SHEBOYGAN FALLS, Wis. — Johnsonville Sausage has launched two new handheld sandwiches specifically for the convenience-store market.


The sandwiches come in two varieties: Jalapeno Cheddar Sausage and Beef Hot Dog. Both are packaged in a sealed, microwavable film and feature a Johnsonville link enrobed in golden-brown bread.


The sandwiches offer a quick option for consumers seeking something more substantial for on-the-go occassions, Johnsonville said.


“Our new enrobed handheld sandwiches are a perfect option for in-store displays,” said Austin Van Treeck, product marketing manager for Johnsonville. “With quality ingredients and grab-and-go convenience, these sandwiches are ideal for busy consumers who desire a satisfying meal that can easily be enjoyed without disrupting their daily routine.”


The Jalapeno Cheddar Sausage sandwich is made with 100% naturally hardwood-smoked pork that is filled with cheddar cheese and diced jalapeno peppers. Jalapeno cheddar-flavored products have grown by 63% in menu penetration during the past three years, according to Johnsonville.
