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."
