TGI Fridays has added bacon ranch as the latest variety in its potato skins line.

The new snack chip is currently available in convenience stores and vending machines nationwide.

Bacon Ranch Potato Skins are made from real potatoes and use dual sheeting technology to create a dark side and a light side. The suggested retail prices per 1.75-ounce and 3-ounce bags are $1.00 and $1.99-$2.19, respectively.

"To satisfy the current cravings of our consumers, we're introducing a product that combines two flavors, bacon and ranch, that are growing now more than ever," says Steve Sklar, senior vice president and general manager for Inventure Foods, Inc., which licenses the chips. "Flavor development and innovation are always top of mind for us. We're looking forward to continuing to build the brand's portfolio with delicious snacks that consumers will fall in love with."

Potato Skins are also available in Cheddar Bacon, Sour Cream & Onion, Cheddar Sour Cream, Jalapeno Cheddar, and Chili Cheese.

Since the brand crossed over to the snack chip aisle in 2000, the TGI Fridays snack line has become a consumer favorite in grocery, vending and convenience channels, providing premium snack options that parallel the exciting flavor combinations on Fridays' menus. In addition to Potato Skins, snack line staples include Cheddar Cheese Crunchy Fries, Onion Rings, and Mozzarella Sticks.
