PHOENIX, Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading food manufacturer, Inventure Foods (NASDAQ: SNAK), has received a "Best New Product Award" from Convenience Store News (CSN) for its Nathan's Famous Honey Mustard Crunchy Crinkle Fries.

Chosen by a consumer panel administered by a New York-based research firm, entries into this year's "Best New Products Awards" were rated on the basis of taste, value, convenience, healthfulness, quality ingredients, preparation requirements, appearance and packaging.

This year's winners will appear in Convenience Store News' Show Dailies at the NACS Show in addition to being featured prominently in December's print issue of the magazine.

"The unique shape created to resemble the restaurant's french fries, combined with flavorful seasoning is what makes our Nathan's branded specialty snacks a success," said Steve Sklar, senior vice president of marketing for Inventure Foods. "The 'Best New Product Award' provides great third-party validation to our concept, and it's a great nod to our R&D team and the Nathan's brand in general."
