Bite-Sized Snacks Feature Freshly-Baked Crusts, Premium Ingredients
Fans of HOT POCKETS® brand sandwiches (www.hotpockets.com) can now enjoy their favorite HOT POCKETS flavors packed into bite-sized snacks with the introduction of HOT POCKETS Snack Bites and HOT POCKETS Breakfast Bites. Each of the seven varieties -- which go from the freezer to the plate in just over a minute -- delivers hearty hunger satisfaction and provides a good source of protein, with up to 7 grams per four-piece serving.
These newest additions to the HOT POCKETS family feature freshly-baked crusts around a blend of premium Hickory Ham, Signature Pepperoni and 100% real cheese, for the ultimate hunger-satisfying snack. Also, HOT POCKETS Snack Bites and Breakfast Bites have no artificial flavors.
“Today’s millennials aren’t sitting down to a traditional three meals a day, so the lines have become blurry between meals and snacking,” said Christopher Brody, marketing manager for HOT POCKETS. “Our new HOT POCKETS Snack Bites and Breakfast Bites offer our fans a bite-sized snack version of the hunger curbing power of HOT POCKETS.”
