S TA T E O F T H E I N D U S T R Y R E P O R T pany’s 100-Cal packs include three new products: Toastchee 100 Calorie, Toasty 100 Calorie and Nip Chee 100 Calorie, which are layered with peanut butter or cheese. All-natural products are also responding to today’s increasing consumer interest in natural and organic foods, and cracker makers are working hard to fill that appetite. Pepperidge Farm, Inc., Norwalk, CT, introduced Baked Naturals cracker chips, which contain 3.5 to 4 g total fat per 28-g serving and deliver 60 to 65% less fat per serving than the leading potato chips. The new cracker chips are available in Simply Cheddar and Simply Multigrain flavors and offer 18 g whole grains per serving. Children are always a target for snacks, and crackers are no exception. Accordingly, Goldfish Crackers are some of the most popular. Thus, last fall, as moms and kids prepared for back-toschool, Pepperidge Farm launched revamped Goldfish Colors, with brighter colors and natural ingredients. According to the company, the introduction of the even brighter Goldfish Colors Neon crackers, using yellow, orange and purple colors also made from natural ingredients, positions these wholesome crackers as a fun way for families to snack this fall. The need to reduce sodium consumption is also on the minds of many consumers, and sea salt is often seen as a healthier alternative. Responding to that view are the new Special K Sea Salt Cracker Chips from Battle Creek, MI-based Kellogg Company, with only 110 Cal per 30 chips. Promoted along with the sea salt product on www.specialk.com are Sour Cream & Onion Cracker Chips and Multi-Grain Crackers. — Bob Gatty COOKIES Decadently Healthy Cookies Brand / Vendor Dollar Sales ($mil) Whether it’s to meet consumers’ special health and nutritional concerns or satisfy their cravings for something sweet and yummy, cookie makers are responding with new products and line extensions that jazz up the cookie aisle. Yet despite ongoing innovation, the cookie category continues to struggle.
