Lehi Valley launches 2 lines of private label snacks
Mesa, Ariz.-based Lehi Valley, a privately-owned snack food company, is introducing a line of private label candied nuts, as well as a line of Hispanic-inspired snacks called Delicias Gloria (or Gloria’s Delights).
The company’s candied nuts feature Maple Bourbon Pecans, Vanilla Cranberry Cashews, Cocoa Roasted Almonds, Ginger Citrus Almonds and Cocoa Coconut Almonds.
“We began experimenting with different nuts, textures and flavors like cocoa, coconut, cranberry and citrus and we quickly realized we could take this to a whole new gourmet experience,” said Christie Frazier-Coleman, vice president of marketing for Lehi Valley Trading Company. “This was truly a collaborative process between the Freeman family (company owners), our Product Innovation team and our Manufacturing team. A lot of creative people came together to use Lehi Valley’s in-house capabilities and help produce some unexpected combinations for consumers looking to indulge in a unique snack with an upscale taste.”
The company’s line of Delicias Gloria Hispanic inspired snacks gets its name from a manufacturing employee, who developed the first product inspiring the line of snacks. The snack line-up includes:
Capirotada: a dessert-inspired blend of salty peanuts, raw almonds and sweet and tart fruits.
PIÑA Picante: sweet and tart pineapple tidbits coated in Lehi Valley’s own picante chili lime seasoning.
Pica Dulce de Fresca: sour power strawberry belts coated in Lehi Valley’s own picante chili lime seasoning.
Mango Picante: sweet mango spears coated in Lehi Valley’s own picante chili lime seasoning blend.
