Kettle Brand, part of the Diamond Foods® family of snack brands, offers the only baked potato chip made with real sliced potatoes, perfectly seasoned with absolutely nothing artificial. Unlike other brands, Kettle Brand Baked potato chips use only natural seasonings, oils and non-GMO ingredients as part of the brand's Natural Promise.

"The New Year is no longer about resolutions, but finding real solutions for active, healthy lifestyles," said Julie Dunmire, Kettle Brand marketing director. "With a satisfying serving of about 15 chips per perfectly-portioned bag, Kettle Brand Baked 100-calorie packs are a real food solution that let consumers indulge cravings for big flavor and truly enjoy snack time."  

Exclusive Kettle Brand Baked flavors, Aged White Cheddar and Sea Salt & Vinegar have 65 percent less fat than regular potato chips and are the perfect bold-flavored complements to the existing Kettle Brand Baked Sea Salt 100-calorie pack offering. With only 3 grams of fat per bag, the two new 100-calorie packs offer new ways to enjoy deliciously real food, and still tackle New Year's goals.

The latest extensions of the award-winning Kettle Brand Baked line, new 100-calorie Aged White Cheddar and Sea Salt & Vinegar are available online at www.BuyKettleChips.com and select retailers. The San Francisco Chronicle also recently added Kettle Brand's Sea Salt Baked Potato Chip to its 2010 Taster's Choice Hall of Fame and ranked it as the highest scoring product of all food products judged in the year by a discriminating panel of food experts.
