Grilled Chicken with Lime & Chilli and Frilled Pepper Steak are the two flavour additions to the Smith’s portfolio this season, and will be available in 150g packs.

“We know Australian’s are passionate about their Smith’s chips and look forward to new and great tasting flavours,” said Smith’s brand manager Alison Silver.

“Our latest flavour innovations combine the chips we know consumers love with the tantalising flavours of the iconic Aussie BBQ – we think it’s the perfect snack to take along to summer festivities.”

The new Smith’s flavours will be available in Coles, Woolworths, independent supermarkets and select petrodl and convenience stores for RRP $3.29, with the Grilled Pepper Steak flavour also available in 80g and 45g packs.
