Brands are making the case for consumers to toss the takeout menus, offering a variety of easy frozen, refrigerated and shelf-stable meal options. While some brands put their twist on classics such as pasta, chili and tacos, others got more innovative with products like Swiss hand-held potatoes and cauliflower-based tater tot alternatives. Take a look at some of the products showcased at the 2019 Summer Fancy Food Show in New York City.
