The Nathan's Famous snacks will offer consumers unique and tasty ready-to-eat snacks that replicate the tastes found within Nathan's popular restaurant menu.

There also will be a Nathan's crinkle cut potato chip available in a single serve 1.25 ounce size that will retail from $.99 to $1.29.

"We're excited to partner with Inventure Foods to see our brand extend into the snack chip aisle," said Wayne Norbitz, president and COO of Nathan's Famous. "Inventure Foods has demonstrated a unique ability to translate popular restaurant menu items into incredibly delicious snack foods. We're looking forward to a taste experience that is Nathan's to the core."

Nathan's Famous began as a single restaurant in Coney Island, Brooklyn in 1916.

Nathan's products are sold in all 50 states and six foreign countries.

"The common denominator within all of our successful snack foods is creating great tasting products that connect with the brand," said Steve Sklar, senior vice president of marketing for Inventure Foods. "The Nathan's Famous menu offers a wide variety of diverse, inspired flavors that will allow us to develop unique snack chips that stand out from the typical 'sour-cream-and-onion' crowd."
