Frankly Fresh™, a Cedarlane® Natural Foods company, is revolutionizing hummus dips with a combination of fresh, unconventional flavors and all-natural ingredients. The brand is introducing Hummus Cocktails & Hummus Smoothies—garden-fresh, healthy, flavor-packed party dips—to an increasing number of grocers just in time for spring break, summer pool parties and more. Four flavors of Frankly Fresh’s new party products will debut this month at approximately 200 Albertsons® service delis throughout Southern California and Las Vegas, Nev.
Albertsons, part of Supervalu®, is offering two varieties of the non-alcoholic Frankly Fresh Hummus Cocktails product line, and two tasty options from the Hummus Smoothies line:
• Bloody Mary: infused with hints of tomato and celery;
• Dirty Martini: enhanced with pimento olives and sea salt;
• Four Berry Dip: bursting with strawberry, blueberry, raspberry and blackberry; and
• Tropical Mango Dip: made with mango, papaya and passion fruit.
Along with these four flavors, Frankly Fresh offers Hummus Cocktails in Pineapple Mojito, enlivened with an exhilarating splash of pineapple and mint; and Black Russian, perked up with ground espresso beans. Additional Hummus Smoothies selections include Green Tea Dip, featuring a refreshing undercurrent of green tea; and Strawberry Banana Dip, balancing vibrant strawberry with sweet, tropical banana.
The Frankly Fresh innovation doesn’t end with exceptional flavors. The company’s Hummus Cocktails & Smoothies are made healthier as well as tastier than many other party dips, according to a news release. All Hummus Cocktail & Smoothie varieties are created with all-natural ingredients, have fewer than 70 calories, 3g of sugar and 3.5g of fat per serving, are cholesterol free and contain 0g of saturated fat and trans fat.
In addition, Frankly Fresh also utilizes High Pressure Processing (HPP), a cutting-edge, USDA-approved technology to preserve freshness and flavor naturally. This improved method of food processing employs elevated water pressure instead of chemical preservatives and heat to protect against the introduction of harmful bacteria and loss of flavor over shelf time. HPP keeps Frankly Fresh Hummus Cocktails and Smoothies fresh on the shelf for up to 60 days.
