Pilgrim’s, St. Cloud, Minn., launched a line of new chicken sausages under its Gold’n Plump label.
Available late April, Gold’n Plump fully cooked chicken sausages feature premium-quality, boneless skinless thigh meat from chickens humanely raised with No Antibiotics–Ever and real ingredients such as bacon, cheeses like Gouda, aged Parmesan and Asiago, peppers, herbs and spices. It also boasts a traditional sausage texture with a coarse grind of chicken and a pork casing.
“Our research shows consumers seek ‘old world style’ sausages, and tend to choose chicken sausages with adventurous flavors,” says Tracy Miller, director of product innovation. “Gold’n Plump fully cooked chicken sausages were artisan made by our culinary experts who worked in our test kitchen to carefully explore and layer real ingredients to create these distinctive combinations.”
The new chicken sausages comes in Bacon Gouda, Hickory Smoked Apple, Italian Cheese & Peppers, Jalapeno Cheddar and Spinach & Asiago varieties, and come vacuum-packed for freshness. Each 12-ounce package includes four, 3-ounce links for a suggested retail price of $5.99. The new sausage line is available in grocers’ refrigerated sausage section.
