Handy International Dip-Bite Food Concept Aligns with 2013 Food Trends

  (UNITED STATES, 3/6/2013)

Handy has launched three varieties of its shrimp and crab dip-bites, part of the Gastropub Collection of social seafood. The dip-bites are a combination of shrimp and fresh crab meat, along with other high-quality ingredients that make a delicious creamy dip and then it is stuffed inside a crispy crunchy coating. Diners get the creaminess of a dip in a convenient handheld delicious bite--the dip is in the bite!

Handy’s cheesy Buffalo Shrimp & Crab Dip-Bites offer a new twist on a Buffalo-flavoured classic and contain shrimp, sweet fresh crab meat, zesty hot sauce, cheddar cheese and Sriracha.

 Handy’s Wasabi Shrimp & Crab Dip-Bites

Handy’s cheesy Baja Shrimp & Crab Dip-Bites are inspired by the Mexicali flavours of Baja, and contain shrimp, sweet fresh crab meat, cream cheese, corn, peppers, cheddar cheese and fresh lime.

Handy’s Wasabi Shrimp & Crab Dip-Bites really pack a punch and contain shrimp, sweet fresh crab meat, fresh ginger, garlic, Sriracha, wasabi and mozzarella and cream cheese.

The dip-bites are easy to prepare and serve, cooking in just 3 minutes (freezer to fryer).

Plate them alone or with extra dipping sauce; there is no prep or waste in the kitchen.

Handy’s Executive Chef Nikki Trzeciak stated, “With dips being in the top 3 fastest growing menu items, we wanted to capture their popularity but offer a unique and easy way to enjoy them as a finger food. The flavors are so very distinctively different that your guests will have fun sharing all three.”

With a burst of flavour in every bite and paired with wine, beer or cocktails, restaurants will increase check averages, while keeping diners coming back for more.
