Better-for-you oat bar brand Bobo's develop its new Strawberry Lemonade Oat Bite flavor by leveraging existing favorites, like Strawberry Stuff'd and Lemon Poppyseed, with innovation accelerated by its state-of-the-art bakery completed in 2022.

Leveraging the capabilities of its production facility​ in Loveland, Colo., Bobo’s was able to “try lots of different flavor combinations,” when developing its next flavor, Henry Hughes, vice president of marketing for Bobo’s told FoodNavigator-USA.

To achieve the look and feel of a homemade snack bar, the facility features automated equipment that replicates the appearance for each bar, allowing Bobo’s to produce one million bars, bites or toaster pastries a day, tripling the output for the company.

When launching a new product, Bobo’s values its consumer feedback “as much as possible while also finding inspiration in other categories,” Hughes said.

He continued, “When launching a new product, we ensure it sticks to who we are as a brand while also providing use for consumers. We follow our brand guidelines and stay true to bringing people home and feeding them like family.”

Bobo’s Strawberry Lemonade Oat Bites will be promoted throughout Bobo’s digital channels, including e-commerce platforms, social media and a webstore that is expected to launch soon.
