Product Snapshot: In celebration of its 30th anniversary, Kettle Brands is bringing back four of its retired flavors for a limited time: Red Chili, Jalapeno Jack, Salsa with Mesquite and Cheddar Beer. Red Chili, introduced in 1982, mirrors the taste of sriracha sauce combined with a vinegar tang and cayenne pepper. Jalapeno Jack, which debuted in 1989, has a creamy, salty pepper jack cheese base mixed with the spice of red and green peppers and jalapeno flavor. First launched in 1999, Salsa with Mesquite combines the tastes of tomatoes, bell peppers, onion, a garlic blend and lime. Cheddar Beer, which debuted in 2005, pairs tangy sharp cheese with malty beer notes.

Ingredients (Cheddar Beer): Potatoes, safflower and/or sunflower oil, whey, salt, cheddar cheese (pasteurized milk, cheese cultures, salt, enzymes), natural flavors, yeast extract, torula yeast, sugar, lactic acid, citric acid, spice paprika extract (color).
