MILWAUKEE, March 27, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The wait is over. Palermo’s Primo Thin™ is introducing two new flavors of the popular brand and unveiling new packaging that caters to consumers seeking more mindful eating options.
“The new flavors and new look capture what makes Palermo’s Primo Thin a great choice – indulgent taste with lower calories and carbs per serving than other frozen Pizzas,” said John Leonardo, senior director of Marketing. “Primo Thin fills a need not currently served. There are many people who are not necessarily dieting but want to make better choices when they purchase food. Primo Thin delivers exceptional flavor but does so with lower calories and fewer carbs than other frozen Pizzas.” He added that the new package tags Primo Thin as “The Mindful Pizza” – making sure consumers know that the Pizza’s ultra-thin crust and big taste are a perfectly balanced bite.
Joining the Primo Thin line-up are two new flavors – Avocado Club and Southwest Veggie. Avocado Club comes on a whole wheat crust and features avocado cream sauce, bacon, spinach, tomatoes and mozzarella. Southwest Veggie features salsa verde sauce, black beans, corn, roasted peppers, onions and mozzarella. In addition to the two new varieties, Primo Thin is available in 5 Cheese, Pepperoni, Supreme, Margherita, Italian Sausage and Chicken Alfredo. Additionally, Margherita now comes on a crust made with whole wheat.
“Primo Thin is all about offering Pizza lovers the opportunity to indulge mindfully and without reservations,” Leonardo pointed out.
New packaging showcases how appetizing Primo Thin is, while nutritional callouts highlight that it has one of the lowest calorie counts in the industry. The brand’s eight delicious flavors start at only 250 calories per 1/3 Pizza.
Available in the freezer aisle at retailers in select areas throughout the U.S., Primo Thin has a suggested retail price of $5.99.
