Dove blends mango, dark chocolate in sorbet line
Dove Chocolate, which is part of the Mars Wrigley Confectionery portfolio of brands, is adding an extra dose of sweetness to their line of sorbet bars. The company paired fruit and chocolate together in the newly launched Dove Mango Sorbet with Dark Chocolate.
Joining the increasingly popular trend of fruit and chocolate pairings, this new launch combines Dove’s signature chocolate with the tropical taste of mangoes for a guilt-free treat, the Hackettstown, N.J.-based company said.
“Taking a cue from growing interest in fruit and chocolate snacking combinations, we are excited to add this new flavor combination to our Dove Ice Cream and Sorbet range,” Emily Strobel, marketing director of Mars Ice Cream, said. “Our fans love the signature silky smooth chocolate from Dove, and now, by adding the taste of tropical mangoes, they will have the opportunity to enjoy a new, satisfying and refreshing treat.”
Dove’s Mango Sorbet Bar with Dark Chocolate is now available for purchase in drug, mass and grocery stores nationwide in a box of six 2-oz. bars that retail for $4.99.
Reynolds launches quick cut plastic wrap
Reynolds is expanding its portfolio to include more than just the aluminum foil that has become synonymous with the brand.
The Lake Forest, Ill.-based company is launching the Reynolds Kitchens Quick Cut Plastic Wrap, which contains several innovative features as:
- A built-in slide cutter to ensure a clean cut;
- The starter edge, which makes it easy to find the start of the roll;
- Ensuring each roll is automatically held in place, to avoid it from jumping out of the packaging during dispensing; and
- A long-lasting seal to keep food fresh.
“When we found out how many people were unhappy with their plastic wrap experience, we knew we had to find a solution,” Danielle Chandler, senior marketing director at Reynolds Consumer Products, said. “At Reynolds Kitchens, we think our latest innovation is a win worth celebrating in a big way … and what better way to celebrate than with the world’s shortest victory song?”
To showcase the ease of the product’s built-in slide cutter, Reynolds tapped Emmy-award winning composer Jeff Russo to write a song. The custom-composed track can be heard across all of the company’s social media channels and in a video clip titled “Tiniest Victory.”
The Kitchens Quick Cut Plastic Wrap is currently available for purchase nationally in mass, grocery and online retailers for the suggested retail price of $3.99 for a 225 sq.-ft. role. Further information can be found on the company’s website.
