Oscar Mayer P3 Portable Protein Packs are Basically Lunchables for Adults

oscar-mayer-packs

Oscar Mayer’s new P3 Portable Protein Packs are being positioned as an on-the-go healthy snack that features Oscar Mayer Select Meats, Kraft Natural Cheeses, and Planters Nuts.

The P3 Portable Protein Packs comes in four different varieties and all boast a minimum of 13 grams of protein:

  • Applewood Smoked Turkey, Marbled Colby & Monterey Jack Cheese, and Dry Roasted Almonds.
  • Applewood Smoked Ham, Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and Dry Roasted Almonds.
  • Rotisserie Seasoned Chicken, Reduced Fat Cheddar Cheese, and Dry Roasted Peanuts.
  • Slow Roasted Turkey Breast, Reduced Fat Cheddar Cheese, and Dry Roasted Peanuts.

These P3 packs could definitely be a welcome protein substitute to health nuts who are sick of their usual protein bar meal replacement. Think of them as alternatives to Lunchables, for adults, minus the Capri Sun. Of course it’s not as fun as building your own mini pizza, but it’s a bit healthier I suppose.

You can find the P3 Portable Protein Packs at your local grocery or convenience store.

Kraft Cheese Removes Artificial Preservatives from Kraft American Singles

Health benefits don’t typically rank high on the list of reasons people eat processed cheese. Nope, nostalgia, cook-ability, and price pretty much have that category locked down, but that hasn’t stopped America’s favorite lunchbox company from trying to appeal to the clean-eating set with — tada! — an ingredient change.

On Monday, Kraft Foods announced it was removing the artificial preservative sorbic acid from its popular plastic-wrapped American and White American cheese slices. Used to prevent the growth of mold and fungi, the sorbic acid will instead be replaced by natamycin, which the FDA states is a naturally occurring anti-fungal, despite its totally chemical-y sounding name.

Thankfully the change only applies to the full-fat versions of the singles and not the 2%, which means if you’d like, you’ll still be able to indulge in your 100% lab-grown cheese product, albeit a less fatty version, in peace. Good ol’ America.
