US Foods unveiled a special edition of The Scoop

Special Edition Scoop with a Twist Puts Focus on Bold Flavors and Tried and True Favorites

Rosemont, Ill., 2015-8-11— /EPR Retail News/ — Continuing its focus on product innovation, US Foods today unveiled a special edition of The Scoop, featuring a blend of favorite products from prior Scoop launches and a sampling of new items perfect for summer dining. Calling it Scoop with a Twist, the special edition lineup was inspired from the company’s brand colors, tangerine and citrus, and the refreshing allure of summer.

“This is an exciting time for US Foods and we wanted to share our excitement and reiterate our commitment to our customers’ success by introducing this special edition of Scoop,” said Steve Guberman, chief merchandising officer, US Foods. “As we move forward into the future, we will continue to break ground in innovative products improving operator efficiency and expert support to keep kitchens cooking across America.”

The lineup features three new items, including Devonshire® Premium Mini Key Lime Tarts.  Made with real key-lime juice, a sweet graham cracker cookie crust and a streusel topping, it’s the perfect tangy bite in a mini-dessert.  Monarch® Chimichurri Aioli blends flavors from rich culinary hotspots around the world.  This adaptable, flavorful sauce is made with traditional Argentinian chimichurri, luscious Provençal aioli, fresh herbs, and yuzu – a Japanese citrus flavor.  Rounding out the delicious array of new Scoop items is the Chef’s Line® All Natural Ground Chorizo.  Spicy, simple, and extremely versatile, this chorizo is made with coarsely ground pork, paprika, cumin and more flavorful spices.

In addition to the new items, the company is bringing back favorites from each year, including Chef’s Line® Coffee Ice Cream, Cross Valley Farms® Mini Heirloom Tomatoes and Cross Valley Farms® Baby Kale Trio, made up of baby black kale, baby scarlet kale and wild arugula.

Also making a comeback is the Chef’s Line® Pat Lafrieda Angus Chopped Beef Patty. Crafted from short rib and chuck, these patties are chopped in small batches to yield the finest Angus burgers.  Pair it with the Chef’s Line® All-Butter Croissant Bun and Monarch® House Fry or Sweet Potato House Fry.  Closing out the selection of past Scoop favorites is one of the very first and most popular Metro Deli® items, the Uncured Gourmet Ham.

US Foods continues to invite customers to share their Scoop-based concepts and successes by posting pictures to social media using the #ScoopTalk hashtag. Restaurateurs can then visit usfoods.com/ScoopTalk to see other chefs’ creations.
