“This new variety is really the best of both worlds for our loyal fans,” said Heidi Daly Ford, Brand Manager for Cape Cod. “It brings back the fan favorite of a cheddar and sour cream combination — but with a 40% less fat twist since our less fat varieties have been so well received by consumers, food editors and bloggers such as Hungry Girl, Fitness Magazine and Cooking Light, among others.”
Like the other reduced fat varieties, 40% Less Fat Aged Cheddar & Sour Cream are all natural and kettle-cooked in 100% canola oil with no trans fat. The chips are then flash baked to remove excess surface oil and to reduce the fat content naturally. As with the entire family of potato chips, this variety is gluten and preservative-free. You will never find a potato flake or fat substitute in a bag of Cape Cod Potato Chips.
A recent Cape Cod Potato Chips survey found that 90% of respondents would switch to the lower fat version of their favorite snack if it tasted the same as the original. Because this variety naturally reduces the fat content during the kettle cooking process, no sacrifices need to be made to the flavoring. Cheddar and sour cream devotees may have found their new favorite variety, with the added benefit of 40% less fat.
The well-known Cape Cod® lighthouse on the package makes it easy for consumers to find among the sea of salty snacks. An 8-ounce bag of the new 40% Less Fat variety retails around $3.49 and can be found at major retailers now or ordered online at CapeCodChips.com.
