Fresh Express, Orlando, Fla., launched new Chopped Salad Kits in Twisted Caesar varieties and Thai ‘N’ Cashews.
“Our newest Chopped Salad Kits were inspired by popular restaurant menu offerings and trending flavors, as well as a healthy dose of creativity,” says Fabian Pereira, vice president of marketing and innovation. “The talented chefs at the Fresh Express Innovation Center put new twists on the classic Caesar salad and added unexpected ingredients to the Asian Thai salad to bring an exciting, flavorful chef-inspired experience to consumers and more variety in a fast-growing segment.”
“Caesar-based recipe kits are by far the most popular flavor within the category,” adds Pereira. “Our new Twisted Caesar varieties give consumers three delicious ways to prepare the types of Caesar salads they love and enjoy in restaurants.”
Infused with international ingredients, like Thai spiced wonton strips, avocado and dried pineapple, the new Chopped Salad Kits offer familiar favorites with unexpected twists.
