GRAMERCY, La.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--We won’t “bead” around the bush – Zapp’s® New Orleans Kettle Style Potato Chips are infused with all of the authentic flavors, style and spirit of Mardi Gras and are the perfect snack to get the party started. Add to that a chance to win a trip for two to New Orleans, and there’s real excitement in the air!
For the past 30 years, Zapp’s® has created an exclusive, limited time only, Mardi Gras themed bag for the Cajun Crawtator™ New Orleans Kettle Style Potato Chips to celebrate the Mardi Gras season. This year, the bag features a Mardi Gras mask and the famous beads that are synonymous with the Mardi Gras celebration.
With a hearty crunch and unique Cajun-style flavors like Voodoo™, Hotter'n Hot Jalapeño and Spicy Cajun Crawtators™, Zapp’s® was founded in 1985 by Ron Zappe. Thick, zesty, and full of flavor, Zapp’s® outrageously tasty chips are practically guaranteed to put you in the Mardi Gras spirit.
“Each year, Zapp’s® celebrates alongside the festive street parades and hundreds of private balls with family and friends around the Mardi Gras celebration,” said Zapp’s® Vice President of Marketing, Jim Ehlen. “We take great pride in shipping our special-release Mardi Gras Spicy Cajun Crawtators bag far and wide.”
Originally sold only within a 300-mile radius of New Orleans, today Zapp’s® New Orleans Kettle Style Potato Chips ship to 48 states plus Hawaii, following the ever-growing attraction to the flavors of New Orleans.
In addition to the new bag design, Zapp’s® is currently running an “Enter-to-Win” sweepstakes promotion, which will fly two lucky Zapp’s® fans to New Orleans for a weekend to celebrate the city in true Mardi Gras fashion.
