CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Hissho Sushi, a leading sushi distributor in the U.S., is joining forces with Franks RedHot®, America’s favorite hot sauce, to unveil a new, never-before-tasted sushi roll – the Franks RedHot® Crunchy Buffalo Chicken Roll. Available August 30th at more than 1,000 locations across the country, including grocery stores, hospitals and airports, the inspiration behind the unique roll is America’s love of football and buffalo chicken.
Hissho Sushi, known for delivering exciting flavors and elevated sushi experiences, created the innovative roll to provide consumers with a one-of-a-kind sushi option for tailgating or to enjoy at home. Ideal for both those new to sushi or connoisseurs, the eight-piece flavor-packed Franks RedHot® Crunchy Buffalo Chicken Roll takes an iconic American sauce and pairs it with Japanese tradition, and retails for $5.99.
The new roll includes grilled chicken, cream cheese, avocado and crisp carrots rolled into rice and nori and topped with crunchy fried onions. Hissho Sushi’s expert chefs added a finishing drizzle of Frank’s RedHot®, Japanese BBQ sauce, spicy mayo and a dusting of Frank’s RedHot® seasoning to create the perfect blend of flavor and heat.
“We are thrilled to join forces with such an iconic brand to provide both consumers and retailers with a new innovative sushi option,” said Dan Beem, CEO of Hissho Sushi. “Whether you are new to sushi or a seasoned chopstick veteran, our Frank’s RedHot® Crunchy Buffalo Chicken Roll serves the delicious, fiery and flavorful experience your tastebuds are searching for.”
