Tasteful Selections, a specialty potato brand from RPE Inc., released a new flavor in its Tasteful Selections Take & Shake line: Cheddar Cheese, which offers a savory cheddar taste that complements the creamy-rich texture of fresh potatoes.
Aimed for convenience, Take & Shake snack-sized cups are filled with fresh potatoes and an individual seasoning packet with one of four flavors: Cheddar Cheese, Chipotle BBQ, Chili Lime and Black Pepper Rosemary & Thyme.
“We are extremely thrilled to be adding cheddar cheese to our Take & Shake line,” Russell Wysocki, president and chief executive officer of RPE, said in a press release. “The Take & Shake cups provide a healthier option to grab-and-go eating. One of America’s favorite foods can be enjoyed at only 130 calories per cup. We know our consumer will love the addition of the savory cheddar cheese flavor.”
"Take & Shake cups are packed at our award-winning facility and patented 'micro porous' steam-release technology in order to deliver the best possible cooking results," the company said in the release. "A special two-way venting system allows us to maximize shelf life and reduce waste/shrink in the supply chain."
