NEW YORK, Dec. 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Americans sure do love their cheese! In fact, in 2020 alone, the average person ate about 40.2 pounds of cheese. To help fill cheese cravings in a nutritious, delicious way, Whisps Snacks – America's best-selling cheese crisps company – today announced two new cheesy innovations, the first forays outside of its pure cheese crisps category: Whisps Cheese Crumbs and Whisps Cheese Crisps & Nuts. Featuring parmesan and cheddar cheeses exclusively made for Whisps, both new lines are sure to please both cheese fanatics and those seeking keto-friendly, low carb, high protein alternatives.
"Whisps fans are at the core of every decision we make and watching how people incorporate our cheese crisps into their daily lives has inspired our next moves," said Katie Nahoum, SVP of Marketing at Whisps. "In the past five years, we've seen our fans get creative with our Cheese Crisps, using them as an ingredient in their favorite meals and creating savory trail mixes with our Cheese Crisps. With premium, quality cheese as the star of our new Cheese Crumbs and Cheese Crisps & Nuts lines, we're thrilled to introduce new ways to enjoy cheese throughout your day and cannot wait to see what our fans create."
Move Over Breadcrumbs - Cheese Crumbs Will Be Your New Delicious, Low-Carb Choice
Finally, breadcrumbs are joining other culinary staples – like olive oil, vinegar and broths – and getting a much-needed upgrade that delivers the same crunch as breadcrumbs using only 100% real cheese and spices. . Available in Buffalo and Italian Herb, Whisps Cheese Crumbs are made with 14-month aged artisanal parmesan cheese (the only copper kettle parmesan cheese made in the USA) and are low carb, gluten free & keto friendly. Each serving provides 13g of protein and is a good source of calcium.
"Honestly for someone as obsessed with Italian cheese, specifically Parmesan, Whisps has been one of my absolute favorite snacks, and I'm so happy to be able to cook with it now!" said Chef Christian Petroni. "The Italian Herb breadcrumbs are absolutely delicious & 1000% versatile for so many different cooking applications. I also love to have fun with spicy breaded dishes when I'm able to use the Buffalo Cheese Crumbs. Sometimes I need to remind myself to save the cheese crumbs for cooking and not snacking… or do I?"
Swap Sweet Mixes for Savory with Whisps Cheese Crisps & Nuts
Contrary to other snack mixes, which fall short with loads of sugar and unrecognizable ingredients, Whisps Cheese Crisps & Nuts is sure to impress everyone from cheese dabblers to cheese purists. This new line has 8-9g of protein, 3g of net carbs and less than 1g of sugar per serving and is a good source of calcium. The cheese crisps in each mix are made using cheese from family farms that was made by artisan cheesemakers for Whisps' exclusive use.
"Whisps Cheese Crisps & Nuts is the perfect on-the-go snack for anyone, and especially those watching their carb intake," says Registered Dietitian Melissa Rifkin, MS, RDN, CDN. "The combination of nuts and cheese packs a big protein punch which helps keep you feeling fuller, longer. In one serving of Whisps Cheese Crisps & Nuts you also get fiber, another filling nutrient, and calcium to support your bone health."
