From sustainability and convenience to health benefits and unique flavor profiles, consumers today are craving more from the foods they eat. Here is a roundup of WGB editors' favorite innovative products from October 2018.
Georges Duboeuf Sustainably Sourced Wines
How do you stave off the guilt of having one too many glasses of wine? Make sure it’s sustainably sourced. These gorgeous, value-priced bottles are made from grapes that were ethically farmed in the Pays d’Oc region of southern France and are adorned with wildflowers that grow in the region.
CedarLane Chicken Shawarma Protein Power Bowl
I, like many other consumers, have become obsessed with getting enough protein, and this frozen power bowl offers 22 grams. The antibiotic-free chicken is incredibly tender for a frozen offering and is accompanied by other feel-good ingredients such as quinoa and zucchini.
Chobani has put a new spin on its Greek yogurt line with an easy-to-use, squeezable, resealable pouch. Positioned as a better-for-you, higher-protein alternate to sour cream, Chobani Savor is a tasty topping for baked potatoes, tacos and soups. It can also be used as a base for sauces, dressings and marinades.
Fischer & Weiser’s Mixed Berry Pepper Relish
An ideal accompaniment to brie and crackers, this versatile relish flawlessly blends sweet, tart and spicy. It’s my favorite new addition to cheese boards and appetizers.
