THE PERFECT POTATO
As consumers move toward fresh
alternatives for saturated fat-rid-den frozen fries, MountainKing
has introduced its Steakhouse
Roasters—a slender, thin skinned,
tubular-shaped fresh potato variety.
Known within the produce indus-
try as “fingerlings,” MountainKing has
re-invented this specialty potato with
a new name and new packaging to
attract younger, more health-conscious consumers looking to re-create a dish
commonly found in high-end steakhouses.
MountainKing’s Steakhouse Roasters, which the company showcased at the
Viva Fresh Expo, should be merchandised in the fresh produce department and
on secondary displays near the meat case, say officials for the Houston-based
company. The product’s packaging offers simple preparation instructions printed
directly on the bag. Each 1.5-pound bag offers eight to 10 servings and is available for a suggested retail price of $2.97.

Wholly Guacamole has introduced three guacamole-based Layered Dips
to its product portfolio. The brand sampled the plant-based innovations—
available in Black Bean over Guacamole, Roasted Corn over Guacamole
and Spicy Pico over Guacamole varieties—at the Viva Fresh Expo in
Austin, Texas, in April.
“Interesting flavors and real ingredients continue to drive consumer inter-
est, and our tasty line of Layered Dips offers shoppers a convenient, new way
to enjoy and share their favorite guacamole with others,” says Terrill W. Bacon,
senior brand manager for the Wholly Guacamole brand at Austin, Minn.-
based MegaMex Foods. “We’re putting a new spin on the Wholly Guacamole
brand by pairing it with complementary layers of great-tasting, real ingredi-
ents. Like all our foods, with no need for mashing or prep, there’s no hassle or
fuss—just open the cup and let the snacking begin.”
Black Bean over Guacamole Layered Dip features black beans that provide
protein and fiber in a simple, yet savory flavor, while the Roasted Corn over
Guacamole variety contains a smoky combination of roasted corn and chunky
guacamole with a hint of heat. Spicy Pico over Guacamole Layered Dip pro-
vides a zesty flavor topped with fresh pico de gallo. The product line, available
for a suggested retail price of $2.99-$3.49, is made with hand-scooped Hass
avocados and is gluten-free and kosher certified.
