BOULDER, Colo., May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- EVOL® Foods, Boulder-based maker of made-from-scratch natural and organic frozen meals and snacks, announced a number of its burritos and entrees will now be available at Target stores nationwide. By expanding distribution to a wider audience, EVOL is continuing to share its mission to provide convenient, great-tasting, nutritious frozen food options that focus on using organic, all-natural ingredients.

To kick off EVOL's product distribution at Target, the company will be offering limited time price deals. Starting May 19, and running through June 15, customers will be able to purchase two of the frozen entree bowls for $7 and two of the frozen burritos for $4.

"Our partnership with Target marks an exciting time for EVOL Foods as we expand and grow," said COO and Founder, Phil Anson.

EVOL Burritos
EVOL Foods started with burritos and has recently expanded its burrito product line to include a number of healthy and delicious options. Earlier this year, the company expanded its Classic line of burritos, including its best selling Bean & Cheddar and Cilantro Lime Chicken flavors, to include two new lines – "Plus" Burritos with Guacamole and Gluten Free Burritos.

The new line of Plus Burritos with Guacamole take the frozen burrito experience to the next level by offering hot, delicious burritos with a side service of cool, complementary guacamole. This is the first product in the natural/organic handheld category to offer a convenient, ready-to-eat guacamole packet made from Haas avocados. EVOL is also offering new, dairy-free Gluten Free Burritos for consumers with gluten and daily allergies. Made with a whole grain gluten-free tortilla that holds up in both the freezer and microwave, the new Gluten Free Chicken, Gluten Free Shredded Beef and Gluten Free Chicken Plus burrito options are stuffed with an authentic tomato & roasted corn salsa and the most premium flavors and spices.

EVOL Entrees
EVOL offers a number of chef-inspired frozen entrees for quick, healthy meal options. The popular gluten-free EVOL entree offerings include: a Teriyaki Chicken Bowl, Fire Grilled Steak Bowl, Chicken Enchilada Bake and Bean & Cheddar Enchilada Bake. This spring, EVOL introduced a new line of pasta bowls. These new entree options offer a twist on timeless classics such as macaroni and cheese and other Italian favorites.

The all-natural and vegetarian Truffle Parmesan Mac and Cheese Bowl is an elegant tubetti pasta dish featuring authentic Urbani black truffles from Italy and is topped off with crunchy panko bread crumbs for a finishing touch sure to please the palate. The Chipotle Chicken Mac and Cheese gives a spicy kick to traditional macaroni and cheese, featuring a blend of crushed tortilla chips and panko crumbs for added texture on top of the bowl. Rounding out the new pasta options is an Italian classic, Ziti Bolognese, as well as a Chicken Vegetable Pasta Bowl.

EVOL's products have no artificial flavors, colors, additives, preservatives or fillers. Chicken, beef, pork, eggs and cheese come from animals on US Family Farms that are fed a 100% vegetarian diet and raised without the use of Antibiotics or Hormones. Cheese is rBGH, rBST and rennet free. Grains, vegetables and oils are non-GMO.
