A treat with a healthful twist

Beyond Better Foods, L.L.C., the New York-based maker of Enlightened ice cream and roasted bean snacks, is expanding the brand with a new range of gluten-free Crispy Marshmallow Treats featuring 15 grams of protein. Flavors include original, apple cinnamon, double chocolate and birthday cake.

Dylan Coan, director of business development, said the new product was inspired by a recent trend in protein cookies popping up in supplement shops.

“We wanted to do something different,” he said.

Enlightened Crispy Marshmallow Treats join a product line that includes more than 20 ice cream flavors with more protein and less sugar than traditional varieties and 60 to 100 calories per serving. Flavors range from cold brew coffee to bananas foster. The company also offers roasted broad bean crisps in such varieties as sriracha, garlic and onion and sweet cinnamon.
