Frito-Lay's Cracker Jack'D brand announces launch of Cracker Jack'D Energy Trail Mixes, available in chocolate-flavored cherry and mixed berry flavors; products available in 4.5-5 oz. bags for suggested retail of US$3.79

PLANO, Texas , April 28, 2014 (press release) – Cracker Jack'D, a brand from PepsiCo's Frito-Lay division, has unveiled Energy Trail Mixes as a new addition to its on-the-go offerings. Available in two flavors – Chocolate Flavored Cherry and Mixed Berry – the sweet and savory snack option hits store shelves this month. New Cracker Jack'D Energy Trail Mixes include a unique packaging structure that holds fruit pieces in a separate pouch within the larger package, keeping them tasting fresh while ensuring the granola and nuts stay crunchy and ready to be mixed. The seasoned granola mixed snack is ideal for young adults on the go — whether running between classes, enduring the daily commute or jamming on that Saturday morning mountain bike ride.

New Cracker Jack'D Energy Trail Mixes join the brand's existing line-up of exciting snacks that feature a variety of flavors including Cheddar BBQ, Spicy Pizzeria, PB & Chocolate and Berry Yogurt. All flavors are packed with tasty granola clusters mixed with nuts to give consumers a hearty, filling snack.

The Cracker Jack'D brand was created to meet the demands of the on-the-go adult consumer, featuring "snacks with impact" mixes ranging from tasty clusters mixed with nuts, to sweet and salty popcorn and almond piece clusters — all designed to deliver satisfaction to fans throughout the day.

Available in convenience stores and grocery stores nationwide, Cracker Jack'D Energy Trail Mixes can be found in 4.5-5 oz bags for a suggested retail price of $3.79. Additionally, the brand added a new flavor to its Hearty Mix line earlier this year: Chocolate Caramel Artificially Flavored Hearty Mix, available in 3-oz bags for a suggested retail price of $2.49.
