Andy Capp's is a brand of flavored corn and potato snack made to look like French fries. The product was created in 1971 by Goodmark Foods, Inc., which licensed the name and likeness of the comic strip character Andy Capp from Creators Syndicate. Until recent years[when?] the strip was featured on the back of packages. In 1998 Goodmark Foods was acquired by ConAgra Foods, which manufactures and distributes the product to this day.
Andy Capp's fries come in .85 ounce (24 grams) 1 ounce (28 grams), 1.75 ounce (50 grams), 3.0 ounce (85 grams), 3.5 ounce (100 grams), 6 ounce (170 grams), and more recently, 8 ounce (227 grams) packages in three flavors: Hot Fries, Cheddar Fries, and BBQ Fries. Hot Fries were the first popular flavor in this line of snack foods. On the back of some packages, Zesty Ranch was listed as one of the flavors, and was distributed to schools for snack purchases. The Pub Fries, Salsa, Hot Chili Cheese Steak, and White Cheddar Steak Fries flavors have all been discontinued.
The BBQ Fries, after being discontinued, resurfaced in 2011 in a new bag design made to match with the current Hot Fries flavors.
