AN AMAZING SNACK STORY!
The creation of Pita Brittle began in my kitchen on a warm and windy day in September.
I’ve been in the pita chip business since the early 90’s and always had an idea; to find a way to apply toppings to my pita chips. But it wasn’t until I came up with the name, “Pita Brittle”. That’s when it hit me.
Inspired by love, I was excited to start the process of developing a low sugar syrup and making my nut topping combinations. My kitchen counter had many small bowls of nuts, spices and ingredients. When I pulled the first batch of brittle from my oven and bit into a barely cooled morsel, I knew - This. Is It. The truly divine, snacking experience I’ve been looking for.
I left the pan of brittle on the stove to finish cooling and went out for a romantic dinner. Later that night when I got back from my dinner date, I snacked on another piece of cooled brittle and I got even more excited. I remember thinking, “Oh my goodness, this is so unique and so good, I have to share this with everyone.”
The romance didn’t last but the inspiration lives on. I’m thankful for the gift that inspired me.

From restaurant tables to retail stores
The story began in 1992, when Regina made a real estate investment in a three-story building that once housed a restaurant in the rugged old mill city of Lawrence, MA. Regina re-opened the restaurant and quickly learned the business. This is where she forged her identity, sharpened her skills and created her homemade seasoned pita chips. In no time business boomed, customers raved, and her pita chips became house favorites.
After six challenging years of running a restaurant and making pita chips around the clock, she branched out to pursue an idea that developed into a nationally recognized, new snack category in the industry. Regina’s Pita Chips would make the transition from restaurant tables to thousands of supermarket shelves across the Country as Regenie's Pita Chips.
That developed into a nationally recognized, new snack category
Regina’s goal is to dazzle consumers with new ideas, textures, and taste. It’s a big challenge but then she responds to challenges the way chip lovers respond to her snacks; with a robust appetite for more.
It is her personal commitment to healthy living and her passion to create that drives Regina into developing great tasting, healthy snacks for all to enjoy.
