"With the addition of these new snacks, we're not only offering the distinctive tastes consumers have grown to love from the brand, but we've rounded out the offerings by providing the extreme flavors consumers crave."

Since the brand crossed over to the snack chip aisle in 2000, the TGI Fridays snack line has become a consumer favorite in grocery, vending and convenience channels, providing snack options that parallel the flavor combinations on Fridays' menus, the company stated. These new flavors join such staples as the Cheddar & Bacon Potato Skins, Mozzarella Sticks and Onion Rings.
