“For years, it has been our promise as a brand to provide consumers with convenient frozen breakfast sandwiches and breakfast bowls that are full of flavor and made with high-quality ingredients. At a time when consumers are dissatisfied with the current lunch and dinner options available in the frozen aisle, we’re uniquely able to build upon our expertise in breakfast and bring new, flavorful options that consumers can enjoy at lunch, dinner or even snack time,” says Eric Schwartz, group vice president and general manager, Jimmy Dean brand.
The sandwich offerings utilize a patented Heat Fresh microwavable pouch, which makes it possible to heat the frozen sandwich in a single step right inside the package.
“Jimmy Dean is no longer just for breakfast, and the launch of the new lunch and dinner offerings marks the biggest product launch in the brand’s history,” Schwarts adds. “We’re confident that each new product will deliver on our promise to provide consumers with great-tasting, quality food they’ll love.”
The new items are available in the frozen entrées section of grocery stores nationwide for a suggested retail price of $2.49-2.99 for the sandwiches and $2.99-3.49 for the bowls.
