Decas Cranberry Company, the second largest cranberry company in the world, announces the distribution of a single-serve package (.75-ounce) of its low sugar, no fat, kids snack line, Funny Face Dried Cranberries. Available at Meijer -- a Grand Rapids, MI-based retailer that operates 199 supercenters and grocery stores throughout Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky -- the Funny Face single-serve packages are available in four flavors.

With a 75-year history in the cranberry industry, sales in more than 25 countries and seven warehouse locations throughout the U.S., Decas is a trusted resource for retailers and food companies. Launched earlier this year to an overwhelmingly positive response, the Decas Funny Face Dried Cranberries are now available in select retail chains in Illinois, Utah, Idaho, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Wisconsin, Northern California and New England -- and online via Amazon.com as well.

"We saw too many snacks targeting children with fun cartoon characters or experiences, while providing little to no nutritional value -- and our aim was to create the kind of product that could satisfy the needs of today's health-conscience parent and family without sacrificing the fun or taste," says Decas CEO Chuck Dillon. "The Funny Face line of snacks is nutritionally conscious and delicious, and supported by a fun group of fruit characters that come to life on the packages and in our online channels."

"Hoping to make healthy options even easier for today's family, producing a single-serve option for Funny Face seemed the next logical step and we're thrilled that they're now available at Meijer," says CMO Matt Devine.
