Three Ajinomoto products honored with 2024 FABI Awards

The Food & Beverage Innovation Awards (FABI Awards®) honor industry-altering products that shape what’s new and next for the future of food and beverage. The FABI Favorite Award provides special recognition for items that stand out among an already exceptional lineup of products exemplifying creativity, ingenuity, and the ability to expand menu options industry-wide.

The Revel Eats Horchata Bite from Ajinomoto Foods North America (AFNA) was recently named a FABI Favorite through the 2024 National Restaurant Association (NRA) Show. Limited to 10 awardees, the FABI Favorite award is given to products determined to be the most groundbreaking and influential of the year.

Revel Eats Horchata Bites offer the authentic horchata flavor so many consumers adore. Made with cream cheese and the traditional horchata ingredients of cinnamon, vanilla, and rice flour, Horchata Bites are surrounded in a crispy oat breading. FABI judges were impressed with AFNA’s ability to master deep-frying while maintaining a soft interior. They also noted the “elevated and forward-leaning horchata flavor” and innovation of adapting a beverage into a snack.

Two other AFNA products won the 2024 FABI Food & Beverage award: the Revel Eats Guacamole Bite and Posada’s Cruncheros Spinach Artichoke Rolled Taco.

Guacamole Bites from Revel Eats put chips and guacamole all in one craveable bite, made with smashed avocados, diced tomatoes, onions, spicy jalapeño peppers, cilantro, and zesty lime juice in a crispy tortilla chip breading. FABI judges complimented the fresh, bright appearance of the guacamole, even after deep-frying.

Cruncheros Spinach Artichoke Rolled Taco features a freshly made flour tortilla filled with spinach artichoke dip, made with cream cheese, parmesan, spinach, artichokes, and green chiles dipped in a batter that delivers a crispy and crunchy bite. The judges appreciated the unique flavor profile.
