Sweet potatoes, one of the most nutritious vegetables, are now available in single-serve snack packages that cater to health-conscious consumers. Goody Goody brand sweet potato strings are available in 2.45-ounce bags in both natural and salted varieties. The packages contain 75 grams of all-natural product and have a one-year shelf life.

The sweet potato strings are produced by Remerco Agri-Industrial Co. Inc. which is a social enterprise located on the island of Mindoro off the coast of the mainland Luzon in the Philippines.

“Considering there is a traction towards natural foods and snacking without the guilt, we believe that this is an opportune time to offer the product in the U.S.,” said Ino Reyes, director of the company.
