Pinnacle Foods has expanded
its Wish-Bone salad dressing

and features a higher amount of
extra virgin olive oil than most
mainstream dressings, according to Pinnacle officials, is high
in antioxidants and contains
beneficial fatty acids, as well as
vitamins E and K. Wish-Bone
E.V.O.O. is available in five unique
varieties, developed through
culinary research and consumer
exploration: Garlic Basil Italian, Roasted
Red Pepper, Lemon Herb, Sundried
Tomato and Caesar Vinaigrette.
According to Pinnacle officials, the
restaurant-inspired dressings combine
Wish-Bone’s restaurant heritage with
full-flavored ingredients for an at-home
indulgent dining experience featuring
unique combinations of artisan
cheeses, herbs and oils. Wish-
Bone Ristorante Italiano is avail-
able in four varieties: Signature
Italian, Creamy Peppercorn
Caesar, Garlic Parmesan
Vinaigrette and Roasted Garlic
All are packaged in 12-ounce
plastic bottles with a suggested

“We want to make high-
quality ingredients and gourmet
flavors available and affordable
in the mainstream salad dress-
ings category,” says Mark Schiller,
N.J. “Consumers are looking to make
the best salads, and having the best
salad dressings made with the best
ingredients helps them achieve that.”

TIME TO CHAI IN
Chai has become one of the most popular items ordered in coffee
houses and tea shops, and now it has found a home in the supermarket
coffee aisle thanks to Starbucks and its TAZO Chai Latte K-Cup Packs.
TAZO Classic Chai Latte K-Cup Packs contain black tea, creamy
milk and honey blended with spicy ginger, fragrant cardamom and
black pepper. TAZO Vanilla
Caramel Chai Latte K-Cup
Packs feature classic chai,
black tea and vanilla caramel flavors. Both are available in 6-count boxes with a
suggested retail price of $9.99
and 9-count boxes with a suggested retail price of $12.99.
The lattes are easy to prepare. Consumers simply open an instant
cream and sweetener pouch, place it in their cup and then put the
K-Cup with the tea in their Keurig or compatible home brewer.
Starbucks, based in Seattle, has also introduced both flavors in a
convenient liquid concentrate. Packaged in quart aseptic cartons with
a suggested retail of $3.99, consumers simply mix them with milk and
enjoy either hot or cold. Both flavors are also available in TAZO tea
bags with a suggested retail of $3.99 for a 20-count box.
