New Snack Option Offers the Nutritional Benefits of Cottage Cheese and the Creamy, Smooth Texture of Yogurt
Chicago, IL /PRNewswire/ - Today, Kemps® is introducing Kemps® Smooth Cottage Cheese for kids, a revolutionary new cottage cheese with no curds and a smooth and creamy texture. The new offering gives parents a nutritious and delicious option for their kids, as Kemps Smooth Cottage Cheese packs a protein punch with almost twice as much protein per ounce as most yogurts, along with real, blended fruit, probiotics, and no high fructose corn syrup.
"At Kemps, we are always looking for ways to meet consumer needs and know parents are seeking nutritious options that are kid approved," said Nathaniel Renteria, Senior Brand Manager for Kemps. "This new cottage cheese has a smooth and creamy texture, with no curds, and is blended with real fruit flavors, so it's really more like a yogurt, which we know kids love. Plus, parents can feel good about giving it to their kids for lunch or a snack because it has probiotics and almost twice as much protein per ounce as most yogurts – so it's a win-win!"
A Real Smooth Move
According to an Attitudes and Usage Survey conducted by Kemps, over 40% of respondents said they would be motivated to eat cottage cheese if it tasted better and had a better texture. Made with 4% whole milk cottage cheese and mixed with real, blended fruit (no chunks or mixing to do), Kemps Smooth Cottage Cheese combines the flavor and texture (no curds) of yogurt with the nutritional value of traditional cottage cheese.
Launching in three flavors: Mixed Berry, Strawberry and Strawberry Banana, Kemps Smooth Cottage Cheese features special kid-friendly characters in convenient four-ounce, four-cup packs. The product will be available in the dairy aisle at over 2,500 stores across the country, including Walmart Hy-Vee and Cub. Prices may vary depending on location and retailer but start as low as $3.98.
