PHOENIX — First We Feast, the entertainment brand behind the Emmy Awards-nominated online video series “Hot Ones,” has launched a line of frozen chicken strips in partnership with John Soules Foods and FoodStory Brands.

The product features proprietary seasonings inspired by the hot sauce lineup on “Hot Ones,” including flavors like spicy garlic, based on the Classic Garlic Fresno sauce, and smoky habanero, based on the Los Calientes Rojo sauce. First We Feast’s chicken strips are now available exclusively in Kroger locations across the United States.

“First We Feast is heating up the freezer aisle with Hot Ones spicy chicken strips — and we can't wait for fans to take a bite," said Chris Schonberger, creator and general manager of First We Feast. “Fans have loved saucing their chicken with our famous hot sauces, but now we’re excited to deliver the Hot Ones experience directly on the chicken strip in one convenient package.”

The launch marks the most recent collaboration between the three companies, following five new Hot Ones Boneless Chicken Bites varieties that rolled out last August. First We Feast also partnered with Kellogg Co. to create the limited-time Pringles Scorchin’ Hot Ones lineup in May 2022.

“We are proud to be expanding our partnership with Hot Ones, building on the success we’ve enjoyed together in bringing the incredible flavors of the Hot Ones show to life for the fans,” said John Soules Jr., chief executive officer of John Soules Foods.
