CVS Pharmacy is expanding its frozen food and better-for-you snack offering at select locations across the U.S. Products include 100 frozen foods from popular brands like Beyond Meat, Bird’s Eye, Ore-Ida, and Amy’s Kitchen, as well as 140-plus better-for-you snacks, including more than 60 that are completely new to CVS shelves. The snack assortment includes brands like LesserEvil, SkinnyDipped, Soley, as well as choices that cater to dietary preferences and offer new flavor combinations.
According to a survey conducted online by The Harris Poll on behalf of CVS Pharmacy in March of 2021, 74 percent of American adults say their meal and/or snack habits have changed during the pandemic. When thinking about choices at home compared to what they would normally do prior to the pandemic, 67 percent of American adults who snack say that in general, they find themselves snacking at home more now, and 52 percent of American adults find themselves choosing better-for-you snacks and meal solutions.
“We are committed to providing our customers with fast, convenient meal and snack options that fit a variety of dietary preferences,” said Marco Leone, senior director of consumables merchandising. “Especially as people are starting to get back on the go, we wanted to make it easier than ever to grab that healthier snack for the car ride or pop in for all of the essentials for a balanced but quick weeknight meal on the way home from work or practice. This expansion allows us to offer even more options from brands our customers know and love in one convenient destination.”
