Every March, the Produce for Kids team has the pleasure of attending Southeast Produce Council’s Southern Exposure show. While there, we get the opportunity to host a reception for our grocery and produce partners to thank them for their support of Produce for Kids and our mission to create a healthier generation. We also have the chance to get a peek at new products that will be hitting grocery stores, learn more about the latest trends in fresh produce and meet new companies.
Here are a few of our favorite new items from Southern Exposure. Make sure to check out your local grocery store for these items that make the lives of busy parents easier.
- New Marie’s Salad Dressings – new flavors like Roasted Tomato with Parmesan & Basil Vinaigrette, Garlic Parmesan Italian Vinaigrette and Mediterranean Vinaigrette will be hitting grocery shelves soon. We got the opportunity to try these new flavors and they are delicious!
- Stir-Fry Kits from Taylor Farms – When you need to throw together a quick meal, reach for one of these stir-fry kits! With flavors like Teriyaki (a family-favorite!), Sesame Chili, Ginger Garlic and Mandarin Orange, these kits come complete with pre-washed and pre-cut veggies like Brussels sprouts, kale and bok choy that can easily be paired with your favorite protein for a complete meal.
- Young Coconut Water from J&C Tropicals – Whether it’s snowing outside or sunny, drinking out of a real coconut will transport you to a tropical location. These fun coconut even come with their own straw! Perfect for a themed party or Saturday by the pool.
- New Dips from Good Foods – If you love to dip, Good Foods has 2 new dips for you - Tomatillo Avocado Salsa and Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip. Good Foods believes in making good food from real ingredients. There are no artificial ingredients, flavors or preservatives found here.
- Watermelon Radishes from Frieda’s – While this might not be a totally new product, it was new for us! These radishes have a touch of sweetness compared to other radishes and looks similar to a watermelon when cut, thus giving it its name.
