The article focuses on adding new flavors to create excitement in the snack category. Although salty snacks have largely been flat in convenience (c)-stores for the last several years, the potato chip category, for instance, has seen sales increases across all channels as newer flavors have been introduced. Retailers are being presented with a variety of new options to incorporate into their snack sets, and make choices depending on the product and the manufacturer. When there is room, E-Z Mart will take a chance on a new snack and incorporate it into its multivendor snack endcaps, which the company rolled out in March 2004.
