CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Charlotte-headquartered Tropical Foods, a leading snack food provider, is introducing a new line of yogurt pretzel bags. These snack bags are available in seven different flavors, with blueberry, strawberry, and Greek yogurt flavored pretzels being some of the top-sellers.

 “We’ve listened to our customers’ desires for sweet and salty snacks,” said Chad Hartman, Director of Marketing at Tropical Foods. “These flavors are a perfect mix of bold flavors and are easy to grab on the go. Snacking, rather than full meals, is becoming more widespread and this new product meets that trend”
