Microwaveable egg rolls offer authentic, oven-baked quality

Nov. 19, 2008

Columbus, Ohio-based Kahiki Foods introduces a new line of microwaveable egg rolls that deliver authentic, oven-baked quality in an unprecedented two-and-a-half minutes, versus the typical 20 minutes it takes to oven bake an egg roll.

Each egg roll is packaged in Kahiki’s EasyCrisp Pouches, so on-the-go consumers can conveniently enjoy egg roll snacks at work, school or home. Available in three flavors — chicken, vegetable and pork and shrimp — they contain 0g trans fat, no MSG or artificial additives and start at just 80 calories per serving. The egg rolls come complete with signature sweet & sour sauce packets for dipping.

“We are bringing to market the first-ever egg roll that’s designed to be microwaved,” says Tim Tsao, vice president of sales & marketing. “This is a value-added proposition for consumers. They get the crunch of an oven-baked product with the portability and convenience of a microwaved product. This category has been lacking new innovation for over six years and now this cutting-edge cooking technology is going to help lift category sales for retailers that carry egg rolls.”
