Ready-to-eat tamales, plant-based bacon, and single origin spices are on this week’s roundup of new products.
FILLO’S: Walking Tamales
FILLO’S recently launched its version of a Latin American classic with Walking Tamales — a shelf-stable, clean-label, and ready-to-eat tamale — in several flavors:
- Bean Salsa Verde (Mild)
- Bean Salsa Roja (Medium)
- Bean Salsa Habanero (Hot)
- Mexican Chocolate Almond (Mild)
- Peanut Butter Piloncillo (Mild)

The new product resembles existing bar products in size and shape and can be eaten straight from the package or warmed in the microwave. Some varieties contain as much as 7 grams of protein per bar.
Walking Tamales are available online through www.fillos.com and Amazon, priced at $17.99 per pack of seven.
