MADISON, Tenn., Sept. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Tennessee Pride is expanding its snack-sized product line from the breakfast category into the snack and lunch sections of supermarkets with new Premium Minis Hot Dogs and Buns.
New Premium Minis are totally unique. They are half the size of regular hot dogs, made from premium cuts of pork and beef, and come in a soft bun. Each one is individually wrapped in microwaveable, easy-open packages for minimal handling and quick heating.
Research shows that this product is ideal for kids, since they are already assembled and easy to heat. With the trend of increased on-the-go eating, Premium Minis fit right into the busy lifestyles of families – whether it's a quick snack, lunch break or trip to the soccer field.
Premium Minis Hot Dogs and Buns come in 4-count and 6-count packages and are being offered to all Tennessee Pride retail customers. They can be found at Hy-Vee, Kroger, Lowe's Foods, military commissaries, Piggly Wiggly, Shop N Save, Wal-Mart and other fine grocers.
"We are thrilled about entering into new segments of supermarkets with this delicious and convenient product," said Jim Hea, V.P. of Sales and Marketing at Tennessee Pride. "This new product is just another way for Tennessee Pride to help provide mothers with delicious food solutions for their busy lives."
