Tostitos introduces new Artisan Recipes style chips

BY Jason Owen

 PLANO, Texas — Tostitos, part of parent company Fritos-Lay North America, has introduced a new flavor of tortilla chip as part of its Artisan Recipes line: grilled red pepper and tomato salsa flavored tortilla chips.

This is the fifth flavor in the Tostitos Artisan Recipes line from PepsiCo’s Frito-Lay division, and the new chip draws inspiration from the layered flavors of a rich Mexican mole sauce.

Tostitos Artisan Recipes Grilled Red Pepper and Tomato Salsa flavored tortilla chips are made with a nine-grain blend and real ingredients like ancho chile, smoked paprika, garlic, and onion with roasted red bell pepper, sundried tomato and lime, that are mixed in before cooking. Like all Tostitos Artisan Recipes tortilla chips, they have eight grams of whole grains per one ounce serving.

"When developing new flavors for the Tostitos Artisan Recipes line, we look at culinary trends, knowing that our consumer is on top of what’s new, but also looking for easy ways to incorporate the latest flavor trends into their snacks," said Jody Denton , executive chef at Frito-Lay’s Flavor Kitchen, the company’s culinary research and development center. "With the new Tostitos Artisan Recipes Grilled Red Pepper and Tomato Salsa flavored chips we’ve developed something complex and adventurous, which also happens to be the perfect snack to unwind with at the end of the day."

Kettle Brand expands territory with two new chip flavors

BY Jason Owen

SALEM, Ore. — Kettle Brand is pushing boundaries with two new flavors the company said reflects the preferences of the current consumer, the company announced today.

"Over the past 30 years, we’ve closely tracked trends from around the world, tested thousands of product prototypes and even conducted a national survey on Americans’ taste preferences," said Carolyn Ottenheimer, Kettle Brand’s chief flavor architect of 13 years. "As with our first-of-its kind Salt & Fresh Ground Pepper in 1999 or Cheddar Beer, one of our first People’s Choice chip selections in 2005, these two distinct new flavors embody the preferences of today’s consumer and have the potential to become timeless classics."

Expanding on its line of kettle-cooked potato chips, Kettle Brand revealed two new creations: Maple Bacon and Sweet & Salty. Both new flavors have been in development for over nine months, and the final seasoning combinations were selected from hundreds of prototypes. Extensive testing, a hallmark of Kettle Brand’s innovation process,­ ensures each new product has the perfect balance of flavor.

Verified by the Non-GMO Project, both new flavors reflect the company’s commitment to delivering chips made with all-natural ingredients, and like all Kettle Brand products, are cooked in pure, all-natural oils.

Kettle Brand Maple Bacon and Sweet & Salty chips will be available in grocery and natural food stores beginning this summer in 5-oz. bags for a suggested retail price of $2.69 and 8.5-oz. bags for an SRP of $3.49.
