    Harvest Snaps Launches Pea-Based Salad Toppers™

    Crunch Better with New Gluten-Free, Baked Green Pea Crisps Exhibiting at PMA Fresh Summit

    Fairfield, CA – Move over croutons, there’s a new way to Crunch Better! Calbee North America is introducing Harvest Snaps Salad Toppers™ Green Pea Crisps at the PMA Fresh Summit Convention + Expo, booth #2423. Made from farm-picked green peas as the #1 ingredient, this new product delivers what salad enthusiasts have been seeking for years: a topper with a crispy crunch that is not too hard, comes in vibrantly delicious flavors, and provides a natural source of plant protein and fiber all while being entirely gluten free. Finally, there’s a no-sacrifices way to add texture and a burst of flavor to salads. 

    Clocking in at only 30 calories per serving, this baked (never fried!) topper is also certified gluten-free, vegetarian friendly, plus completely free of artificial flavors, colors, cholesterol, and the common allergens soy, nuts, wheat and eggs. Designed to take your greens from “ho hum” to “oh wow!”, here’s how the new Harvest Snaps Salad Toppers lineup breaks down: 

    • Garlic Butter: This classic flavor pairs beautifully with the naturally sweet taste of green peas. 
    • Italian Herb: Seasoned with oregano, parsley, and a hint of garlic, these dynamic crisps will take your salad to the next level. 
    • Chipotle: This topper brings on the heat, adding a kick of adventurous flavor that’ll keep you coming back for more.

    As noted by Paul Laubscher, Director of Marketing with Calbee North America, “Our goal is to make salad fun again and toss up a category that’s been long represented by hard, bread-based, croutons or dried fruit and seeds. Harvest Snaps has always been in the produce aisle, so creating a vegetable-first salad topper was a natural product extension. We’re excited for people to start crunching better, while enjoying naturally delicious flavors and a perfectly crispy texture.” 

    In addition to being an ideal pairing for salads, Harvest Snaps Salad Toppers™ Green Pea Crisps are also fantastic sprinkled on soups, used to create a crunchy breading for baked dinner recipes, or for snacking straight out of the bag. Sold in 3oz re-sealable bags, the products are currently available for retailers to carry and planned to be in stores this fall. Harvest Snaps Salad Toppers’ packages are part of the TerraCycle recycling program, an initiative led by Calbee North America to help reduce waste and give back to charity.
