Galaxy Nutritional Foods Inc., North Kingstown, R.I., introduced GO VEGGIE Vegan Spread & Dip Minis, what are said to be the only vegan, plant-based substitute for traditional spreads and dips for on-the-go consumers.

Made from coconut, this spread and dip is of dairy, lactose, cholesterol, gluten, preservatives and GMOs, and comes in Chive & Garlic.

"We were keen on expanding this range of popular products into the $124 billion snack category by offering our consumers 100-calorie minis. It's portion control meets calorie control for snackers on the go," says Whitney Velasco-Aznar, vice president of marketing. "Dip it with baby carrots, pretzels or chips, spread it on bagels, sandwiches or wraps. ‘Dip it, spread it, love it!’ is our motto for minis."

Available in conventional and natural grocery stores nationwide, the 5.2-ounce pack contains four 1.3-ounce minis and boasts a suggested retail price of $3.99.
