Hammond's Brands Expands Popular Crisps Line with Snack-Sized Packages and New Gourmet Flavors

Colorado's favorite confectioner gives much-loved crispy treat a new look
 and a new taste to drive more sales for snack retailers

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,"
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,

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.
