Sweeten your everyday!

Retail Runway: July 2018

Summer is absolutely nothing without onions. Maybe that’s too bold of a statement to make, but I’m sticking to it. Barbecue, salads, tacos—you name it, I’ll want onions on it. Country Sweet Produce is answering my onion siren call with its latest Bako Sweet® sweet onion bag, and it’s sure to catch the eye of any shopper. With striking purple hues and a green-and-orange logo creating a colorful palette that pops on the shelf, these bags grab your attention as soon as you glance their way. Now everyone will want to include them in summertime recipes!


Maybe it’s the millennial in me, but the minute I see minimalist packaging I can’t help but swoon. Windset Farms® captured my heart with its Duet Snack Pack, packaged with two summertime veggie staples: sweet mini grape tomatoes and bite-sized cucumbers. The pack seals up tight, meaning we on-the-move folks can toss it into our bags for trips or as a healthy option on our lunch break, without worrying about the contents spilling out. With clean lines, clear packaging, and grab-and-go ease, the beauty of this snack pack speaks for itself and will have shoppers stopping to check out this healthy treat.

A snack you can stack? Yes please! I’m a sucker for a rhyme, especially when it’s snack-themed. DelFrescoPure®’s latest offering is perfect for both school lunches and that mid-afternoon slump. These three 5 oz snack-sized stacks of strawberries, filled with greenhouse-grown YES!Berries Your Everyday Snack™, are a perfect addition to the snacking category. So, take apart that stack and get yourself a snack.

Anyone who knows me can attest to my love of dogs, so the squeal that came out of my mouth when I saw these snack trays was one of genuine delight. Shaped like a paw, the trays feature four healthy snacks, each clearly labeled and easy to see. Kids will delight in seeing their favorite characters on the front, and parents will rejoice in having a healthy option for the little ones to gobble up. If Ryder and his team of crime-fighting pups say these snacks are good for you, kids are sure to listen!

Squash always reminds me of evenings at my aunt’s, making her famous zucchini pie. Suffice it to say, the vegetable has a special place in my heart, and I’m always trying to incorporate it into new meals. Bay Baby’s Delicata squash packaging speaks to other die-hard squash fans: sometimes the product says more than the packaging ever can. With see-through mesh holding two squashes together, it’s packaged to show off the veggie inside. Time to start grillin’!
