Sumseeds introduce three new flavors

BY Allison Cerra

SIOUX FALLS, N.D. Who says all sunflower seeds taste the same? Sumseeds, the first caffeinated and energized sunflower seeds on the market, have announced the distribution of three new flavors.

Sumseeds will now be available in dill pickle, honey BBQ and salt and pepper. The new flavors are currently available in stores nationwide in a personal sized bag (1.75 oz.).

Since their launch, Sumseeds has been endorsed by baseball hall-of-famer Tony Gwynn, and has also received industry praise for its packaging design.

Sumseeds, introduced to the world this past January, lay claim on being the only sunflower seeds that give consumers a “kick” of caffeine, ginseng, lysine and taurine in every bite. 

“Our customers can expect two things from Sumseeds,” said Tim Walter, Dakota Valley Products president.  “One, energy. Two, excellent taste, seed after seed. Now with our new flavors, our customers expect great taste from shell to nut.”

BY Allison Cerra

CHICAGO Just days after announcing the launch of new tropical flavors before the summer is officially over, the Wm. Wrigley Jr. Co. announced Wednesday that it is expanding its Extra gum brand by launching its new sugar free Supermint flavor, and improving the flavor of two other versions of the gum.

“Extra chewers enjoy variety and this brand offers a wealth of flavors that provide long-lasting chewing enjoyment,” said Paul Chibe, vice president of U.S. Marketing. “We believe the launch of supermint, as well as the improvements to peppermint and spearmint, will generate continued excitement around the Extra brand.”

According to AC Nielsen reports, 60 percent of total U.S. gum sales are generated from mint-flavored gum.

The new supermint flavor is set to hit shelves nationwide this fall.
