McSweeney’s Premium Jerky & Meat Snacks has introduced Pep’ N Cheddies, a”go-portion” pepperoni and cheddar cheese sticks pack. Packaged in six 25-gram individually portioned easy-peel packs, these portioned snacks are perfect for lunch bags and school backpacks. McSweeney’s Pep’ N Cheddies feature a mild flavoured pepperoni, made with natural ingredients, paired with Bothwell premium cheddar cheese. High in protein, naturally smoked and gluten free, these new snacks were available across Canada as of August 2016. “Busy people want great products even when they’re on the go,” says Kylie Landry, McSweeney’s Brand Manager. “There is an increasing demand for snacks that are not only portable but are also wholesome and nutritious. Busy parents are looking for convenient items they can throw in their kid’s lunches.
