The Laughing Cow Launches a Snack that Combines Cheese and Legumes for a Unique Experience

MONTREAL – Reflecting its commitment to offer a variety of simple, nutritious, and delicious snacks, The Laughing Cow® is proud to announce the launch of two new flavours under The Laughing Cow® Mix line, made with a smooth blend of real cheeses, legumes and spices and still in a portion format. The Laughing Cow® Mix Chickpea is enhanced with a blend of fine herbs while the red bean version is enhanced with smoked paprika. With the trend for legume consumption stronger than ever, The Laughing Cow® Mix now offers new flavours that are as bold as they are delicious to bring something new to your sandwiches or wraps, or for a quick and nutritious snack.

The Laughing Cow® has been responding to the changing needs and tastes of consumers for over 100 years and has demonstrated its innovation and relevance through its visionary spirit.

The Laughing Cow® is a positive, forward-looking, 100-year-old brand that now offers a unique experience for the most adventurous consumers looking for something new. We are convinced of the benefits of dairy products, but this does not prevent us from thinking beyond and believing in the complementarity of dairy products, which is our DNA, and legumes, while remaining true to our mission of a healthier and more responsible food for all,” says Marie-Eve Robert, Vice President of Marketing for Bel Canada Group.

A strong consumer trend
In September 2021, Innova Market Insight found that 60% of consumers worldwide want new sensory experiences with aromas, textures and colours, and one third said that unusual flavour combinations influence their food or beverage choices. Also, eating legumes on a regular basis leads to, among other things, improved control of diabetes and a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease (Passeport Santé, October 2021).
