Pizza 73's New Jalapeno Poppers Score a Taste Bud Touchdown for Football Fans

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Jan. 26, 2015) - Pizza 73, one of Western Canada's pizza leaders, has introduced a new menu item that's sure to score a touchdown with football fans on Super Bowl Sunday. The chain has launched Jalapeno Poppers across its 74 locations in Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan, just in time for Super Bowl Sunday.

The Jalapeno Poppers are red jalapeno pepper halves stuffed with tangy chili cream cheese, coated with crunchy bread crumbs and sprinkled with red and green chili flakes. They can be purchased in a mini bucket of eight for $5.99 or as part of Pizza 73's Wing it Box that includes chicken wings, boneless wings, onion rings and jalapeno poppers for $23.99.

"During big events like Super Bowl Sunday, many of our customers are looking for food items that can be easily shared among family and friends," said Pat Finelli, Chief Marketing Officer for Pizza 73. "The Jalapeno Poppers are great for sharing and complement pizza and wings perfectly. With the convenience of the Wing It Box, they are a tasty addition to game day orders."
