These days, we’re all about loading up on nutrient-dense vegetables as part of a balanced, plant-based diet. But with limited supplies at supermarkets, sometimes getting fresh or even frozen or canned veggies can be a challenge.
That’s why we were excited to hear about the recent launch of ZENB’s Veggie Bites, which have a whole cup of vegetables in each resealable pouch. The vegan, organic, and gluten-free snack makes use of the entire vegetable— from top to bottom, with skin, stem, and seeds included—so you benefit from all the fiber (and, as a result, stay fuller for longer).
“ZENB’s new Veggie Bites offer a wholesome snack with a clean label for people on-the-go and for those who love to graze throughout the day,” said Christiane Paul, CMO of ZENB, in a company press release. “We continually strive to be a resource for plant-based eating and education, and I believe the introduction of our new ZENB VeggieBites enhances that mission by giving consumers more product options and a range of flavors to choose from,” she continues.
The snacks come in five flavors: Sweet Potato, Sweet Corn, Summer Beet, Edamame and Red Bell Pepper. And yes, when the brand says they use the whole vegetable in the snack they really mean it: When you dig into the various flavors, you’ll get the corn with the cob, beets with the peel, edamame with the pod, sweet potato with skin, and red bell pepper with stem and seeds. In addition to the vegetables themselves, each snack features a unique flavor profile. Sweet Potato Veggie Bites, for example, are accompanied by mangoes and cinnamon in each pouch.
Prices range from $17.99 for a subscription model or $19.99 for a one-time purchase (both come with five 1.6-ounce pouches) and are available direct-to-consumer only on ZENB.com here. ZENB is currently running a special where first-timers who want to try out a sample pack of Veggie Bites for free just pay shipping & handling with their Veggie Bites Trial.
Now, back to contemplation mode: Shall we start with Corn Veggie Bites with Pineapple and Cardamom or Edamame Veggie Bites with Mango and Spinach? We guess that variety pack is calling, after all.
