PepsiCo's The Smith’s Snackfood Company is expanding its Thinly Cut chips range with a new Roast Chicken & Thyme flavour.

PepsiCo Australia & New Zealand encompasses three business units including The Smith’s Snackfood Company, PepsiCo Beverages and Bluebird Foods.

The Smith's Snackfood Company markets popular brands like Smith's Chips, Doritos Corn Chips, Twisties, Sunbites Grain Waves, Red Rock Deli, Nobby’s Nuts, Parker’s Pretzels, Cool Pak and Sakata Rice Crackers.

“We are pleased to unveil the latest limited-edition flavour for the Smith’s Thinly Cut range. They make the perfect edition to any social occasion and we can’t wait for consumers to try them,” says Alison Silver, Smith’s Brand Manager.

Smith's Thinly Cut Chips are described as having the same quality and taste of Smith’s Crinkle chips, but are a thinner, crispy chip with a lighter bite.

Made with Aussie potatoes, peeled, sliced and cooked using healthier oils, these popular snack foods are sprinkled with seasonings that have no artificial preservatives, colours, flavours and no added MSG.

The new Roast Chicken & Thyme flavour, available exclusively in a 175g sharing pack size, has an RRP of $3.29.
