New Mother Earth Pingos for Little Monkeys

New Mother Earth Pingos for Little Monkeys

It’s not a bar, it’s not a cookie, and it’s not a cake. It’s Pingos! Mother Earth has launched an exciting new snack that is sure to be a hit with Kiwi kids and their hungry tummies.

These unique, delicious little muffin balls are filled with three appealing flavoured centres: Chocolate, Strawberry Smoothie and Raspberry Yoghurt, which are made from real milk chocolate, and real fruit and milk ingredients.

Pingos have 25 per cent less fat than other lunchbox snacks* and contain no artificial colours or flavours. The 17 gram balls are easy for little hands to hold and eat with minimal mess.

“We saw a gap for a fun, better-for-you snack for children. The cheeky Pingos monkey and range of yummy flavours appeals to them, while Mums and Dads can be confident they’re giving their children a snack that contains wholesome ingredients,” says Lyn O’Sullivan, Mother Earth Brand Manager.

Mother Earth Pingos are available at supermarkets nationwide at an RRP of $3.69 for a box of eight individually wrapped Pingos.

They enhance the existing range of Mother Earth products, which includes Baked Oaty Slices, Fruit Sticks, Multigrain Cereal Bars and of course, their great range of savoury snacks, nuts and dried fruit.

Mother Earth is a proud sponsor of EnviroSchools and has successfully run the Mother Earth Reward Programme for the last three years, motivating Kiwi kids to help create a more sustainable and healthy environment.
