"The Hispanic culture is rich and full of tradition, especially when it comes to food," said Marinela USA Brand Manager Melisenda Barajas. "With obesity rates on the rise, many Hispanics want to live a healthier lifestyle, but changing the flavors and traditions of their diet is not an option for most consumers. We're proud to offer the same authentic flavors to Marinela customers in a perfect 100 calorie portion."



Consumers can enjoy five Marinela 100 Calorie products including Gansito, Pinguinos, Choco Roles, Strawberry Sponch!, and Triki-Trakes. The new 100 Calorie snack cakes and cookies make for a perfect after school or afternoon snack to satisfy those sweet cravings without the guilt.



The launch of Marinela's 100 Calorie line comes on the heels of the brand's successful ZumbAtomic Recharged DVD promotion.



"Our 100 Calorie launch combined with the ZumbAtomic Recharged promotion, shows Marinela USA's commitment to a healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet," said Barajas. "Desserts can certainly be a part of a balanced diet. The key is staying active and controlling portions."



Consumers can find Marinela 100 Calorie products in participating stores nationwide.
