LA JOLLA, Calif., Oct. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Kashi, the premier natural food and lifestyle company, today announced the launch of two new delicious frozen foods, created with its signature Seven Whole Grain blend: Kashi® Chicken Enchilada all natural entree and Kashi Three Cheese Penne all natural entree. The tasty additions from Kashi offer convenient, all natural meal options and a welcomed balance of popular flavor combinations and real food nourishment to spice up the frozen food aisle.
"Our new frozen entrees are satisfyingly delicious—made with great tasting ingredients that provide a unique eating experience of colors, textures and tastes along with the whole grain goodness that Kashi is known for," says Keegan Sheridan, natural food and lifestyle expert at Kashi. "For anyone who doesn't have time to make lunch or dinner from scratch, these are the perfect solution for a complete meal in just a few minutes."
