New Cape Cod potato chips trim the fat again

HYANNIS, Mass. — Snack maker Snyder Lance has introduced a new Cape Cod brand potato chip flavor to its reduced-fat line of chips: 40% Less Fat Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper.

Cape Cod's 40% Less Fat Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper chips are made with real sea salt and a blend of peppercorns, including a slightly sweet white pepper.

Cape Cod reduced fat potato chips are kettle-cooked in 100% canola oil with no trans fat and contain no chemical additives or dehydrated potato flakes. The chips are made from fresh sliced potatoes then flash-baked and spun to remove excess oil. This method naturally reduces the fat content.

An 8-ounce bag of the new 40% Less Fat variety comes with a SRP of $3.79 and can be found at major retailers.
