SkinnyDipped Releasing Peanuts Coated In Chocolate, Strawberry

SkinnyDipped is debuting peanuts coated in milk chocolate and a PB&J variety featuring real strawberry that are gluten-free, made with non-GMO ingredients and no artificial flavors or colors, according to the company.

The line is made with Virginia-grown nuts, and has five grams of plant protein per serving and half the sugar of comparable products, the company reports.

“Peanuts are often perceived as the ‘less than’ nut, but nutritionally there is much to love, including the fact they have an even bigger protein punch than almonds,” says Val Griffith, company founder and chief of innovation. “We worked hard to give the peanut its day in the sun. Our goal was to capture what we loved about peanuts as kids – yummy peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and that milk chocolatey peanuty candy — but in a much healthier way. These flavors are game-changers — they’re super fun, super crunchy and super nutritious.”

Packing in 3.5-ounce pouches, SkinnyDipped peanuts have a SRP of $4.99.
