Blaine, Wash., USA â Natureâs Path Foods, Inc. â North Americaâs leading organic cereal maker* â wants consumers to know that not all Toaster Pastries are created equal! The company has added four great-tasting varieties and two new sizes to its popular line of USDA Certified Organic Toaster Pastries â pushing the total to 12. The new flavors include: Cherry Pomegranâ¢, Chocolate, Brown Sugar Maple Cinnâ¢, and unfrosted Brown Sugar Maple Cinnâ¢.
Natureâs Path consumer Ben from Austin, Texas says:
âI just bought and ate your new (Organic) Toaster Pastries. They are wonderful. Still a kid at heart, I am new to a veg-organic-all natural foods lifestyle. I will never have âPop Tartsâ brand again. Your filling is just right and the âcrustâ is really like having the actual crust of a fresh baked pie! Thanks for making them and I canât wait to try more of your products.â
The Natureâs Path Toaster Pastries make a convenient grab-and-go breakfast item or snack food. They are made with whole-grain flour, organic flavors and real fruit fillings. Each pastry is lower in fat than the leading competitorâs brand, with no trans fat and only about 210 calories. At Natureâs Path we use organic palm oil, which has antioxidant qualities and provides a natural balance of saturated and unsaturated fats.
The new Chocolate Organic Toaster Pastry uses Fair Trade Cocoa. Fair Trade certification guarantees fair wages and decent working conditions, benefits workersâ communities and promotes sustainable farming methods.
The new Toaster Pastries join the existing line of frosted and unfrosted Strawberry, Blueberry and Apple Cinnamon six packs. The suggested retail price for these products ranges from $2.59 to $3.29. In addition, two larger Family Packs of 12 pastries each have been added for the frosted Strawberry and Brown Sugar Maple Cinn.
