DENVER, Feb. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Hammond’s Brands, the parent company of Hammond’s Candies, Old Dominion Peanut Company, McCraw’s Candies, and the recently launched Mellow Snacks, today shared the details of long-awaited new additions to its popular Crisps line. New packaging, refreshed branding, and innovative flavors will help retailers meet an increasing demand for snacks that provide a sugary fix with a salty kick.

Hammond’s new Crisps come in eight complex but perfectly balanced flavors: dark chocolate peanut, sea salt caramel peanut, original peanut, cashew, s’mores, coconut, hickory smoked almond, and cinnamon apple walnut. Six-ounce SUR bags come six per DRC with a suggested retail price that ranges from $2.99 to $3.99, making the Crisps an ideal addition for snack shelves in stores both big and small.

«Snack sales account for a full 40% of the $370 billion US packaged food market and this percentage is expected to grow each year thanks to millennials’ tendencies to snack much more than any other generation,»1 said Andrew Schuman, Hammond’s President and CEO. «From a profit perspective, retailers can’t go wrong with offering a wide variety of snacks for these consumers. Our new Crisps flavors are one way that Hammond’s is fulfilling its commitment to helping these candy sellers satisfy today’s appetites with old-fashioned recipes and fresh ingredients.»

The new line of Crisps will begin helping stores across the nation increase their sales volume in the already proven segment with its first shipment in March. For more information about placing your Crisps order, visit www.hammondscandies.com or call 888-226-3999.

About Hammond’s
Hammond’s Candies began delighting candy lovers with artisan candy canes, beautifully spun ribbon candy, and larger-than-life lollipops when it was founded by the Hammond family in 1920, making it Colorado’s favorite handmade confectioner for decades. In 2007, the company became the Hammond’s Brands that it is today through its acquisition by current President and CEO Andrew Schuman, growing from a much-loved, local candy company to a leading gourmet sweet provider with national regard (and has doubled the number of employees). Since then, Hammond’s has gone on to acquire such companies as McCraw’s Candies in 2010 and Old Dominion Peanut Company in 2012 as well as to gain impressive recognitions for their brand packaging and product innovation.
