/UCW/ COLUMBUS, OHIO – Progressive Grocer Magazine’s 14th annual competition reviewed products launched between May 2016 – April 2017. Over 200 submissions were thoroughly critiqued for:

  •     Innovation
  •     Overall Value
  •     Functionality
  •     Taste

A winner! Kahiki’s Crispy Tempura Asian BBQ-Style Chicken entrée meal was chosen as one of the winners by Progressive Grocer Magazine’s Editor’s Picks.

Kahiki Foods, the fearless creators of fantastic frozen Asian cuisine, is at it again with their latest premium, taste-bud tickling, 100% natural creation. Progressive Grocer’s reviewers commented, “Consumers want mealtime solutions that are quick, easy and tasty, and we found all three in this zesty oven-finished frozen entrée from Kahiki.” As with all Kahiki’s products, this exceptional Crispy Tempura entrée is made with only 100% natural ingredients, no preservatives, artificial flavors, or MSG added.

Crispy Tempura Asian BBQ-Style Chicken was launched in January 2017 after extensive exploration in Kahiki’s R&D Kitchen. 40% of Millennials want to try ethnic cuisine, especially cuisine with some heat (2015 Millennial Marketing report). The draw to adventurous flavors will find the kick from spicy Gochujang in Kahiki’s Asian BBQ-Style Chicken.

The current Crispy Tempura product lineup:

  •     Asian BBQ-Style Chicken*
  •     Honey Chicken
  •     General Tso’s Chicken
  •     Orange Chicken
  •     Sweet & Sour Chicken

*The Crispy Tempura with the spiciest kick – to date.

After being one of the winners last year with the launch of their unique new line of Bowl & Roll products, Kahiki is proud to be part of the Editor’s Pick for the second year in a row.

“We are delighted by the recognition bestowed by Progressive Grocer Magazine for our latest Crispy Tempura flavor.
