Wholesome Mini-Muffins for Kids Now Available in all Food Emporiums

Nyack, NY (PRWEB) June 24, 2004

Monkey Muffins Inc., the makers of all natural mini-muffins for kids, announced today that their products are now available in all Food Emporium stores throughout the tri-state area (NY, NJ, CT).

Monkey Muffins® are wholesome snacks made for little hands that contain no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. The first ingredient in each variety (banana, chocolate chip, and pumpkin) is either a fruit or a vegetable—no doubt why Monkey Muffins® have become so popular with health-conscious parents looking for wholesome lunchbox alternatives.

“We get loads of email from moms who tell us that this is the only way they can get their kids to eat vegetables,” says Lisa Coates, company co-founder. While not claiming to be a substitute for the recommended five servings per day of fruits and vegetables, the company has successfully produced a kid-friendly alternative to mass-produced snack foods.

The availability of Monkey Muffins® at all Food Emporium stores marks the Nyack, NY based company’s entry to the New York City market. “We’re very happy with our arrangement with The Food Emporium,” said Coates. "They share the same commitment to providing high quality foods that we do, which makes us a perfect fit."

The Food Emporium has become synonymous with specialty gourmet and is a destination for natural foods in the New York marketplace. “Our brand recognition is of great tastes with unique offerings, which includes an emphasis on healthier alternatives. I remain aware that increasingly, shopping decisions are made with consideration to wholesome ingredients," says Leo Beggen, The Food Emporium Director of Deli and Bakery.

Monkey Muffins® are available at grocers, specialty food stores, and health food stores throughout the tri-state area (NY, NJ, CT). For more information, visit www. monkeymuffins. com.
