Alexia Foods and Chef Tyler Florence Invite Consumers to Reinvent an American Classic: the French Fry

Eagle, ID  (Profitable.com)  Celebrity Chef Tyler Florence is partnering with Alexia Foods, a line of premium, all-natural frozen potatoes, appetizers and side dishes, to help make everyday meals extraordinary and to kick-off the brand’s “Reinvent a Classic” campaign. Now through March 2012, consumers across the county are invited to have their culinary opinions heard by helping vote for the next great Alexia french fry flavor to be sold in stores.

Earlier this year, Alexia invited 22 of the country’s top food bloggers to showcase their culinary talents by submitting recipes for the next great french fry flavor. The submissions were narrowed down to the top four, which Florence helped unveil at the annual Foodbuzz Blogger Festival in San Francisco this past weekend. Fans can now view the top four finalists and select their favorite on the Alexia Foods Facebook page. In addition to voting, consumers can get a $1 off coupon for Alexia products, while supplies last, and enter for a chance to win a trip for two to San Francisco complete with dinner prepared by Tyler Florence.

“I’m constantly adding new ingredients and special touches to reinvent classic dishes and now consumers have the chance to help Alexia do the same,” said Florence. “From Bruschetta Waffle Fries with basil and oregano to Thai Spiced Sweet Potato Fries with lime, ginger and red Thai curry, this year’s ‘Reinvent a Classic’ campaign has a flavor for everyone.”

How to Vote:

Now through March 30, 2012, consumers can visit www.Facebook.com/AlexiaFoods and click on the “Reinvent a Classic” tab to cast their vote for one of the following fry flavors:

  • Bruschetta Waffle Fries (created by Farihah Ali of Spice’s Bites)
  • Classic Dill Julienne Fries (created by Angela Williamson of Fab Find Foodie)
  • Thai Spiced Sweet Potato Julienne Fries (created by Marla Meridith of Family Fresh Cooking)
  • Herbes de Provence & Garlic Sweet Potato Julienne Fries (created by Chrystal Baker and Amir Thomas of The Duo Dishes)
