California Giant Offers Berry Cold Weather Comforts for Consumers
- by Melissa De Leon Chavez
WATSONVILLE, CA - California Giant is looking to freshen up some fall and winter classics with a berry twist. We all have our own favorite comfort foods when it comes to snuggle season, consumers included, so why not show them what they’re missing?
Here’s a few ideas to inspire your customers and push your berry display as the cold season comes:
Raspberry Paleo Muffins with a Pumpkin Twist
Let’s just say we read the title and our stomachs made their presence known. Pumpkin is a staple of the season, and the combination just makes sense. Plus, thanks to Starbucks, it has become something of a buzzword that more than the squash facet of the industry can enjoy. Bonus: bake time is only about 30 minutes. See the full recipe here.
Blackberry Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Fancy to look at but easy to prepare is a beautiful combination for today’s on-the-go consumer market. Offering moms a grilled cheese sandwich that they can make for their children with antioxidants in time for cold and flu season isn’t a bad twist either. Find the recipe here.
Slow Cooker Chicken with a Berry Glaze
With chilly weather setting in, the slow cookers will be coming out. The method is a popular one because it gives you a flavorful dish while not having to be present during the entire cook time. The ability to incorporate berries into this savory preparation opens up an entire market of at-home cookers to the berry aisle. Click here to see the recipe.
These are just a few ideas of how to open up your consumers to the benefits and possibilities a berry twist can present for sweater weather.
