LOS ANGELES (March 17, 2023) – Outstanding Foods, the maker of Addictively Delicious Highly Nutritious® plant-based food products who has disrupted the industry with the first-ever dairy-free cheese balls, recently debuted Outstanding Cookies at Natural Products Expo West.
Founded by iconic Chef Dave Anderson and serial entrepreneur and healthy living enthusiast, Bill Glaser, Outstanding Foods is on a mission to make better-for-you products that have the taste and indulgence we all love about food. One hundred percent plant-based and free of gluten, GMOs, trans fats, and artificial ingredients, Outstanding Foods creates nostalgic, cleaned-up classics that are delicious and nutritious.
“We wanted to start with products people are already craving,” said Bill Glaser, CEO and co-founder, Outstanding Foods. “Our snacks don’t require a new habit. You try it, you’re going to love it, and you happen to get all these nutrients and protein on top of that.”
Outstanding Cheese Balls™
Outstanding Cheese Balls - in Chedda™, Bacon Chedda™, Jalapeno Chedda™, and Garlic Parmesan - are the first-ever dairy-free cheese ball and are delicious and nutritious – a dairy-free dream come true! With an amazing, cheesy crunch, these Cheese Balls are an oh-so satisfying way to meet snack cravings. They are certified gluten-free, have four grams of protein per serving and have 20 essential vitamins and minerals. Available at an SRP of $3.99 per 3-oz. bag, and $2.29 per 1.25oz bag.
Outstanding Cookies are your Grandma’s cookies remixed. They’re made with clean ingredients, five grams of plant-based protein per serving, and 20 essential vitamins & minerals like calcium, iron, zinc and vitamins D, E and B12, from whole food ingredients.
Chef Dave Anderson has captured that moist, chewy texture of the nostalgic cookies we all remember, but Outstanding Cookies are made with nutrients from a proprietary blend of veggies (broccoli, spinach, kale, pumpkin, squash, sweet potato, sunflower seed, cranberry, chlorella, maitake mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms) that provides easy absorption of both macro- and micro- nutrients.
Outstanding Cookies are available in three delicious flavors: Chocolate Chip, Double Chocolate and Oatmeal Raisin. They are 100% dairy-free, egg-free, plant-based, gluten-free, soy-free, kosher and non-GMO. They will be available in the second quarter of 2023 and will be sold online and at select retailers with an SRP of $5.99 per 4-oz. bag.
“We know that consumers today want more from their snacks, which is why everything we do leads with great taste and nutrition,” said Glaser. "Our Cheese Balls, and now Outstanding Cookies, are that perfect snack choice because we believe people shouldn’t have to compromise between flavor and function. These products have been thoughtfully developed to ensure they have the same classic craveable tastes, but with a nutrition panel that reads like a multivitamin!”
