MARLBOROUGH, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Barbara’s Organic Snackimals Cereal, the first cereal line in the natural and organic cereal aisle with three fun animal shapes, has been named a “Top Product” of 2013 by Phil Lempert, the Supermarket Guru, and given the official Supermarket Guru Product Seal. In Lempert’s recent “Food News Today” segment, he touted the delicious breakfast cereal as one of two top products of 2013, beating out 260 other new products reviewed, awarding it a coveted rating of 98, out of 100. Noting that only 8 percent of people keep healthy eating resolutions in the New Year, the food trends expert called Barbara’s Organic Snackimals Cinnamon Crunch Cereal “a perfect healthy cereal for both kids and adults.”
“We’re thrilled that Snackimals Cereal is making such a splash with food critics and are honored it was selected for the Supermarket Guru Product Seal,” said Lizzie Bell, senior associate brand manager at Barbara’s. “This recognition from Supermarket Guru is a point of pride for us because we truly believe wholesome foods should be delicious and fun. The fact that a cereal that’s organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, contains 8g of whole grains and only 7g of sugar per serving is also being recognized for its delicious taste and appetite appeal is a step in the right direction.”
Organic Snackimals Cereals feature endangered animal shapes that represent Barbara’s Snackimals characters, including lions, elephants and panda bears in three kid-friendly flavors: Cinnamon Crunch, Vanilla Blast, and new Chocolate Crisp. Made with simple, good-for-you ingredients, such as organic corn and oat flour, this healthful and highly snackable breakfast option is Non-GMO, fat free, a good source of fiber and calcium, and prebiotic for digestive health with its use of nutraflora. All Barbara’s products are made without hydrogenated oil, high fructose corn syrup or refined white sugar. Snackimals cereals are joining Barbara’s popular Snackimals product line of Cookies, available in six delicious flavors: Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip, Cinnamon Sugar, Vanilla, Peanut Butter, and Double Chocolate.
