Two of Maritimers’ favorite eats have been paired to create Covered Bridge Potato Chip’s new Greco Donair-flavored chips. As its name suggests, the Waterville, New Brunswick manufacturer partnered with another well-known Maritime firm to introduce this latest addition to its ever-expanding product line.
“We’re thrilled to team up with Greco Pizza to produce a unique snack that’s sure to have broad appeal, especially in the Maritimes where the donair ranks up there as one of the region’s most iconic foods,” said Covered Bridge CEO and President Ryan Albright. “It’s a natural fit for both of our companies and our customers.”
For those unfamiliar with the tasty treat, the donair is a tender kebab of ground beef, dressed in a sweet, milky sauce, topped with tomatoes and onions, and wrapped in a warm pita.
Greco Pizza has been serving donairs since it opened its first restaurant in Moncton, NB, in 1977. Today, Greco is one of the largest pizza chain in Atlantic Canada and the donair remains one of the most popular items on its menu. “We are always looking for innovative ways to expand our product offering,” said Greco Pizza CEO and President Mike Whittaker. “Combining two amazing Maritime flavors into one delicious product is a perfect opportunity to do just that. It allows us put a new twist on our unique taste and deliver it to the retail market through Covered Bridge chips.”
