Sweet-and-Salty Snack Mixes

The Utz Sweet & Salty Mix was Created with Ferrara

— June 2, 2021 — Marketing
The Utz Sweet & Salty Mix is being launched by the snack brand as a new product in partnership with Ferrera that will deliver a range of flavors for consumers to enjoy. The variety pack features a number of the brand's signature snacks along with several sweet treats that will help consumers to enjoy just the right option that suits their mood. The packs feature an array of cookies, cheeseballs, pretzels and popcorn to position it as the perfect product for fans of both sweet and salty snacks.

CEO of Utz brands Dylan Lisette spoke on the new Utz Sweet & Salty Mix saying, "We are excited to partner with Ferrara on a range of new sweet and salty mix variety packs. Through the snack variety packs we mutually create, we’ll place tens of millions of Utz Brand packages into the hands of consumers across the United States, further accelerating the geographic expansion of Utz Brands. When consumers try our snacks, they repeat purchase at high rates, and we look forward to the exposure and incremental brand trial this will bring to Utz. Aligning Ferrara, Keebler, Mother’s and Utz is a winning combination, and there’s more in store for this creative and powerful partnership."
