HERSHEY, Pa. — Hershey Co. is expanding its Brookside wholesome snack brand with the addition of Brookside Fruit & Nut Bars.
Hershey said Tuesday that the new offering builds on the success of Brookside Dark Chocolates. Brookside Fruit & Nut Bars are made with wholesome ingredients, including whole roasted almonds, real fruit pieces and Brookside dark chocolate.
In addition, Brookside Fruit & Nut Bars are free of gluten, artificial flavors, cholesterol and trans fat; are a good source of fiber and antioxidant vitamins A, C and E; and are low in sodium. The bars’ packaging sports a clear window that enables consumers to see the snack’s texture and ingredients.
Brookside Fruit & Nut Bars come in three varieties: cranberry with blackberry flavor, cherry with pomegranate flavor and blueberry with acai flavor.
Each variety comes in a 1.4-ounce bar retailing for $1.69, while the cranberry with blackberry flavor and cherry with pomegranate flavor varieties also are available in a four-count multipack priced at $4.99.
All three varieties are available now in select club stores nationwide and will be found in the wholesome snack bar aisle at select retailers starting this month, according to Hershey.
“People love to snack throughout the day and want a broader range of wholesome options. They also want to know what’s in their food, how it’s made and where the ingredients come from,” stated Tony Tyree, vice president of snacks and grocery at Hershey. “Inspired by our consumers’ wholesome snacking preferences, we’ve developed Brookside Fruit & Nut bars, which are crafted from simpler ingredients to create an extraordinarily delicious eating experience that can be enjoyed at any time of day.”
