Slideshow: New products from PepsiCo, NaFrosting and White Castle

KANSAS CITY — Retail companies are bringing popular flavor combinations to shelves — but with unconventional twists.

White Castle brings the flavor of its sliders into bite-sized pieces thanks to Castle Bites, which can be found in the freezer aisle. Small snacks are made with beef and onions, wrapped in a crust.

“Castle Bites is a fun new way to expand ‘Crave’, providing a delicious option that meets the brand on distinctive taste,” said Lynn Blashford, Chief Marketing Officer, White Castle. “In recent research, consumers let us know they were ready to try and ready to buy. Something they will soon be able to do at retailers across the country.

In the coffee category, NaFrosting combines the classic combination of cream and sugar in coffee icing, a plant-based, dairy-free alternative.

The coffee frosting – which has the texture of frosting – is formulated with a blend of raw honey, organic coconut oil and organic cocoa.

To celebrate the end of summer-inspired products and to usher in the flavors of fall, PepsiCo, Inc. has launched a collection of cola drinks inspired by s’mores. The s’more-themed collection includes three flavors: toasted marshmallow, graham cracker, and chocolate. The drinks are packaged in individual 7.5 oz cans, so they can be easily mixed and matched to create the perfect s’more, according to the company.

“S’mores are one of the most delicious, shameless treats that everyone loves to enjoy in a different way,” said Todd Kaplan, chief marketing officer at Pepsi. “So on the last day of summer, we at Pepsi are excited to introduce a whole new way to s’more with our Pepsi S’mores collection. This new drop lets fans create their own s’mores just the way they like them – with the perfect amounts of graham, marshmallow and chocolate – in a deliciously indulgent drink with zero mess. We can’t wait for fans to try it out.
