SUPPLIER NEWS — Jelly Belly 
is expanding its Chocolate Dips line to include a new sweet flavor. The company said its strawberry flavor will be available in a 2.8-oz. bag. The family of Jelly Bean Chocolate Dips also includes coconut, mint, orange, raspberry and Very Cherry flavors.


In an effort to call out its lineup of heart-healthy cereals, Kellogg announced it will add a new front-of-pack label to nine brands. The company said the “Kellogg’s Heart Healthy Selection” logo will appear on such cereal varieties as Raisin Bran, All Bran, Smart Start and Kellogg’s FiberPlus to remind consumers they have a choice when it comes to eating for their heart.


Select 55 is rolling out the new Select 55 Little Lights line, which includes sleek 8-oz., 35-calorie cans available in 12-packs, as well as 7-oz., 32-calorie clear glass bottles available in six-packs.


“These new sizes for Select 55 provide more options for adults who want to enjoy a great beer with few calories,” said Ryan Moore, senior director at Select 55. “We first introduced Select 55 to provide beer drinkers a premium, lighter light beer option. As our drinkers have evolved, we saw an opportunity in the marketplace and developed ‘Little Lights’ to meet it. We think Select 55 drinkers will find them to be a great option for times when a smaller size is ideal.”
