CHICAGO — Eagle Snacks, a division of Reserve Brands, Inc., has introduced two snack products: Poppers and Bursts. Poppers are "potato spheres," according to the company, available in four savory flavors of honey barbeque, habanero, sweet onion and salt and vinegar.
While Poppers feature savory flavors, Bursts have a sweeter side. The new snack items are corn puffs infused with flavors such as cinnamon and sugar, caramel Dulce de Leche and white cheddar.
"Eagle Snacks is back with products and flavors that reflect the palate of today’s snacking constituency," said Scott Lazar, president and chief executive officer of Reserve Brands. "Discerning snackers need variety and a break from the same-old, same-old traditional snack food fare. Eagle is responding with innovative and delicious flavors and textures that provide a truly unique snacking experience to wake up tired taste buds."
Available nationwide, the suggested retail price for both products is $2.79.
