Shaws, Star Markets, Market Basket, Stop & Shop, Big Y, Giant Food Stores, Dave’s Marketplace - perfectly free™ hits the road this summer with sampling truck stops at all the cool venues
BOSTON--July 13, 2016 -- Just in time for another hot summer, Incredible Foods ™ today announced that its tasty perfectly free™ non-dairy, allergy-friendly frozen treats have hit the shelves of major supermarkets in New England, New York, New Jersey and other mid-Atlantic states including Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia and Washington D.C.
perfectly free allergy-friendly frozen treats are delicious, low-calorie and free of the Big 8 food allergens: dairy, wheat, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, fish and shellfish. They also are certified gluten-free and kosher, and range from only 25 – 35 calories each, depending on flavor. These bite-sized frozen treats are made with a creamy vanilla core enrobed by a velvety layer of real cherry and blueberry, rich cocoa or salted caramel.
“Millions of households in the U.S. are eating free-from, allergy-friendly foods. And the number is growing as people just want to eat healthier and feel good,” said Kevin Murphy, CEO of Incredible Foods, Inc. “Our contribution to the growing food allergy problem is to develop allergy-friendly food products that are delicious, fun to eat, healthier than many traditional treats and safe for the entire family.”
To provide consumers with opportunities to try perfectly free, a sampling truck will be stopping at 60 venues this summer, stops include the July 15 Luke Bryan concert at Gillette Stadium, the July 23 Kiss Summer Games on Revere Beach, the Lowell Folk Festival on July 30, and Greenfest on August 19-20 at Boston City Hall Plaza.
“The Big 8 food allergens account for 90 percent of all food allergy reactions. In many cases, even trace amounts of a food allergen can cause a bad reaction. Our perfectly free bites are free of these eight major food allergens, making them safe for the whole family to eat. We’re confident that once consumers try perfectly free, they’ll be convinced that food that’s safe for most anyone to eat can taste great too,” Murphy said.
Food allergies affects more than 15 million Americans, one in every 13 children under 18 years of age in the U.S., which is about two children in very classroom, according to Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE).
perfectly free frozen treats are currently available in supermarkets in all New England states, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia and Washington, D.C. The supermarkets carrying perfectly free include Shaws, Star Market, Stop & Shop, Giant Food, Market Basket, Big Y and Dave’s Marketplace.
