The UK’s favourite sandwich brand, URBAN eat, has unveiled two limited-edition autumn seasonal specials as part of its expanded collection. Vegetarians will be able to enjoy the brand-new ‘Squash’d’ sandwich, whilst Herby chicken provides fans of best-selling chicken sandwiches with a delicious new flavour using the finest seasonal ingredients.
- Squash’d – Roasted butternut squash with caramelised onion chutney and rosemary mascarpone
- Herby Chicken – Roast chicken breast with herby houmous, tomatoes, Regato cheese, mayonnaise and salad leaves
A fifth of shoppers stated that an increase in seasonal or festive specials would encourage them to buy more food and drinks to go. Butternut squash is a staple of autumn menus and Adelie Foods believe the new exciting flavour combination will offer shoppers a different lunchtime option this season and provide a sales boost to retailers. Both products also cater for consumer demands for nutritional products that have natural ingredients, while 8 out of ten shoppers are actively trying to improve their diets.
Isla Owen, head of brand at Adelie Foods, says: “Our seasonal specials continue to prove a huge hit with consumers and we’ve bolstered the range this Autumn with the vegetarian ‘Squash’d’ option, which will appeal to the growing number of shoppers looking for meat-free lunchtime products. With both products on a limited-edition run, we think that their comforting flavours will prove a hit with shoppers and offer something different for the sandwich market.
“When it comes to sandwiches, we know that shoppers want a product that delivers on taste and quality, from a brand they know they can trust. In addition to the limited edition launch, our URBAN eat range contains delicious sandwiches and wraps in a variety of classic and modern world-inspired flavours.”
The autumn seasonal specials are available now until 4 November 2018 from RRP £2.79.
