PLANO, Texas, March 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Barbecue has long been a popular flavor in foods and snacks, and new twists on it are continually coming to life. Now fans can crunch into a unique spin on barbecue with SunChips Sweet & Spicy BBQ flavored multigrain snacks -- the first barbecue flavor created by the SunChips brand, part of PepsiCo's Frito-Lay division. Sweet, with a little bit of a kick, the new flavor brings fans of hearty multigrain snacks an authentic barbecue taste experience.

New SunChips Sweet & Spicy BBQ snacks feature sweet flavors, like molasses, brown sugar and honey blended with hints of spice, like chipotle, for balance.   Its rich flavor perfectly complements lunch, especially when paired with a sandwich. Each one-ounce serving of SunChips Sweet & Spicy BBQ snacks – approximately 15 chips – is 140 calories and contains 18 grams of whole grains (recommended consumption of whole grains is at least 48g per day).[1]

"Our fans have told us time and again that they love the taste of authentic barbecue, and are always looking for unique ways to enjoy it. Consumers have come to expect that whole grains and great taste naturally come together in SunChips snacks. We believe Sweet & Spicy BBQ flavored SunChips snacks is just what they've been waiting for," said Tony Matta, vice president of marketing, Frito-Lay.

New SunChips Sweet & Spicy BBQ flavored multigrain snacks are now available nationwide in 10.5-oz. packages for a suggested retail price of $3.99.
