Gourmet Retailer picks Thai Basil Chicken

Our taste buds said thank you. Thin, crispy wrappers with flecks of basil cooked into them encase boldly flavored chicken… The more we eat, the more we think Yum Yum is the perfect name.

Kahiki Foods, Inc., the creators of bold and exciting frozen Asian food, recently earned the prestigious “Editors Pick” award from Gourmet Retailer magazine as one of the top new products of 2016.

The Gourmet Retailer selected Kahiki’s new Thai Basil Chicken Yum Yum Stix™ as one of the top 60 “most original, engaging and downright fun specialty food items introduced at retail over the past year.” They went on to say “Our taste buds said thank you. Thin, crispy wrappers with flecks of basil cooked into them encase boldly flavored chicken… The more we eat, the more we think Yum Yum is the perfect name.” The feature was published in Gourmet Retailer’s August/September issue.

Kahiki’s Yum Yum Stix™ also come in two other flavorful varieties, Korean-style BBQ Pork and Toasted Sesame Chicken. Each variety receives a Kahiki-sized dose of flavor on and inside their crispy seasoned wrappers. Each carton of Yum Yum Stix™ come with approximately 11 Stix that can be eaten as a snack, appetizer or meal by themselves. Yum Yum Stix™ are also made with only 100% Natural ingredients with no preservatives and no artificial flavors. Consumer reaction so far has been even better than expected with over 85% of consumers saying they are likely to try them again. “We’ve never had this kind of positive reaction to a new product before” said Kahiki’s Master of Magical Moments & Multimedia, Scott Corey. “Our fans have told us they love the unique colors, bold flavors, easy prep and fun-to-eat shape.”

Yum Yum Stix™ fit perfectly with today’s consumer trends towards smaller, more frequent meals. In fact, according to Culinary Visions Panel research, 83% of millennials snack on average two or more times every day. That’s a huge increase over Baby Boomers and the trend towards smaller, more frequent meals is leading to exploding sales of snack like items.
