SALTED SNACK

The winner for the Salted Snack category in this year's Readers' Choice
awards was LAY'S® Poppables™
White Cheddar Flavored Potato
Snacks from Frito Lay North
America, which is part of PepsiCo's
food and beverage portfolio.
These perfectly popped products
were introduced to vending in January
2019. Seasoned with white cheddar inside and
out, these crispy potato puffs are light and airy. With
28 pieces per serving size, the snack indulges consumers' desire to keep
it close at hand.
"We're always working to stay ahead of the curve on what consumers want from their snacking options," said Tyler Chapman, senior vice
president of foodservice, Frito Lay North America. "We're thrilled to
see how well-received Lay's Poppables White Cheddar is in vending
and beyond. We look forward to introducing other innovative brands
and flavors in the future to this channel."

PROTEIN OR MEAT SNACK

For the second year, Automatic Merchandiser has included a Protein or
Meat Snack category in the Readers'
Choice New Products of the Year
Awards. This year, Fiorucci's AllNatural Appetaggios took gold.
This product was launched
in August 2019 in automatic
retail channels. The series includes a
selection of peach or cranberry infused
mozzarella cheese hand-wrapped with a slice of
traditionally aged hard salami or prosciutto. Each of the
four pairings presents a delicious combination of sweet and salty and
are 100% all natural. Appetaggios are available in 16/1.5 oz. packages
and are ready-to-eat, making them an excellent option for snacking.
"We are honored to accept Automatic Merchandiser's Readers'
Choice Award for Best New Product in the Protein and Meat Snacking
Category," said Stephen Docherty, marketing analyst at Fiorucci Foods.
"We pride ourselves in bringing new, innovative products that are both
indulgent and healthy to our loyal consumers. We look forward to
continuing our innovation efforts and bringing the true taste of Italy to
passionate customers around the world."
