Old Friends, 7-Eleven and Old Dutch, Reunited

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - March 29, 2016) -  We are excited to announce that Old Dutch chips are once again available in 7-Eleven® stores across Canada. The reunion of these two popular brands comes after 7-Eleven customers voiced their appetite in having Old Dutch potato chips back on shelves.

Customers can find Old Dutch traditional flavour favourites such as Canada's top Ketchup chip, the standard go-to Rip-L chips for movie night, Dutch Crunch Jalapeno Cheddar Kettle chips, the new Ridgies selection of appetizer and food truck themes, and the ever popular Hawkins Cheezies just to name a few - in 7-Eleven stores today. Fittingly, Old Dutch chips are produced in Manitoba, the Slurpee® Capital of the World, and have been for six decades in addition to production in Calgary and Hartland.

Nick Angelo, Senior Director of Merchandising for 7-Eleven Canada Inc. says, "We're excited to welcome Old Dutch potato chips back into our stores. Old Dutch is a beloved and nostalgic brand that many Canadians have grown up with, and we look forward to reuniting Slurpee with Old Dutch snacks."

Scott Kelemen, National Director of Marketing from Old Dutch says, "We are thrilled to have Old Dutch products sold again in 7-Eleven stores and are very excited to rekindle our relationship with 7-Eleven and their customers across Canada."
