Monogram Foods has entered into a licensing agreement with Utz® and Zapp’s® brands to launch a line of unique and different take-home hot appetizers, available in the frozen appetizer section of leading retailers.
The line of hot appetizers includes Zapp’s® Boudin Balls, which are coated with Cajun Crawtator® seasoning and include Cajun-style andouille sausage and rice; Zapp’s® Fried Pickles (thick crinkle-cut pickles battered with Voodoo® seasoning); and Zapp’s® Pimento Cheese Stuffed Jalapeño Peppers that are made with 100% premium Palmettopimento cheese and coated with Hotter N’ Hot® Jalapeño seasoning. Utz Cheese-Filled Cheese Balls were made to look just like the Utz cheeseballs – same color and flavor – with real hot melty cheese inside.
“We are excited to work with Monogram Foods to create new ways for our fans to experience some of our best snack brands in an appetizer form,” Mark Schreiber, Chief Customer Officer, Utz Quality Foods said. “With this relationship, we can provide consumers with new ways to enjoy their favorites, like Zapp’s Voodoo®, Cajun Crawtator® and Hotter N’ Hot® Jalapeño as well as Utz Cheese Balls.” The Utz branded Cheese-Filled Cheese Balls are available nationally at Walmart stores while the Zapp’s branded are available in the Southeast at Walmart stores, select Giant Foods stores, Piggly Wiggly, Supervalu Central Region, Harris Teeter, and Lidl among others.
