Cold brew with milks and creamers

Chobani recently expanded its line of Greek yogurts, oat milks, probiotic drinks, and dairy and plant-based creamers with the launch of Chobani Coffee, a lineup of four ready-to-drink cold brew coffees enhanced with the company’s oat milks and dairy creamers.

Crafted from single origin 100% Arabica beans, the new coffees are available in Cold Brew Pure Black, which is free of sugar and dairy; Cold Brew with Sweet Creamer and Cold Brew with Vanilla, made with farm-fresh milk; and Cold Brew with Oatmilk, made with gluten-free oats. Each serving provides approximately 85 milligrams of caffeine, the equivalent of a standard cup of coffee.

The four Chobani Coffee cold brews are available at grocery and retail stores nationwide for a suggested retail price of $4.49 per 32-ounce multiserve container.

Pickle-flavored popcorn

The newest addition to Safe + Fair’s line of whole grain, allergy-friendly, non-GMO, gluten-free snacks is Dill Pickle Seasoned Popcorn. The savory flavor is the second in the company’s Seasoned Popcorn line, launched in December 2020 with Sea Salt. Both offerings are good options for consumers seeking healthy alternatives in a savory snack. Dill Pickle contains only 43 calories per cup and Sea Salt contains 47 calories.

Safe + Fair was founded in 2017 by Dave Leyrer and Pete Najarian, friends who were disappointed by the lack of food options for their kids with nut allergies. The duo sought to create products that were safe for and appealing to food-allergic kids, and that displayed clearly labeled information.

Dill Pickle Seasoned Popcorn can be found at for a suggested retail price of $5 per 7.5-ounce bag, with 3% of the proceeds going to the Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy & Asthma Research at Stanford University.

Lemon-based gourmet dressings

Lemonette, a women-owned certified (NWBOC) business, has introduced a line of lemon-based, Mediterranean-inspired salad dressings that are free of vinegar, sugar, and artificial colors and preservatives. Suitable for warm or cold salads, marinades, grilling sauces, cooking sauces, and more, the dressings are reduced in sodium and fat, and contain 50 calories or less per serving.

The keto-friendly, plant-powered product line, which focuses on fresh, homemade taste, is available in four flavors: Mediterranean Herb, Italian Herb, Lemon Garlic, and Zesty Cumin. The dressings provide a savory, lemon-based alternative to dressings made with vinegar, cream, or soy, and can be found at retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $4.99–$5.99.
