CHARLOTTE, N.C., July 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Eatsmart Snacks™ is proving that better-for-you snacks don't have to be bland or boring with the help of a hunky outdoorsman named Chip, the star of a first-of-its-kind social mini-series.
Research shows that even though healthy choices are on the rise, 89 percent of consumers still consider taste to be the number one consideration. In addition, 68 percent look for snacks that are fun to eat.
Eatsmart Snacks' new social mini-series brings the flavor and fun that consumers desire with a better-for-you twist. In each Facebook episode, Chip takes snack lovers on an amusing and adventurous journey to discover the boldest flavors in nature. The first one, for example, shows Chip barefoot in the wilderness with his pet "Bold Eagle" in search of the bold flavor of quinoa. Taking a cue from Eatsmart Snacks flavors, the mini-series boldly steps into new social media territory meant to inspire delicious and better-for-you snacking all summer long.
"Contrary to what many people think, you don't have to sacrifice flavor for healthier snacks. You can have both," said Peter Michaud, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Snyder's-Lance Clearview Foods™ Division. "Our new friend, Chip, is going to help us prove that nature provides some of the best flavors that make our Eatsmart Snacks so delicious."
Eatsmart Snacks strives to capture the bold flavors of nature in every bag. Whether it's the new Sea Salt & Lime Dipping Chips that are certified gluten-free and made with potato and chickpea, or the Garden Veggie Sticks made with tomato, potato and spinach, Eatsmart Snacks has flavorful and wholesome products, perfect for summer snack cravings.
Follow along on Facebook as Chip travels the world on the hunt for those bold flavors: Facebook.com/EatsmartSnacks.
