FORT WASHINGTON, Pa., July 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Nutrisystem (NASDAQ: NTRI), a leading provider of weight management products and services, announced the addition of four new dinner items to its menu. Chicken and BBQ Beans, Turkey Sausage and Bacon Rigatoni, Chicken and Bacon Ranch Pizza, and the Meatloaf Sandwich will add more flavor combinations to the Company's current line of ready-to-go and frozen dinners. Customers can begin selecting these items with their next orders.
"Our goal is to supply our customers with new and flavorful menu items and to give them choices like pizza, pasta, and sandwiches, which they consider comfort foods," says Sharon Tate, Vice President of Food Development and Quality. "With the introduction of these new items, we're giving customers the opportunity to eat the foods they love while losing weight."
When it comes to new customer favorites, the Company's recently released Sandwich Stuffers—Sloppy Joe, BBQ Seasoned Chicken and Meatballs in Marinara Sauce—are rated highly among customers. These easy-to-prepare dishes are meant to be combined with a whole-wheat roll or wrap and served as a dinner entree on the Nutrisystem® program.
In addition, as of May 2014, artificial flavors and sweeteners have been removed from all breakfast, lunch, and dessert bars. Currently, Nutrisystem is working to expand these reformulations to its bakery and pastry items with a goal to have all of these changes implemented by the end of September 2014.
