ALEXANDRIA, Va.—Don't miss this second of three no-cost webcasts featuring top category trends and new product introductions of some of the hottest new items to hit c-store shelves. NACS showcases both large suppliers and some exciting new entrants in the beverage, snacking and hemp categories.

They include:

Cheesewich, a family-owned snack company that packages all-natural cheeses with meats, such as bacon and salami, for a convenient, easy-to-transport snack or meal.

Coca-Cola with Coffee, the newest cola beverage from the Atlanta-based beverage producer. According to research, three out of four Coke drinkers also enjoy coffee, making the new canned beverage an ideal afternoon pick-me-up.

AHA Sparkling Water, another new Coca-Cola product, which pairs familiar flavors in bold, unexpected ways. For example, two of the eight flavor offerings are black cherry with coffee and peach with honey. The canned water has no sweeteners, calories or sodium.

Hostess has introduced new versions of proven snack products, including a mixed berry Twinkie with a strawberry, raspberry and blueberry puree in the center and a Caramel Ding Dong, which joins the other Ding Dong flavors of Mint, Peanut Butter, White Fudge and Wintermint. In the breakfast department, Hostess has three new offerings: Muffin Sticks, Pecan Spins and the Jumbo Donut with classic glaze.

Ocean Spray is offering its popular juices in new sizes, as well as rolling out Craveology Fruit and Nut Snack Mixes, which combine seeds, nuts and dried fruit with spices and seasonings and provide 6 grams of plant-based protein per serving.

Sungal’s new free-standing shelving system for walk-in coolers comes in a wide range of sizes, can be assembled without tools and gives retailers more merchandising flexibility.

Tree-Rolls are smokable products made with organically grown hemp flowers that are rich in CBD, plus other naturally occurring cannabinoids. The hemp flowers undergo a slow curing process to preserve trichomes, terpenes and cannabinoids, resulting in a smooth, flavorful product to aid in stress relief and relaxation.
