SunTropics rolls out dairy-free coconut rice puddings

Published 10 May 2017

SunTropics has rolled out its new dairy and gluten free coconut milk based pudding in four flavors: Original, Sea Salt Caramel, Cinnamon, and Classic Cocoa.

Each small batch of whole coconut milk, Thai rice, and freshly shaved coconut is slowly simmered without the use of preservatives and poured into single-serving cups.

"According to recent studies, we see that healthy snacks, convenience foods, and all things coconut are currently on trend in the food market," says SunTropics co-founder Sharon Lao. "In response, we decided to share one of our long-time family favorites from the islands — and it's just as good in snack-sized cups!"

The individual portions of pure coconut milk based puddings are projected to be a hit among consumers. "Coconut is the new black," announces Organic Authority writer Kate Gavlick. "2017 is going to be all coconut, all of the time." Analysis experts of Whole Foods Market agree, naming "Coconut Everything" as one of the top 10 trends of 2017.

But the coconut craze is not the only appeal to consumer demand. As the only dairy free option alongside traditional pudding snack cups, the coconut rice puddings are also forecast to be a hit among both gluten and dairy free demographics. And with no refrigeration required, busy consumers can enjoy the snack with a peel of the package at room temperature, chilled, or heated in the microwave, for an experience Lao describes as "fresh from the stove."
