FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

New entrée-sized Imperial Egg Rolls fromLotus Restaurant Retail & Food Service Products
now available throughout the Upper Midwest

MINNEAPOLIS, MINN. – September 27, 2004 – A good thing just got better. Since 1989, hungry shoppers throughout the Upper Midwest looking for that just-right, quick appetizer or light dinner have been grabbing Lotus Restaurant Retail Food Products’ award-winning Wontons and Vegetarian Egg Rolls out of freezer cases of their favorite grocery stores. Now the grabbing’s even better. Two kinds of Imperial Egg Rolls – Chicken and Pork – are now ready for you, your family, and even guests for a special occasion. 

These new Imperial Egg Rolls offer the same promise of high quality, all natural ingredients and savory taste as the Lotus Restaurant brand has earned with numerous food-critic awards over more than a decade. Like what kind of awards? Like “Best Vietnamese Food” by Mpls. St. Paul Magazine. Like “Best Vietnamese Restaurant” by Twin Cities Reader. Like “Best in the Twin Cities” in four restaurant categories, including “Best Egg Roll” by the readers of City Pages.

The new Imperial Egg Rolls prove that healthy and hefty are not mutually exclusive. 

They contain no MSG (monosodium glutamate), an ingredient all too often found in other frozen products and to which many people have allergic reactions. All of their natural ingredients are fresh and each Egg Roll is individually hand-rolled to ensure a perfect wrap. Only 100 percent vegetable oils are used, ensuring that the pure flavor of the chicken or pork, cabbage, carrots, onions, bean vermicelli, herbs and spices “pop.” 

As for hefty, each package of frozen Imperial Egg Rolls contains five Egg Rolls and weighs an impressive 15 ounces. If you do the math, that’s three ounces per Egg Roll – more than enough to anchor a meal as an entrée, rather than a mere appetizer. 
At around $7.49 a package, they’re a bit pricier than The Regular frozen egg rolls, but, when you consider they are 
Hand Rolled All Natural full entrée sized, contain top-quality natural ingredients, and offer exceptional flavor, you realize they’re a bargain.
