We’ve rounded up six new products to look out for on your next shopping trip.
Swoon zero-calorie cocktail mixers are an innovative way to enjoy all your favorite cocktails at home with none of the sugar. Swoon uses monk fruit (a small, melon-like fruit native to China) to sweeten its mixers, simple syrups, and other drinks, so none of these zero-sugar alternatives includes any artificial ingredients. Plus, in Margarita, Cucumber Mint, and Ginger Lime flavors, there’s a Swoon Mixer for every weekend-ing occasion.
Finding yourself more on-the-go lately? (Or just too busy to put together a snack at home?) Good news: BelGioioso’s new Artigiano snack cheeses offer the upscale, indulgent flavors of Balsamic & Cipolline and Vino Rosso in convenient individual packages—the perfect solution to any midday slump.
Better-for-you snacking is growing, and Popchips brand is joining the party with its line of grain-free snacks. Made from vitamin-rich cassava root and air-popped, these chips contain 50 percent less fat than traditional fried chips and come in tasty flavors to pair with cheese.
Everyone’s favorite garlic-and-herb cheese spread, Boursin, is branching out to the dairy-free market. Newly released vegan Boursin is made from organic plant-based oils and promises the same irresistible texture and flavor as its dairy-based sibling.
This just in from Murray’s Cheese Caves: Finocchietto Blue, a lovechild of Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Co.’s rindless Bay Blue and a fennel seed-based natural rind from Murray’s Natural Rind Cave. Each wheel is aged for 80 days in a vacuum-and flavor-packed environment. The result? A bold, earthy blue tinged with licorice flavor and a semi-sweet aftertaste.
Volpi’s iconic cured meats are going small. Their 1.5-ounce servings—featuring prosciutto, sopressata, spicy sopressata, and coppa—are a convenient way to take these artisan snacks with you, or serve them safely with friends at a socially distant gathering.
