Inventure Foods Expands Its Successful TGI Fridays Line of Snacks With New Sweet Potato Skins Variety
Sweet potatoes have soared in popularity recently, due in part to their uniquely sweet flavor and a nutrient-rich profile full of vitamins. In fact, each serving of Sweet Potato Skins provides 50 percent of the daily recommended value of vitamin A. The tantalizingly delicious snacks are made from real sweet potatoes and seasoned with a mild blend of cane sugar, molasses and salt to perfectly accent the natural sweetness of the potatoes.
"TGI Fridays Potato Skins appetizers have been a customer favorite in restaurants since 1974, and our ready-to-eat Potato Skins Snacks have grown to be just as beloved," said Steve Sklar, senior vice president and general manager at Inventure Foods. "With the recent popularity of sweet potatoes, we felt the time was right to introduce a unique spin on the Potato Skins Snacks that would resonate with our consumers."
Sweet Potato Skins join the existing Fridays line of Potato Skins Snacks that includes Cheddar & Bacon, Cheddar & Sour Cream, Jalapeno & Cheddar, Sour Cream & Onion, Chili Cheese and Bacon Ranch varieties. In addition to Potato Skins Snacks, the ready-to-eat snack line includes Crunchy Fries, Onion Rings, Mozzarella Sticks, Jalapeno Poppers and Happy Hour Snack Mixes.
