Sabra Dipping Company, the US-based joint venture between PepsiCo and Israel’s Strauss Group, has expanded its line of dips and spreads with the launch of Sabra Guacamole Grab N’ Go.

The new product, launched across the US this month, combines Hass avocados with Tostitos Rolls Tortilla Chips from PepsiCo’s Frito-Lay division in a “complete 220 calorie snack”, Sabra said.

Tracy Luckow, Sabra’s MD for new business, said: “Growth in the category and consumer interest in on-the-go options has driven this innovation… making it even more convenient for avocado lovers to enjoy a delicious daily dose of guacamole.”

According to Sabra, “on-the-go snacks have become so popular that 77% of consumers prefer ready-to-eat snacks such as Guacamole Grab N’ Go over those that need to be prepared”. 

The new line follows the announcement last month of the launch of Sabra Spreads – a three-variety range of hummus refrigerated sandwich spreads.
