GRAMERCY, LA (WVUE) -

Just in time for festival season, Zapps is releasing a limited edition collaboration with Drago’s.

Zapp’s Drago’s New Orleans Kettle Style Roasted Garlic Chips will be officially released on April 18 in 5 and 1.5oz bags.

Drago’s is known as the home of the charbroiled oyster, but don’t worry, these chips focus on the oyster’s topping.

“A lot of people thought it would have oyster in it,” said Zapp’s regional vice president Jay Johanson in an interview with our partners at NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune.

Actually, the roaster garlic flavored chips will focus more on the parmesan and spices go on top of Drago’s charbroiled oysters.

While the chips officially hit stores on April 18, Johanson told our partners at NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune that customers should find them in local stores later next week.

The new flavor will be available through July 4, but if they’re popular Zapps could make more.

And if just eating Zapps chips isn’t enough, the Bayou Teche brewery announced a partnership with Zapps to create “Teche’s Classic Gose.”

“This is a salty and sour style of beer brewed with a special blend of seasoning from our favorite chipper in Gramercy,” according to a Facebook post by the brewery.

The new beer’s flavor is inspired by Zapp’s salt and vinegar chips.

"Someone said this is like a Zapp's salt and vinegar chip," said Bayou Teche's Karlos Knott in an interview with our partners at NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune. "It was a total whim, which most of our beers are.”

The limited-release gose is available on tap and in 24-ounce bottles, but will probably sell out within a month. Knott, however, is thinking about making it year-round according to NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune.
