Food service sales were up 13 percent and sales to supermarkets were up 39 percent. Our core businesses are fundamentally strong and we are optimistic about the balance of fiscal 1992 and beyond."
 On Jan. 10, 1992, J & J announced it expected earnings to be lower than last year's first quarter due primarily to lower-than-expected frozen carbonated beverage sales in the West and Midwest. J & J further indicated the costs of expanding its frozen carbonated beverage business will impact first half results but that it anticipated strong second half sales, the seasonal selling period for its beverage business.

Its principal products include SUPERPRETZEL soft pretzels, ICEE and FROZEN COKE frozen carbonated beverages, frozen treats and desserts, churros and baked goods.
