ABBOTT PARK, Ill. – Abbott's ZonePerfect brand has launched Sweet & Salty nutrition bars in cashew pretzel and trail mix varieties.
The company said Friday that the new snack bars "combine the irresistible combination of sweet and salty flavor varieties while providing excellent nutrition."

To mark the launch, Abbott is enabling consumers to request a sample Sweet & Salty bar on ZonePerfect's Facebook page.
The ZonePerfect Sweet & Salty Cashew Pretzel bars combine roasted cashews and sweet yogurt bits with crispy, salty pretzels. And the ZonePerfect Sweet & Salty Trail Mix bars meld the "chewy goodness" of raisins and toasted oats with walnuts, roasted cashews, peanuts and almonds, along with peanut butter, the company said.
ZonePerfect Sweet & Salty bars are sold individually or in packs of five or 12 and are available nationwide in the nutrition aisle at drug stores, supermarkets and mass merchandisers.
