BelGioioso Introduces New Snacking Fontina, Mini Mascarpone and Mini Ricotta BelGioioso Cheese, Inc. is introducing three new items that meet consumer's needs for indi- vidual sized, portion-controlled snacks. "Following on the heels of our enormously popular Fresh Mozzarella Snacking Cheese, we decided to expand the line to include a Fontina Snacking Cheese," states Sean Moran, Vice President of Sales. "At just 70 calories, its mild, buttery flavor truly brings a smile with every bite." In addition to the Fontina Snacking Cheese, BelGioioso has created a 3-ounce Mini Mas- carpone™ cup designed for freshness and con- venience and a 5-ounce Mini Ricotta™ single-serve cup. "The Mini Mascarpone and Mini Ricotta are petite sized cups of our all-natural, award-win- ning cheeses, offering freshness, convenience and portion control for the consumer," says Moran. "The cheese is packed with protein and calcium and offers a healthier alternative to tra- ditional snacks." As with all BelGioioso cheeses, the new of- ferings are made using traditional Italian cheesemaking methods. They are all-natural, rBST-free, gluten-free and contain no gums or fillers. The Mini Mascarpone cups are a perfect size for a healthier spread option, with each serving at nearly half the calories of butter. The Mini Ricotta cups pro- vide an individual serving of 16 grams of protein and 60 percent of the daily value in calcium and is packaged for use as a single serve breakfast option with fresh fruit and granola, or as a fresh, creamy dip for vegetables. Each mini portion of the Fontina Snacking Cheese is full of flavor and has only 70 calories. Individual packages are printed with the BelGioioso signature snacking smile logo. Protein continues to be top of mind for con- sumers in relation to satiety, weight manage- ment and sustained energy with 51 percent of consumers seeking out protein rich snacks for their daily diets. With the key drivers of snack- ing occasions being time, convenience, health, portion control and exploration, BelGioioso's new Snacking and Mini protein rich cheeses provide a delicious and flavorful snack choice. The 70-calorie Fontina Snacking Cheese contains three cubes, pack- aged into individual 0.75-ounce packages and available in 6-ounce retail bags packed 10 per case. The 3-ounce Mini Mascarpone cups are packed 18 cups per case, while the 5-ounce Mini Ricotta cups are packed 12 per case.
