In a world where everyone is constantly on the go, consumers never want to compromise on convenience and flavor for their favorite snacks. The demand for quick, delicious, and shareable snacks has risen in recent years. Circana found that 49 percent of consumers snack three or more times daily. Changing lifestyles and busy schedules increased the demand for convenient, portable food options. One company has capitalized on this growing market and created a treat many consumers haven’t seen before.
The COVID-19 pandemic created a new era of dining habits, with more people seeking healthy and convenient yet satisfying food options. These snacks had to be delicious and easy to prepare, making them ideal for various occasions.
Rosti Stuft Spuds and Stuft Fundu are patented, one-of-a-kind, filled potato and filled cheese products breaking through the hand-held snacks and appetizers category.
The crispy exterior combined with craveable fillings create an explosion of flavors in every bite. Flavors include three cheese, ham and Swiss, Swiss jalapeno, and raclette. “What we’ve done is taken what people love in a hash brown and filled it, which has never been done before. We’ve complemented that with the first-ever handheld fondue bite, which has that crispy alpine Swiss exterior, a melty interior, and many different fillings,” says Stephen Caldwell, CEO and president of Crispy Filled Inc.
Crispy Filled Inc. is adding three more Stuft Craveables in 2024, including Stuft Bagel Bites, Stuft Rice Balls (arancini), and Stuft Slider Patties.
