Minnesota-based Pearson Candy Co. is bringing two limited autumn flavors to the Salted Nut Roll line — Apple Pie and Pumpkin Spice. Apple Pie combines peanuts, caramel and nougat, while Pumpkin Spice has a balance of pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg flavors that blend with the peanuts, caramel, and nougat. Each 1.8-ounce bar has 6 grams of protein.
The company says the flavors were developed based on consumer trends and preferences, stating Apple Pie continues to top the charts for consumer preference in the U.S. and almost 70 percent of people have consumed pumpkin spice flavors with the majority consuming the flavor profile from 1 to 3 times per week.
“Both customers and consumer taste tests have shown that these two new flavor additions will have strong appeal at the shelf. The comforting taste of apple pie and cult-favorite pumpkin spice will be fun flavors for our Salted Nut Roll fans to seek out this fall,” says Randy Klemann, Pearson’s senior vice-president of sales.
