Alexia Debuts Rib Cut BBQ Sweet Potato Fries, Vegetables

Alexia Foods, a marketer of all-natural frozen potatoes, vegetables, breads and side dishes, has rolled out a retail line of Rib Cut BBQ Sweet Potato Fries and Premium Seasoned Vegetables seasoned with a blend of herbs and spices in the United States.

Alexia-Rib-Cut-BBQ-Sweet-Potato-Fries-Rib Cut BBQ Sweet Potato Fries, accented with spicy red pepper, are positioned as a unique twist on the classic sweet potato fry. They serve up nicely as is, or may be featured as the foundation for a Southern-style hash complete with chorizo, onions and cilantro.

“Adding even more variety to the collection of Alexia sweet potato fries, our new Rib Cut BBQ Sweet Potato Fries plays off the popularity of barbeque as one of America’s favorite potato chip flavors. This unique skin-on cut variety is made with farm-fresh sweet potatoes and infuses the flavor of Southern barbeque with a spicy kick,” said Rob Johnson, senior brand manager of Eagle, Idaho, USA-based Alexia Foods, a subsidiary of Omaha, Nebraska-headquartered ConAgra Foods.
