14 New Orleans-Inspired Flavors

From Festive Mardi Gras Coffees to Spicy Cajun-Inspired Chips

— August 30, 2018 — Lifestyle
New Orleans is home to the festivities of Mardi Gras which excites locals and draws in visitors from all over the globe -- to commemorate the annual event, food labels create New Orleans-inspired flavors to deliver a taste of the lively times. Restaurants, vendors, and brands create menus and products that infuse cajun flavors, that adorned with the Mardi Gras colors, and even alter existing food products to commemorate the event.

An example includes Zapp's new potato chip flavors to celebrate the beginning of Mardi Gras -- they are kettle cooked style chips created in three cajun flavors. There is Spicy JCajun Crawtators, Voodoo, and Hotter'nHot Jalapeno. It reflects the spirit of the annual festivities and includes its signature New Orleans Style Potato chips, which are delicious slow-cooked chips cooked in its unique peanut oil mix.

Another example is Community Coffee Co's Medium Roast Mardi Grad King Cake, which is a coffee flavor inspired by the event made with 100% Arabica beans. It is also elevated with notes of vanilla and cinnamon to imitate the taste of the traditional Mardi Gras King Cake.
