Concord Foods announces updates for two leading products
Brockton, Mass. — Concord Foods, a leading innovator of produce companion products, is thrilled to announce packaging and formula updates for the Concord Fresh Success Caramel Apple Wrap as well as the Caramel Apple Kit with M&M’S candies, both of which are currently available at retail stores.
To better meet the needs of consumers, Concord Foods reformulated its popular Fresh Success Caramel Apple Wrap with a recipe that contains no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. The Caramel Apple Wrap, which first launched in 1983, became an immediate success by allowing consumers to easily create caramel apples at home in only five minutes.
The Caramel Apple Wrap, now with a new formula and packaging, continues to provide families with easy-to-make caramel apples. The kit creates up to five caramel apples in only three easy steps: place the wrap on a fresh apple, insert the wooden stick and heat in the oven for five minutes. The Caramel Apple Wrap can be found on retail shelves for $2.89.
“With consumers caring more and more about what ingredients they’re consuming, we were excited at the opportunity to improve the recipe of one of our most popular products,” said Samantha McCaul, marketing manager of Concord Foods. “Shoppers depend on our quality products and we feel this is a step in the right direction to better serve our customers.”
In addition, Concord Foods’ Caramel Apple Kit with M&M’S candies is now available in a new smaller package, which offers more display options and takes up less space on store shelves. Concord Foods is excited to continue its partnership with M&M’S brand parent company, Mars Wrigley, to provide a fun and tasty activity for the family. The Caramel Apple Kit includes microwavable caramel, M&M’S candies and wooden sticks, which is enough to make four decorated caramel apples. Concord Foods’ Caramel Apple Kit with M&M’S candies are available for US$5.99.
“At Concord Foods, we are constantly researching emerging trends to innovate and improve our products,” added McCaul. “Our team takes great pride in developing products that meet consumer needs and create opportunities for our retail partners to increase fresh produce sales.”
Concord Foods is well-known for its line of fall products, which include Candy & Caramel Apple Kits, Caramel Apple Wraps and a range of clean label fruit dips, all of which encourage purchasing fresh fruit.
