Henderson, NC (Oct. 19, 2017) – Convenience Store News has named The Carolina Nut Company’s Honey Roasted Chipotle Peanuts among its Best New Products of 2016. The gourmet flavored peanuts earned the distinction in the Salty Snacks category.
The Honey Roasted Chipotle Peanuts are among the company’s 13 flavors of hand-roasted, North Carolina peanuts. Inspired by family recipes, the company crafts seasoning blends that enhance the enjoyment of the classic, protein-packed peanut.
“We’re honored to have earned this distinction,” says company President John Monahan. “We put a lot of time into developing and testing our flavors to create flavors that truly set us apart in the snack market. And today more than ever, people appreciate that peanuts are packed with nutrients, fiber and heart-healthy Omega 6s.”
The Carolina Nut Company’s distinctive roasting method infuses a flavor and crunch unmatched by any other cooking process. “The way we roast makes all the difference,” says Monahan. Wholesale and retail buyers from across the globe have introduced The Carolina Nut Co. product line to big-box, grocery, drug and specialty food stores. Packaging options include re-sealable bags and cans in a range of sizes. Private labeling opportunities are also available. The variety of flavors affords buyers the opportunity to tailor offerings to their markets with traditional and time-tested, original flavors and those seasoned with new blends inspired by contemporary cuisine.
