Miami, Fla.-based Alpina Foods launched what is said to be the first-ever line of yogurt infused with real coffee.
The new Alpina Café Selections line includes Mocha, Caramel Macchiato, Vanilla Latte and Coffee varieties, and features a combination of smooth creamy Greek yogurt and the bold taste of real coffee. It also provides an excellent source of calcium at just 120 calories per cup.
"Thirty-four percent of Americans drinks coffee, higher than soda consumption. Specialty coffee makes up a large percentage of this growth, which is why we decided to launch Alpina Café Selections," says Gustavo Badino, general manager. "We are always looking to innovate in the dairy aisle. Once we found a recipe that tasted just like the consumer's favorite flavor and were able to include actual Colombian coffee, we knew we had a unique product the consumer would want and enjoy."
Alpina Café Selections is sold in select regional and independent retailers, including ShopRite, Shaw's, Fairway Markets and Lowe's Markets.
