Paying homage to the distinctly Jamaican taste known as ‘jerk’, St Mary’s has launched their Jamaican Jerk Chicken Chips, a flavour-packed snack that has hit the shelves in celebration of Jamaica’s 60th anniversary of Independence.

“When it comes to flavours, there’s nothing more sought after or synonymous with Jamaica than jerk,” declared St Mary’s Marketing Manager Erin Mitchell. “From renowned Boston jerk in Portland to the street-corner pan chicken chef, to star-rated restaurants; if jerk is on the menu, it’s a must-have. So, we are delighted to launch St Mary’s Jerk Chicken Potato Chips, inspired by our famed local dish, during Jamaica’s 60th celebrations to highlight the culinary significance of the flavour.

Inspired by jerk chicken, it delivers the earthy, savoury and spicy blend of exotic flavours that consumers have come to associate with the dish in every bite. Wayne and Tami Chin Mitchell’s kids, Jaxson and Atlas, love it, as seen on their YouTube channel ‘Meet The Mitchells’.

With convenience and culinary excitement freshly packed in a 60g bag, St Mary’s has projected a retail price of approximately $250 for consumers to walk away with this treat at their nearest store. The St Mary’s Jerk Chicken Potato Chips, like its predecessors, is gluten- free, has no trans-fat and is cholesterol-free. Additionally, Mitchell noted that with the creation of St Mary’s Jerk Chicken Potato Chips, “Jamaican jerk chicken lovers will no longer be limited to enjoying their favourite delight at set mealtimes; they can now treat themselves to a bag of St Mary’s potato chips anytime, anywhere.”
