Cheesy Vegan Ballpark Nachos arriving at Texas Rangers’ Stadium
Cheesy Vegan Baseball Park Nachos were recently introduced at Globe Life Field in Arlington, TX, home of the Texas Rangers. The new nachos feature tortillas chips with creamy cashew-based queso from the family-owned brand Credo Foods. Married couple Adam and Madeline Salamon, both vegans, founded the company to fill a gap in the market for authentically cheesy queso dips and sauces that were made without animal products.
In addition to Globe Life Field, Credo Foods’ vegan queso was previously offered on the Circuit of the Americas race track in Austin, TX. The company plans to return to the track this year. With the reopening of the COVID-19 pandemic subsidies and concessions, Credo Foods hopes to expand its vegan queso to more stadiums, with the goal of reaching 500 sports arenas by 2025. “One of our goals is to get the most impact.” Adam Salamon, a former tech industry manager, told VegNews. “We want to replace nacho cheese in every stadium in America.”
For the rest of this year’s baseball season, customers will find the new nachos from the vegan baseball stadium in Globe Life Field’s purely vegan cart, which will be offering fans plant-based dishes from 2016. This year Globe Life Field is also one of the selected Stadiums products with Oatly’s vegan oat milk soft ice cream, available from Going Going Green in the lower hall and Karbach Skyporch in the upper hall.
The Ben & Jerry’s from Dips
Not only is the brand replacing milk-based nacho cheese in stadiums across the country, but it also aims to redefine the dip category by developing unique, bold flavors with creative mix-ins. Madeline Salamon created the first iteration of Credo Foods’ Queso as a mac cheese sauce for the couple’s little daughter. Since then, Credo Foods has launched a variety of cashew-based products including medium, flavorful, and chorizo queso flavors, a French onion dip, and three flavors (plain, strawberry, and chive & onion) of cream cheese.
“We want to do almost what Ben & Jerry did with ice cream with the dips category,” said Adam Salamon. To this end, Credo Foods is launching its newest product, Jalapeño Popper Dip, which mimics the flavor of the spicy and flavorful party snack in dip form, in select Whole Foods Market locations in Los Angeles, Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas. June.
On May 10th, Credo Foods will also expand its retail distribution to Sprouts Farmers Market stores across the country offering the medium and spicy flavors of its vegan queso.
