Takis, the iconic brand known for its intensely good spicy rolled tortilla chip, today announced the introduction of Takis Intense Nacho, the brand's first non-spicy salty snack offering, alongside a seriously intense partnership with 2x-GRAMMY nominated world-renowned artist, DJ and producer Steve Aoki.
We crafted the ultimate recipe for an equally-daring snack that captures our classic intensity with none of the spice. By teaming up with none other than the international superstar, the brand will take this iconic partnership to the max, working with Aoki to release a special hard-hitting track to the public. Takis also plans to amplify the serious intensity of the campaign across digital platforms with online videos, audio spots and more to make a huge splash.
"It's difficult to describe the exhilaration I feel before stepping on stage to perform, but the intensity of flavors in each bite of Takis snacks is a very close comparison," said Steve Aoki. "I'm all about keeping the energy high before, during, and after my shows, so always keeping a stash of the new Takis® Intense Nacho
flavor on hand is a no-brainer."
Bursting with extremely cheesy flavor, Takis Intense Nacho
gives consumers the ultimate snacking experience in several forms, including Takis Pop!, Takis Rolled Chips and Takis Waves varieties. Each amazingly crunchy bite is jam-packed with the classic, mouth-watering Takis intensity that consumers have grown to know and love, without the famous heat.
Starting this week, consumers across the country can stock up on Takis® Intense Nacho, which is available in different sizes between 2.5 oz. and 9.9 oz. in local stores at a suggested retail price of $2.19 and up to $4.49.
"At Takis®, we're all about giving our fans what they want, so we set out to craft the ultimate recipe for an equally-daring snack that captures all of our classic intensity with none of the spice - a flavor that will surely 'WOW' your tastebuds," said Sandra
Kirkpatrick, Marketing Director
for Takis. "With our new Intense Nacho
line, we're introducing our first-ever, non-spicy variety and ensuring that all Takis® fans can find the snack of their dreams when perusing the snack aisle."
