Kitchenware News & Housewares Review Show Daily 4 9 Monday, March 4, 2019 Loacker Introduces Quadratini Matcha Welcome to Japan's volcanic hills, the cradle of the noble green tea. Close your eyes and take a deep breath; can you smell its scent already? Loacker introduces its latest creation: Quadratini Matcha, filled with a cream of unsur- passable goodness! A light layer of Matcha cream filling is enclosed between two light and crispy wafer lay- ers, delivering a refined and bold taste. For true connoisseurs of the luxuries in life, it's time to treat yourself to pure bliss! Over time, the family business, founded by Alfons Loacker in 1925 in Bolzano, Italy, has developed from a small regional pastry shop to a globally known brand with products that delight people in more than 100 countries. Despite its internationalization, Loacker focuses on sustainable, envi- ronmentally friendly and fair business strategies. The production sites for its wafer and chocolate specialties lie in the heart of the Dolomites, in the midst of pristine nature, where the water is fresh and pure. Its products are made using state-of-the-art technology, but still according to old family traditions, love and care. It is surrounded by beau- ty, which inspires the best, most genuine things. The secret that makes Loacker so irresistible and globally successful requires a lot of experience. With dedica- tion and an unerring eye, the company devotes itself to the careful selection of the raw ingredients: Italian hazelnuts grown in its fields in Tuscany, real Bourbon vanilla pods, pure chocolate, sun-ripened raspberries, hand-picked blueberries, the finest cocoa, according to its own recipes and fresh mountain water. The company always bears in mind what is most important: the natu- ralness and authenticity of its products. This is guaranteed by the com- pany's philosophy: Loacker expressly rejects the use of col- orings, preservatives, added fla- vorings and hydrogenated fats. Its biggest aim is to embed the Loacker brand in the hearts and minds of every consumer in the world, as a synonym for unique quality and wholesome natural goodness. It is the company's permanent challenge to continuously develop the essential benefits of the brand in this way and to deliver sus- tained added value. For more information, go to www.loackerusa.com. Salami Snacks Gaining Popularity Traditionally, the meat snack category has been dominated by jerky and pepper- oni, but as consumer tastes evolve, it seems as if they are demanding more from their snacks. Consumers are more health conscious than ever, and are living busy on-the-go lifestyles. At the same time, they are not willing to sacrifice taste when they snack. These factors have left brands racing to keep up and provide new, innovative options. Delivering an elevated snacking experience, Black Kassel Salami Whips™ are the newest option for shelf- stable meat snacks, available in formats that suit on-the-go lifestyles. The brand's premium dry aged salamis, known for their unique shapes like the heart-shaped D'Amour salami, have long been fea- tured in service delis – and now con- sumers can enjoy the same legendary taste in convenient pre-packaged, portable formats. Crafted according to authentic European recipes, which include natural- ly cold smoking and dry-aging tech- niques, Salami Whips offer a unique flavor profile and a soft, tender bite, all while delivering 8 grams of pro- tein per serving. They also stand out on shelf, as the whip format is eye-catching and unique, and the medieval-inspired branding conveys a premium experi- ence. Since launching in late 2017, the consumer acceptance has been impressive. "Retailers are seeing lots of success with these products. Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive," says Dave Brandow, Director of International Sales for the brand. "Since they do not require refrigeration, they are able to be merchandised any- where," Brandow continues. "Retailers love that flexibility, and once the consumers taste the product, they can't get enough." The products are available in two varieties: Old Forest and Picante. Old Forest harkens back to the brand's Germanic roots, delivering a well-balanced flavor, while Picante delivers the heat and spice that many meat snack con- sumers crave. SuckerPunch Gourmet Introduces Five New Pickle Spears In step with its motto, "Big Taste That Packs A Punch," SuckerPunch Gourmet is excited to announce the addition of five new pickle spears to its product line.
