As an alternative to introducing a potato snack in the form of a thin crisp, Trader Joe's launched its Spud Crunchies Potato Snacks with a shape that reminds of fries.
The crunchy snacks are touted as "salty, crunchy, shelf-stable French fries" that are made with just three simple ingredients: American-grown Russet potatoes, canola oil and salt. To achieve the light and crisp texture of the product, a low temperature is used during the cooking process.
Over the past few years, many consumers have been looking for alternatives to potato chips, as well as snacks that help them to rediscover the familiar flavors and textures of potato snacks—that they have come to know and love—in a new way.
