CASHEWING IN ON THE NUT CRAZE
The nutologists at Diamond Foods are reinventing the cashew category with a line of bold flavored
cashews marketed under the San Francisco-based
company’s Emerald brand.
The four flavored varieties are: Dill Pickle,
Jalapeno, Sriracha and Salt & Pepper. Each combines the buttery crunch of Emerald Cashews with a
robust new flavor profile, say company officials.
The line is sold in 5.5-ounce stand-up resealable
bags with a suggested retail price of $3.95; 1.25-ounce
single-serve tubes with a suggested retail of 99-cents–
$1.19; and boxes of seven-count, 0.62-ounce 100-cal-
orie packs with a suggested retail price of $4.99.

Aloha Tropical Fruit
Hawaiian Host has introduced Tropical Fruit Bites, combining real tropi-
cal fruit centers covered in Hawaiian Host signature milk chocolate or
premium dark chocolate. Tropical Fruit Bites are available in three flavors:
Ripe Banana, Sweet Coconut and Savory Pineapple.
They are packaged in 6-ounce resealable bags with a suggested retail
price of $6.99-$7.99. Each bag contains approximately one cup of real
tropical fruit, half the recommended daily serving size of fruit for adults.
According to company officials, dried fruits are a good source of essential nutrients, dietary fiber and potassium, and have low sodium.
“Our product innovation specialists have been working hard to
develop the perfect combination of tropical fruit and chocolate to create
a great tasting and healthier treat,” says Keith Sakamoto, president and
CEO of Hawaiian Host, based in Honolulu. “Tropical Fruit Bites expands
our taste offerings while aligning perfectly with our brand. We are confident that it will become another fan favorite for locals and visitors.”
