grams of carbohydrates and one or fewer grams of sugar per serving. The snacks are gluten free, keto friendly and made with rBST free cheese, without any artificial flavors.
"We're excited to release a breakthrough innovation for our Moon Cheese fans," said Brad Lahrman, chief executive officer of NutraDried Food Company, which owns the Moon Cheese trademark. "Cheese stick snacks have been loved by consumers for decades, and now we have a nutritionally better option for everyone to enjoy. Moon Cheese Crunchy Cheese Sticks meet the strict brand standard of our cheese snacks, which means made with 100% real cheese, packed with protein and low in carbs and sugar. We can't wait for consumers to find their favorite flavor."
Available nationally at Whole Foods Market locations, Moon Cheese’s latest snacks also will be sold online at the brand’s website this summer. For the launch, the spicy Yum Inferno flavor will be sold exclusively at Whole Foods Market stores. The Crunchy Cheese Sticks have an MSRP of $4.99.
