unearthed®, the leading Mediterranean food brand, is adding a market-first to its frozen dessert range with the launch of its new Jumbo Churros – a giant version of everyone’s favourite sweet Spanish snack.
The new unearthed® Jumbo Churros are the only giant version of the popular churro treat available in the frozen aisle.
unearthed®’s mission is to create authentic recipes that take consumers back to the delicious flavours they have experienced while on holidays abroad. The new Jumbo Churros are a replica of the popular filled versions found in Spain and are topped with cinnamon sugar and chocolate sauce, making them perfect for a tasty dessert. They can also be warmed in the oven from frozen in just 4 – 5 minutes to satisfy consumer’s last-minute cravings for a sweet snack.
The launch comes as the total frozen sector reports a +2% growth compared to the same period two years ago, with frozen confectionary growing significantly faster than the market at +7.8%  as consumers looking for easy, premium treats they can enjoy at home.
The introduction of unearthed®’s Jumbo Churros builds on the brand’s recent expansion into the Frozen Desserts category, joining unearthed®’s Classic Pastel De Nata and Blueberry Pastel De Natas, both delicious versions of the popular Portuguese custard tarts.
unearthed® 4 Jumbo Churros will be available from October in Waitrose, containing four in a pack (224g, RRP £4.50)
Carrie Hollis-Patel, Marketing Manager at The Compleat Food Group, who own unearthed®, said: “At unearthed®, we’re on a mission to offer consumers tasty treats that remind them of their favourite holidays, and our new frozen Jumbo Churros tick this box perfectly.
“We’ve created a delicious version of the much-loved Spanish sweet treat, easy to store in the freezer and therefore instantly on hand to enjoy whenever you fancy them. Our frozen Pastel De Natas have proven hugely successful with consumers, so it was natural for us to build on this success with another European classic.
“What’s more, it’s an easy, luxurious, solution for consumers that want something special to eat at home, as they seek to manage their budgets by reducing spend when dining out.”
