Sargento Foods, Plymouth, Wis., said it released Sargento Balanced Breaks cheese and crackers snacks. These new products mark a new partnership between Sargento and Chicago-based Mondelez International that will combine eight Sargento natural cheese varieties with Ritz, Triscuit and Wheat Thins snack crackers to create a classic snack that is easy to enjoy at home, at work or on the go.
“We want to provide snackers with even more variety and convenience, and we know that fans of both Sargento and our partnership brands will have their taste buds ‘wowed’ by these new flavor combinations,” said Nikki Mamuric, director of marketing with Sargento Foods. “For more than 65 years, Sargento has led innovation in the cheese category, and we’re excited to add these products alongside existing favorites in our Balanced Breaks product line.”
According to Sargento, Balanced Breaks cheese and crackers comes in four combinations, each featuring between 7 and 9 grams of protein and up to 170 calories per serving. The varieties include pepper jack and colby jack natural cheeses and Ritz Mini crackers, Gouda and sharp cheddar natural cheeses and Triscuit Mini Original crackers, Monterey Jack and mild cheddar natural cheeses and Wheat Thins Mini Original snacks, low-moisture mozzarella and fontina natural cheeses and Wheat Thins Mini Sundried Tomato & Basil snacks.
Balanced Breaks cheese and crackers are available in packages of three convenient single-serve, 1.5-ounce snack trays. All varieties include a package lid with a cheerfully cheesy greeting. The snacks can be found online and in the refrigerated section at major retailers nationwide, Sargento said.
