Clio Snacks, Piscataway, N.J., unveiled three new additions to its refrigerated handheld bar portfolio: Chocolate Greek yogurt bars, Vanilla less sugar yogurt bars and Vanilla Almond granola & yogurt parfait bars. Clio Snacks says it is also expanding its distribution into Kroger stores for the first time, with three core bar flavors hitting store shelves nationwide in 1,200 doors in March.
All three new bar varieties combine the benefits of pure, strained whole milk Greek yogurt — which is high in protein and probiotics — with Clio’s signature cheesecake-like texture and decadent chocolate or almond butter coating. Additionally, all three bars are Certified Gluten Free, and the Vanilla less sugar Greek yogurt bars are keto-friendly, Clio Snacks says.
The Chocolate Greek yogurt bars are crafted with chocolate Greek yogurt and a melt-in-your-mouth chocolatey coating, Clio Snacks says. Each serving contains 8 grams of protein and 150 calories. The Vanilla less sugar Greek yogurt bars feature vanilla Greek yogurt and taste like an indulgent dessert, but have only 100 calories and 1 gram of sugar. And the Vanilla Almond granola & yogurt parfait bars are crafted with a crunchy layer of cranberry almond granola and a decadent almond butter coating. Each bar has 210 calories and contains 10 grams of protein.
“We are delighted to introduce three innovative snacking solutions to our growing portfolio of handheld Greek yogurt bars,” says John McGuckin, CEO of Clio Snacks. “The snacking trend has emerged as an incremental and dynamic force within refrigerated CPG, and our goal is to provide delicious solutions which deliver on the promise of guiltless indulgence. With the nutritional profile of Greek yogurt, these new bars are the perfect choice for all dayparts. From crunchy breakfast parfaits to afternoon cravings to lower sugar options, Clio’s portfolio is an anytime, anywhere, hand-held snacking sensation … no spoons allowed.”
