Last fall Xyience Energy Foods
relaunched its energy drink product,
which included a new look and positioning. Now the brand, a subsidiary of
Austin, Texas-based soft drink manufacturer Big Red, since November 2014,
is branching out with Xyience High
Protein Low Sugar Energy Bars.
According to company officials,
Xyience High Protein Low Sugar Energy
Bars have 20-grams of protein and are
made from ancient grains quinoa, ama-
ranth and rolled oats. The chocolate
enrobed bars are low sugar (1-gram),
soy- and gluten-free, non-GMO, made
with all-natural ingredients and feature
Sustamine, a natural supplement that
works on multiple levels to sustain an
athlete’s body for optimal performance.
The 2.4-ounce bars are available in
three initial flavors: Chocolate Peanut
Butter, Chocolate Mint and Chocolate
Crunch, with a suggested retail price of
2 for $5.00.
“We are extremely excited about introducing these truly unique and great tasting bars,” says Jeff Wagoner, president of
Xyience Energy Foods.

ConAgra Foods has expanded
its P.F. Chang’s Asian frozen foods
line with P.F. Chang’s Signature
Pork & Chicken Dumplings.
The recipes for the dumplings
are based on the P.F. Chang’s
Restaurant and co-developed
with the restaurant chain’s co-
founder Philip Chiang. Officials
with Omaha, Neb.-based ConAgra say the dumplings will
bring more innovation to the brand’s appetizers line to give
consumers more options when bundling appetizers to com-
plement the rich flavors of the line’s skillet meals.
Crafted like a traditional Chinese dumpling, these all-new
dumplings are made using the customary pork shoulder, suc-
culent dark meat chicken and offer a high meat-to-vegetable
ratio. Even the dumpling wrapper is rolled to a similar thick-
ness as a homemade dumpling to ensure a chewy wrapper.
Each variety is available in an 8-count, 8.2-ounce box. The
suggested retail price is $3.49.
