"Nubblers are refrigerated fruit chews that come in blueberry pistachio, apricot peach and cherry chocolate flavors at the Student Center Cougar Xpress," said Sybil Reado, retail manager.

Along with Green Plate Foods, UH Dining offers a variety of new options for customers to purchase like kale chips and protein bars at the Cougar Xpress stores across campus.
