Leading sausage roll brand Wall’s Pastry has added its first Chicken Scotch Egg to its healthier snacking range.
A simple yet innovative twist to the traditional pork-based snack, the Chicken Scotch Egg has been developed as a healthier alternative with the 113g product containing 2.1g saturated fat, 9g fat, only 197 calories per egg, and 12.3g protein.
Mike Holton, brand manager at Wall’s Pastry, said: “Our category research has shown that there is currently a gap in the market for chilled chicken pastry products and after seeing the success of our chicken pastry rolls, we wanted to continue to expand our range and provide consumers with an innovative and healthier twist on their traditional favourites.
“We’re really excited to be launching a new product that provides a healthier on-the-go and snacking alternative. Whether it’s a quick bite or a lunchtime treat, we want to offer a high protein snack to consumers who are looking for something a little different without any added guilt.
The product is the third in the Wall’s Pastry healthier chicken range, which launched in stores earlier this year. The range also includes the Wall’s Pastry Chicken Jumbo Roll and a four-pack of Wall’s Pastry Chicken Rolls with Sage & Onion.
The range will be available at selected Asda and convenience stores across the UK.
