Ocean Mist® Farms Announces Availability of Frost Kissed® Artichokes; Diana McClean Shares
CASTROVILLE, CA - For me, the chilly weather outside means an increase of hoodies and fuzzy socks, but for Ocean Mist® Farms, the frosty air signals something far different: a unique offering’s return to shelves. The supplier is gearing up to welcome its first Frost Kissed® artichoke crop of the season, which is now shipping and will be intermittently available throughout the winter.
“Frost Kissed artichokes offer a unique flavor for a limited time that many shoppers look forward to experiencing when available,” said Diana McClean, Senior Director of Marketing at Ocean Mist Farms. “These artichokes have a unique color to them that is strictly cosmetic and does not impact the quality and actually intensifies the artichoke flavor that artichoke aficionados enjoy.”
When the temperature drops below 32 degrees, the artichoke’s skin darkens, which seals in more flavor and provides a nuttier flavor profile underneath its slightly darker exterior, as explained in a press release. Once cooked, the outer layer peels off, unveiling the familiar green artichoke shoppers know.
Each of Ocean Mist Farms’ Frost Kissed artichokes includes a petal insert to let the shoppers know about this unique condition and highlight it on the shelf, and Frost Kissed POS materials are available for order on the Ocean Mist Farms website.
To highlight the value of Frost Kissed artichokes as a satisfying menu item, the supplier is also rolling out unique recipe inspiration via its social media channels, in addition to providing information on its website to educate consumers about the variety.
“The Frost Kissed artichokes are a seasonal treat we look forward to as we don’t see a freeze every season,” added McClean. “This fall, we’re working to ensure our shoppers are educated on ways to prep the artichoke so they too can enjoy its unique flavor for a limited time when they are available.”
With a unique touch to this consumer favorite, Ocean Mist Farms is helping retailers meet surging demand for high-quality artichokes as we near the holidays.
